In this asana (yoga posture) practice you will explore keeping your heart open as you move through postures such as plank and downward facing dog. The class ends with gentle restorative postures to offer self-love to yourself by supporting your body to become calm, still, and relaxed.
Suggested props: 2 blocks, 2 blankets
Go with the flow
Sometimes we just need to flow with it. Explore this idea as we move through asanas (postures). Be mindful if you loose connection with your breath to take a break and begin again once you are balanced.
Suggested props: None needed. A blanket if you like for under your knees in savasana. If you have tight hamstrings use blocks under your hands when necessary.
Ahimsa is one of the ethical practices that someone on the path of yoga begins to practice even before the asanas (postures). Ahimsa refers not only to not harming of yourself and others physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. Even your thoughts and words can cause pain. One small step to take is on your yoga mat. Become aware of when you are judgmental or pushing yourself past your limit. How can you soften around the edges in your asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), and dhyana (meditation)?
Twisting Poses will help restore your spine’s natural range of motion, cleanse your organs, and stimulate circulation. We will be wringing our selves out like a wet wash clothe, cleansing from the inside out.
