    What people are saying.

    • "Great incorporation of twists into challenging static strength poses and dynamic flow--very unique approach that condenses so much into each movement. I love this class because while it may only be 60 minutes, you feel as though you've done a full 90-minute sequence because of the way she's managed to bundle such multi-dimensional focus into each part of the sequence. What can I say but give us more! In the meantime, this goes great paired with the half-hour ab/back sequence also from i.am.you."
    • "This is one of my favorite classes. I really like (love) how Lauren teaches; clear instruction and the flow is soooo great, I am a sweaty awesome mess whenI'm done. Thanks Lauren, from Calif."
    • "this class is killer! super good cardio workout plus great twisting"
    • "perfect blend, speed and esprit. More classes by Lauren, please. Lissi, Copenhagen, Denmark"
    • "Obsessed!"

    Got core?

    Join Cristi Christensen for core-activation exercises followed by Sun Salutations with core-engagement in mind. In this online yoga class, you will open the pelvis with a standing sequence with long holds in Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II), side angle pose (parsvakonasana), and half moon pose (ardha chandrasana). Practice dolphin pose or forearm balance (pincha mayurasana) followed by a forearm plank series. Get into the shoulders with a great shoulder opener and some fun variations on wheel pose (urdhva dhanurasana) with blocks. Cool down with reclining twists and savasana. (90 mins.)

    Cyclist or chronic chair sitter?

    Then Sage Rountree’s new online yoga video is for you! In this yoga video for cyclists (and chair sitters), you will work gently to open the front of the body and strengthen the back. Enjoy a focus on hips and shoulders while balancing strength and flexibility. Alternate between spinal extension exercises to work the core and lunges to release the hips. Finish with a deep relaxation. (56 mins.)

    Short on time?

    Join Gigi Yogini for a quick, full body activation sequence to build heat and work in a great stretch! Open your hips and quadriceps as well as your shoulders and heart.

    Awaken your intuition.

    This class is designed to awaken your intuition and make you feel happy! In this online yoga kundalini set, you will work the pituitary gland, which is the center of intuition. When the pituitary gland secretes, the nectar is said to raise your intuition and open the door to the Infinite. This meditation (Smiling Buddha Kriya) is said to have been practiced by both Jesus and the Buddha, and it is a very ancient mudra of peace. Resonate the four primal sounds Sa Ta Na Ma meaning Infinity, Life, Death, and Rebirth to connect with the whole cycle of life. This meditation is also good for connecting with the positive mind and taking care of depression. (88 mins.)

    Treat your upper body.

(29 mins.)

     

    Unwind the tightness.

    • In Sage Rountree's short yoga for athletes (specifically swimmers) class and anyone, you will cultivate flexibility in the areas that can get tight from swimming: shoulders, chest, hips, and ankles.
