  • Weekend Intention: Kick-Start Your Spring

    The Spring Equinox finally turned up (Hallelujah!) and now it’s time to mentally and physically get on board with the season.

    Warrior I

    Spring is a time of new beginnings, new awakenings, new life, new blooms, and new energy. It only makes sense to follow suit and shift with the season - to reawaken and renew your mental, emotional, and physical bodies.

    To greet spring and gear up for the not-so-distant summer, practice these 5 energetically uplifting, strengthening, cleansing, and sweat-stimulating yoga videos:

    New Beginnings Slow Flow with Cristi Christensen

    Celebrate the end of the winter cycle and the awakening of spring in this online yoga class filmed at Exhale Spa. Start with a seated meditation and movements to clear out the spine. A standing sequence will be followed by core work to burn off negativity and limiting self-beliefs. Enjoy standing balances, side crow, and an opportunity for self-expression and backbends. Lastly, settle into a blissful savasana. (88 mins.)

    Xen Strength Yoga: Intense Core & Detoxifying Twists with Danielle Diamond

    Intense core moves deliver balance training, functional fitness, and a slimming detox/twist routine in this online yoga with weights class. Get an intense calorie burn without sacrificing precise alignment and all of the benefits of yoga that you love. Sculpt, lengthen, and challenge every muscle group in this playful, online Vinyasa flow. (20 mins.)

    Xen Strength Yoga: Lower Body Focused Routine with Danielle Diamond

    Melt inches off the glutes, get the rear in gear, and lengthen and tone the legs in this challenging online yoga with weights class. Follow up this unique Vinyasa experience with a restorative cool down. (28 mins.)

    Triceps Toner with Desi Bartlett

    In this free online yoga video, run-through a simple side plank series to get the triceps toned and taut for tank top weather.

    Hanumanasana! Post Workout Stretch & Cool Down with Joan Hyman

    To counter-balance all of the elevated physical and mental stimulation of the season, practice a restorative online yoga sequence designed as a cool down for runners, hikers, or any athlete. Wind down from intense activity and stretch out the hips, hamstrings, and psoas muscles to work into Hanumanasana (full splits). (31 mins.)

    ***

    Don’t put off your emotional and physical spring-cleaning. Do yoga to awaken your mind, release emotional toxicity and stagnation, and feel a sense of lightness. Do yoga to render your body healthy, vibrant, and beach-ready.

    Spring into gear with yoga!

  • Weekend Intention: Try Something Fresh

    Hit a plateau in your practice? Feeling bored? Lookin’ to spice things up a bit? Up the ante? We just may have the thing for you. Listen up.

    We are very pleased to have recently partnered with Xen Strength Yoga Founder, Danielle Diamond.

    You might be wondering: What the heck is Xen Strength Yoga?

    Xen Strength is yoga with a little extra somethin’, somethin’. What kind of somethin'? Weights. Interesting, right? It’s definitely fresh. It’s definitely a kick in the butt.

    Xen Strength Yoga with Weights

    For over fifteen years, Danielle has been teaching this strong, unique Vinyasa flow that focuses on alignment and breath to open the body through a creative, transformational sequence. As a fusion of Vinyasa flow with light hand weights, Danielle’s Xen Strength Yoga program offers a modern twist on yoga. These action-packed classes are designed to boost confidence, provide a total-body workout, enhance strength and endurance, and support meaningful results, including a stronger yoga practice.

    Danielle has been described as one of a kind. Bobbi Brown, Founder and CEO of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, describes her uniqueness fittingly: 

    “She lights up a room and has great energy which is incredibly infectious. Her classes are terrific and her new technique incorporating weights with yoga is genius. She is the perfect combination of both tough and gentle.”

    Why YogaVibes?

    "I'm excited about this opportunity to partner with YogaVibes to share my Xen Strength Yoga with Weights classes online,” say Danielle. “I personally love to practice at home, and this is the perfect way to bring my method to students who don't live near a certified Xen Strength teacher."

    We are equally as excited to share Danielle’s special method and offer students around the world the ability to practice Xen Strength Yoga with Weights at home.

    Yoga with Weights

    To get a taste of this fresh style of yoga, check out Danielle’s newest online yoga video: Xen Strength Cardio Challenge.

    In this online yoga with weights class, be prepared to work hard and honor proper alignment. Incorporate light weights into a playful online Vinyasa yoga class to experience a cardio challenge that will sculpt, lengthen, and work every muscle group while burning lots of calories! Grab a pair of light weights (3-5 pounds) and get ready to sweat. (41 mins.)

    We’ll be launching more Xen Strength Yoga videos with Danielle soon. Stay tuned!
