This is a live class from a summer intensive taught in July of 2016. Class begins with developmental movement warm-ups focused on waking up the side body. This warm up prepares you for the active asanas that are done in the last half of class.

Just under two hours, you may need to carve out some time on a Saturday afternoon for this one. The first hour of this class could be done alone as a gentle restorative class to wake up the torso.

Props needed: 1-2 blankets, 2 blocks

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!
