Series Channel Episode Title Air Date Episode Description
Yoga In Practice CREATE Stand In Your Light January 11, 2020 5:30 am Episode two focuses on the principles of how to create a stable foundation with your hands and feet. Just like the foundation of a house, the foundation of each pose needs to be balanced and evenly grounded to provide a strong support for the rest of your body. Feeling this support in the body cultivates a sense of inner strength and joy. Learning to align the basic poses of Downward Dog and Warrior I starts with this foundation.
Yoga In Practice CREATE Cultivating Confidence January 18, 2020 5:30 am Learning to trust yourself and to be authentically "you" is one of the greatest lessons that yoga provides. As one of Stacey's mentors likes to say, "Yoga is the art of getting good at being yourself." In this episode we learn to engage our muscles in standing poses, which allows us to "take a confident stance" and has a calming effect on our nervous systems. We focus on two key standing poses, Warrior II and Side Angle Pose.
Yoga In Practice CREATE Fearlessly Open Your Heart January 25, 2020 5:30 am The French word for heart, coeur, is the root for the English word courage. When we practice courageously and focus on expanding our hearts, we leave class less fearful and hopefully more loving. Physically, we can experience this opening of the heart by aligning our shoulders and engaging our upper backs, which together, expands the chest. In this class we concentrate on poses that integrate the upper body, front and back...plank, yoga push-up, and cobra. You will need two blocks.
Yoga In Practice CREATE Steadiness and Freedom February 1, 2020 5:30 am Everything in life pulses in a pattern of dualities...birth and death, day and night, yes and no. On our yoga mats the primary relationship we work with is between contraction and expansion. In poses, we contract muscles to find steadiness while simultaneously expanding through our bones to experience freedom. Understanding this pulsation within our body helps manage the inevitable ups and downs of life. Today's class explores this connection in Triangle Pose.
Yoga In Practice CREATE Learning to Do Just Enough February 8, 2020 5:30 am In Sanskrit, the original language of yoga, the word for beauty is alamkara which roughly translates as "doing just enough." This concept is important in both our yoga practice and in our daily lives. Over-doing often leads to stress, burnout, or injury. On the other hand, under-doing means we haven't fulfilled our potential, and can lead to feeling unworthy or dissatisfied. In this class we explore what 100 percent or fullness means on any given day and for any given pose, while focusing on Revolved Triangle Pose.
Yoga In Practice CREATE Shining Brightly February 15, 2020 5:30 am Like a flower, in order to grow and expand, we must be solidly grounded. What this means in yoga is that in order to shine and fully delight in the pose, one must root down first. In today's practice we explore the balance between staying actively engaged, or grounded, and extending upward and outward in Half Moon Pose. The sense of freedom found when we expand in any pose, both physically and mentally, encourages us to enjoy the fullness of the moment.
