Section 1
  • What does it really mean to “ground down” through our feet in standing poses? In this short class, you’ll explore soft tissue mobilization practices for your feet and calves that can give you a more tangible understanding of this—enhancing how stable you feel on a foundational level. Have some marbles, a therapy ball, and a dowel (or broomstick) on hand before you begin… and enjoy your practice!
Section 2
  • To increase flexibility, yogis often focus on stretching—less explored, but perhaps equally efficient, are self-myofascial release practices. In this tension-relieving class, you’ll pave the way for open and easeful movement by freeing-up your lower body (calves, quads, IT bands, hamstrings, and glutes) with foam rolling practices. A foam roller that has grooves would be optimal and also have a dowel (or broomstick) on hand.
Section 3
  • A coordinated (steady and strong) core is everything in yoga—especially when it comes to arm balance and backbend practices. In this short yet potent class, you’ll explore targeted strength-building exercises for your glutes, abdominals, and lower back—activating the power center of your practice. Before you begin, have a resistance band, a thin foam pad/yoga brick (to elevate your feet in bridge variations), and a dowel (or broomstick) on hand.
Section 4
  • Deep binds and twists require well-aligned rotational power through the spine. In this short class, you’ll free up your upper body (thoracic spine and neck) with subtle mobility exercises, creating the openness you need for these practices. Have a blanket and a dowel (or broomstick) available for this one.
Section 5
  • Repetitive weight-bearing practices (think: the traditional vinyasa) can be taxing on the arms, wrists, and hands. This feel-good class is designed to relieve that tension through targeted stretches. All you’ll need is a few blankets.
