Section 1
  • This simple, slow, and steady morning sequence features classic poses, self-massage techniques, and kapalabhati breathing. It's perfectly designed to help you energize, find clarity of mind, and work through any a.m. stiffness you might feel so that you're ready to meet the day!
  • Mobilize your joints with this gentle morning practice, which you can also do any other time of day if you need to reset and refresh.
  • In this 45-minute beginner class, you'll move slowly and steadily through classic standing poses, basic backbends, and simple seated forward bends.
  • Mobilize your lower back in this breath-focused class. You’ll begin with isolated lower back movement from supine and hands and knees. After that you’ll practice a range of common poses—cobra, crescent lunges, warrior ll, extended side angle pose, dynamic bridge, and more—all while working to find space and freedom in your lower back. Enjoy exploring this area of your body while moving at a pace that’s comfortable for you! Have a rolled-up paper towel or an eraser on hand for this class.
  • Want to feel more stable and strong in your standing poses? In this fundamentals practice—through an exploration of mountain, upward salute, tree, and more—you’ll use props to better understand and implement common cues in this category of poses. Enjoy the process of making your practice more effective from the ground up.
  • Rest, breathe, and let gravity take over with a 20-minute restorative practice designed to relax you from head to toe!
  • Join Corina for a comprehensive introduction to the basics of yin yoga. As you hold foundational poses (like heart bench, praying mantis, sleeping swan, and bridge), she encourages you to go on the inward journey to explore what “surrender and release” is all about in yoga.
  • According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the evening is the time to let the spirit rest in the heart. In this reclined practice, you’ll begin with a guided visualization as you lie with a bolster under your knees and a blanket under your head. After that, you’ll do gentle stretches that include held hamstring stretches, a supported bridge pose, reclined and figure four twists, and more. Allow yourself to relax into each pose and let gravity do its work. Rest in savasana at the end for as long as you like to prepare for a good night’s rest.
