Hi Yogis! Please enjoy this intermediate flow meant to bring “relief and ease” to your body, mind & heart! You can expect a gentle warm up with cat/cow + down dog, a few sun salutations, some challenging standing poses and then a cool down, including heart and hip opening. A little bit of everything ~ perfect for any time of day! xo Josie

If you're looking for a practice to get grounded and open your body deeply, this is it. Even if you practice daily, there are going to be times when you feel tight, or have less energy or have to coax yourself to get on your mat. This is my go-to kind of practice for days like that when I really want to open my hips, shoulders and hamstrings, get my breath going and also free up my energy! It's a great kind of practice when you're dealing with anxiety and need to move to burn it off, but maybe don't have your maximum energy level available. We sweat, move and breathe our way into an open body and a quiet mind. And you may see some arms popping into frame here and there because this is the Wild Card Monday class which I teach over zoom and in person while I film for y'all! I think these classes have a little extra community vibe which is kind of magical. So welcome to the Practice Garden, so glad you're here!

No inversions, no core, no chaturangas! Just a full body flow with lots of stretchy goodness for you!

This is a great practice for opening the hips, hamstrings and shoulders and firing up the core. We are working toward a possible eight angle pose as our peak, but whether you get there today or not, the point is never the destination, but rather the way we're opening to the journey! You will certainly walk away with a strong core, open shoulders and hips and your sense of humor intact! I film these classes on Mondays at noon PST and I zoom them at the same time, so you are welcome to join me and other members of our fabulous global community for some yoga in real time if you like! The link to join is always in the weekly newsletter :)

Take an hour to open your shoulders and hips, get connected to your breath, open your heart, quiet your mind, and turn your world on its head so you can come back with more presence, calm and clarity.

A great hip, shoulder and hamstring-opening flow where we breathe deeply and build heat with the intent to release tension. You will sweat and move, but this is a good class to do at the end of your day, when you're on your cycle, or when you really need to focus on grounding and opening. Restorative backbend options, lots of hip and hamstring opening and deep breathing will help to move through feelings of anxiety or depression and will be comforting on days when you might be feeling overwhelmed.

7 minutes of core and you are gonna feel the fire! You're welcome! :)

This is an energizing flow with lots of heat-building and attention to front and back-body opening. Twists, hamstring, shoulder and upper-back opening, psoas, quadriceps and hip flexors so you'll be ready for deeper backbends and core work before we get upside down!

Quick but powerful core, chest and shoulders class! All you need is 10 minutes and a good attitude, and you will be amazed at how fired up you will be. It might only take 10 minutes, but your core, chest and shoulders will be talking to you for days! Of course you will stretch it out at the end because Angela wouldn't leaving you hanging! Great when you're short on time but want something potent and meaningful.

Need something fast but potent? Angela to the rescue with 11 minutes of just enough heat-building to safely open the hips, hamstrings, quadriceps, shoulders, upper back, wrists and more. Don't believe you can accomplish all that in such a short time? Get back to me in 11 minutes!
