Here are some classes featuring Revolved Triangle 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.
This class starts with spinal stretches into sun salutations. We journey through a flow that includes a variation on side arm balance into a twisty stretch, eagle pose and Warriors 1,2 and 3. Ustrasana starts a series of backbends, and we cool down before savasana. Happy practice, Lauren
This flow practice focuses on cultivating your medicine - exploring the ways in which yoga can help you nurture your body, mind and spirit. Set a positive intention at the beginning and then enjoy a challenging flow class designed to help you go deeper both physically and spiritually. You can expect sun salutations, standing balancing poses, crow pose, inversions, wheel pose, pigeon, and gentle forward folds, twists, and savasana at the end. Namaste, yogis!
This class combines strength, stability and flexibility into one fluid flow, guiding you into standing Bird of Paradise. This is a hip, heart and hamstring opener that requires balance and focus. We will warm up the body, lengthening the hip flexors and building strength in the core so you feel well prepared to take on our peak pose. A great practice for any time of the day!
Diving into the element of EARTH, this practice is to help you feel grounded as you move through your day. We will work with standing poses that help develop stability in the body while learning the optimal alignment for the lower legs to carry the weight of the upper body, adding to a healthy and happy lower back. All levels welcome!
There are days where we may feel strong and light and then there are days we may feel weighed down and weak. This is life. While listening to our bodies is very important as we have built in mechanisms to protect ourselves from harm or injury, I can attest to the fact that the days where I felt the least amount of energy and enthusiasm to practice are the days that I get the most out of my yoga. Not every practice will feel or look the same and that is absolutely ok, but if you are breathing and moving your body you will always find the results of your practice to be positive and uplifting. The best way to get out of a rut is to make a decision and change the habits that keep perpetuating this state of mind. In this class we are challenged to breathe through intense physical poses which can directly correlate to staying calm in difficult situations that occur in our daily lives. Let's breathe and play to become more connected each day!
