  • Class Review: Core Flow to Bhujapidasana with Sarah Ezrin

    The deets.

    Filming Location: Los Angeles, California Style: Vinyasa Slow Flow Length: 47 minutes Intensity: Level 2 = Moderate Intensity Focus: Arm Balances, Core, Alignment-Based Props: Block + Blanket Recommended Average Rating: 5/5

    On the teacher.

    Sarah Ezrin delivers what I’m going to call a “subtle a** kick.” Her Vinyasa flows, though slow moving and incredibly mindful, are surprisingly challenging. Plus, she’s an alignment-cuing queen. Her stellar and precise instructions, combined with her intelligent sequencing, will allow you to work into postures with greater depth and awareness.

    On the class.

    • A Plank Party. True to its name, this class is heavy on the core work. Get prepared to plug in the belly and settle into lots of plank holds.
    • Shoulder Snuggling Action. Spoiler alert: The peak pose of this Vinyasa slow flow is Bhujapidasana, which translates as shoulder pressing pose. Don’t worry. Before you reach the summit, you’ll do some preparative training to make this arm balancing asana more accessible. If you can’t reach the summit today, there are still places you can work and play.
    • Slow Your Roll. This class is an opportunity to slooooow down. This doesn’t, however, make this experience any easier than a fast moving Vinyasa class. In fact, in many ways, it ups the intensity. Expect to really settle into poses, deeply connect to your breath, and sustain longer holds to build your endurance.
    • Instruction Heavy. Expect lots of awesome cues and options for various modifications on more advanced poses. There’s a lot to absorb in this class, which is why I recommend practicing it more than once. It really sets the stage for solid alignment and proper core engagement.

    Know Your Bounds.

    Lunge Twist

    • Learn Your Limits with Sage Rountree // In this online yoga for athletes class (and everyone!), work on learning where your limits are, and what might cause them. Along the way, develop the wisdom to discern between what you can control and what you cannot. Start with an innovative belly-down sequence to work the spine, hips, and shoulders. Then, move to a surprisingly tough sit-to-stand-to-sit exercise. Assess the range of motion in your hips in standing balance poses, then release your hips deeply in lunges on the floor. Finally, practice surrender in a resting position appropriate to your body's unique needs. (74 mins.)

    What people are saying.

    • “I've never had a class with Joan in person, but I've had bazillions with Jeanne Heileman and she has always spoken highly and fondly of Joan, so I thought, "why not gives this class a try?" I'm a stay at home dad and sometimes only have small snippets of time so a 30 odd minute class sounded great. And Joan did not disappoint. You get a nice little all around practice here and feel like you've probed the depths in a good way. And it's definitely a "pick me up"! I think Joan may have intended this as a way to get going in the morning, but I practiced it in the evening of one of those logy Sundays where my kids had worn me out and I just couldn't get going. This did the trick! Thank you Joan!” ~Eric O.
    • "Ahhhh, thank you Joan! Missing our great two-hour practices but this is a whole lot more do-able these days, and it was just what I needed. Cleared a lot of those cobwebs right out. I'll be seeing you again tonight for a pre-sleep wind-down! Would love to see more of these shorter practices... for those days when a little is better than nothing!" ~Anne F.
    • "Perfect pick me up and centering after a busy day!" ~Emily W.
    • "Great way to start the day! Thanks, Joan!" ~Kendra M.
    • "This is a lovely class. It's well paced and packs a lot of good movement into the 35 minutes. I feel energized, a lot less sluggish than I did beforehand, and more relaxed all at the same time." ~Elana M.
