This is a 37 minute (including savasana) practice that brings together some of my favorite “feel-good” poses and movements. Nothing too strenuous and not a ton of focus on alignment in this class – just classic shapes that make it easier to breathe and feel-good in your body. We start in a long hold in childs pose, and utilizing work in table and puppy dog pose to begin getting into the spine, upper back, chest and shoulders. We move through a variety of lunges with variations for creating space in the body and play with some dancing warrior 2s. We round out our practice with some twisting malasana (squat), seated hip release in bound angle, a bridge and a supine twist before settling into savasana. Read More
This is a 45 minute practice for those of us who don’t love backbends, or are looking to understand backbends a bit more. We will be using the natural ebb and flow of the breath to create ease and stability in the low belly and low back, allowing our backbends to be fluid, living, evolving shapes as opposed to feeling stagnant or forced. We explore the subtle actions of our breath in virasana, table and plank before moving into a standing series with low lunge, crescent, warrior 1 and warrior 3. We apply our breath and the awareness built in this practice to sphinx, cobra, upward facing dog, and a mild camel. We round our practice out with a hamstring release, a supine twist, and reclined bound angle. Read More
35 minute practice of my greatest hits for the hips. With a focus both on stability and release in the muscles that influence the hips and low back, this class includes all my go-to practices when my hips or low back are feeling off. We begin on our back with some stability work in figure four legs, before moving through standing postures that build stability and release in variations of chair, warrior 2, low lunge, 1/2 splits, down dog, lizard and standing balance work. We end with an active then passive pigeon, before settling into Constructive Rest Pose legs. Read More
This is a 25 minute practice meant to boost your heart rate, build some heat and give you steady movement, especially for those of you who are feeling cooped up right now. We move nonstop for the first 18 minutes, and then slow it down to leave ourselves balanced before heading into our day. Our steady flow includes dynamic movement in lunges, warriors and balance poses, with visits to boat, plank, and mountain climbers. You’ll likely be a little winded and a little sweaty by the end of this class. Fair warning. Read More

Do the first 20 minutes or the last 15 minutes, and your shoulders will thank you. Read More

his is a full, well-balanced 60 minute yoga class that’s focused on grounding energy and exploring the deep twisting poses. From the comfort of my home to yours.

We’ll end with some release work for the outer hip, supported bridge and legs up the “wall” before settling into savasana. Read More
This practice is for those days when you need to move mindfully, but you don’t have a ton of time. Just a little over 20 minutes of steady, nonstop movement (no savasana included, so you’ll want to leave some time for that). Our flow includes many classics – down dog, cat cow lunges, all three warriors, extended side angle, humble warrior, eagle pose. Plus an invitation for some challenge work in plank and side plank, dolphin, and potentially some handstand hops (with non-hopping options given). Read More
Just shy of 45 minutes, without savasana. This Level 2 flow yoga class builds to Crow Pose (Bakasana), but never requires you to actually take flight if you don’t want to. The flow will build the awareness, strength and space necessary for Crow Pose – meaning that for those of you who aren’t interested in arm balances, this is a core and hip focused class that will be enjoyable whether or not your feet leave the ground.

On my list of top requests for class is upper back release. Between our desks, our cell phones, our steering wheel, and how much we just tend to live in our brains … the upper back gets very neglected and very tight. Here is a mini sequence to help get the upper back moving and to release some of the typical tight spots. Pick one or two poses from this sequence, or do them all. Either way, your upper back will thank you.
