Anchor into Balance favorite_border
Do you have aspects of your life in need of more balance and harmony? Join Rachel in this energizing Vinyasa flow class to find clarity on the relationships and parts of your life that are in need of healing. An especially potent practice will invite you to dig a little deeper and plant seeds for a new beginning.
Create your sacred altar space, then begin lying down to ground into your breath and the moment here and now. Invite gentle movement with Supine Twists (Jathara Parivartanasana) and a bit of core work to wake up your power center. Shift into cycles of Cat/Cow (Marjaryasana/Bitilasana) then challenge your strength a bit with a fun hovering Tabletop (Bharmanasana) variation. Continue by mindfully flowing through Sun Salutation A (Surya Namaskar A), powerful core work in Plank Pose (Utthita Chaturanga Dandasana), Twisted Low Lunges (Parivrtta Anjaneyasana), and a low variation of Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana).
Transition into Malasana to create some space in the hips and inner thighs, then lean back and choose a variation of Boat Pose (Navasana) to keep your fire going in the core. Make your way into Chair Pose (Utkatasana) to energize the glutes, then slow things way down with Half Pigeon Pose (Ardha Kapotasana), Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana), and finally, Corpse Pose (Savasana).
After asana, Rachel pulls an oracle card to provide further insight as you ponder what energy you'd like to call in.
