  • Discover Your Inner Wisdom

    “Each man's life represents a road toward himself, an attempt at such a road, the intimation of a path...But each of us - experiments of the depths - strives toward his own destiny. We can understand one another; but each of us is able to interpret himself to himself alone.”

    ~Hermann Hesse~

    corpse pose Savasana by Robert Sturman Photography

    Yoga is all about aligning with your inner wisdom and revealing your true self. The revelation of your true self is a process unique to you. As Hesse imparts, the road to your self is uniquely yours. Sure, you travel on your own road, but it’s only natural to imitate other paths, experimenting with new depths. One such path is the yoga path – a unifying path that integrates breath and movement to help you, ultimately, reach your true self.

    Experiment with the path now. Shift your focus within and travel to new depths in Cristi Christensen’s new online yoga class filmed at Exhale Spa: Live Music Slow Flow for Inner Wisdom. 

    In this online yoga video, you will gently wake up the spine before moving into a beautiful Sun Salutation flow following your own breath, aligning with your own internal rhythm, and flowing to the hypnotic, live musical vibes provided by Christopher Hawley. Practice a core activation sequence followed by a standing sequence that ends with hamstring openers, including hanumanasana and the arm balance, eka pada koundinyasana II. End this online yoga experience with seated forward folds and an opportunity to practice alternate nostril breathing before settling into a deep savasana. (83 mins.)
