“Vinyasa” means “a methodical progression from one point to another”, and when we say “vinyasa flow” we are describing the union of breath and movement from one pose to another. Our flow classes are sweaty, focused and fun. The emphasis on breath brings you into your body and connects you to something that’s happening in the present moment--your inhales and exhales, and all the other sensations that arise as you move and build heat, open, strengthen and stretch. Sensations don’t happen in the past or the future, they happen now. Welcome to your body!
Let's have a morning cup of joe-ga together! Sun salutes heat us up, a standing sequence opens all the major muscle groups, backbends open the heart and the shoulders, hip and hamstring-opening sets us up to enter the day feeling relaxed and ready, core strengthening starts a fire in the belly, and all along the way gentle reminders to work on an inner voice that roots you on while you gain tools to tell a loud inner critic to hit the road! Ready? Grab your cup. I mean your mat!
This practice is all about building heat and opening the hips! Flow through sun salutations and standing poses. Hip opening poses are integrated throughout the practice. Arm balances and inversions add an element of play! You'll come out of savasana feeling refreshed and relaxed. Enjoy!
Short on time but long on energy? Grab your mat and let's do this! We build heat quickly with Series C and variations, and target intense core strengthening and hip and hamstring opening so we can play with some fun arm balances including crow pose, firefly, and a mashup that ends in koundinyasana 2. You might not have a ton of time, but that doesn't mean we can't go deep and have fun. Pretty please, don't skip savasana at the end ;)
This class starts with spinal stretches into sun salutations. We journey through a flow that includes a variation on side arm balance into a twisty stretch, eagle pose and Warriors 1,2 and 3. Ustrasana starts a series of backbends, and we cool down before savasana. Happy practice, Lauren
Ready to find your inner badass, play with an arm balance mashup, quiet your mind and have some fun? I thought so! Core strengthening powers the arm balance fun, and open hips and hamstrings are essential, so we get right on that. Strong shoulders make the base, and whatever else happens is icing on this badass cake.
This practice will emphasize the shoulders and hips, leading you into a deep, seated hip opener, double pigeon. It is a great, all around, feel good flow that is perfect for winding down your day and ending your week. If you are looking for a practice where you get to do a little bit of everything, this one is for you!
Reign in the wild horses of the mind with this vinyasa krama practice leading up to Vatayanasana or Horse Pose, among a few other maha moments. You'll definitely want a blanket, this practice is not recommended for anyone with an acute knee injury. Pay attention to your breath, stay present in your body, and come along with me on the journey!
