ABOUT THE SUBSCRIPTION:
I began teaching from my living room in response to the unfortunate covid crisis in March of 2020. What began as a simple way to keep me sane is now big beautiful community.
Most classes have been filmed from living room. When you subscribe you will have instant access to a huge library of pre-recorded classes. You will also be emailed a Zoom meeting invite to attend LIVE STREAMING classes – real vibes are loved too! To decrease clogging your inbox with daily messages, the daily classes you miss will be uploaded here as well. Please note: I will be taking August off of live streaming but will return September 1st, from 9-1030am (PST) daily. In the meantime, choose from this huge library of classes for all levels ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. There is some newer, professionally filmed content as well.
If you join LIVE, we begin with high quality breath work/pranayama for the first thirty minutes followed by sixty minutes of therapeutic/often sweaty asana – all from my humble abode! (Sub-par cinematography, good company;). If you miss the LIVE, I will be posting them to this site as well so you’ll constantly have fresh content!
Who is this for? Anyone! The library gives you access to a wide range of classes 30 – 90 minutes in length: a) breath-only b) restorative c) asana and advanced. Most classes are safe for beginners, but please note that they aren’t for raw beginners – however, there is one special beginners/foundation course for newbies. Live streaming as of September 1st begins 9-930am (PST) pranayama (breath work) and 930-1030am (PST) asana (practice) * Please note, I will be time off all of August to see my family…*
What if I can’t make it LIVE? Classes will be recorded and uploaded daily if you seek fresh content! (Beginning Sept 1st – see above).
What do you need for a home practice? a) Have a clear WIFI connection. b) Ideally have a clean, quiet space to practice from. c) A yoga mat, ideally a block (grab a thick book if need be) a strap (or a towel/tie/tshirt) and a flat pillow for sitting or sensitive knees.
What is pranayama? Breath work. We do basic pranayama as well as Kundalini Kriyas (or sets of breath exercise in combination with either movement/mantra). The daily class begins this way for the first 30 min. You can choose to do just this practice on its own, some students enjoy this – and then carry on into meditation or you can stay through the entire practice. Be open minded when first trying this as it can be weird, for sure!
In advance, pranayama can be extremely helping in creating ease and space in the body. However, some common contraindications as pranayama changes the pressure in your body: Pregnancy and first three months especially (avoid uddiyana bandha, kapalabhati, bhastrika – anything vigorous on the belly) anxiety and those prone to panic attacks – some of the same intense breathing can trigger those already in an anxious state (while for others it may help them pending on severity of anxiousness/disassociation) heart conditions, those prone to seizures, concussions/head/neck injuries – again pending on timing and severity, glaucoma/sinus/ear issues, high blood pressure, low blood pressure – for low the common side effect may be dizziness or faintness, recent abdominal surgery, hernia, ulcer, cysts, women postpartum – be mindful of breath that irritates the affected area.
What if I’m injured for the asana portion? Let me know in advance and I may have some insights. But like all physical activity speak with your doctor or use your own discretion and intuition when it comes to conditions, injuries etc.
Can I share or record the classes? You have the first three days free when you sign up! The classes are available 24-7 and downloadable workshops will available for purchase. To share with friends, let them know they can sign up too with the first three days as a trial upon subscribing.
* Unlike my last system, you can begin and cancel anytime – however, the first payment will not be refunded or if you go past your month renewal.*
