Being Steady in the Unknown (#108H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

This class builds toward a fundamental arm balance called Side Plank. In this posture it is important to create alignment and integration in the shoulders and core to support your weight while simultaneously maintaining balance. More than many postures, Side Plank encourages us to accept the possibility of "falling". This possibility asks us to consider who we are when we move beyond our notions of perfection, both mentally and physically. Holding steady in a challenging situation is an important lesson in yoga.

Learning to Slow Down (#109H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

The rapid pace of modern life compromises our well-being and ages us prematurely. Yoga teaches us that the present moment is the ONLY moment. This class focuses on the slow and steady practice of hip opening and forward folds. By learning to move more mindfully into each pose, to hold the pose while focusing on the breath, and to release the pose with the same attention that created it, we slow down and cultivate a moving meditation. This leads to a nourishing experience of slow self-reflection.

Where You Look Matters (#112H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

As we age things tend to get stuck, both in our perspectives and in our bodies. In yoga, rotated poses can help get us unstuck. Twisting is beneficial for our spines and our digestion, and helps to balance our physical energy. Such poses can also change our perspective from one point of view to another as we twist. In this class we learn the basics of healthy rotations to aid in cleansing our organs, reinvigorating our spine, and refreshing our perspective - because where you look matters.

Nature and the Cycle of Creation (#203H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

When we become aware of nature, we begin to align to its rhythm, its cycles, its pulsations. As a part of nature, we can observe how our energy patterns change with the weather or the seasons. This class will culminate with an energetic pose, Wild Thing.

Opening to Self-Love (#110H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself. Until you have cultivated love for yourself, it is difficult to fully receive the love of others. We practice this in yoga by remembering our own value and worth even as we may face limitations in certain poses. We will explore the idea of self-love in this class by working toward a basic backbend, Bridge Pose, and focusing on opening our shoulders and chest...the "heart" of our bodies.

Remembrance (#113H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

To forget is part of being human. In our daily lives we often forget the big picture, we forget love is our essence, and we forget that we are all connected. Forgetting, however, provides an opportunity...to remember...to awaken. Becoming more awake is a gift. On our mats we practice remembering by awakening the various parts of our bodies and unifying them as an integrated whole. This class addresses remembrance and the integration of the body in forward folds.

Find Balance to Find Peace (#204H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Balance is a juggling act in our bodies and in our daily lives. To find balance in either requires us to embrace a true steadiness at our core. Yoga postures such as Revolved Warrior II help us find balance within the asymmetries of the body.

The Art of Connection (#111H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

The art of yoga is really the art of connection. In our practices, we connect the body to the mind; the individual to the universal; the material to the spiritual-and, in this class, the front body to the back body. In yoga terms, the front body represents our individual ego and the back body represents an experience of oneness. Therefore, when we begin a pose from the back it invites us to connect to something bigger than ourselves. Moving from the back body requires us to integrate the strength of the front body. Today, we use this connection in Snowbird and Boat pose.

Our Breath Is Our Conversation with the World (#201H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Finding Your Center (#205H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Transforming Fear Into Joy (#207H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Fear can be useful. It keeps us safe in uncertain situations, but it can just as easily block us from living fully. Through our sense of wonder, like a child, we can learn to embrace any circumstance. The arm balance called Crow can help us face our fears.
