Wind Down Your Day
Love Your Neck, Shoulders & Upper Back
A simple yoga class, perfect as a bookend as a warm up or wind down to the beginning or end of a practice, even perfect as a post-athletic stretch out, or a break during the day. With a focus on with poses that open your shoulders, hips, hamstrings and lower back. You will be doing some seated poses so if you have tender knees or ankles, I recommend having a block for under your pelvis. We use the wall in this practice, so you'll need to be near a wall as a prop. You may want a bolster for legs up the wall, our closing posture, it feels great under the pelvis, it really helps to support hamstring lengthening. You wil need a block and a belt handy.
Look Ma! No Head!
Use two blocks and a wall as a lovely, non-weight bearing headstand practice. This class is great for those of us new to headstand and looking to get the feeling, without bearing weight on the neck and shoulders. You'll feel a lovely upper back and shoulder opening, and this is a super way to introduce yourselves to a modified inversion. From the modified version, Kristin teaches you how to invert completely, if you're ready. For people who love headstand but have sensitive or injured necks, and don't want to weight-bear on their heads. Also great opening for the upper back. Intention: non-weight-bearing headstand
Tadasana: The Blueprint Pose
Finding your alignment in Tadasana is perhaps the most important yoga pose. In this yoga tutorial Kristin shows us how to find correct alignment in Tadasana, the mountain pose. Then Kristin goes on to show us how to find the same Tadasana alignment in Warrior 2, extended side angle pose, triangle pose and half moon pose including how to keep the knee protected during side angle poses. Essential watching for us all!
