Learn how to do side plank at any level! Put your knee down if you're new, learn the classic pose, or start to play with variations if you're ready. Side plank requires upper body and core strength, so please work with the bottom knee down if you're newer!
Oh my gosh did we have fun putting this together for you! This rise-and-shine has it all - hip, hamstring and shoulder opening, core and upper body strengthening, endurance-training mentally and physically, standing balance and arm balance and emotional balance! Can't think of a better way to start the day...and we had LAUGHS, too! Grab your mat and let's do this!
Allow things to unfold however they will and see if you can open and receive things you never imagined. Join Kate for a flow that's full of twists and turns and sure to keep you on your toes (hands, head, haha). Just when you think you know what's coming...
Only have 20 minutes but still want the sweat, flow and energy of a longer class? This class gets it all in! Sun salutes, standing poses, arm strengtheners, twists, and CORE! WORK IT and then settle into a lovely hip opener on your back and a sweet savasana to rest.
This class has just enough movement to help you breathe through any stress that you need to rid yourself of so you can find your Groove! There are plenty of options to arm balance and get upside down if thats what you need. And of course we have some invigorating backbends and some juicy hip openers to make this a well rounded and super fun class!
Sacred Energy Arts Flow Classes are the culmination and evolution of over 30 years of Matthew’s extensive training in all of his practices and teachings. With similarities to a more traditional yoga flow class, you will discover the grace and power of the ancient martial arts practices; the balance, flexibility, and peace of Hatha yoga and the increased energy and awareness of the beautiful qigong (energy cultivation) exercises. Seamlessly moving from one discipline and expression to the next, these classes are the hallmark of Sacred Energy Arts.
This is a well-rounded vinyasa practice that will guide you through a gentle warm up, a heat building flow sequence and a relaxing cool down. In each asana see if you can soften the struggle - whether it be physical, emotional or mental. Meet any intense sensation, emotion or negative thought pattern with the breath and with a positive intention. See what naturally begins to shift, strengthen or release on its own. Enjoy!
Get energized in this yummy and delicious flow that will get into all the tight places and spaces that we sometimes ignore in practice. As you unravel these tight spots you will automatically feel better because you'll be able to create more space in the body in places where it was holding onto tension and stress! And guess what? After that you will also mentally feel like you received a reboot...woohoo :)
Use this twisting practice to revitalize and regenerate your whole system! Lots of flow, heat and challenging poses. The focus is on twists and revolved poses, to help clear away stress and tightness. Enjoy Yogis!
Setting the tone with the balancing Hakini mudra we play with balance and strength throughout class. The Hakini mudra connects the right and left hemisphere of the brain really centering the body from top down. I hope you enjoy this playful balance inspired flow!
