  • Happy Hamstrings41:21
    Happy Hamstrings

    Mollie McClelland Morris

    This class focuses on exploring the range of hamstring movements, so we don’t overstretch the hamstrings, but instead hydrate, nourish and expand into our own potential. Expand to work your hamstrings in their full range, and remember, when stretching it’s healthy to move at between 60-80% of your potential. A really great class for all of us who are tight in the legs from everyday life. Mostly wrist-free. You will need a ball and an elastic theraband, if you one.

  • Cultivating Our Inner Light42:26
    Cultivating Our Inner Light

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    A beautiful flow to open the heart, warm the back and still the mind. In the Yoga Sutra, the busy mind is described as quieting down through a number of ways: lengthening the breath, concentration on objects, or on experiences in deep sleep or dream states. It is also suggested that the mind can be quieted by concentration on the ever-present source of light that is believed to dwell inside the human heart. This light grows brighter when we do practices – like polishing a jewel that begins to shine and reflects the light all around it. We’ll look at ways to work with sunlight and moonlight in this fluid vinyasa-based sequence, and help awaken the source of light within each of us.
