Ashtanga is a very dynamic and athletic form of hatha yoga, made up of six series or levels, with a fixed order of postures. It is rooted in vinyasa, the flowing movements between postures, with a focus on energy and breath. While it is a very physical practice, it also promotes mental clarity and inner peace.
In this online Hatha yoga class, postures are practised to align, strengthen, and promote flexibility in the body. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Although that may sound easy, HATHA yoga classes require a focus and determination to hold postures longer and develop strength behind the poses so that you don’t just sink into a posture but develop the strength behind the pose.
By developing muscle engagement, while in a Hatha yoga pose, you can learn to safely find deeper options so that you don’t stress joints and lead yourself to potential injury. If you are looking for something a little different, then this style of class is for you.
We are blessed with such a rich history and multitude of yoga asanas, that some of them can be enigmatic or don’t fit into the regular flow of a POWER or VINYASA class. These online hatha yoga classes explore and shed light on these asanas so that they can move from “what the…” to amazing!
“Open” hips are important for yogis, and for good reason: Maintaining flexibility and stability in the hip joints is crucial for lower-back health, not to mention for cultivating overall freedom and ease in our bodies.
Hip openers bring release in many areas that are tight and bring a sense of release to your body and to your mind!
Tight hips are one of the most common conditions in the Western Culture. This is due in large part to the fact that we sit in chairs for long periods of time, and because we generally do not sit in hip opening positions like a squat very often, if ever.
Tight hips can lead to a whole host of issues like lower back pain, misalignments in the spine, and can even lead to injury. The hip joints are actually very unique joints, known as ball and socket joints. This allows for a much greater range of motion than say the elbow joint or the knee joint.
Tight hips affect everything from your ability to get into a difficult pose like the Wheel Pose to simply being able to pick up something off the floor.
When your hips are very tight, they increase the load and cause that you start to overuse your spine.
In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well.
But your hips are as well a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives.
Hip-opening can also create room for new ideas to come up and new pathways.
Opening the hips gives us access to freedom in the body and in our own unique expression — creatively, physically, sexually, and spiritually.
Interesting is that you can see your entire practice of yoga as a big hip-opening opportunity.
As there are over 20 muscles that cross the hip (the collection of inner thigh muscles known as the adductors, the collection of outer thigh muscles known as the abductors, the hip flexors in front, deep lateral rotators in back, and more), so any movement that stretches any of these muscles could be considered a “hip-opener.“
Therefore you could say that almost all poses are effectively a “hip-opener.”
There are many benefits to forward bends, both standing and sitting.
The forward bend asanas or postures have a massaging action on the organs in the upper body. Forward bends open up your back, promote total exhalation of air from the lungs by compressing the chest and also help to calm down your mind. The forward bending asanas or postures bend the back to the shape it was when the body was in the womb (called the primary curve). This makes some space between the spinal vertebrae improving circulation around it. The nerves from all the different organs in the body pass through the spinal cord. Creating length and space in the spine counteracts compression and bending forward to look inward can promote introspection.
The forward bend poses give an internal massage as well as they improve the circulation to the various organs like the abdomen, pancreas, liver, intestines and kidneys. They also help to lengthen and strengthen the hamstrings, the inner leg muscles, make the back muscles more supple and boost leg and knee strength. Forward bend poses help balance the air in the body. This has beneficial effects on digestion, body temperature, menstruation, childbirth, etc.
Yet forward bends can also be a challenge to many people, especially those with tight hamstrings. Common physical conditions, such as overstretched back muscles and rounded shoulders (most likely from sitting in front of a computer for hours) can be improved with forward bending poses. Yoga can help us dissolve patterns helping us to discover new ease in our forward bends.
Forward bends are not about how deep you can go but rather how deeply you can release. There’s no need to struggle, or force the body to get into a position it’s not ready for. Instead, surrender to the present moment, notice the experience, and settle into the breath.

Doing yoga in the office can be fun, innovative and relaxing with many long term benefits.

One major problem with backbends that most of us have experienced at some point is a sore lower back. Backbend-induced lumbar pain is the result of following the path of least resistance. Concentrating your backbends in the lumbar spine is simply the easiest thing to do. However, it’s neither the healthiest, nor the most effective path. If you want to deepen your backbends while keeping your lumbar spine safe, you really want to learn how to open your upper back while limiting the arch in the lower back. A great side benefit of this work is that it also teaches you how to reduce hyperkyphosis (the dowager’s hump or hunchback) and its associated physical and mental health issues. These include heart and lung disease and depression, anxiety, and chronic stress.
During workshop, we will break down the common elements of a vinyasa yoga class and teach you the primary yoga poses you will practice during a yoga class.
Are you new to yoga? Great! This is the perfect workshop for you.
During this workshop, we will break down the common elements of a vinyasa yoga class, introduce the fundamental principles of alignment, and teach you the primary yoga poses you will practice during a class.
Students will be introduced to common yoga postures through step-by-step verbal description, demonstration, and practice with an emphasis on safety, and stability within each pose.
During this workshop, these poses will be linked together into a gentle flowing sequence. Come to learn, play, and maybe even break a sweat in a supportive environment. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes; you just have to be willing to try.
In this workshop, we will explore the facts of spinal rotation in our poses. Whether a beginner or working towards advanced postures- you can grow from where you are in your practice. Seated and reclined twists & sidebends are soothing to your soul, as well as your muscles and organs while standing/arm balancing twists require leg strength, balance and stamina. Benefits include improved digestive functions, stimulated circulation, spine mobility, distressing the mind and reducing low back soreness.
When our muscles and surrounding tissues near the spine become stiff over time, we experience decreased range of motion and in some cases, discomfort and injury. Using abdominal efforts in twists while bringing space between the vertebrae are beneficial to relieving low back pain. Twisting & sidebends can help to move stagnated impurities through your digestive tract from the compression, allowing fresh oxygen and nutrients to your digestive organs- a natural detox! Not only does it detox the physical body, twisting with a healthy spine in mind enables you to be more aware of the body- mind connection to renew and fine-tune the spirit.
