This class is a reminder that we choose our thoughts & everything is energy. We start standing and add a Tai Chi energy flow into several poses. We end with handstands, backbends and hip openers.
Working with the mantra "So-Ham", meaning "I am that", we build a deep standing flow to get out of the mind and into the body. The flow is followed by a brief meditation. SUGGESTED PROPS: 1 Block, 1 Strap

Wondering if you have tight hips? Here's a simple test. Stand and look down at your feet. If your toes point outward rather than straight ahead, your hip muscles are probably overworked and need to be stretched. For people who sit a long time at work, the hip flexors and rotators become tight, and the gluteal muscles become weak. This combination negatively affects our ability to walk and maintain proper posture. This quick yoga hip sequence focuses on stretching the muscles around the whole circumference of the hip joint.
In this video, Wendy G uses the wall to engage and rotate the shoulders. This is a great 20 minute break from sitting at a computer, holding a baby or after a long commute. Using the wall helps engage the muscles as they are stretched, thus improving mobility.
