Section 1
  • Release and strengthen along your spine through this sequence of stretches and gentle movements. Work with bridge pose, windshield wipers, and bird-dog to give your spine supportive mobility.
  • Take good care of your low back as you age for a lifetime of mobility and feeling good. Strengthen your lower body and open up through your sides, hips, and inner thighs in this functional practice.
  • Encourage spinal mobility, nourish the tissues of your lower back, and open your hamstrings and outer hips in this calming class. Working with these areas can ease lower-back pain, but if yours is chronic or very intense be sure to consult your doctor before you begin.
  • Encourage space and ease in your hips and back with this nourishing sequence of deep release, pulsation, and relaxation. Begin with grounded poses and make your way up to standing movements to bring fluidity to hips and low back.
  • Maintain fluidity in your spine with a powerful combination of focused movement and breath. Move methodically with detailed alignment as you work your spine in all directions.
  • If you're looking to strengthen and lengthen your back body, you've come to the right place! First, explore two key backbending principles before moving through back bending that includes camel variations, a locust flow, and two versions of bow pose. End with some supine hip openers and savasana. Enjoy the magic and have fun!
  • A well-rounded flow that fits just like your favorite t-shirt and jeans. Flow through sun salutations, strong standing poses, lower to the ground for some backbends, and have an opportunity to play with headstand. Close with savasana and seated meditation, and leave feeling warm, balanced, and still. No props needed.
  • Enjoy a little bit of stretchy goodness for your whole body. Start on your back, lengthening your hamstrings and outer hips. Move onto low lunges with side stretche, strong standing poses with shoulder opening, and more. Leave class feeling balanced in mind and body.
