Looking for ways to intensify your practice? We’ve got the classes for you! This week’s featured classes will be deep and intense, leaving you strong and stretched in your body, and rested in your mind.
- Intense Flow Workout Yoga with Dice Iida-Klein: Get your sweat on! This intense flow class starts slow in standing-forward fold (uttanasana) variations and moves right along into Surya Namaskar A (sun salutation A). Keeping the pace, we make our way through variations of dancing hanuman (dancing monkey), warrior variations, triangle pose (trikonasana) and half-moon pose (ardha chandrasana). Accompanied by side
plank (vasisthasana) and forearm side plank pose, we work the obliques and abdominals. Handstand and Scorpion pose (Vrschikasana) are briefly explained as well. Get movin my fellow yogis!
- Bend Backwards with Noah: This intense burst of a class will open your legs, hips and back, and use props to open the upper back and shoulders to move strongly into backbends. Props needed: 1 block.
- Come to Know the Preciousness of Your Life with Marc Holzman: This is an intense, slow, mindful, non-stop flow class focusing on the quality and precision of the breath and foundation placement. We only stop for 5-8 minutes to practice our handstands at the wall. Otherwise it is a deliberate, introspective flow for a full 60 minutes. Required: wall for handstands if necessary.
- Stimulating Flow Sequence with Tara Judelle: In this short intense practice, we dive into arm balances, backbends, and inversions. Includes, Bakasana, parsva bakasana, Dwi pada Koundinyasana, Urdva danurasana, dwi pada viparita dandasana, sirsana 1 and sirasana arm variations
- Hips and Hamstrings Flow with Kathryn Budig: Hips and hamstrings rule this intense flow class that builds deep heat and space. Creative hamstring sun salutations lead to standing split variations and eka pada bakasana.
- Deep Hips and Shoulder Release with Felicia: Hips and shoulders are the target body parts for this deep and intense Yin practice that begins with the core of the body with opening up the hip flexors, hips and low back and then moves on to releasing the shoulder. Savasana is a sweet reward after dropping into the joyous body.
- Calm the Mind Through Flow with Chelsey Korus: You’ve only got a short time to practice but you need it all, especially calming the chatter of the mind. Through intense lunges, twists, forward folds, inversions, heart openers, and core work, feel strong and stretched in your body, and rested in your mind. Finish off in child’s pose to reset before continuing with the rest of your day. Props Suggested: Two blocks.
