Here are some classes featuring Reclining Bound Angle Pose.
The practice opens with a bit of core work, but from there it's all about stretching. Mostly sitting, a few standing poses. No flow. Save your chaturangas for another day. We finish up with supta baddha konasana and reclined supported bound angle pose, before a gentle inversion and savasana. Chill out and stretch with this one. Enjoy! Lauren
Sometimes we all feel a little stuck - at home, on the road or in a rut. I find doing something familiar in a new way gets me motivated and moving. Familiar is soothing. New is inspiring. This session guides you through familiar poses, like bridge, with some different variations and props to keep it interesting... and to keep you moving! Use a couple of pillows and a towel to get cozy and relaxed at the end of this simple strengthening session.
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!
