You are a powerful creator of your own experience. What do you want to create with this practice? This is a mobility flow -no direct core work, no inversions, we're focused on mobility! This means we'll be building heat and doing LOTS of hip, hamstring and shoulder-opening, while giving lots of love to your spine. Please don't force a thing, work with your body to create space, there's no rush. Enjoy yogis! You might want to have a couple of blocks and a blanket handy.

We open with reclined bound angle pose, followed by twists and more hip and hamstring stretches. Once on our feet, we practice sun salutes and standing poses. We play around with one-legged chair and if inspired an arm balance, galavasana. This class is good for intermediate to advanced practitioners. Enjoy!

This practice is all about breathing through intense sensation. This is the way we practice for breathing through intense emotion, including grief, loss, longing, the fear that can arise around change, and all the other "big" feelings we go through as human beings. The pace is mindful and steady and you can expect long holds in some poses so we can practice breathing and staying open even as we're experiencing some of those big feelings! Lots of hip-opening once we're warm - standing frog variations lead to frog on the mat, along with options for intermediate to very advanced hip openers (please listen to your knees and do not do anything that hurts!) This class was in response to a request - please know I LOVE requests! Enjoy, yogis, and keep breathing.

We get right to it in this practice that targets creative and deep shoulder, hip and hamstring opening and offers many chances to wring yourself out with twists! Arm variations and binds in poses you might not expect, tripod headstand to koundinyasana 1 (a couple of blocks make this safe and fun) and deep breathing throughout. You'll feel energized, open and ready for anything, yogis!

Did someone say legs? Also see: feet, ankles, calves, hamstrings, quadriceps, hips, glutes and core strength! If you want to focus on grounding, opening, strengthening and feeling like you can really stand on your own two feet and trust in your resilience, this is for you! We give a lot of love to the toes, feet and ankles before we head up the legs toward the glutes and core. Deep, conscious breathing is the name of this game. You're going to feel your legs and butt for days, in all the good ways! Enjoy, yogis!

This class is focused on the posterior hips - the glutes and the hamstrings. We will stretch and strengthen these areas and learn how these muscles can affect the health of our knees and ankles. This is a Foundational Flow class which means we will move at a slower pace but it's expected that you are familiar with the poses and the breath and have been practicing regularly for some time!

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!

If you're short on time but want to breathe deeply, get present, build a fire in your belly and open your hips and hamstrings deeply, look no further! We pack a lot into this short practice and you may even find yourself on the way to kurmasana (tortoise pose) by the end! Please don't force a thing, though, just move, breathe and be good to you!

This quick, creative flow will open your shoulders, upper back, hamstrings and hips, give you plenty of cool ways to strengthen your core, offer you chances to get upside down and leave you feeling AWESOME and ready for anything!

We open with a wide-legged forward bend, side lunges, and stretching. We follow with some strength for arms and core. We begin to flow with sun salutations, standing poses, and balance. We finish with backbends, inversions and savasana. Enjoy!
