This short, 20 minute practice, allows you to start the day off right with clear intentions and focus for the day. A simple flow that focuses on all the major muscle groups.
This sequence might be short but it’s effective! After finding our breath and setting our intentions we will move through 5 different core moves, targeting all four groups of abdominal muscles. A lot of us think core strength means you have to have a flat tummy or six-pack abs. And while those may be motivational goals to some of you, there really are so many more benefits that come from improving your core strength. Benefits include improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and better athletic performance on and off the yoga mat. You can do this sequence 1-3x through a few days a week to feel and see the benefits both physically and energetically.
Welcome to the celebration of life class! We move through a yummy 45-minute fiery flow practice to embrace all the things that make life life: ups and downs, awareness of what is, and a whole lot of prana (also known as breath, also known as life-force energy).
Have you ever heard someone say, "take a deep breath"? This practice is for everyone and anyone wanting to get out of their head and into their breath as a way of calming down. We explore a brief introduction with reminders as to why breathwork is so important.

This short but very sweet practice starts with a brief seated meditation honoring the precious and sacred time that this practice truly allows for.

This short meditation tunes out distraction and teaches us to focus on building self-awareness. We become so quiet that we can better hear the intuitive voice.
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. Part 3 in this series gives us an opportunity to gently stretch the legs, feet and hips to release the stresses of our everyday lives and strengthen the connection between mind and body.

In this playful practice we will explore ways to fly through arm balances and inversions. This practice begins with a variation of sun salutation c to open up the quadriceps, hip flexors and upper back before settling into some core work so you have the confidence and tools to take flight! This practice is fun, joyful, and energizing. This is an advanced practice so please modify as needed.
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 meditation uses a specific technique of looking at our thoughts like scenes in a movie. It is extremely effective for learning to detach from our thoughts and to witness them as an observer. When we learn how to do this, we cultivate the ability to truly find mental freedom and peace of mind.
