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!
Can you get into a totally open mindset about your practice today? Can you work with your body and whatever boundaries it may make known to you as you move, with respect, patience, compassion and understanding? The more you're able to work with the truth of whatever you're dealing with, the more things flow. This is true on your mat (and it's the secret to greater strengthening and opening) and it's true in life! Good to work on ;) This is a fun and energizing flow with some sneaky strengthening slipped in and lots of deep stretching, too! Enjoy yogis!
If you're looking for a fun, creative flow where we play with dropping any agenda or attachment and simply staying curious about what it...look no further! This practice will get your heart pumping and your energy, too. We open the hips, hamstrings, quadriceps, shoulders, and upper back, we fire up the core, and we get upside down. Two blocks and a bolster may be helpful but aren't necessary. All you really need is an open mind and a desire to feel great!
We're back for another quick sculpt! We move through core focused poses that will strengthen the entire body. This practice is perfect by itself or as an additional sequence to your traditional yoga flow. Even the bees came to see what all this core buzz was about!
Quick but powerful core, chest and shoulders class! All you need is 10 minutes and a good attitude, and you will be amazed at how fired up you will be. It might only take 10 minutes, but your core, chest and shoulders will be talking to you for days! Of course you will stretch it out at the end because Angela wouldn't leaving you hanging! Great when you're short on time but want something potent and meaningful.
This is a mixed-level grounding hatha class where we focus on breath and sensation to quiet the mind, and make shapes mindfully to open the body. Great for days when you're feeling a bit anxious or overwhelmed. Detailed cues will give your mind plenty to focus on, and smart sequencing will leave you feeling good.
Hello, yogis! This is an energetic practice with lots of heat-building and core work to make you nice and warm. You're welcome! With all that heat, we give the hamstrings lots of love and attention with variations of side plank that include one-legged side plank and extended hand-to-big-toe pose, but we also open things up with a wide stanced ardha hanumanasana and other goodies, along with active and restorative backbends to balance out all the back-body opening with some front-body sweetness. Enjoy every minute! (Intermediate yogis welcome just listen to your body!) A strap may be helpful.
We start this practice reclining on our mats with a series of twists. There is an emphasis on inward hip rotation to de-compress the sacrum, and some core work. On our feet, we weave balance and standing poses in sun salutations. We end with backbends and an inversion. Enjoy!
According to the ancient sages, after eating a meal, a yogi should allow at least three hours to digest fully before practicing. It's good advice, but it's not always practical in the modern world. Sometimes the only time you have to practice comes on the heels of the only time you have to eat. This is a practice for those times. As always, take your time, and take what works for you... and leave the rest. And of course, don't forget to enjoy :)
