Section 1
  • Cranky feet? Join Jean as she guides you through a sequence that will provide some much-needed sole support. This quick 15-minute practice will conclude with a self-massage foot-rub technique you can do for yourself every day.
Section 2
  • Avoid knee injuries in your yoga practice with these knee-safety essentials from Anamargret. She explains how to engage the muscles that support the knee and how to adjust your alignment to protect the knee, as she leads you through four standing postures—mountain pose (tadasana), warrior (virabhadrasana) 1 and 2, and triangle (trikonasana).
Section 3
  • Do your hips and hamstrings feel more like enemies than friends? This practice will help you warm and gently ease into deeper stretches with the help of a yoga belt.
Section 4
  • Anamargret leads you through three simple poses to alleviate sciatica pain—the half locust, bridge, and modified cow poses. She also urges you to see a physician before beginning any practice, so that you know the cause of your pain. Some causes of sciatica are bulging discs, tight or weak lower back muscles, and tight hips. In this session, Anamargret emphasizes being gentle with your body and moving in and out of each posture a few times, connecting the movement with the breath.
Section 5
  • Linking breath with movement, you'll locate, explore, and warm your back muscles with these strengthening variations of shalabhasana (locust pose).
Section 6
  • Where do you store tension? In your neck? In your shoulders? Join Emily for this shoulder-opening sequence that will help you work through your tight spots and find relief.
Section 7
  • Increase concentration, reduce anxiety, and enhance right-left integration of body and mind with this unique practice, which uses asymmetrical arm and leg movements in postures to increase mental focus. You will also work with the breath—extending the length of the breath and briefly retaining the breath—in some of the asana and in ujjayi pranayama (pranayama done with a slight constriction of the throat). The sequence includes standing, forward-bending, and back-bending postures, twists, and floor work, as well as pranayama.\n\nFor this class you'll need: cushion or chair for seated pranayama."
