Sometimes you can’t choose which class to take. Why not own them all?
With this package you can enjoy full body love by owning the first 9 of our digital Not Your Normal Yoga Classes. From your head to your toes, each class focuses on a particular joint or motion to help you find full body movement ease.
Have you ever had a yoga teacher yell at you because your feet weren’t in the right place for the pose? I have and my version felt better to my body than what they wanted me to do.
This class breaks free of the yoga rules to encourage you to find your foot positioning for the yoga poses that feel best for you. It’s called a yoga practice to empower you to take ownership. That includes where your feet are and what they are doing.
Whenever our hands are on the ground they become part of our base, our foundation. Frequently, I have students who complain about wrist pain in Plank or Downward Facing Dog or shoulder pain in Chaturanga. Where and how your hands are placed will change the poses.
In a yoga flow, we will play around with different hand positions to help you discover what works best for your body. This can help improve your yoga practice while reducing wear and tear on your shoulder and wrist joints.
I’ve been spending too much time watching my cats and the way they can move their spine. I wish I could curl up in a small ball like them!
This class is like adding WD-40 to your spine. We’ll move and twist in different ways to help discover and release the sticky points of your back. Find out how hip rotation can affect your shoulders and vice versa.
Our feet are our foundation, but we tend to just shove them in shoes and paint the nails. When we have healthy feet and ankles, we can improve our balance and reduce knee issues.
In this class, we will manipulate our toes and ankles to improve the brain to body connection. (It may require a Jedi mind trick to help. 😉) Notice how yoga postures feel after we’ve woken up our base.
This class is suitable for those with Plantar Fasciitis, as many of the moves can help release the tension.
“I feel like I just had a hip replacement.” That is what one of our students said after this class and it has become one of our most requested classes.
Pigeon Pose is a popular pose, especially when we talk about hip opening. What we’re really aiming to achieve is improving our hip mobility by increasing our range of motion (flexibility) and strength. By having that extra control in our hips, they feel so much freer.
Every move in this class is included to give you the best Pigeon Pose of your life.
“My hamstrings are so tight! I need to stretch them!” How often do you say that?
What if you don’t need to stretch them, but use them?
In this class we combine a stretch with muscle activation to help you discover a new range of motion. We tend to forget that there are three muscles that compose the hamstring group and four muscles for the quadriceps. Uncover which muscles and angles need a bit more love and attention, while (re)teaching your lengthened muscles how to contract in order to reduce tension. Yeah, it sounds weird, but give it a try.
Pretty much every yoga pose requires the hips to externally or internally rotate. One of the reasons why I quit ballet was because I never had good turnout (external rotation) just like the dancer in Centerstage. Though really I had no hope of ever being a professional.
Being able to control and improve the rotation we have in our hips will help to discover our own versions of yoga postures. If you only have a certain amount of internal rotation, your Warrior 1 will look different than someone who has more.
By finding the end ranges and improving our strength at those points, we may be able to “deepen” the pose. (Quotes as deeper is relative.)
Grab some socks and to slide our way into asanas, while opening your hips.
Years of swimming and poor seated posture has my shoulders immensely tight. If you always feel like you’re moving toward a Hunchback, this class will help.
Moving toward Dolphin Pose, the shoulder will be worked in every range of motion with a focus on shoulder flexion. Seeing as the shoulder is one of the most moveable joints we have, there are quite a few exercises to increase strength and mobility.
A Yoga Flow breaks up the shoulder work and gives the rest of the body a stretch.
See how much taller you stand when you finish!
The Circle is a magical shape with no beginning or end. When we move a joint in circles our brain is activated in ways that isn’t when we move linearly.
Our Shoulders can produce the biggest circles and when we move in circumduction we can awaken sleepy muscles.
In this class, we will bring in shoulder circles in different body positions to change the force of gravity. This will improve our control and mobility, while encouraging our shoulders to feel more open.
