Keep your pelvis level by drawing your navel actively toward your spine. Feed your back leg like crazy. Think about lines of energy. One straight line from the crown of your head through the back foot of the extended leg. Another from your bottom wrist to your top. A block is useful to "lift the floor up" in many cases.

Here are some classes featuring Twisting Half Moon.
Hello friends! In this flow we're going to work toward twisting half moon in all kinds of creative and meaningful ways. Count on lots of twists, IT band opening, and love for your outer-hips along the way. You'll also find some fiery ab work in forearm plank and other juicy surprises. Grab two blocks and let's start the party!
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!
In this flow, you'll send some love to your full body. A sweet warrior sequence gives us time to tap into breath, balance and movement. We strengthen the core and wind it down with some hip love before closing out with a meditation to ground you in embracing the fullness of life. If you're hungry for a quick yoga flow, this offering from Dhaujée will leave you nice and full!
Hello, yogis! Today we have a fun, middle-of-the-road kinda flow that is not too crazy-hard and not easy, either! Just a sweet, solid, full-body flow with options for arm balances and inversions, but only if you want them! Enjoy this ride :)
This is a great practice for days when you have some good energy to work with and want to deeply open your shoulders and hamstrings, wring yourself out with some nice twists, strengthen your core and play with some fun arm balances and inversions! Eagle pose was our friend all the way through and we played with it right side up, on our heads and on our hands. Try to practice non-attachment, make it all about breathing deeply, pick the variations that make sense for you, and enjoy!
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!
Short on time and looking for a well-rounded flow to build some nice heat and strengthen and open...everything?! Look no further! This is a hip, shoulder and hamstring-opening practice where we also strengthen the core and you have plenty of options to play with handstands (or not!). You can turn the heat up or down, but I guarantee you'll feel amazing if you keep breathing and stay focused! Ready, set, flow!
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!
This is a twisty, energizing flow where we wring ourselves out, get centered and fly! A block may be helpful. Expect core strengthening, arm balancing, hip, shoulder and hamstring-opening and lots of twists on our feet and on the floor. You may end up in grasshopper pose or you may explore a variation on the way there, just stay open and curious!
This is a strength-building flow where we use blocks to remove blocks! It's going to be so much fun! Grab two blocks and get ready for a shoulder, hip and hamstring-opening, core strengthening, inversions-full ride where you'll get to hone your focus with balance in all kinds of ways!
