This is a side-body lengthener where we look to open up the intercostal muscles (breathing muscles) between the ribs. Listen to the cues and learn how to take care of your knees, while keeping the front hip externally rotated, and the back leg active. Breathe a lot.
All of our muscle groups work together to allow expansive movement. In this offering, Dhaujée honors the CHIP (core + hip) connection. A strengthening flow that fires up the abdominals and addresses postures where the hips and core do a sweet dance. See you on the dance floor, aka your yoga mat!
A perfect, very short practice for days when you're really short on time but want to get in your body, move, breathe, open your hips, hamstrings and shoulders, fire up your core, release anxiety and get back to whatever you're doing with more clarity, ease, focus and peace!
A slow flow perfect for pregnant yogis late in the second trimester or in their third trimester. Emphasis is on linking breath and specific movement to help your baby move down into the birth canal as well as helping to reduce stress and anxiety in order to prepare the mind and body for child birth.
In this class you can expect deep breathing, intention setting, sun salutations, a crescent-themed flow, warrior 2, reverse warrior, navasana, reverse tabletop, bridge, wheel, thread the needle, spinal twists and savasana.
