5 Yoga Classes for Self-Care

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha

The most important relationship you will ever have is the relationship you have with yourself. Self-love and care is at the very core of wellbeing. By caring for yourself and maintaining a positive and healthy relationship with yourself, you’re not only able to build healthy and fufilling relationships with others, but you have the ability to create and enjoy the kind of life you want.

If you’re in need of some nurturing and self care maintenance in matters of body, mind and spirit — you’re in the right place.

  • Self Love is the Answer with Claudine Lafond: In various stages of your life, you feel differently about yourself. The ability to love yourself changes based on a collection of your internal and external environments. Focus on YOU as you explore asanas like ardha hanumanasana, baby crow and camel pose. Cultivate and nourish seeds of self love that will energetically spread through all parts of your being. Stir up love, breathe together and connect to the collective pulse. Prepare for an uplifting experience! Props Needed: Two blocks.
  • Self Compassion Meditation with Tiffany Cruickshank: In today’s busy world, it’s easy to beat yourself up with judgement and expectations. This inner conflict creates a barrier that can hold you back from living a life of gratitude. Develop your own compassion through self-awareness. Using a blanket or bolster, find a comfortable seated position and focus inward to explore self-acceptance and self-love. Coexist in a healthy relationship with yourself and your surroundings. Props Suggested: A blanket or a bolster.
  • Nurture Yourself with Tara Judelle: Give time to get into your body to restore and re-center. Self care is one of the greatest gifts you have to nurture the presence within. A low, slow supportive floor class to give you the space to open, ground and shower yourself with love. A great class to do when you need a little extra love. Props Needed: Two blocks, two blankets, a bolster and a strap.
  • Yes, You Matter with Amy Ippoliti: If you’re in need of some nurturing and self care maintenance in matters of body, mind, spirit, you’re in the right place. A feel good sequence of chatturanga free flows and poses that soothe and strengthen your lower back, open your neck, chest and shoulders, leaving you feeling spectacular and ready to take on whatever is next. Props Needed: Two blocks, a blanket and wall space.
  • Self Love Yin with Giselle Mari: Cover some decent ground, giving love to your stomach, heart, and intestine meridians as you focus on overall self-love. Using long holds and the use of props, allow your body to drop in deep and open up so you can love yourself and others with more spaciousness and ease. Props Suggested: A bolster, block and a blanket.
