A wonderful hamstring strengthener and opener. Extension of the lifted leg is key, as is the rooting and rising of the standing leg. Blocks may be handy to lift the floor up. Relax your neck and spread your toes, yogis.
Lift your heart toward heaven. A deep heart-opening flow that will open your shoulders, upper back and chest and leave you feeling both open and in touch with your own beautiful resilience. Kapotasana variations on your way to a possible kapotasana once we're warm!
This steady and mindful practice will help you feel less stressed and better overall! We dive deep into lunges and hamstring openers. We use slow-moving breath and sequencing to open some of the tightest areas of the body. Finish off with a relaxing heart opener on blocks and restore the body/mind in a healing Savasana!
Giving and receiving. Make an offering to start your practice so it's full of intention, love, devotion...bhakti! Lots of shoulder, hip and hamstring opening, love for your IT bands, pigeon pose, standing splits, upper back opening all in preparation for some fun poses like perch pose and eventually, fallen angel. The receiving comes from the doing and then the surrendering. Enjoy, yogis!
This practice is all about truth! A quick talk about Satya, and the idea of being truthful in word, speech and action while also practicing ahimsa (non-harming). Can you be true to yourself without causing harm to others? Of course you can, it just takes practice! Join Kate for a flow that deeply opens the hips, hamstrings and shoulders, and then play with Standing Splits at the wall (so fun!) and a deep pigeon variation. Sat Nam, yogis!
This playful practice will give you a chance to find your balance, strength and focus. It's all about trying new things and not taking any of it too seriously! We move through variations on Warrior 3, Standing Splits, Half Moon, Bird of Paradise and more! Mellow out in a juicy pigeon stretch and enjoy your Savasana!
In this super charged full body flow you will be challenged and motivated to try some new transitions and fun sequencing. I encourage you to breathe your way through the tough spots to help you move into the poses with ease and grace.
Deep hips and hamstrings, lots of shoulder opening, core strengthening, arm balancing and inverting. How far forward to you have to shift in order to lift? Are you willing to fall on your face (metaphorically), or is fear keeping you stuck? Grab a bolster or pillow, and work with your fear if so!
Nadi Shodhana pranayama starts the practice with a focus on awakening the Ajna, or 3rd Eye at the brow point. Many of the postures are held for longer periods of time with the eyes closed to cultivate a state of inward balance and centeredness. Once thoroughly aligned we'll take a moment experimenting with the balance in "Toppling Tree Pose" - a variation of Standing Splits. Juicy hip and shoulder opening prep us properly for Pincha Mayurasana variations, including one with a hollow-back & eagle legs, or a straight up Scorpion pose. Conclude the practice with a meditation on the winged eye, the symbol of the Ajna Chakra to help you see the unseen.
