Upper back strengthening and balance galore in this dynamic springtime flow. Unfortunately for the last three minutes, Derek clicked his microphone off, so only the music will guide you—it's the chill out section, so not much is lost. It's also a wonderful boost for Derek's sense of humility.
Recovering from this year's flu, this flow is a dynamic, feel-good series of movements perfect for getting loose and waking up. It features a range of strength building and balancing postures with the goal of loosening up and feeling refreshed.
If you need a quick sweat and want to up your inversion game this is the class for you! It is quick, to the point and enormously effective! We start out with a warmup for our hamstrings, shoulders and wrists and then go over the drills we will be doing. These are what’s on the menu for today’s class, enjoy!
Crescent to Pistol
Navasana to Standing
Enjoy a whole body flow that includes pranayama (breath exercises), cat cow variations, twisting lunges, sun salutations including twists and hip openers, goddess pose, creative flows with thigh stretches, triangle, half moon variation, double pigeon, and a brief meditation at the end.
Our feet shape the entirety of our standing practice. We begin by loosening up our feet, followed by all the joints in our lower chain. After a flow we work in a wide stance to promote maximum engagement of that chain, from our feet to our hip joints. We finish with a brief meditation.

Being that Derek talks about loading often in his yoga classes, here is a chance for something a bit different: a 24-minute kettlebell flow pulled from his group classes in Los Angeles. In the video he's using a 16-kg bell, though you can substitute a dumbbell for all of these movements.
