S18:Ep1, Commit to Your Hamstrings (Preview)
Yoga Every Day - Season 18 Episodes
Commit to Your Hamstrings
Cultivate competence with strap-supported hamstring stretches and balancing postures. Discover that wherever you are in your path, you are right on track.
Commit to Your Balance
Practice perseverance - getting back up even when you fall down - with balancing postures. Begin with a slow flow to warm up the chest, hamstrings, and hips. Then move into a balance sequence that builds up to half-moon (ardha chandrasana). Close with floor-based balancing postures and end in savasana.
Commit to Your Foundation
Adhikara (path of being a student) requires a strong foundation and an understanding of the fundamentals. Connect with your breath and get grounded through alignment principles, standing postures, lunges, folds, and twists. Incorporate breathwork and chant Om to align deeper in mind, body, and spirit.
Commit to Your Spine
Elongate all 360 degrees of your spine through twists, side body stretches, and gentle backbends.
Committed, Capable, and Competent
An invigorating practice to tune up your focus and develop confidence. Start with spinal warm-ups before entering into a heat-generating flow to strengthens the core and stabilizer muscles. Close class with floor-based twists and side-body stretches. This class can be used to stay balanced and clear during tumultuous times.
Discover the soft, fluid, juiciness of the hips in this flow that dances open any tightness in the groins and inner thighs. Tune into the feeling tone (bhavana) behind our movements.
Soft Warrior Strength
Learn how to balance power with gentleness in this flow. Includes many variations of warrior postures.
Cultivate courage and fearlessness as you explore the art of balancing poses. Start by tuning into your center in toe stand, then move into a sequence of balancing postures that feature Qigong-inspired movement and builds up to full dancer’s pose (natarajasana).
Heart of Devotion
Cultivate the bhavana (feeling) of devotion through heart-opening poses in this gentle flow.
Align with the Vibe
Bhava refers to a state of being or feeling, a vibe. While we may desire “good vibes only,” sometimes life throws us curve balls that we can’t control. What we can control is how we respond to the unexpected. In this practice, cultivate the ability to work skillfully with whatever arises. Sometimes we must be heroic (vira), other times we must be tranquil (shanti) and sometimes we need that artful balance between the two (sringara).
In this practice featuring root chakra grounding postures, you will build the sturdy foundation to showcase yourself to the world with confidence and fearlessness (abhaya).
Fearless Arm Balances
Embody abhaya (fearlessness) by pushing the edges and facing fears head on. Rather than letting our doubts talk us out of this arm-balancing practice, let’s instead ask the question: why not?
Summon the abhaya (fearlessness) of your heart with backbends and the fearless heart mudra (hand gesture).
Awaken the warrior within as you develop your sense of abhaya (fearlessness) through a balance of strength and softness in mudra (hand gesture), warrior poses, grounded hip openers, and twists.
Fearless, Strong, and Courageous
Fearlessness doesn’t mean not having fear, but is rather an invitation to explore our relationship with fear. Use focused movement and breath to call on your roots (muladhara chakra) to remember what you stand for, your center (manipura chakra) to cultivate a strong sense of self, and your heart (anahata chakra) to invoke the courage to transcend your comfort zone.
Grace in Motion
Move gracefully with your breath through a series of lunge poses and twists.
Grace in Breath
Invite deep, conscious breaths as you move through a mindful sequence of stretches, ending with guided breathing exercises. Notice how taking deep breaths illuminates the path to embodying grace.
Embody grace (anugraha) by moving on your mat. Graceful, refined movement may not come naturally to all of us, but with practice and good effort we can slowly refine how we inhabit our bodies.
Locate the divine nature of your heart while exploring the generous spirit that we live, breathe, and embody. Open your heart to grace through spinal movements, shoulder openers, grounded hip openers, heart openers, and balancing variations of half moon and sugarcane.
An Act of Grace
Eembody the fluid power of the water element with flowing movement that will liberate stuck behaviors and patterns from your mind and body. Water is a powerful muse for grace (anugraha) in that it elegantly makes its way around whatever gets in its way – it makes its obstacles part of its path. Life, in general, has a way of challenging us to rise up and respond without resisting.
