  • Deep Healing For Hips

  • A Yin Yoga Journey

    This is an hour or so of ridiculous relaxation. I don't do nearly enough yin, which is a soft and gentle practice that involves cooling and relaxing the fascia that sits on top of your muscles, as opposed to warming and activating the muscles themselves. Lots of props are used in what is basicall...

    This class is designed for people who may be on their period! It's slow, gentle, and great for helping with cramps and low back pain. But even if you're not currently surfing the crimson wave, it's still going to feel great for your back, shoulders, and general mood. Have some chocolate after!

  • Deep Twists

    This short practice is great to ring out and rinse out the internal organs. Soft and sweet twists with a few deep and energizing twists.

    This is a short series of stretches that will help if you have a backache, cramps, or any other of the wondrous symptoms that accompany your ride on the crimson wave. Low effort, high reward. *However, don't feel left out if you're lacking a uterus; this will feel great for everybody!

We begin with legs up the wall pose in order to reverse our blood flow and get fresh oxygen and energy i...

  • Head 2 Knee

    Get some amazing openness from these forward bend variations. You'll round through your body in a way that opens up the backside of your torso and neck, stretching and lenthening those muscles that have a lot of tension held up from sitting and driving for a long time. Enjoy the good neck and sho...

  • Yinny Goodness

    Feel a wonderful release on the inner hips and thighs, adding some twists in the mix to produce a peaceful final rest. Practice like this is so good I've found, at eliminating tension and stress so you can finally unwind, and it only takes 20 minutes! No sweat involved, just peace and breath!

    Really good inner and outer hip and thigh release in this one. Enjoy all the deep breaths you know we get into during these sessions. The shapes are only one aspect.
