A little practice every day is better than a big practice once or twice a week. While a longer practice is ideal, you don't always have time to fit it in your schedule. This is a 20 minute yoga flow that touches on a little bit of everything, core, back, chest, shoulders, arms, legs, hips and hamstrings. This is Matt's go-to practice when he only has 20 minutes to squeeze in some yoga. It's an accessible sequence for all levels that you can practice again and again.
When your schedule is full and you feel like you don't have any time for your yoga practice, then this class is for you! This is a full body yoga practice that focuses on the core, back, shoulders, hips and hamstrings. A little bit of everything to get you in the flow for your day. I know you're busy, so take these next 10 minutes to yourself and enjoy!
This is Matt's favorite hip-opening practice and his "go to" class when his hips feel tight. The postures in this sequence will open the entire circumference of your hips. Loosening tight hips will improve your range of motion and circulation, alleviate back pain and free up the rest of your body to function optimally. This is a great practice to do at the end of your day or after a long run, bike or hike.
Like Sun Salutations, Moon Salutations can be included as part of a longer class, or practiced by themselves as a rejuvenating and restorative sequence. They are especially nice to do in the evening as the meditative, calming quality of flowing through the poses helps to form a strong connection to the breath, preparing the body and the mind for a restful night’s sleep. This is also a great practice for soothing your Soul on thighs days when you need some love. The asanas we will move through, stretch and strengthen all the muscle groups, aiding in flexibility and increasing the healthy function and balance of the respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems. Lastly, this practice brings a complete chakra balance. The first three chakras are stimulated with the hip opening and forward bend poses, the fourth and the fifth chakras are stimulated with the backbend and the opening of the shoulders and arms, and finally the last three chakras are stimulated with the forward bends and side bends. Overall opening the channels for easy flow of energy (prana), which brings balance to the whole body.
This is a quick hip opening yoga flow using blocks designed to create more mobility in the hips. We will explore various ways the thigh bone moves in the hip socket using weight bearing poses that strengthen and stretch the hips.
Sometimes you're in the mood for a good 30 min vinyasa flow class, but you're not in the mood to do chaturanga! If it's that kind of day, this is the class for you. Skipping chaturanga we turn the focus on our lower body. We will flow on the breath creating that vinyasa energy, which always builds a strong heat in the body, while focusing the mind. This is a full body flow, with a heightened focus on strong legs and glutes, with poses like yogi squats and warrior 3. As well as hip stability and flexibility with poses like Active Lizard, and Tree…overall you will feel strong, and balanced after this class.
This practice focuses on creating strength, stability and space in the low back. When your low back is strong and stable, it allows for more space in your mid and upper back, your shoulders and your hips. This class is especially beneficial if you sit for long periods of time or if you just want to strengthen your core and release low back discomfort.
This is Part 1 of a "Grounding 2 Part Practice." Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth. This practice relies on earthing science and grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can have positive effects on your body. After more than a year into the pandemic and with things beginning to open up, it is important that we take some time to ground back into our bodies. We’ve all dealt with trauma in one way or another this past year and grounding can help. Grounding involves re-engaging the legs and feet to feel sure of ourselves and safe in our bodies. This slow flow will help you strengthen the arches of the feet and learn how to hug the mid-line for spinal support and strong legs and core.

“Surya Namaskar B” or Sun Salutation B is a great practice to build stamina and focus. This series includes seven poses, each influencing a different muscle joint and organ. Arms, shoulders, lower back, hamstrings, chest, hips, knees, neck, psoas...core! We will tune into it all! Needless to say the series build solar energy/heat in the body and boosts your overall “shakti” as you move continuously to the rhythm of your breathe. Do 3 to 5 rounds of this series for the full benefits. Listen to your body as you’re moving through each pose and rest whenever needed.
