Yoga & Meditation Snacks (Livestream in the zoom room)
“Yoga Snacks” are 30/45-minute targeted practices. (Not all the practices described below are offered on livestream at any given time, but they are all available on the video library.) They will always include intention setting to begin and svasana meditation to finish. Easy to fit in your day, long-lasting afterglow. If you miss the yoga snack, there will be a library of classes available for you to use at your leisure. All times posted are ET.
Easy Flow: A slow moving practice of traditional and non-traditional sun and/or moon salutations or possibly other creative combinations of poses (asanas) linking movement to breath. Always starting with setting an intention and finishing with short svasana meditation. Sample Easy Flow class on Youtube.
Yoga Basics: What are the different types of yoga? Why do we do salutations? How can we make some of the basic poses easier to access? How can we play with some common transitions? What props might make poses more accessible? How and why should we bring self-compassion to the mat? Bring a curious mind to this unique 8-week session. Full 8-week session available in the video library.
Krama HIIT: In Sanskrit the idea of progression is krama. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a cardiorespiratory workout alternating high intensity bursts of movement with slower active recovery periods. In this practice we’ll combine the idea of progressions with HIIT. Each practice will include 3-5 HIIT series. Each of these series will make use of a different intensity movement and before each series, we’ll review at least 2-4 progressions of the intensity movement so that you can find your sweet spot of challenge. Choose the progression that helps you achieve peak cardiorespiratory challenge during the HIIT work phases of each series. The concept of krama allows this cardiorespiratory practice to be fun and accessible for people of all fitness levels. Sample Krama HIIT class on Youtube.
Easy Flow with Breath & Meditation: A slow moving practice of traditional and non-traditional sun and/or moon salutations balanced with breath and meditation practice.
Gentle Hatha: A beautiful slow practice similar to the Hatha class described below with warming movement sequences that do not include salutation flows. Sample Gentle Hatha class on Youtube.
Gentle Hatha with Pranayama (Breath Practice): Gentle Hatha as described above with the final 20 minutes in pranayama practice which will include a mix of energizing and calming breath exercises.
Hatha: Any yoga class that adds movement to the traditional meditation practice of ancient yoga is really Hatha yoga. In this class we will practice a version that is commonly seen in North America in which we use a flow sequence in the early part of the practice to warm up muscles and lubricate joints, then work toward one or two peak asanas allowing you to explore more deeply where you can take your body in movement. Sample Hatha class on Youtube.

Strength Snacks (in the zoom room)
“Strength Snacks” are 30-minute workouts that maximize the relationship between time and results! We use resistance bands, hand weights, and body weight to build muscle power in your core, upper body, and lower body.
