Grounding Meditation (with Cosmo)

For this practice, we begin by feeling our body’s connection to the ground below. I’ll invite you to soften – allow yourself to be held, supported. Slowly, we make our way into the body, feeling the breath enter to expand the chest. I invite you to feel your bones and muscles supporting you from within. And finally, we connect the external and internal with the breath.

Going Out on a Limb

Looking for some adventure in your yoga practice? This might be the one for you! I invite you to join me “out on a limb” as we explore my favorite pose: Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon).  This practice is definitely challenging, but I also think it’s accessible for most folks.

Fall into Relaxation

Have you noticed that as the days get shorter and the nights begin to cool, the plants and animals in our yards lean into rest? As Winter approaches and we should be preparing for rest, many of us are packing our schedules with Halloween parties, Thanksgiving road trips, and Christmas shopping. As life get’s busy over the next few months, I want you to remember – there is always time for rest. And I hope you’ll enjoy this 20-ish minute restorative practice on the days when you feel like you just don’t have time for yoga.

Standing Meditation

Meditation is central to my yoga practice. Especially, in weeks like this. The school year is in full swing, there’s a hurricane off the coast of my hometown, and once again, we’ve seen horrific gun violence in our country. I figured it would be nice to change the pace and place of our practice this week.

Join me on my deck for this standing meditation practice. Take time to feel yourself standing tall, strong, and balanced. Notice the breath and just be.

How to Downward Facing Dog

In this practice, we take a look at downward facing dog and break it down into its component parts: upper body and core work, and hip flexion and opening the backs of the legs. When I started practicing yoga – I hated this pose. But several years later, I’ve learned to love the challenge of downward dog. Maybe you will, too?

Balance is a Verb

In this practice, we explore balance on the mat and in our lives. We begin with a gentle asana practice. We take time to notice our connection to the Earth below us and the external support we receive through that connection. Then, we begin to notice how our body works to stabilize and support itself as we move further away from the ground. For this practice, you may need blocks, padding for the knees, or a wall or chair for support.
