This powerful practice will get you moving, flowing and sweating! We start off with fluid sun salutations, create strength through challenging standing postures and play with arm balances & inversions throughout the flow. A series of backbends open the heart and strengthen the back. Pigeon, wide leg stretch, and forward folds lengthen everything out. Enjoy!
Sutra 2:33 - Vitarka Bhadhane Pratipaksa Bhavanam
"When disturbed by negative thoughts, opposite (positive) ones should be thought of."
Cultivate the power to turn things around and choose light over darkness. This sequence centers around a study in asymmetry, and the ability to stabilize in uneven or unbalanced positions. Some of the maha moments include tree in half lotus, an asymmetrical variation of Dwi Pada Koundinyasana and Vishvamitrasana. Flip your script yogis, namaste!
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!
30 Mellow-ish Minutes to an Open Heart
Great for days when you have a moderate amount of energy (it didn't end up being as mellow as I promised in the intro, but still not an a$$-whooper). Major shoulder, upper back and heart opening, complemented by hamstring and back body opening. Lots of cat/cow variations get us nice and loose and create a free flow of energy. You decide if you want to do restorative or active backbends (I did restorative and two blocks are helpful in that case). A very yummy flow that will leave you feeling great in a short amount of time!
Dive deep into your hips in this strong flow practice! Get ready to sweat, flow, move and stretch. Lots of challenging poses are explored like crow, tripod, kukkutasana, handstand and side plank variations! Double pigeon tops off our hip release and prepares you for a relaxing savasana. Enjoy!
Short on time but want a thorough flow, deep stretch, core work, backbends, hip and hamstring openers, and a chance to connect with your breath? Yes, please! Series C, skandasana, standing marychyasana, hanumanasana, pigeon variations, upward facing wheel, and, wait for it…Savasana!
Series C leads the way and we ride it into some deep hip and hamstring opening, balancing poses, deep core work, and eventually dragonfly pose. We turn things upside down and work on keeping our hearts and minds open in the midst of a world that can be hard to comprehend sometimes.
Got the weight of the world on your shoulders? This flow will help you open up the chest, shoulders and upper back. Sun salutations, standing poses, and deep shoulder openers are explored in this practice. Lots of breath and movement to help with clearing out and relieving stress! Enjoy yogis!
You know I love a little Kundalini warm-up ; ) Dancing between deep rootedness and lightness, this Lotus Flow practice has an expansive range. Ground down, let it fly, get deep into the hips and take those shapes with you into standing balance poses and arm-balances. Urdvha Dhanurasana for dessert anyone?
In this class we will explore backbends that involve the grip flip. This move can seem challenging if not explained step by step, but is totally doable when broken down into little pieces if you're ready! We warm up with puppy stretch, cat/cow, Surya c, plank, and then move on to bow, pigeon, king pigeon, king bow, dancer, king dancer and much, much more! Enjoy!
