Side Bodies and the Self

Side Bodies and the Self

This is a very gentle practice focused on the side bodies. I wanted to work with a part of the body that most of us don’t experience too many problems with so that we could really just work with observing sensation. As you move through the poses, I will add another layer to practice. Our true goal is to practice self awareness or interoception.

Wall Yin and The Matrix

Wall Yin and The Matrix

Wall Yin is by far my most requested class. It’s a sweetly intense restorative type of practice.
