In this well-rounded class we focus on open hip poses, and then finding our twisting poses and counter-twists to balance the body and mind. Of course we play with arm balances and inversions to challenge ourselves and change perspective... All you need to do is show up with an open mind and be ready for anything!
Don’t let the sweet, slow start fool you, because intense core work is just around the corner. We take that fire in the belly and head into Series C with variations, leading to skandasana, lizard pose, and koundinyasana 2. We play with crescent, eagle pose, twisted half moon, handstands and more twists to wring out any stagnant energy or ideas, and we open the heart with backbends. Inversions turn it upside down, and savasana is sweet, with a body-scan to take you deep. Enjoy the fluid movement, the heat building, the quiet mind, and the great energy of this class.
Explore your edge, balance, & focus in this fly strong flow. We work with challenging yet playful transitions and inversions & arm balances. Bird of Paradise, lizard pose, boat & crow pose are just a few of the many postures we explore in this practice. This flow will get you out of your comfort zone and into a place of strength and peace. Enjoy yogis!
It's so good to be back on Yogis Anonymous! This practice is about shedding skin, emerging transformed, new, bright and shiny. Lots of legwork, heart-opening, hip-opening and some curve-ball opportunities to invert or fly up into an arm-balance. Enjoy!
Get into your hips in this sweaty flow, strengthen your core and your upper body, twist out what isn't serving you, and play with hippie arm balances and inversions. Start where you are with the more challenging poses, grab a block if you need one, and be patient with yourself, and curious about your process!
A few rounds of Series A and C warm you up and set you up for a sweaty class that includes a couple different Humble Warrior variations, Lizard pose, Side Plank, Eagle, and some extra shoulder-opening with Dolphin, Dolphin Plank and a Dolphin side plank. There's also a chance to play with Eka Pada Koundinyasana I, and of course, some heart and hip opening on the floor to close it out before Savasana.
The heart chakra is associated with the element of air, thus this is a breath based practice that focuses on opening up the chest and lungs. We will move through a series of vinyasas to warm up the body and stretch the shoulders, making our way into FULL locust, a heart opening inversion that strengthens the back muscles. Anahata means unstruck, alluding to the belief that there is a place within you that is pure consciousness, awareness and love. Join in as we connect to this vital energy center and feel empowered to take on our day with open arms. Enjoy!
Get your body moving in this Fly Strong Flow! We twist, fire up the core, play on our hands and stretch. Sun salutations create heat, & we work with fallen triangle as a transitional pose. Dolphin plank creates abdominal strength and half chair pose helps to cultivate balance. A good dose of backbends opens the heart and strengthens the back. Deep hip opening and forward folds finish up the practice. Enjoy Yogis!
Lots of heat-building with Series A, C (with variations to open the hips and shoulders), and B, to continue the hip-focus. Arm balances and core work and inversions, oh my! A little fun with handstand jumps (if you don’t have a bolster, a firm couch pillow should do the trick!) Let’s play!
Rolling through the normal ups and downs of life with more ease, strength and grace is what we're after, yes? Practice the reality that you are not in control of most things (including this sequence, haha), but stay strong and centered anyway, as we open the hips, shoulders and hamstrings, fire up the core, get on our hands, and play upside down!
A strong flow with a chance to get deep while staying strong with some fiery standing hip openers that force you to engage as you surrender. We hit Warrior II, Side Angle, Ardha Chandrasana, Standing Frog pose (aka Goddess pose), some Lizard pose variations and Eka Pada Koundinyasana II on our way to the floor, where there's some core strengthening, backbending and inversion time waiting for us. We finish out the class with a chance to extinguish all that fiery hip energy with a good, long hold in Frog and a chance to forward fold with Baddha Konasana and a wide-legged forward fold. Savasana should be sweet.
