MIKKI TROWBRIDGE YOGA

20 Minute Slow & Steady Flow – for those days when you just want to move with your breath and need to hit refresh.

The movements and transitions in this sequence are slowed down a bit – but nothing is held for more than a couple breaths and therefore there’s not much explanation or instruction of poses. I don’t recommend this class for beginning yogis.
I also give several options in class – including handstand and arm balance options if you want them, but I always give alternatives if you don’t.

30 minute Layered Flow which gives us both an opportunity to hold postures and to flow with our breath. The holds are meant to give us space to build integrity and to focus on alignment. And then the movement challenges that integrity. Can we build safe postures in stillness and then maintain that awareness and alignment as we start to move with the breath?

This class is in response to those of you who come to my regular studio classes, who wanted a similar flow to take home. The pace of this class is quick and is meant for a Level 2/3 class. There is very little pose instruction or break down. For those of you newer to my style and flows, I repeat each of the sequences 2-3 times in this video, so be patient with yourself, or even back up the video. You’ll pick up the sequences!

25 minute Level 1/2 – 2 slow and steady flow. This flow is all about slowing down. This will be a continuous, nonstop flow, but will never move very quickly. I encourage you to find a slow rhythm to your breath as you start class, and spend your transitions in this class really enjoying the spaces in between the poses. We rush enough in life, no need to rush through our yoga practice as well. Enjoy yogis!!

New yoga class up on YouTube! This is my personal 20 minute morning flow – fairly straight forward flow to connect with the breath, get the body moving and to open specific areas of the body that for me, tend to be tight in the morning. Read More

Forearm Stand (Pincha Mayurasana) is definitely one of my favorite poses … but it wasn’t always. I remember when I was new to inversions, being just completely overwhelmed by this pose – what do you mean you want me to keep my elbows under my shoulders, and lift away from the floor, and get my hips over my shoulders, and go upside down without looking like a massive banana or seriously face planting?!? Yeah right. Luckily I had super knowledgeable teachers that were able to break this pose down for me and once I began practicing the pose repeatedly in my body, it eventually started to make sense in my mind and in my muscles. And now we are buddies. I put together this video and blog post combo on Forearm Stand in the hopes that you can develop a friendship with this pose as well. Read More
