During this sequence we will start with a moon salute sequence to open up the chest and hip flexors before moving into strengthening hip openers. The peak is one of my favorite arm balances, baby Bakasana! If you're someone who travels quite a bit or finds yourself sitting for an extended period of time, then this practice might just be the medicine to medicate the soreness you feel in your lower back, shoulders and neck. Enjoy!
This fun and engaging vinyasa flow targets the core, shoulders and inner thighs to build strength and stability in the upper body, preparing you for handstand. We will flow through a series of sun salutations before working into standing hip openers, twists and inversions. Suitable for all levels! Come with an open mind and a willingness to play upside down.
This energizing flow prepares the body for Visvamitrasana - a pose dedicated to the Sage Visvamitra. This basis for this pose is side plank with one leg in a deep hip opener and spine into a twist! It's a rather complex pose but we will move through a series of asanas to warm you up and help you balance. A great practice for building strength in the upper body while opening up the shoulders. Enjoy!
Don't have time for a full class? No problem! Here you can get your ab fix in a hurry! What to expect:
One side twisted leg lifts
Pain when you laugh for the next three days!
The heart chakra is associated with the element of air, thus this is a breath based practice that focuses on opening up the chest and lungs. We will move through a series of vinyasas to warm up the body and stretch the shoulders, making our way into FULL locust, a heart opening inversion that strengthens the back muscles. Anahata means unstruck, alluding to the belief that there is a place within you that is pure consciousness, awareness and love. Join in as we connect to this vital energy center and feel empowered to take on our day with open arms. Enjoy!
This class was designed to help you detox and transition into a new season. Oftentimes, spring is associated with spring cleaning and it's not only a great time to clean out that closet but also a good time to clear away all the debris we have been carrying in our bodies through the winter months. You might feel congested and tired during this shift so we will focus on opening up the upper back, hips and shoulders, preparing you for a beautiful standing balance, Bird of Paradise and inversion, Pincha Mayurasana. Enjoy!
Hanumanasana is a beautiful pose to stretch and open our hamstrings. It also asks us to slow down and prepare our bodies in a way to receive this intense pose. The sequence is designed to educate and open your body, mind, and energy to create a healthy shape that feels supportive and spacious. With one leg in the past and one leg in the future, it's a lovely reminder to keep your head and heart in the present and listen to the intuition and intelligence of your body!
This practice will open up your shoulders and hips while strengthening the core and chest so you feel well prepared to take on Grasshopper Pose, an arm balance that includes a deep hip opener and twist. When we feel open and connected to our hearts, we feel a lightness in the body that allows us to fly free. Enjoy!
The title says it all for this one. If you're looking to stretch, strengthen and generally develop a better understanding of how to use your abdominals to help you get into more advanced poses, this class is for you! Whether you can see it from the outside or not, everyone has a six pack, and this class is here to put it to work! (Note: The first 10 minutes of this class deal with nauli kriya, which is a very challenging thing for most people to do. It requires a lot of patience... so be patient!)
A great flow to practice toward the end of the day to de-stress and unwind. We will energize the body and move through a series of standing poses before dropping into twists and heart openers. This is a balanced practice that includes lots of yummy stretches so you feel rested and restored from a long day. Enjoy!
