Give some extra love to your legs and thank them for taking you where you need to go every single day! In this flow we meticulously work on opening up the hamstrings, quads, IT band and calves while working on strength and balance. Enjoy this strong dynamic flow dedicated to your lower half.
Need your yoga fix but pressed for time? Try this short and sweet practice to get your blood pumping and your prana flowing. I promise you will not be disappointed that you took this time for YOU !! And yes we will get upside down to help shift your perspective because sometimes life is just better when we are inverted:)
Today’s class is all about building heat to open the side body. Since we don’t stretch our side body nearly enough this should feel pretty good! What to expect: Warrior 2, Side Angle Warrior with variations to work your side body, Skandasana to open your hips, One legged crow, malasana, Gate Pose, Baby Visvamitrasana, Crescent Pose, Exalted Crescent, Triangle with a special side body stretching variation and handstands sprinkled throughout of course! Enjoy!!!
If you're looking for fun, I've got you covered! An energetic flow that focuses on hip and hamstring opening and core strengthening so we can play with pretty insects like firefly and dragonfly and also handstand wide-straddles! Lots of heat-building and core strengthening, but don't worry, there's a nice amount of deep, stretchy cool-down, too.
Free your shoulders in this Strong Flow Practice. Perfect if you are carrying stress in the upper back, shoulders and neck! Plank and core work help to build heat along with sun salutations to get you out of your head and connected to the present moment. Deep shoulder opening is worked in throughout the practice. A relaxing resting pigeon pose calms the body and prepares you for a deep and restorative Savasana!
Take a conscious counter-pose to your daily life of hunching over smartphones, keyboards and steering wheels with an open-hearted stance with your shoulders on your back. A selection of special Kundalini Kriyas awakens the spine, bandhas and navel center are activated to support you in every move you make. Cultivate strength and stability through the legs and side-body in the flow of standing postures, winding down into the ground through the crown to rise up into headstand, possibly transitioning into an arm-balance variation.
Series C kicks us off and then we open things up and dive more deeply into the hips. Skandasana and eka pada koundinyasana, bird of paradise, bound ardha chandrasana and single pigeon help you release anything you might be sitting on. We take time to turn things upside down, open the hamstrings and the heart, and work the core deeply. The foundation of everything is mindful breath, and pranayama is emphasized throughout. We can’t change the environment around us all the time, but we can change the way we respond to it. Guided savasana should leave you super relaxed.
This is a strong flow that is suited for all levels of experienced yogis who are interested in pushing some limits while connecting to the breath and body. We will flow around the mat like a mandala changing perspective and getting out of the comfort zone of just facing forward. Of course we have a little of everything here with inversion prep and practice which is a key element I like to always incorporate into my classes. Enjoy yogis!
