Feeling tension in your upper back, shoulders, chest, neck, jaw and forehead? Oh my gosh, this is for you! Build some heat with me, and let's get in there, release whatever you might be holding, and free up space and energy so you can get back to the business of being awesome!
At some point during this wild funky flow you are going to WOW yourself! You will be encouraged to take yourself to the next level of your practice as you explore new variations of poses and exciting ways to enter into them. I promise you will feel uber energized when you complete this class.
An opportunity to move the body with a focus on HIPS. OPEN hips doesn't mean HEALTHY hips. A body prone to stiffness justifies an emphasis on flexibility and a body prone to flexibility requires an emphasis on stabilizing. THIS class is Well rounded: Flow with Sun Salutations, Standing Poses, Core, Arm balance, Backbends and a delicious cool down of stretching. My instructions teach you how to KNOW your BODY so that you can try ANY POSE you want SAFELY.
My style is challenging however you will ALWAYS have the choice to do LESS. I will also throw in some chunks of Philosophy and remind you to BREATHE and most likely laugh at myself. I invite you to laugh and at the end of the day not take any of this too seriously unless of course you're in the mood for a good cry...
Enjoy a gentle warm up, Series A, Series B, standing balance, spinal twists, core strengthening and dancer’s bridge followed by bridge and wheel pose. The cool-down includes happy baby pose, thread the needle, reclined twists and Savasana.
Rather than being overly focused with what the posture looks like from the outside, focus on how each posture feels from the inside. Make friends with whatever you discover!
