Crack open your heart chakra to uncover the truth in your flow. In this class we work through a strong vinyasa sequence with an open heart so you can really see where you are in your practice today. By tuning into the body and mind, your practice will reveal the areas in your life that need to be focused on so we can ultimately find contentment; even if just for a moment. That moment is just the beginning!
A deep-dive for the neck, upper back, side body, IT band (omg), core strength, outer hips and shoulders as we head toward visvamitrasana and fallen angel. If you're going to fall from the sky, better open your IT bands on the way down ;)
A sweaty and challenging flow with lots of twists and turns along the way, love for your hamstrings, hips and shoulders, heat-building and core-strengthening, a little tutorial for those of you working on your side crow, and some tips for heading toward kapotasana if you're ready! A conversation about Garuda and why it never goes well if you shrink yourself to make other people feel comfortable, and lots of laughter also included. Intermediate practitioners welcome, lots of options to turn the heat up or down as needed, just please listen to your body!
A story about the relationship between the sage Vashista and the King Visvamitra and the arm balances named after each of them! What draws you to your practice? Is it greater flexibility, core strength, these funky poses? Or are you after something deeper, like enlightenment? Lots of fun along the way as we prep for these arm balances and consider what it is that motivates us to show up on our mats every day! Whatever it is that draws you in the first place, there's no doubt the path is full of hard work and glorious surprises. Maybe you'll even end up with a wish-fulfilling cow! (Let us know if that happens for you!)
Well, we didn't stop moving very much at all, but we had a lot of fun filming this class for you! Want to really feel your outer hips? How about those adductors? We get it all with lots of fun along the way, so get ready to work and sweat, but also get ready to laugh! You might find yourself in flying pigeon, or dragonfly. You may end up in a handstand. You might say to yourself, how did I get here? This is how we do it, one practice at a time!
Build core strength for better balance in standing poses and learn how to cultivate a sense of lightness in arm balances and inversions! This class will help you keep your practice well-rounded, safe and so very strong!!
Lots of forward folds in our flow so we can work with the idea of a solid foundation and strong center. If you can't trust yourself, how can you have faith that you'll be able to rise to the occasion when life asks, or release situations and people when the nudges are there to move in a different direction? Open your hips, shoulders and hamstrings. Play with balance and strength. Fire up your core. Get upside down if you're ready. Surrender to a deep savasana. Trust yourself, and release your grip where you can.
Lots of fun twists and turns in this one, folks! A little twisted boat pose, variations with Archer's pose, side body deep release, twisty arm balances, headstand action and so much more. Get ready to flow, play and swerve!
Don't let the name fool you ...it's only sweet because we get it all done in 39 minutes! If you don't have a lot of time but want to hit all the major muscle groups, get in some upside-down time and core work, then look no further as this class gets the job done and it's so much FUN! Energize and recharge now :)
Lead us from the unreal to the real, from the darkness to the light, from the fear of death to the knowledge of immortality - bring us to that knowledge of oneness. We start with the asatoma sadgamaya prayer and move into a deep and fluid flow that opens the shoulders, upper back, chest, hips and hamstrings so we can play with funky eight-angle pose and one-legged-crow-meets-shayanasana :) Peace, yogis!
