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.
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!
If you're looking for a deep dive into your hips, shoulders and hamstrings, some fiery core strengthening, twisting, arm balancing and inverting...look no further, this practice has it all. Grounding breath on the front end, yoga Nidra to send you blissfully into savasana on the back end. In between, we explore the inner landscape, weed out what isn't serving us and nurture the blossoms we want to grow! A block and strap may be handy here. Intermediate students welcome as I give options and building blocks, but please listen to your body and tend to your garden with love <3
Our bodies show up for us in SO many ways, physically and emotionally. Often times, we tuck those unprocessed energies away in our muscles and joints. Twisting the body is an excellent way to detoxify your internal organs along with your muscles and joints while freeing yourself up energetically. Join Dhaujee for a quick detoxifying and energizing flow where you'll twist it out!
A balance-centered flow that connects you to your core from moment one! We start with breath-work and move into core work, and then we're off! A fun, challenging practice with lots of opportunities to play with your balance or play with your lack of balance! Everyone wins. Twists to wring yourself out, lots of shoulder and hamstring opening, and as always, deep conscious breathing. Enjoy, yogis!
A Shiva/third chakra-geared sequence designed to help us harness the power of transformation balancing Shiva and Shakti energies (masculine and feminine), so we can both embrace change as it happens, and also find the strength to change the things we want to shift! Whether you need to change your approach or the way you might habitually respond to situations in ways that aren't serving you, become your own alchemist in this practice! Think twists to wring yourself out, and backbends to open your heart to whatever may within you or around you! Fun shiva shapes, navasana for rocky waters, and a sense of humor along the way!
If you're looking for a deep hip-and-shoulder release mixed into your well-rounded flow, look no further! If you've been sitting too much, we target all the areas that long to move! The shoulders, chest, upper back and neck, hip flexors and psoas, the quads and hamstrings, and of course, the all-important spine! You will find that you release energy you didn't know you had and find fluidity in your breath and in your body. A block might be handy, but isn't necessary. Enjoy, yogis!
This practice is all about releasing stress, opening the body and clearing the mind! A well-rounded flow that includes deep shoulder work, arm balances, and grounding standing poses. You will come out of Savasana feeling better overall! Enjoy!
