A fun and adventurous journey of movement and awareness to brighten the core. Relearn some primal or developmental movements to gain trust in your amazing core muscles. This practice will take you through many variations of pigeon pose as well as some asymmetrical arm balancing.
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.
Nurture the Process
A wiggly, stretchy practice that stays low to the mat. You’ll get some time in some standard and adventurous hip openers but also explore some somatic movements and strength drills. As you move you will learn and be inspired by the biological process of learning. Just a touch of neuroscience!
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.
Sneaky Strength Wall Practice
I love a practice like this. We start off nice and slow, almost restorative-y. Over 75 minutes we transition into a full body Vinyasa practice that will really challenge you! We use the wall as a creative prop. The wall provides opportunities for assistance but also greater challenges. This class was a real hit at the studio, I hope you like it too!
