Yoga Class Description

We can use this practice to settle our awareness into our bodies and into the moment...to get cozy within ourselves despite the outer circumstances. In this online yoga class we explore in-depth the third aspect of inner spiral - widening the upper thighs apart from each other. As we learn this action we create a profound healing in the hips and low back. This Anusara yoga practice has sun salutations and standing poses and many deep, delicious hip openers. We work towards the pose called Sundial. The practice is designed to help you settle the mind and to fully arrive feeling completely alive, aware and comfortable. (88 mins.)

Level: 2 Style: Anusara Yoga Focus: Alignment-Based Flow Yoga, Hip Opening Yoga
