Many variations are taught. The foundation is a strong center and a stable sacrum and pelvis. The full expression of the twist happens where updog and cobra happen. Emphasize the breath, and give your internal organs a nice squeeze. Detox, people!

Here are some classes featuring Twisting Crescent.
In this offering, we get into the benefits of binds. Binds may seem like an advanced yogi option, but there are so many ways to engage with binds, especially with the use of props. Dhaujee moves us through a familiar vinyasa practice that incorporates binds as a way to promote intentional opening in our postures. Grab your straps and get ready to go deeper in this practice!
Ready to play with some cosmic energy balls and get that shakti flowing? Then this is for you! Please grab two blocks and a blanket and get ready to find your through-line as we play. Lots of standing balance, tons of deep hamstring opening, twists, backbends in surprising places, pigeon variations and so much fun. Let's get witchy, yogis!
Side body sweetness coming up! Spend some time with Dhaujee stretching and moving, targeting side-body spaciousness, twists, core engagement, standing balance, and more...and walk away from your mat breathing freely and feeling 2 inches taller!
Want to go deep into some hip-opening in a short amount of time? Me, too! Get ready for an energizing, heat-building flow that targets the hips, hip flexors and quadriceps and gets us ready for lots of pigeon variations and our friend, the frog!
Welcome to the shoulder show, where we take time to show love to our shoulder joints through gentle twisting, strengthening and binding. Don't worry, the rest of the body is not neglected in this flow, instead, we focus on the poses that incorporate opening from the neck to the heart. Release tension we naturally build in the shoulders through our daily activities. Counter the tech neck and release some weight in your shoulders in this flow!
Grab two blocks (and a strap may be helpful) and get ready to take your hamstrings for a ride! Join Kate for this practice that begins with some core-centering to prepare you for lots of standing balance, creative twists and takes on familiar poses like twisting crescent, twisting half moon, and twisting padanghustasana. Pigeon pose feels great on the outer hips after all the fun. Enjoy this quick but deep practice, yogis!
Building on the foundation of All About the Binds, Part 1, this invigorating practice will lead you through a sequence of postures that involve not only binds, but twists as well. A great challenge for mind and body. Enjoy!
