Ease into Being

Take an opportunity to set new intentions as you welcome the fall season, tune into your heart, and ease into being as you move in this healing slow flow class with Rachel.

After a little oracle card guidance, this Healing Hour begins with a few moments of feeling your connection to the ground beneath you while lying down and settling into the present moment. Invite gentle movement into the hips and spine with soft reclined twists, Reclined Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose (Supta Padangusthasana), and Reclined Pigeon/Figure Four (Supta Kapotasana) then make your way into a seated position for modified cycles of Cat/Cow (Marjaryasana/Bitilasana) and Seated Side Bends (Parsva Sukhasana).

Transition to Tabletop (Bharmanasana) to continue warming up the body then press up into your first Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) taking notice of how you are feeling and what you need. Take a Forward Fold (Uttanasana) to create a little space in the neck and spine, then slowly roll up to standing for a bit of gentle Vinyasa flow featuring Low Lunges (Anjaneyasana), Sun Salutation A (Surya Namaskar A), High Crescent Lunges (Ashta Chandrasana), standing twists, a variation of Revolved Side Angle (Parivrtta Parsvakonasana), and Half Monkey/Splits pose (Ardha Hanumanasana).

Start to slow things down a bit more with a variation of Side Plank (Vasisthasana), Half Pigeon (Ardha Kapotasana), Half Lord of Fishes (Adrha Matsyendrasana), Seated Forward Fold (Paschimottanasana), and finally, Corpse Pose (Savasana).
