Episode 51: Tech Antidote

1

It’s been over a year since I have posted a podcast. I’m very happy to share this first Tech-antidote class with you. This class is not just for the imbalances you may be finding in your body, but also the mental fatigue, the brain fog, and the emotional rollercoaster that being connected online for hours can do to the whole self. A contemplative practice is such a crucial part of our work-life-stress balance. Managing your stress is a huge step towards good health. I hope this episode and all the past podcasts help to keep you balanced, healthy, and happy.

Props needed: One Block

Episode 33- Live Slow Flow class- a mixed level practice with dhanurasana & parvrtta janu sirsanasa

This is a live mixed level class. Grab and block and a blanket for class.

Two of my favorite poses in this class are dhanurasana and parvrtta janu sirsasana. We work up into dhanurasana (bow pose) with a blanket rolled up underneath the lower belly. This prop supports the lower back so that you can more easily move the weight more to your legs rather than having all of the weight on your belly. After dhanurasana we will take seated twist ardha matsyendrasana right into side bend parvrtta janu sirsasana. These three poses done towards the end of class are a great sequence to help stimulate the abdominal organs, especially the liver and the kidneys.

Enjoy!

Episode 32: 90 minute slow flow: Wrist-happy!

This is a 90 minute class without any down dog or poses that require weight bearing on the wrists and hands. This class is great for anyone because of it’s focus on opening up the upper back and keeping an open posture in the chest. This relieves any pinching or stress that occurs in the shoulders, arms, and wrists from poor posture.

You will need two blocks, a strap, and a blanket or towel. (also have two ice packs ready for savasana if you have inflammation in your wrists).

Some of the poses we will move through include:

ardha salamba sirsasana- half headstand/headstand prep

utkatasana- chair pose

virabadrasa III- warrior III

garudasana- eagle pose

malasana- garland pose

ardha matsyendrasana- half lord of the fishes pose

gomukasana- cow’s face pose
