Handstand is the New Down-Dog — GET STRONG in this fun and challenging Fearless Friday flow with many handstand opportunities. Begin seated for centering and breath awareness, and practice Abhaya Mudra (Gesture of Fearlessness) and Varada Mudra (Gesture of Gift Giving). Warm up with a few rounds of Surya Namaskara A and B, balance in Vrkshasana (Tree Pose), then incorporate more standing poses into the flow with Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose) as the transition and recovery pose. After a brief rest and transition time to move to the wall, swap out Down Dog for Adho Mukha Vrkshasana (Downward Facing Tree Pose, aka Handstand): Practice the same sequence of standing poses again, this time entering each standing pose from Handstand, then exit each standing pose into Handstand (or swap in Down Dog at any point). Please challenge yourself appropriately, rest, stay hydrated, and modify poses whenever you need to. This practice will strengthen you physically, bolster you mentally, and fortify your spirit so that you may courageously navigate the challenges and obstacles on your path. Props: mat, wall, towel.

Open Hearts, Clear Boundaries — In these difficult, scary and divisive times, it is all the more important that we practice courageously opening our hearts, within safe and appropriate boundaries. This practice of supported backbends invites you to do just that; open the front of your body and lengthen the anterior chain structures of your body, which can sometimes feel vulnerable and exposed (observe how mammals flex when they feel threatened and scared).

Use Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose), Uttanasana, and Tadasana (Mountain Pose) as neutralizing and counter poses. Enjoy an interlude to roll (smash) your calves for good times (hehe) and a self-myofascial release for the knee flexion required for Virasana, and progress through variations of Supta Virasana (Reclined Hero’s Pose) into a chair supported Kapotasana (Pigeon Pose). Props: mat, 1 or 2 blankets, 2 blocks, yoga chair, optional 2nd thin mat. Read more

Our Better Angels — In these difficult and stormy times, let us come together in this Fearless Friday class to cultivate our better angels through inquiry and movement. By appealing to to the best instincts of the human spirit in difficult times, the words of Abraham Lincoln still resonate now, “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave, to every heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” Start seated for conversation and inquiry (based on the character of Duryodhana in the Mahabharata), then progress Tadasana (Mountain Pose) interspersed with slow flow sun salutations, standing poses, and single leg balancing poses, culminating in Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana (Standing Hand on Big Toe Pose). Props: mat, blanket, block, optional chair and strap. Read more

Turn Down The Noise — This restorative Thankful Thursday practice is the “comfort food” of yoga asana, and is a potent antidote to the agitation and relentless noise of the world we live in.

Begin supine in a supported Savasana with guided relaxation and pranayama (Sahaja, Ujjayi), gently stretch your back in a supported Balasana (Child’s Pose), stretch your legs and arms in a head-supported version of Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose), practice supported Supta Baddha Konasana (Supine Bound Angle Pose), and conclude with seated meditation.

Begin by activating the deep core muscles (pelvic floor, transverse abdominis and more) in sitting, then transfer these activations into our title sponsor, Plank Pose, and add layer after layer of nuance and variation to create a strength lasagna (couldn’t resist a food metaphor) of deep core, core, shoulder girdle, upper extremity, and gluteal strengthening. This practice is not about fancy trick poses, but rather a chop_wood_carry_water investment into your ability to activate, strengthen and stabilize your low back, pelvis and shoulders in movement and poses, both on and off the mat, and to recover from and prevent low back and pelvic dysfunction.
