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!
Overcome perfectionism in this challenging but fun flow focused on hip & shoulder opening, arm balancing, core strengthening, & inverting. The theme emerged as I had to excuse myself to run to the ladies room, & as I screwed up the sequence. Years ago, I would have kicked myself. Today, we laugh together, & all works out in the end. If you have a loud inner critic, ignore it! Feed a loving voice.
Get out of your comfort zone with this challenging & fun practice! We move through playful sun salutations with handstand options, strong balancing postures, challenging transitions, and arm balances including crow, baby crow, & side crow. We build up to the arm balance Visvamitrasana (Visvamitra's pose). Long hold hip opening & forward folds close out the practice. Play, move & enjoy!
Okay, yogis, let's get in there! Series C starts the party and we open the front and back body, checking in with the psoas, hips, quads, back, chest, shoulders and hamstrings. We build some heat, twist and balance with standing splits and eagle pose, lots of crescent, warrior 3 and fun variations with all, and then hit the floor for navasana sit ups. We play with dolphin pose, all the building blocks for forearm balance, and the full pose if you're ready! Savasana feels good!
Self care is our theme as we push some physical limits through a challenging flow intended to build heat in the body to open our hearts and ultimately prepare us for meditation (Savasana). Breathe deep yogis!
Shoulders, upper back and hips are the focus, though we give the hamstrings some love, too! A sweaty, targeted flow that includes balancing and an arm balance mash-up. Backbends, blanket abs and inversions before we get into the hips and hamstrings a little more. Savasana is delightful.
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.
