"Goddess pose" offers something for everyone. A favorite during pregnancy, it opens the inner thighs, creates space
and eases tension in the abdominal organs while opening the chest. Get
support under the thighs and behind the spine until it feels just right
for you. Feel your front body and your breath open as you allow your
back body to sink and soften into the support beneath you.

Here are some classes featuring Reclining Bound Angle Pose.
We begin the class with hamstring stretches, twists and some core. Getting up onto the feet, we flow into surya namaskar C. This sun salutation promotes pliability in the hip flexors, quads and shoulders. We follow the sun salutation with a fairly long, standing pose flow. Following this flow, we recline into supta baddha konasa, more backbends, and an inversion. Class concludes with savasana and a closing. Enjoy.
A class that focuses on the sacrum and lower back. Much of the class is seated with a section of a few standing poses. The seated poses allow for a supported opening in the lumbar sacrum region of the low back. Props will help with this class.
A prenatal yoga sequence that helps to strengthen, stretch and soothe the lower back. We will move through plenty of squats and hip circles so as your baby grows this strength and flexibility in your pelvis and core will keep you happy and healthy.
Who says we can't have everything in one class?
Restorative postures, breath awareness, Mandala salutations, and vinyasa flow, with progressions and modifications for everyone. In this flow we target every single part of the body and end in a sweet savasana.
When you're feeling low or anxious, just getting out of bed and on your mat can be a struggle, but there's no doubt that moving around, syncing up your breath with your movement, and gently opening the heart and hips will help to disrupt the cycle! Build just a little heat with me, and then open up the front and back of the body. Heart openers (backbends) help with depression, and forward folds are very calming for the nervous system, ESPECIALLY if you focus on breathing deeply, and exhaling fully. You are not alone. Let's do this together. Much love, and remember, feelings are not forever!
This is the final tutorial for a restorative session. All of the poses in this practice are reclining and supported. The only challenge in these poses is the prop setups. Once you get that down, this practice is all about dropping in and chilling out. You want to think Goldie Locks here and arrange the props so that they feel "just right" for you for each practice so that you can deeply rest. In the B side, you will be guided into the poses and have the luxury of time to be in these gently opening postures that allow your body and mind to relax and rejuvenate.
This final restorative practice is the one you will want when you are ready for dessert. This entire practice is filled with reclining, supported postures that allow you to nurture yourself and feel held. It's a perfect practice to slow down and reward yourself with rest after a more challenging session. AND it's the perfect way to relax deeply as a stand-alone session on a day when you feel too tired for an active practice or you just need some extra TLC. Get all of your props out and maybe grab some snuggly socks and an eye pillow to give yourself all of the support you need to truly, deeply rest.
