Ready for a festival of lights on your mat? The triumph of light over darkness and insight over ignorance. Good stuff! Get ready for lots of breath-work, and some fun explorations with forearm stand and hollowback stag pose (maybe at the wall)!
Hello friends! In this flow we're going to work toward twisting half moon in all kinds of creative and meaningful ways. Count on lots of twists, IT band opening, and love for your outer-hips along the way. You'll also find some fiery ab work in forearm plank and other juicy surprises. Grab two blocks and let's start the party!
We're moving toward Lord of the Dance pose so you can count on lots of shoulder, chest, upper back and quadriceps opening along with twists and forward folds to keep us centered. Monkey pose makes an appearance and you may decide to explore that pose in forearm stand as well. One-legged King Pigeon Pose II is a potential stop on this journey, so you may want to grab a strap. Keep breathing and keep moving (heart) forward!
Ready to play with some cosmic energy balls and get that shakti flowing? Then this is for you! Please grab two blocks and a blanket and get ready to find your through-line as we play. Lots of standing balance, tons of deep hamstring opening, twists, backbends in surprising places, pigeon variations and so much fun. Let's get witchy, yogis!
Hello friends! Ready for an energizing, creative flow that may or may not lead to visvamitrasana? Awesome, grab a couple of blocks and let's play. You can expect lots of shoulder, hip, hamstring and side-body opening, along with standing balance, core strengthening, and so much more. Enjoy, yogis!
Yogis, if you're looking to shift your perspective, please grab two blocks and follow me! We're going to deeply open the hips, shoulders and hamstrings so we can play with arm balances including koundinyasana 2 and inversions including many different headstand variations (please be sure your neck feels good and you have a long-term headstand practice if you do the variations!) Enjoy!
Sometimes you just need to get moving to make those prana sparks fly! This practice incorporates lots of core strengthening and heart opening in preparation for forearm stand variations along with lots of other treats along the way! Enjoy, yogis!
