This is a short practice for when you are short on time, don’t have much energy, or have a recovery day and just want some simple movement, centering and savasana to get things moving or help you feel centered.
This stronger flow class will get you moving for sure! There is also a soothing wind down and well deserved savasana. Don’t skip it! Enjoy!
This is a (30) minute flow that will get you moving if you are short on time.
Apa Japa means "breath awareness." This short guided meditation can help you begin a meditation practice or simply give you an opportunity to go inward and take a break from your day. For more tips on meditating see April's post on NJYC: Just Sit There | 10 Tips to Begin a Meditation Practice
Tune in at any time of day to align with the energetic body. Embrace the practice of OM Shanti, the mantra for clarity, peace, and inspiration.
This mindful core flow focuses on strengthening and opening the front and back body using breathwork, asana, and immersive savasana.
Sthira Sukham Asanam. "Asana is a steady easy seat." This hour long flow class is designed to help you balance the effort and ease on your mat so you can practice balancing effort and ease off your mat. Recorded at Epic Yoga DC one rainy February afternoon.
This meditative flow is perfect when you do not have a lot of time but do want to roll out your mat to connect and refocus. You can actually get a lot done in that amount of time! Within this practice, I lead you through a kriya technique I learned from my teacher. Use the mantra Sa on the inhalation and Hum on the exhalation. This will help direct your energy and bring inspiration into your day. As you practice this technique moving through the asana on your mat, you will become more focused and present in your moment. After you get used to using this tool on your mat, you can practice this anywhere during your day to help direct and focus your energy.
This hour long practice flow focuses on tapas, translated as 'discipline' or 'austerity.' We sometimes hear it means to sweat and burn impurities. In Tantra we see it as burning out patterns that do not serve us and having the dedication to our practice that will move us through our karma. This class was recorded at Vida Fitness, Verizon Center.
This very special class was recorded March 15th, 2016, during our first morning practice at Mhai Yoga In Cuba. The word of the day was “connect.” Take 90 minutes to practice with us and connect to the space within that always exists. As one of the first American yoga retreat groups there, I am so grateful to Mhai Yoga and to Cultural Contrast for helping me make this happen. We will be returning to this incredible venue in March of 2017.
