If you're looking for a shorter practice that packs a punch, here you go! The hips get a lot of love in this flow, but so do the shoulders and hamstrings! You'll have options to add handstands and headstands along the way, but even if you don't invert, you will breathe deeply, get your heart pumping and walk away from your mat feeling open and energized!

So much hip-opening worked into this juicy flow that builds heat and gives you options for compass pose and eight angle pose, handstand hops and other fun variations. We're all being pulled in so many different directions, and this practice (and eight-angle pose) weaves in the idea of keeping your center strong as you handle everything with more grace, ease and breath!

A fun, dynamic flow sequence to energize your body and mind! Challenge yourself to stay present moment by moment, breath by breath. You can expect a gentle warm up, sun salutations, a new crescent flow, exalted Tadasana, twisted chair, happy cow and a relaxing savasana. Enjoy, yogis!

This is an advanced class with intermediate options offered every step of the way. The most important thing to prioritize is deep and steady breath - that is the key to calming your nervous system and quieting your mind! You will deeply open your shoulders, chest and upper back, your hips, hamstrings and heart. You will fire up your core and play on your hands and upside down. Please listen to your body, choose the options that make sense today, and care for your tender heart. It's not easy right now, and taking care of yourself is key. Love to all xx

Energize the mind and body as you start your day with Dhaujee. If you're short on time but want to get an invigorating flow in, this offering is perfect for you! Repeat the sequence if you have more time or use as a warm up for your favorite yoga sculpt class. Have fun energizing!

Medium heat/deep hips. Perfect for days when you really need to get centered, breathe deeply, build some nice heat, and open it all up! Nothing too crazy, just the right amount to release and remember who you are! If you're feeling anxious or you're dealing with racing thoughts or having a day with too much sitting, emailing and/or adulting, this is for you!

We start this practice reclining on our mats with a series of twists. There is an emphasis on inward hip rotation to de-compress the sacrum, and some core work. On our feet, we weave balance and standing poses in sun salutations. We end with backbends and an inversion. Enjoy!

Looking to explore forearm stand? Look no further! Grab two blocks and join Angela for a very smart sequence that will get you prepped for forearm plank, dolphin pose, forearm stand and maybe even forearm stand with stag legs! Core strength on point and all kinds of fun along the way.

This is an advanced class but there are building blocks for every single advanced pose, so intermediate yogis are welcome! Get ready to breathe deeply and open your hips and hamstrings along with your shoulders and upper back, strengthen your core and get ready for hippie arm balances including koundinyasana 2 and grasshopper pose! Handstands with wide straddle variations are also in our mix today. And we end with Yoga Nidra in Savasana, so bliss awaits you! Take a little extra time for a deep savasana and see how great you feel after all that work!
