Ready, Set, Flow!

Jackie Casal Mahrou

This class is not a race, but rather an invitation to dive into your practice (and life) without hesitation, fear, or doubt. Get ready to flow, hold, and lengthen in this fun, creative and inspiring class. You will flow several times through unique variations of Sun Salutations A & B to warm your entire body, then dive deeper into heart, shoulder and hip opening postures. The flow culminates with Sundial Pose (Surya Yantrasana), Eight Angle Pose (Astavakrasana), and Tortoise Pose (Kurmasana). Enjoy!

Everyday Yamas: Ahimsa

Kristin Gibowicz

Join Kristin for a vinyasa flow that explores the intention of searching the "himsa" (the Sanskrit term that means to injure or harm) within. Ahimsa, one of the yamas or ethical guidelines for the practicing yogi, means non-violence. You can observe this by bringing awareness to the way you react to people or circumstances. Practicing every day ahimsa is non-harming behavior towards self and all beings everywhere in thought, word or deed.

Everyday Yamas: Asteya

Kristin Gibowicz

Practicing Asteya, or non-stealing, is knowing the division between need and greed. Maybe we don't shoplift, but do we steal other's thunder by interjecting or not-fully listening? Do we steal from others by being late or wasting time on social media at work? The practice of posture and breath can help integrate mind, body & spirit to bring revelation to areas of our life where we need to upgrade our ethical walk. This practice focuses on shoulders, legs, upper back and hips building to forearm stand. Even if full expression is not for you, learn the building blocks to make you successful in your expression today.

Everyday Yamas: Brahmacharya

Kristin Gibowicz

From an everyday yama perspective, we'll focus on where we put our energy. Traditionally, Brahmacharya was meant for male renunciants to practice sexual restraint and focus on the yogic path. Another interpretation of this virtue is moderation. Living in our modern world, do we focus on external things and temporary satisfaction or are we recognizing excess in our lives and practicing moderation to grow spiritually? This is a short, wonderful, full-body flow that uses different muscles groups and moves continuously, to makes you feel like you flowed for an entire hour.

Guidelines for a Balanced Life: Accessing Joy

Les Leventhal

The purpose of this video is to light you up quickly. Stop waiting to have fun in your practice and in your life. So many times I hear students say how hard that practice was but how they were able to access a level of joy they didn't know was possible or existed for them. If it's too challenging, back off. If you need to up-level and add variations, have fun. What is challenging for you, could be easy for someone else. What is easy for you might be challenging for another. You will be both of those people as you get older. So keep practicing this fun, shorter practice and give yourself permission to not need to get anywhere and just be open to what unfolds for you.

Equanimity and Balance: The Wrists

Desiree Rumbaugh & Michelle Marchildon

Fearless After Fifty, Chapter Seven.

If we’re going to feel balanced in life, we need to appreciate the passage of time, and use the “all of it” along the way. This includes our wrists and hands. Unfortunately, wrist injury is becoming all too common among yogis of all ages. In this video, we show you how to massage your wrists, stretch and lengthen the fingers, and then strengthen the hands in yoga. Poses include proper placement of the hands and wrists in Downward Facing Dog, Plank Pose, the yoga “push-up” (Chaturanga) and a stretch in Uttanasana variation called “Gorilla.” The peak pose is the ultimate wrist/arm balance, Peacock (Mayurasana). This class is mostly detailed demonstration of the poses to practice.

Live Limitless : Vasisthasana

Kylie Larson

This class will guide you into the full expression of Vasisthasana (side plank pose). Have no fear if you've never done the full expression before, you will move through all the prep work and modifications will be given.

This class starts by opening the hips and connecting to your core. A few rounds of Sun Salutations will warm you up to move deeper into longer holds in standing poses that will challenge your mind and body. This practice will help you realize you are more than your physical body and capable of much more than you realize.

Untie the Knot!

Shannon Paige

Connected and Conversational Arm Balances: Astavakrasana to Eka Pada Koundinyasana

Tension is a brilliant teacher. The trick is to let the tension be strong rather than hardened. By leveraging the art of deep inward connection, engagement and embodiment, to the point of being mindfully tied in an arm balancing knot, one can stretch the tension out like a suspension bridge to support and sustain more extended postures. To this end, we will progress from simple to complex, layer progressive actions and openings, to embody the techniques and strength to allow a growing confidence and conversation between two arm balances at our apex peak expression. Beyond the exploration of arm balance connection, the effects of this practice are ease in the neck and shoulders in addition to opening the hips, quadriceps and hamstrings. Though it is a strong practice, you will feel gooooood leaving the mat!

You've Got This: Crow to Chaturanga

Kylie Larson

If not me, who? If not now, when? This class, built around getting into Bakasana (Crow Pose) and shooting back into Chaturanga, is all about believing in yourself and going for it! In order to make that happen, we spend a lot of time warming up the core, activating the muscles used to make the shoot-back happen, opening the hips, and working the flexion of the spine.

This class also has a solid flow element making it a very active class. Be prepared to balance on your hands and your feet, twist, crunch and stretch!

As you work through the challenging parts of class, I remind you, "If not you, who? If not now, when?"

Guidelines for a Balanced Life: Arm Balancing

Les Leventhal

This arm balancing practice is meant for you to dance and play on the mat. When I first started doing arm balances, it was frustrating. It begged for my commitment. Now it's fun. Having balance and access is fun and so is falling and losing balance and noticing when my attention to breath and gaze are not steady. What we are really growing in this practice is patience. Build a strong solid foundation, so when the balance comes, the experience is flowing with freedom. For me, it's like defying gravity and then learning how to surf it and align with it. What I came to notice is how this practice was a mirror for my relationships, defiance and now, harmony. Do this class over and over again. You will have so much fun and it will be so different every time and you will come to have a fantastic love affair with your own techniques! You will worry less about what everyone else can do and you cannot (on and off the matt). That is a part of aparigraha: non-coveting and non-greed. Enjoy!

Join Yoga Therapist, Shy Sayar, for a concise exploration of proper alignment technique in crow pose, and learn how to protect your wrists and bear the weight of your body in your core - where it belongs!

Tittibasana Flow: Balance and Fly

Kylie Larson

In this class you will work towards Tittibasana, or Firefly pose. In order to get into the arm balance Tittibasana, you will need to stretch the hamstrings, connect to your core strength and practice balancing on your hands.

While this is a vinyasa class and the poses are linked together, the only breath to breath vinyasa is in the initial Sun Salutations. After that we take our time in the poses, and work on on stretching the hamstrings, side bodies while strengthening the core. This class is a nice balance of stretch and strength.

After practicing for a while it is common to decide what you can and cannot do in your practice. The process of saying "I can't" keeps us from exploring what is possible. In this vigorous flow, we will explore our self imposed limitations and see what we can do. The sequence focuses on hip opening and arm balancing.
