Yoga for the Hard Days

This 30-minute practice is designed for when you're having a rough day. Start by congratulating yourself for making it to the mat, then settle into a sweet meditation, breathe, visualize yourself in a better place, find compassion and let yourself off the hook. Begin to move, breathe, soften, and find gentleness towards yourself. Flow through Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), a hip and hamstring opening sequence, Half Pigeon (Ardha Kapotasana), and Wild Thing (Camatkarasana). Come down onto the mat to breathe into forward folds, twists, hip and side body openers. Create space in the body, move energy, breathe, and find tenderness for yourself.

For this class, a blanket and 1-2 blocks are optional for additional support.
