When we feel energized and inspired by our own practice, it's much easier to share that enthusiasm with our students. This class is all about opening up through strength and playfulness. We'll stabilize the lower body and create freedom in the shoulders and chest, so we can explore pincha mayurasana and scorpion at the wall. Props Needed: Wall space. Props Suggested: A block or bolster.
Breathe deeply and unfurl your sides to create inner balance and a feeling of spaciousness. We'll flow through poses like tree with lateral variations, half moon, vasisthasana II, and parivrtta janu sirsasana, building strength as we lengthen the side body, then coming down to the mat for a good stretch. Props Suggested: A block.
Actively restore your body and mind with a contemplative practice of forward bends and inversions. This calm, yet strong sequence is designed to ground and center you with pranayama and longer holds. We'll begin in child's pose on our bolster, move into hip openers and inversions like headstand and handstand, then conclude with nadi shodhana and legs up the wall. Props Needed: Wall space and a bolster or a few blankets.
