“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!
Free your shoulders in this Strong Flow Practice. Perfect if you are carrying stress in the upper back, shoulders and neck! Plank and core work help to build heat along with sun salutations to get you out of your head and connected to the present moment. Deep shoulder opening is worked in throughout the practice. A relaxing resting pigeon pose calms the body and prepares you for a deep and restorative Savasana!
Enjoy a gentle warm up, Series A, Series B, standing balance, spinal twists, core strengthening and dancer’s bridge followed by bridge and wheel pose. The cool-down includes happy baby pose, thread the needle, reclined twists and Savasana.
Rather than being overly focused with what the posture looks like from the outside, focus on how each posture feels from the inside. Make friends with whatever you discover!
Whether you've been on a plane for twelve hours, in a car, or just sitting at your desk for too long, this is for you! A mellow, steady flow to build some heat followed by lots of nice stretching for your psoas, hip flexors, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, shoulders and chest! Yes, please! Supported bridge pose and supported shoulder stand followed by a nice hold in a wide straddle forward fold send you into Savasana feeling like yourself again, only better ;)
Take a conscious counter-pose to your daily life of hunching over smartphones, keyboards and steering wheels with an open-hearted stance with your shoulders on your back. A selection of special Kundalini Kriyas awakens the spine, bandhas and navel center are activated to support you in every move you make. Cultivate strength and stability through the legs and side-body in the flow of standing postures, winding down into the ground through the crown to rise up into headstand, possibly transitioning into an arm-balance variation.
Series C kicks us off and then we open things up and dive more deeply into the hips. Skandasana and eka pada koundinyasana, bird of paradise, bound ardha chandrasana and single pigeon help you release anything you might be sitting on. We take time to turn things upside down, open the hamstrings and the heart, and work the core deeply. The foundation of everything is mindful breath, and pranayama is emphasized throughout. We can’t change the environment around us all the time, but we can change the way we respond to it. Guided savasana should leave you super relaxed.
A balance of strength building and flexibility! Fire up your core and use that heat to ease deeper into hanumanasana, the monkey pose more commonly known as the splits. Grab a couple blocks (firm pillows work too) and explore your edge!
This is a strong flow that is suited for all levels of experienced yogis who are interested in pushing some limits while connecting to the breath and body. We will flow around the mat like a mandala changing perspective and getting out of the comfort zone of just facing forward. Of course we have a little of everything here with inversion prep and practice which is a key element I like to always incorporate into my classes. Enjoy yogis!
Hips, hamstrings, shoulders and blanket abs are the focus, along with approaching your fear and working with it, and developing a breathing practice for those challenging moments in life (including the ones that happen when Waze sends you in circles for twenty minutes on a long car ride, and your daughter has to pee :)) Work it on the mat, so it shows up for you in the world.
We begin the class with hamstring stretches, twists and some core. Getting up onto the feet, we flow into surya namaskar C. This sun salutation promotes pliability in the hip flexors, quads and shoulders. We follow the sun salutation with a fairly long, standing pose flow. Following this flow, we recline into supta baddha konasa, more backbends, and an inversion. Class concludes with savasana and a closing. Enjoy.
