Just Twist
Just Twist

Twists serve to wake us up in the morning (spinal movement stimulates the central and peripheral nervous system), as well as help boost circulation of various fluids around the body - lymph and blood for example. Twists can also help to increase elimination through the gut by providing a massaging effect for the internal organs as we move from side to side. Anticipate a fairly dynamic practice, with the option to enjoy flow, or hold static.

Side Seam
Side Seam

Bring awareness to the side, and back of your body. Anticipate some challenges in standing balancing poses, with side crunches and spinal extension. Feel how moving in this practice not only supports and stabilises the powerful structure of your spine, but gives you a sense of being open in the front body. Perfect for the beginning of the day.

Hip to be Hip
Hip to be Hip

Enjoy some creative hip mobility in this practice, along with variations on classic poses. Lean back in your Extended Side Angle to hit the front of your body and enjoy the modified sissy squats towards the end! Accessible, yet with challenges.

Strong Upper Limb
Strong Upper Limb

Enjoy this strengthening focus for our arms and shoulders, with accessible “Childs pose push-ups” as I’ve coined them ;) You’ll also train isometric techniques for bicep and chest strength, along with both pushing and pulling strength. Let the yogi in you breeze through the challenges. Despite the demanding sound of this week’s content, the sequence itself is accessible for all levels.

Flexion Chain Fire
Flexion Chain Fire

Enjoy this creative practice with the use of two blocks! This practice will strengthen your flexion chain (front of body) whilst developing more access to your hamstrings. You’ll be using the blocks on various settings to help facilitate a “plugging in” action of thigh to hip socket. Rolling hollow shapes on the ground will target flexion, lateral and extension chain tissue towards the end of practice. A fun, “core” practice where you’ll also develop straight arm pushing strength.

Joint Juice
Joint Juice

Begin with some shoulder capsule CARs (pure rotation) and spinal mobility, before enjoying balance and hip mobility. Use a tennis ball if you have one for your shoulder CARs, or anything you can grip with one hand. Please don’t fret if you don’t have one as you can practice without! Another steady, accessible practice. Hip capsule CARs and neck CARs once you're seated as we wrap up the class.

Slow Down
Slow Down

Anticipate a slow & steady practice. Moving slowly not only gives us time to savour our experience, but become more mindful in the process. We’re not just experiencing the physicality of movement, but noticing how we respond. There will be sprinkles of dynamic movement and transitions, but also longer holds, familiar shapes, and some not so familiar shapes. Strong emphasis on the spine and shoulders for this practice, with core work and hip mobility. Options as always.

Strong & Connected
Strong & Connected

Core strength and stability is the name of the game. It's a spicy one! Anticipate plenty of core work as we understand and utilise both strength and stability (which are different). The use of two blocks, a “can do” attitude, and learning how the strength in our trunk facilitates easier movement through the upper and lower limbs all feature! You’ll be connected to your centre and feel resilient for your day ahead.

Morning Wake Up
Morning Wake Up

Enjoy this fun class starting with finger CARs! One arm down dog to plank will challenge our shoulder stability as we then hit some front body core work. “Good mornings”, twisted monkey and 90/90 hip mobility will wrap up the practice. As ever, options to regress and progress depending on what you need.
