Goddess Get Down
We love a goddess squat or two around here! I love that this pose can feel as invigorating, freeing, releasing and fun for you guys as it does for me. We build our way up in this short but uplifting class with a focus not only on glutes and quads, and releasing the inner adductors, but some heart openers too! Sometimes to lift up, you have to get down!
Time to release your inner wild woman. Yes she IS in there, believe me.. A friend said a few days ago how good it feels and how necessary it is to let your emotions RIP through your body every now and then. The calming tools we use are important, but sometimes, you gotta let rip to release first.
As we continue through the yoga practice, it may start to become clear that your internal world has a significant effect on your external world, just as it does vice versa. Whether you're looking for some relief from the physical heat around you, or whether you feel something is building within, drop into some cooling, releasing, breaths and notice the difference 10 minutes can make.
Not the training wheels kind, the hip support kind! Strengthening the muscles supporting the biggest joints, nerves and heaviest structure of our body can have so many more benefits than a nice looking toosh. It can help improve low back pain, tight or sore hips, and balance, to name a few. A short effective glute (and surrounds) workout here.
Sometimes feel like you need a magic spell to get your concentration to stay in one place? We use ujjayi breath with some gentle repetitive movement in this short class to bring us back into focus, and out of the monkey mind. An ideal work / study break, or morning routine for when waking up is tough.
It happens to us all, whether its stress from work or full blown rage at your partner, or the dreaded PMS, it's all part of our emotional spectrum. Shake it off, take a few breaths with me, and return to the issue at hand, perhaps a slightly less vibrant shade of red. We use two techniques called 'moon piercing breath' and 'sitali' here.
