Online Classes

The world is shifting. My world. Your world. All of it. As it always is, it’s unclear what will stay and what will burn away, what will crumble and what will stand. As I it shifts, I want to move with it and make space for what needs to happen. I am, then, shifting my online teaching schedule from seven classes a week to four: Nourishing Movement on Mondays, Dharma Dance or All Out All You Movement Parties on Fridays, and Restorative Yoga on Wednesdays and Sundays (Minimal Props and Nesting Props, respectively). For my own health and energy and for the space to allow change to happen, let’s keep moving together while we are apart.

When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into its dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment, or awakening to our true nature, to our fundamental goodness. ~ Pema Chödrön (Find the full quote here.)

Sometimes, I experience the practice of restorative yoga as “surfing sensation.” Feeling waves of breath and sensation and allowing myself to ride it, move in it, let go into all of it. In today’s Moon River Restorative Yoga practice, use simple props to dive deep into the sensations in arms and legs…and the dynamic quality of uncertainty. Find the video here.

Minimal Props for the Practice:

~ carpet – blanket – yoga mat
~ 2 bath towels
~ 1 or 2 small towels, scarf, t-shirt
~ wall or book case near the floor (optional)
~ tea or water (optional)
