Yoga for Better Sleep
Unwind at the end of your day with a relaxing yoga practice. This sequence will release some of the tension out of your legs, hips, and lower back. Practice it whenever you need a little help calming and quieting the mind.
Awaken the Core Part 1
In a few simple movements, you'll learn how to feel and engage the muscles that make up the "core", including the inner thighs (adductors), iliopsoas (hip flexors), and transversus abdominis (innermost abdominal muscles). A strong core supports movement in your whole body, making you feel lighter with less tension and strain elsewhere in the body.
This practice starts with small and gentle movements in sync with the breath including pelvic tilts and leg lifts to get acquainted with your core.
Awaken the Core Part 2
Building on Part 1, this yoga practice is a slightly more challenging series to help further strengthen the muscles of the core (especially the inner thighs and deep abdominal muscles). Using your core is also warming, so you'll likely feel the heat and get a bit sweaty with this practice.
Gentle Flow Yoga for a Supple Spine
This gentle flowing class loosens up your back with forward bends, backbends, side stretches, and twists. You'll move slowly from one pose to the next in rhythm with your breath to find more fluidity and softness in the body.
Hip and Hamstring Stretches
This reclining series of stretches is beneficial for everyone. You'll safely stretch the backs of your legs, hips, inner thighs, and lower back. If any of these areas in your body feel tight, you'll feel better after doing this series. An excellent way for runners and athletes to stay limber and supple in the areas that tend to seize up with intense workouts.
Energizing Standing Practice
A standing yoga practice to help energize you and strengthen the legs while opening the hips. Suitable for beginners as well as experienced yoga practitioners.
Chair Yoga for the Upper Body
When you sit (or, more accurately, slouch) for long periods of time, the muscles in your back weaken, while the muscles in your chest and shoulders get tighter.
This short Chair Yoga sequence stretches the tight muscles in the front of your chest and shoulders, and helps strengthen the muscles in your upper and middle back. Practiced regularly, you'll notice an improvement in your sitting posture, with more openness across the chest and greater length in the spine.
Chair Yoga for the Lower Body
This Yoga practice done while sitting in a chair strengthens the legs, abdominal muscles, and lower back, and stretches the hips and hamstrings. Gentle enough for seniors and people with arthritis or limited mobility, and yet a good energizer for an afternoon pick-me-up at your desk!
How to Sit Better
We sit for most of our waking hours--at the kitchen table, a desk, in a car, or on the couch. The way we sit can lead to pain and tension in the neck, back, and shoulders.
With this video, explore how the movement of your pelvis changes the shape of your spine. Many of us sit with our spines rounded in a 'C' curve. Learn how to position your pelvis to find the natural curves of your spine and help alleviate any compression in the lower back, chest, and neck.
