MIKKI TROWBRIDGE YOGA

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

This is a 45 minute all levels yoga class, with enough instruction to be appropriate for beginning yogis. We’ll move through a well-rounded practice, but our focus is mindfully cultivating stability and ease in the shoulders. Have less than 45 minutes? Do the first 20 minutes or the last 15 minutes, and your shoulders will thank you. Read More

This is a 25 minute morning flow, that really could be practiced any time of day, but the intention behind sequencing was to gradually shift your body from bed into movement. 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.
