Push Up Resolution
This class is a celebration of taking it step by step and enjoying the journey. With no full pushups in sight, you will build strength and stamina in your shoulders, chest and back using eccentric work and a boatload of plyometrics. it’s an absolute blast and a great way to start 2021. This is a live class so you will hear some good natured interaction among the participants. – Mandy
Your Shoulders: Moving Beyond Fear
Poll any commited Yogi and you will discover that most of us have had an issue with our shoulder in the past. We tend to blame common poses like chaturanga dandasana or side plank. Or we malign our poor posture or habits. From a somatic perspective though, none of these deserve the blame. It’s time to develop a healthier relationship between our movement and our body maps or image.
Don’t Let Anyone Tell You That You Aren’t Hip
Novelty is a great way to inform the body and build up your body map! Our class will meander into some very fun and challenging postures. You will get to see how informed hips are functional hips!
Here for Now
I think we’re all a little tired right now. Things are piling up for sure at this stage in the pandemic. This is a practice that I offered recently to bring a bit of TLC and care to some students who are dealing with some heavy stuff.
Stronger and More Flexible Hamstrings
More a workshop than a class, this practice features a slow and somatic warmup for the lower body. But once we rise to standing, expect some fiery leg work to strengthen the hamstrings and reduce stiffness. We peak in a supported hanumanasana (full splits). Along the way you will learn about how the body works as a unit and that isolating may not be the key to achieving pet poses like the splits.
