Hug the Midline

Angela Kukhahn

Lets explore our core! Our core is much more than just the six pack abs that we so often think of! Grab a couple of blocks and a strap and let’s have some fun exploring how firing up our inner and outer thighs can help us connect even deeper to our core! We will warm up our wrists and shoulders, explore plank, side plank, flow a bit, find our hollowbody both on our back and balancing on our tip toes and even find a solid connection to our core in Headstand with the help of the blocks and straps! This class warms you up with sun salutations, and then gives you time to hold more strengthening postures. Expect to sweat and be challenged!

Strengthen, Protect & Heal the Lower Back

Desiree Rumbaugh

We all have habits and some are better than others. If you have chronic back pain anytime during the day or in your practice, check your posture. It can be that simple and yet it will take some work to change. In this class we will be working to change our patterns using strength as well as myo-fascial release to create new ways of moving. If you experience back pain during this class, ask yourself if it feels like injury pain or just stiffness. With stiffness it is common to have some "discomfort" when doing cat cow or lying over a block. The integration of abdominal strength with any kind of backbending exercise will ultimately relieve the pain. Get ready for a new lower back experience!

Yoga for Upper Body Strength

Desiree Rumbaugh

This is not a typical flow class, but it does move at a very even pace. Many yogis need more isolated practice in both pushing and pulling for balanced upper body strength so they can safely practice sun salutations, inversions, arm balances and backbends. Here you will be able to focus on building integration and strength in your neck, shoulders, arms and chest with simple yet powerful yoga poses and very little equipment.

Strong Back, Soft Front

Elise Fabricant

Brené Brown, a great thought leader of our time, talks of "Strong Back, Soft Front, Wild Heart." In this class we will explore how strengthening our back body can soften our front body, ultimately unleashing our wild, unfettered heart.

This class starts slowly so that you can experience the actions of strengthening the back body, from heels to head. Eventually the pace picks up and includes a unique flow from plank to forearm plank to sphinx to dolphin. You'll also play with common poses in uncommon ways, and kick butt on a (invisible) pull-up bar!

Throughout this moderately vigorous class there's an invitation to clarify your backbone, i.e. what you stand for in this world. As you wind down with some sweet restorative poses, you'll also have a chance to replenish the compassion in your heart.

Absolution Flow: Wheel of Fire

Mark Morford

Little-known fact: Backbends are often just as much, if not more, about opening the front body – the chest, the heart, the thighs, the belly – as they are about getting the spine to give up its deep, psycho-emotional traumas and delights.

Here’s a relatively advanced (read: do be careful, OK?), backbend-heavy practice designed, on the physical level, to explore multiple modes and intensities of spinal flexion: deep folds, multiple flavors of backbend, a strappy Natarajasana, challenges to both your focus and balance. But on the other, less obvious levels? Far more interesting possibilities for deep release, expansion.

How intense do you want it? How deep are you willing to go? How much release can you truly handle, without harming yourself and without obeying your nagging ego’s urges to either push harder or collapse and give up? Shall we find out?

Take time for you! Wake up your postpartum body and energize your physical and spiritual health. It's time to let yoga make you feel wonderful again!

Get back into your yoga practice and get your pre-pregnancy body back. This is the perfect class to do while baby naps or just hangs out in a swing or on a blanket close by.
