Breath of Fire starts this party and then we flow and twist and open the hips, hamstrings and shoulders heading toward compass pose, visvamitrasana and a little flying pigeon. Guaranteed by the end of this class you will feel lighter and brighter and ready for whatever life sends your way. Namasté, yogis!
Open your hips, shoulders and hamstrings, play with arm balances like koundinyasana 2 and flying pigeon, fire up your core, and take things upside down. Learn to stay focused in a strange world. This class offered many opportunities to do just that, as you will see :)
Deep hips and hamstrings, lots of shoulder opening, core strengthening, arm balancing and inverting. How far forward to you have to shift in order to lift? Are you willing to fall on your face (metaphorically), or is fear keeping you stuck? Grab a bolster or pillow, and work with your fear if so!
Quality movement and lower repetition is the goal here as we explore movement in a variety of planes, including strong core and Pilates workouts. Forgetting my new iPhone dongle, we'll let the music be our breath (or put on your own!).
In this second short kettlebell flow, we work toward Turkish get-ups with a few rounds of squats, lateral lunges, cleans, and presses. This class can be taken with a light weight or even a yoga block in lieu of a kettlebell.
Setting the tone with the balancing Hakini mudra we play with balance and strength throughout class. The Hakini mudra connects the right and left hemisphere of the brain really centering the body from top down. I hope you enjoy this playful balance inspired flow!
In this mix it up flow we will wake up your entire body as we move in a sweet steady pace that will make you feel just right after your practice! This is a sweaty, challenging flow with arm balances and inversions and opportunities to play. As always, listen to your body and play in a way that feels right for you!
Finding the sweet spot between opening your upper back and shoulders and keeping your core engaged is the goal of this flow. Plenty of full-body love expressed along the way. There are even some plyometrics for added fun.
