Section 1
  • Need more energy, enthusiasm, and courage? Activate your radiant body through the pranic hub! This area is your center of power, not only physical strength and stamina, but also prana—the sheer life force that generates joy, passion, and determination. It is the key to vibrant good health, as well as the power of transformation. Join Sandy in this dynamic practice that invigorates the pelvic area from the navel to the pelvic floor, utilizing poses such as crocodile, prone boat, locust, bridge, boat, and agni sara prep to get the fire going. This sequence can also be incorporated into a vigorous...
Section 2
  • A simple yet challenging 30-minute class that provides a little workout without all the super-fancy poses. This sequence features warrior III, knee-to-nose, eagle pose, camel pose, powerful high lunge poses, yogi push-ups, and more. Enjoy!
Section 3
  • Can't lower through chaturanga into cobra, but still looking for an active, energizing practice? No problem.

Enjoy moving through plenty of plank poses, a creative camel variation, standing poses, and much more!

Section 5
  • Jump into a somewhat nontraditional forward bend practice. Join Nikki as she helps you experience forward bends as not only calming and grounding, but challenging and vigorous as well!
Section 6
  • Endurance is essential for athletes. Find sustainable strength through breath and balance by working with smooth transitions in classic poses. This 25-minute class features warrior poses, dancer pose, hand-to-foot pose, \"abdominal squeeze,\" and more. \n\nUnroll your mat and let's begin.

Section 12
  • Most of us need a few go-to practices for those times when we're going through something particularly stressful, or just when the residual stress of life has collected to an uncomfortable degree. In this calming anti-anxiety practice, Nikki will show you how to quickly get solid in your body, with feet on the floor—and let go!

  • Looking for a really juicy, sweet practice that opens up the pelvis and hips and releases the low back? You've found it! This practice features chair, side angle, a variety of lunges and hip-openers, and concludes with pranayama and a concentration meditation. Create a conversation between your spine and lower abs and learn to garner strength from your lower body with this short (and sweet) all-levels practice!
Section 21
  • Join Allison for this relaxing 30-minute supine practice—perfect right before bed. Begin the practice on your back in apanasana (knees to chest), finding mental stillness and a smooth, even breath.

Section 22
  • In less than 30 minutes, this sequence of simple daily stretches and postures will cleanse, nourish, and strengthen all areas of your body and give you the joy of moving with the breath. You’ll start with standing warm-ups and then work from the floor with postures that increase circulation, flexibility, and strength in the back, neck, abdomen, hips, and legs. As you coordinate movement with the breath, you will find that the two seem to become one. Finally, rest on your back, letting the floor support you as you bring awareness to your breath and let your whole body relax and breathe. Prop: a...
