cozy & strong

be Love

March 29, 2020

We share some sweet meditative intention setting to make room for what is, and then movement begins at around 5 mins. As the practice progresses, you’ll find binds, side planks, heart opening, and chances to get upside down — all in the context of creatively sequenced, smooth flow.

Goddess Power

Embrace your powerful strength, tempering it with humility and grace in this warming flow that celebrates Goddess energy.

We still move through a heat-building flow that includes postures like forearm stand with hanumanasana, rotated half moon w/ chapasana, wheel, fallen triangle, side plank with half lotus, pigeon and king pigeon, wheel with elbows down, foot behind the head and more.… Read More “Peace”
