In this flow allow your body and your breath to be your guide. Listen to the messages and wisdom you receive from within.
What to expect: a gentle warm-up, sun salutations, a Warrior 1/Skandasana flow, balancing poses, time for inversions, heart & hip opening, spinal twists, forwards folds and savasana. Enjoy yogis!
If you've ever painted a room in your home, you probably know about primers. Much like painting a wall, sometimes we need a little primer to get us ready for our deeper practice. Look no further... your practice primer is here! Great as a pre-cursor to a longer practice, or as a stand alone if you only have a few minutes to move and breathe... enjoy!
We start with alternate nostril breathing and then dive into the hips, shoulders and hamstrings. 6-minute abs happen early so you're connected to a strong center as you play with standing balance variations, like ardha chandrasana with a different focal point or no hands on the floor, and arm balances like flying pigeon. It's an intense practice with some long holds and time to feel your feelings and work your practice. Enjoy :)
If you're looking for a shorter practice that will deeply open the shoulders, hips, chest and upper back, and also fire up your core, look no further! We start off with some cat-cows and Series C, take it into serious core work and preliminary hip-opening, then get back on our feet for some dynamic flow with series B to build extra heat, and then find our way into several deep shoulder openers, front-body openers (virasana with lots of options) and back bends, and finally head into pigeon variations that you can choose from based on how you're feeling in your body, but including King Pigeon II if that feels right! Enjoy a deep practice with lots of time to breathe deeply, quiet your mind, and open your heart!
In this Pure Energy Flow you will be challenged to stay connected to your breath as we transition from pose to pose. We will also play with some fun arm balances and inversions to get your blood pumping!
Did I say Fiery? Just making sure you saw that! We work hard and play hard in this sweaty flow that keeps coming. Lots of core, hip, shoulder and hamstring opening, opportunities to play with arm balances like flying pigeon, handstand help, backbends and a nice rest when you're done! Please note, we filmed this class right before I replaced the sound system, so I do cut out in a few places, but took the class myself and it's pretty minimal and not at all hard to follow, so I'm publishing :) I hope you enjoy!
This practice is all about truth! A quick talk about Satya, and the idea of being truthful in word, speech and action while also practicing ahimsa (non-harming). Can you be true to yourself without causing harm to others? Of course you can, it just takes practice! Join Kate for a flow that deeply opens the hips, hamstrings and shoulders, and then play with Standing Splits at the wall (so fun!) and a deep pigeon variation. Sat Nam, yogis!
