"Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwara" this mantra honors the lessons/teachings of the beginning or creation, the middle or preservation, and the ending or destruction of all things in life. This practice begins with a mellow, reclining hip-opening sequence, is sustained by flowing standing sequences, and wraps up with a gnarly expressions of Yoga Dandasana, the staff of the guru!
Lift your heart toward heaven. A deep heart-opening flow that will open your shoulders, upper back and chest and leave you feeling both open and in touch with your own beautiful resilience. Kapotasana variations on your way to a possible kapotasana once we're warm!
Open your upper back, shoulders, muscles across your chest, and space at the front and back of your heart in this flow that opens the front body and the back body (hi there, hamstrings), fires up your core strength, and kicks it upside down. Think eagle pose, standing splits, Eka Pada K 1, dwi pada, lots of twists, and handstands for fun. Cupid has nothing on you ;)
Get grounded and work your way up to a feeling of oneness. Once your wheels are spinning, you can expect lots of heart-opening as we head toward forearm stand, charging scorpion, and viparita dandasana variations. Energizing and heart-opening, just what we need right about now. Enjoy, yogis!
Giving and receiving. Make an offering to start your practice so it's full of intention, love, devotion...bhakti! Lots of shoulder, hip and hamstring opening, love for your IT bands, pigeon pose, standing splits, upper back opening all in preparation for some fun poses like perch pose and eventually, fallen angel. The receiving comes from the doing and then the surrendering. Enjoy, yogis!
Oh yessss! In this class we will explore many different variations of the bird asanas, like crow, crane, bird of paradise, easy bird, eagle, tripod or handstand with eagle legs, pigeon and many more. This class will warm you up and prep you for each pose so that you get the maximum benefits. You will work hard, you will sweat and you will feel amazing when you finish!!
An energizing flow that's all about stoking and acknowledging your own light so you can share it freely with the world! You're going to feel your quads in this one, folks, and get ready for some Kundalini frogs to really get those flames going! Crow pose, bhujapidasana and tittibhasana all make appearances, along with lots of archer pose variations and some omg's! Enjoy, yogis and shine bright!
Pull your focus back to what is real and what is important. Too many of us spend too much time worrying about how we look, or how life looks, instead of celebrating who we are, and what we have to offer. Open your hips, hamstrings and shoulders, strengthen your core, play on your hands and upside down, and feel yourself surrender in Savasana.
All kinds of Archer's Pose and Gate pose variations, lots of shoulder, upper back and side-body opening, love for your quadriceps, hips and hamstrings, cow face pose and a fun flow where you can play with flying pigeon and funky forearm stand variations. Enjoy, yogis!
A challenging, energizing flow with lots of heat-building and standing balance to hone your focus and get your core fired up, along with hamstring, hip and shoulder-opening, twists to wring you out, love for your upper back, and then tons of fun with eagle pose, right-side-up and upside down (tripod headstand and handstand variations)! Let's find some freedom inside and fly!
