A classic balancing pose, tree pose teaches us to root down and rise up. The standing leg is like the trunk of your tree, the roots grow down into the earth, your trunk and limbs reach for the sun. Start with the variation that makes sense for you, and breathe!
Make sure you have a medium-sized pillow ready for tonight’s practice! This flow is meant to imbue your evenings with connection, togetherness and maybe even a regular end-of-day family de-stress routine. We will use pillows throughout our class in fun and imaginative ways. You can expect a wide variety of poses such as cat-cow, tree pose, warrior 2 and airplane, some giggles, and a nice savasana that may even send you off into dreamland.
A playful sequence for little ones that connects them to their breath. In yoga we call our breath “Pranayama." For this class we are going to use pom poms or cotton balls to help us explore our breath and play with some fun yoga poses! You can expect some nice hip and shoulder opening and fun standing balance along the way! Enjoy!
Tree is the standing balance pose that "unlocks" all other balance. In this flow we fire up our core, plank all over, laugh, cry, and end up with a greater sense of balance than we ever thought possible (or close).
A well rounded slow flow with emphasis on practicing healthfully and mindfully so the asanas are sustainable. In the yoga sutras we are taught to bring sthira and sukha or "effort and ease" into every posture. Let's practice!
This is a steady, strong flow class. We go through sun salutations and standing poses including a flowy, graceful string of poses that stretch the IT band and hip flexors. Forward bends, backbends, twists and balance poses. All in 46 minutes. Enjoy.
