Turn Your Day Around

Keith Allen

Sometimes to turn your day around, you must turn your body upside down. Some days effortlessly feel better than others, but luckily, yoga has the power to take any day into a more positive direction. Whether you're having an excellent day or struggling, this short practice will get stuck energy flowing, your breath deep, and leave you feeling refreshed. This practice gradually touches everything from hips, heart, shoulders, twists, and culminates with an inversion, which are the most effective shapes for boosting one's mood.

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.

Be the Change, Shouldering On!

Desiree Rumbaugh & Michelle Marchildon

Fearless After Fifty, Chapter Five

Change happens. It’s happening even at this moment. We have no choice but to carry on. We carry the weight of the world on our fragile shoulders. They can become tight and rounded as well as weak. With the help of our fearless model Maria, Desiree shows how to properly position and work with the shoulder girdle. Stretches often use a yoga belt. Poses include Reverse Plank (Purvottanasana), Forearm Plank, Side Plank (Vasisthasana), Cobra (Bhujangasana), Upward Facing Dog, the yoga “push-up,” (Chaturanga), a proper Downward Facing Dog and more. If you practice correctly, you will build strong, resilient shoulders. this practice is mostly a detailed demonstration of poses.

Let It Go Freedom Flow

Kylie Larson

While developing this class, I researched what other people had said about freedom. As many people described freedom in various ways, the main take away was freedom is letting go. I had not thought of freedom in this way before. I was so excited because I believe the main point of our yoga practice is to be able to let go. Let go of attachments, expectations and anything holding you back. If freedom is letting go, and the point of yoga is letting go, well I have to conclude that yoga = freedom!! Freedom in both body and mind.

This Freedom Flow focuses on finding space in your body by opening up the shoulders and hips. This class is full of movement and each time we flow, we add on a few poses. There is quite a bit of balance in this class as we work into eagle, half moon, airplane and standing big knee pose. At the end of the class we spend some time in pigeon pose and head to knee pose finding one last release for the hips.

Release the day's stress with this mellow, stretchy class. We hit the shoulders and the hips mainly since this is where people usually are holding onto tension. This class is gentle and relaxing on the body and while this class is not necessarily Yin or Restorative, it has both properties. You will practice some Yin poses with long holds and also be put in restorative positions. One word to describe this class is "Ahhhhh."

Radha & Krishna Heart Flow

Jeanie Manchester

This class is dedicated to the Goddess Radha who is madly in love with Krishna. While the two are in love and frolic in the forests in erotic love play, Radha must learn the difficult lesson that Krishna will never belong to one person. We all inevitably learn that as much as we hold on to each other, we ultimately don't hold on to another forever.

Jeanie begins class with a short (3-minute) discussion around Radha and Krishna, and then guides you through a unique flow of warming heart and shoulder opening postures that build sequentially to full Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel Pose), and variations. Class ends with a 6-minute grounding Savasana.

This sequence is designed to prepare you for Birds of Paradise by systemically opening the chest and shoulders through a succession of half-bound poses working towards some full binds towards the end of class. Hamstrings are also a focal point. If you are blessed with "strong" shoulders a strap or belt may be of use. Finding freedom within the confines of a bind is a learned skill and a great metaphor for life!
