A practice about coming home to ourselves, to the Divine Mother, to Mother Earth. An acknowledgement that we are all made of the same stuff and a celebration of that reality as we move, breathe and flow. Expect lots of deep hip, shoulder and hamstring opening in this one, folx! Some fun extended hand-to-heel pose and half lotus variations that may lead to bharadvaja's twist and yoga dandasana (please listen to your body and make sure you never feel deep hip openers in your knees!) Enjoy, yogis!
Having some low back or sciatic pain? Want to practice in a way that will strengthen and stabilize your sacroiliac joints and low back? Kate to the rescue! Grab a block and get ready to move mindfully, yogis!
Sat Nam, yogis! Get aligned with your highest truth in this creative, flowing sequence that opens the hips, shoulders and hamstrings, fires up the core and gives you chances to play on your hands and upside down!
You are what you seek! You have to create the energy from within to receive that energy from around you. If you want love, you have to be loving. If you want to be happy you have to find the joy inside and put it out there! If you want things to work out you have to be willing to work! Are you ready? Let's do this!
Saucha is the name of this game, folx! Often translated as purity or cleanliness, referring to both the space around you and the space inside you, in this practice we're going to do a big energetic cleanse! Are you ready for a deep clean?
This is a heat-building flow with lots of breath-work to both ground you and open you. Lots of creative reps and variations in places you wouldn't expect them, hip opening and heart opening galore. Enjoy, yogis!
A class that's all about deep connection and celebrating our beautiful desire to connect with one another! Lots of opportunities to get centered with creative core work, fun standing splits variations to check in with your balance, and a flow that might or might not lead you to one-legged crow pose and bherundasana (chin stand)! Two blocks are helpful, yogis!
A little garuda mudra and pranayama for inward freedom and clarity of vision starts us off on an adventure that targets pigeon variations (even during your core work), eagle variations, and monkey pose right-side up and upside-down! Omg along the way, fun with standing balance, twists and all kinds of love for your shoulders, hips and hamstrings. Sat Nam, yogis, let's play!
A Shiva/third chakra-geared sequence designed to help us harness the power of transformation balancing Shiva and Shakti energies (masculine and feminine), so we can both embrace change as it happens, and also find the strength to change the things we want to shift! Whether you need to change your approach or the way you might habitually respond to situations in ways that aren't serving you, become your own alchemist in this practice! Think twists to wring yourself out, and backbends to open your heart to whatever may within you or around you! Fun shiva shapes, navasana for rocky waters, and a sense of humor along the way!
Tame the wild horses of your mind and come into a state of single-pointed concentration, otherwise known as yoga! We will explore horse pose in this practice, so you will want a blanket! Along the way we'll open the hips, hamstrings and shoulders and you'll have opportunities to get upside down as well. Enjoy, yogis!
