Hatha Practice 3-20-21

In this practice, we explored a wide-leg seat as an alternative to downward dog. In it, we work on both hip flexion and supporting the spine with our core. As the thumbnail suggests, we also experimented with chair pose as an opportunity to find the leg and core work of downward-facing dog without having to bear weight on our arms.

My Favorite Neck Shoulder, and Side Stretches

Feeling hunched after spending hours on Zoom? These are my favorite ways to “undo” the effects of working on my laptop all day. As I mention in the video, your mileage may vary on these and feel free to add in your own favorite movements or improvise new ones!

Bed Yoga: Handstand Practice

Bed yoga is for EVERY body. But, practicing yoga in bed can be a great way for folks to get some extra support or reduce the risk of injury from falls or exertion.
In this practice, we explore how bed yoga can be both gentle and strengthening. Just because you’re laying in bed, doesn’t mean it has to be easy. Although we won’t go upside down, this practice will help to build core strength and upper body strength as well as offer the energizing feeling for practicing and handstand!

Chair Practice: Accessible Yoga Homework

I recorded this chair practice as part of my Accessible Yoga training in June 2020. We’ll gently warm up the body working through some gentle twisting and backbend. Eventually, we’ll engage our core, building strength in our arms, abs, and legs as we practice “handstand” in a chair.
