Epsiode 54: Yoga Nidra Meditation

nidra-meditation

Back by popular demand, it’s another yoga nidra class. In this 20 minute class, you will be guided through a scan of the body while resting in savasana. This form of yoga relaxation¬†has been found to reduce tension and anxiety, to help those who suffer from a scattered mind, and to heal insomnia. ¬†A focus will be placed on specific parts of the body throughout the meditation allowing the mind to concentrate on the sensations that are present. Do this class on its own for a break in your day, or as an addition at the end of an active class.

Episode 44: Steady and Stable Abdominals

This is a very playful 20 minutes to wake up your abdominals and upper body. The exercises during the first half of class are done on a thinly rolled yoga blanket or towel. This will create a less stable ground and a more challenging position for the back of the body to balance on. Your body will need to rely on the abdominals to keep you from tipping over. It should look a little something like this (but with the blanket roll underneath your spine):

Episode 20: Imagery #1 Domes

This is a 20 minute podcast with very few poses. It is the first in a series I will be doing that uses imagery to help soften tension and bring space and awareness into the body. The focus of this class is mainly on breathing, the pelvis, awareness in the spine, and feeling the expanse from head to toe. If you are feeling extra wound up today, this podcast could be a nice way to start a longer practice or a way to simply chill out and release some aggression you may be holding in the body.
