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!

My Favorite Hip Stretches

All this sitting around is wreaking havoc on my already tight hips. In this practice, I share some of my favorite movements to release my quads and open my hips.

How to Cat/Cow

In this video, I review the cat/cow flow and discuss the benefits of the sequence. We also explore different ways to adapt these poses based on your body’s needs on any given day. Specifically, I demonstrate how to support and protect your knees and wrists when practicing on the mat. I also show how you can practice cat/cow while seated in a chair or on the floor.

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.

Flow + Restore

In this practice, we begin standing and then move through some half-sun salutations. Afterward, we move through some lunges and half-splits to open the hips and backs of the legs. For standing poses, we have Warrior 1 and Warrior 2. About 35 minutes in, we switch gears and move to the floor for some gentle restorative work.

You’re Doing the Best that You Can

This practice is a little different from others. It’s a recording of a live practice I offered via Facebook for Downtown Yoga. It’s about 57 minutes long and is somewhat vigorous as we work on Sun Salutation A and the process of “stepping to the top of the mat” from downward facing dog.

Release Tension with Yoga and Self-Massage

We’re all a little stressed out right now, myself included. I hope you enjoy this mix of yoga and self-massage to help release stress and tension in the neck, jaw, and shoulders.
It may help to have a chair and strap available for this practice. The chair is especially helpful if you’re like me and sitting cross-legged isn’t fun.
