Yoga Class Description

In this online yoga class, Hala has carefully sequenced a practice that will bring healing energy to the spine or sushumna. Start with seated twists to warm up the sushumna, including both the vertical sushumna and the snaking spirals of energy around the sushumna, Ida and Pingala. You will move through a series of abs to warm up, followed by therapeutic twists. Attention is placed on feeling grounded in your legs and long in your spine, which will allow for openness and flexibility needed for the twists. Throughout the standing sequence, Hala offers restorative modifications as well as challenging twists, such as parivrtta ardha chandrasana (revolved half moon balance). A series of backbends and hip openers, including double pigeon, lead to a relaxing savasana. Music courtesy of Philip Steir. (82 mins.)

A good, mellow class. Solid instruction with nice music.



Hala Khouri

Hala Khouri, M.A., E-RYT, has been teaching the movement arts for over 20 years. Her roots are in Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, dance, somatic psychology, and the juicy mystery of life itself. Creative movement and honest self-exploration have always been a source of tremendous healing for Hala, and her calling to share this with others has been clear to her since she began teaching at the age of 16. Hala earned her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Religion from Columbia University and has a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She wrote her thesis on using yoga and other complementary disciplines, such as eco-psychology and somatics for self-empowerment, to inspire a global shift towards peaceful and sustainable living. Hala is also one of the creators of Off the Mat, Into the World, along with Seane Corn and Suzanne Sterling, a yoga and activism initiative that aims to get yogis to take their practice outside of the yoga studio and to touch the lives of others. Hala has taught yoga and the movement arts to a wide variety of people ranging from schizophrenics and at-risk youth to mommies and rock stars. Teaching is her absolutely favorite thing to do! She currently lives in Venice, CA with her husband Paul and their two sons. To learn more about Hala, please visit her website at www.halakhouri.com.
