So we hear there’s this Wanderlust movie coming out in a few days (you may have heard of it – some little thing with Jennifer Aniston) and if you stumbled upon us looking for the dirt on it, whoops! Sorry! But before you click away, may we interest you in a little yoga? You know, like Jen does to get that rockin’ body? Not only that, but yoga you can do at home, FREE for 15 days? Come on, you know you want to.
We’ve already talked about the killer online yoga classes now available from last year’s Wanderlust Festival, but we only highlighted a few, so we thought we’d give you the lowdown on a few more…
We’ll start with another eye-opening practice with Schuyler Grant, filmed at Wanderlust Tahoe 2011. Explore uddiyana bandha, not as an isolated ‘kriya’ but as a compliment to the traditional blend of posture and breath, as the key to moving from flow to flight in the vinyasa practice. Inversions and arm balancing will make whole body sense when initiated from ‘the flying up’ lock. Twisting and backbending take on a new level of depth and support. Don’t expect traditional ab work, but do expect to feel muscles you never knew existed.
Or how about this workshop-style class taught by Anne Marie Kramer at Wanderlust Vermont 2011? Perfect for teachers and students looking to dive deeper into the mechanics and art of hand standing, you’ll flow through vinyasas to warm up and then experiment with tricky arm balances and inversions while grooving to inspiring tunes. Anne Marie Kramer takes you step-by-step through these uplifting poses, empowering you to explore them on your own. Take your practice to new heights. Everyone has the power to take flight on and off the mat!
Finally, if you’re feeling groovy, try Lauren Hanna’s Jala Namaskar class. Created by Shiva Rea, Jala Namaskar is a fluid practice of connecting to the undulating pulse of the water element. Filmed at Wanderlust Vermont 2011, the class focuses on Sahaja (free form movement) and pulsation within the asana. It will juice you up, unlock your creativity, and allow you to dive into the spontaneous dance of your fluid body. Yum!
