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!
This flow focuses on building towards Pincha scorpion. We will do some sun Salutes with low lunging to prepare the hips, open the shoulders and chest with some backbends, tone the abs and play with inverting. What you can expect: Cat pose, plank, knees-chest-chin, cobra, Surya C, flip dog, standing backbends, low lunge with a twist, half hanuman, crescent pose w/gomukashana arms, parsvottanasana, lizard lunge, forearm plank, dolphin, Pincha, bow pose and much more!
Find the balance between breath and movement and effort and surrender in this powerful practice. This fly strong flow class explores challenging transitions, arm balances, twits, shoulder openers and more. Breathe into the moments of challenge and reset the mind in moments of rest. Sun Salutations create deep heat in the body, and the standing posture transitions build strength and mental focus. Crow, side crow & koundinyasana 2 are some of the arm balances explored. We finish with hip openers and a relaxing savasana. Enjoy Yogis!
We flow through a crescent warrior series adding on rainbow warrior to open the hamstrings. Then we work on shoulder opening with cactus arms in crescent then strengthen the core and shoulders for dolphin pose with option for forearm stand or pincha mayurasana.
Sweet Series C opens the front and back body, and helps us build enough heat to deeply open the shoulders, hips and hamstrings. The pace is slow but steady--this is not a "stretch and relax", we will work, but it's also not a butt whooper. It's a Goldilocks practice, "just right"! Pigeon variations and hamstring love included! Expect to open every major muscle group, connect with your breath, and enjoy your Savasana!
Go deep into the hips and shoulders and work your core as we flow and fly through a sweaty practice. A little conversation about how to love the people who are sometimes hard to love, while still taking care of ourselves!
We warm up with a version of down dog single pigeon and OMG squats then we flow through side angle and triangle to open up the side body, quads and hammies. Through our flow we work on bird of paradise, side plank, warrior 3 and revolved half moon strengthening the entire body as we move through shapes working with the breath. Modifications are offered for each pose to make sure all levels of yogis can participate. You can make this class as challenging as you want it to be by pushing yourself to your own edge, whatever that may be today. Let's have fun and get stronger together!! Namaste!
Cultivate deep stillness within and physical strength in this Fly Strong class. Use the breath to uncover a meditative space within while flowing through postures to create an awareness of the physical body. We practice crescent and warrior poses as well as eagle pose, crow, baby crow, handstand and more. We spend some time opening the hips, hamstrings and quadriceps and move into a deep, relaxing savasana! Enjoy Yogis!
Tapas is that fire that makes us show up for the people and causes that are important to us. You can't count on anything to happen exactly the way you expect or want, but practice is what creates the foundation for us to withstand and move forward with strength and grace. Balance the shiva and the shakti...you need the creative spark but also the follow-through.
