Move slow, get strong! This practice focuses on opening the hamstrings and building strength with deep conscious movement. We get the blood flowing with a few sun salutations and create strength through standing poses. A deep hamstring stretch (hanumanasna) is our peak pose. Finish up with a peaceful and relaxing savasana!
This is a challenging one hour vinyasa flow class with an emphasis on strengthening self-acceptance and releasing perfectionism. We do want to refine our position in each asana so that prana moves through us clearly and with ease, and at the same time, we want to release the ideal of "perfection" and being at war with ourselves, both on and off the mat. Expect a gentle warm up, sun salutations, a warrior flow, balancing postures, inversions, as well as heart and hip opening. Offer love to yourself and enjoy!
Short on time? One of those days where you’re spinning or spiraling mentally? Hit the pause button, grab your mat, and let’s get breathing and moving for a few minutes. Just enough to get you out of your head and into your body, to breathe deeply, to open up physically, and to head back into your day (or night), with more clarity, ease and connection. Thanks, yoga!
Get into the hips and side waist with this fiery class. A Warrior II/Side Angle Flow builds heat, before we take it into some balancing poses with Ardha Chandrasana and Bakasana. We finish up with bridge (and maybe an Upward Facing Bow) and take some time to go upside down before we let it all go with a good long hold in a hip opener.
There are many applications of the Feldenkrais Method, all of which are designed to increase awareness and self-perception through movement. In this video we never leave the ground, doing a series of Feldenkrais-inspired movements, from subtle manipulations of joints to larger articulations rolling from side to side. A wonderful morning warm-up and evening cool-down alike.
Work Hard & Relax Hard! This combo flow and stretch practice will leave you blissed out and feeling amazing! Get ready to move and sweat in the first portion of the practice. Sun Salutations, standing poses and a couple of arm balances allow for a lot of internal heat. Then stretch everything out with long holds in pigeon, hanuman, frog, and bound angle. You'll come out of savasana feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and centered!
This well rounded, one hour flow class focuses primarily on the breath. Connect with the breath as a tool for countering stress, relaxing tension in the body, quieting emotions, calming the mind, and cultivating more energy. Moment by moment, posture by posture, come back to the breath as an achor for your movement meditation. Expect a gentle warm up, dynamic standing poses, core work, arm balancing, inversions, heart and hip opening, and a gentle cool down. Enjoy, yogis!
Wind it up and sweat it out with a Side Angle/Warrior II Flow that will take you into the hips and side body and get your heart rate up while you do it. An early Lizard pose preps your hips to let go, and a late, deep and long Pigeon should get the rest of it (whatever it is ;)) out. Side Plank and plenty of vinyasas for your shoulders, and of course, some heart opening and a sweet Savasana.
Just standing poses! Whether you're taking this session as part of the whole series, or doing it as a stand-alone, take this time to connect to your breath, and get comfortable standing on your own two feet. Sometimes when we spend much of our time caring for our little people, we forget that we have an identity of our own! Come to center and remember who you are, that way you're showing them what it looks like to be inspired and in touch with the truest part of yourself!
