Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

Namaste,

Kassandra

Start the day off right with this lovely 15 minute intermediate morning yoga class.

Good morning everyone, welcome to my channel! I'm going to take you through an energizing 15 minute morning yoga stretch to help wake you up and set your intention for the day. This vinyasa practice incorporates some yummy hip stretches, some standing balancing poses and some twists to help you feel good and begin your day with energy.

No props are required and I'd say this is best suited for intermediate students but beginners are more than welcome to give it a go as well. Leave out or modify whatever you need to. Morning yoga is a great way to set the tone for the day ahead and to carve out time for yourself before the day gets away from you.

A 45 min yin yoga practice to work on the inner leg and adductors. This is a deep stretch class.

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me in this new 45 minute yin yoga class to improve flexibility through the inner thighs. This targets the groin, inner leg and adductors which is linked with the kidney meridian. This is a great class to do if you're also working on middle splits.

We can hold a lot of tension in this part of our bodies and especially since I've started horseback riding I've noticed how stiff the inner thighs can get. I'm using a small bolster for this practice but you can easily substitute it with some blocks or pillows. This is an intermediate yin yoga class.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge

2. Be still

3. Hold the pose

 

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.

Hey everyone, this week I'm bringing you a heavily requested practice. This is an intermediate 15 minute flexibility yoga flow working on your entire body. It makes a great morning yoga practice to stretch stiff muscles as well as a great evening yoga flow to unwind from the day.

If you've got flexibility goals, these poses will help you get there! We'll mix static and dynamic stretches to give you the best of both worlds. Ideal for people who are short on time but want to stretch their entire body and improve overall mobility.

If you have flexibility goals, this is a great class to do on a regular basis to improve hip and hamstring mobility as well as deeper backbends and shoulder flexibility.

Wake up and stretch with this beginner-friendly morning yoga class themed around the crown chakra.

Good morning everyone! Thanks for joining me in this final class in the 10 minute morning chakra series. Today we're working on balancing the flow of energy in the crown chakra through gentle inversions and standing poses. This is an all levels practice with no props required.

The crown sahasrara chakra is associated with colors of white and deep violet. It relates to themes of connection, faith, spiritual truth and knowledge. It is your connection to something greater.

Balancing our chakras is about allowing for a healthy flow of energy which means we need a strong container as well as spaciousness. Not overactive, not underactive.

Thanks for watching,

Kassandra

Are you on your feet all day? If so, this 30 minute yoga stretch will help your sore and tired legs.

Hey everyone, thanks for joining me in another backyard yoga class! A few weeks ago I released a class for people who sit all day (https://youtu.be/A0i_ywpnwYQ) so this week I'm taking you through a yoga class for people who stand on their feet all day! This is a lovely stretchy yoga practice with no standing poses. We will only be going through seated and reclined yoga stretches to give your feet and legs a break.

This is suitable for all experience levels and props are optional. You can use one block and you can also position your mat near a wall for our final pose (legs up the wall).

If you have inflammation in your legs or struggle with swollen ankles and overall soreness, I think you will love this yoga class.

Enjoy this all level's yin yoga practice for a deep full body stretch, no props needed.

Hey friends, welcome to my backyard! I'm going to take you through an hour long yin yoga practice for flexibility and stress relief. This is a really relaxing full body stretch that can be practiced at any time of the day. It's suitable for all levels but you might want to have some props close by to help make some poses more accessible. If you don't own any blocks you can always use some blankets or pillows from around the house.

We'll be holding each pose for 3-4 minutes, remember not to go too deep into each pose. Try to relax into the stretch and let go.

There are 3 principles to yin yoga and it's crucial to keep these in mind!

1 - Find your edge: this means, don't push yourself! When you feel a bit of sensation, hold right here. Your body will naturally relax and open up the longer we're in it.

2 - Resolve to be still: Relax your muscles and let gravity do most of the work for you. Try not to stiffen up and contract yourself. If your muscles are tense it might be an indication that you've gone too far into a stretch.

3 - Hold the pose: Once you're fully relaxed, we're going to stay in the pose for 3-4 minutes. Please come out of it earlier if you need to! Don't push yourself.

Join me in a 10 min upper body morning yoga practice for the heart anahata chakra.

Good morning everyone, thanks for joining me! I'm going to take you through this simple 10 minute morning yoga class for your upper body. This is a vinyasa yoga class that will focus on your chest by working with the heart/anahata chakra. It's a great class to develop deeper backbends while also stretching through your chest, shoulders, mid back and upper back. No props are required and it's great for all experience levels.

The heart chakra is the fourth chakra and is thought to be located in the chest and associated with the color green. It relates to our ability to give and receive love, compassion, kindness, appreciation and empathy.

Balancing our chakras is about allowing for a healthy flow of energy which means we need a strong container as well as spaciousness. Not overactive, not underactive.

Join me in a 10 min morning yoga practice for the solar plexus manipura chakra.

Good morning everyone, thanks for joining me! I'm going to take you through this simple 10 minute morning yoga class for a boost of energy. This is a vinyasa yoga class that will focus on your core by working with the solar plexus/manipura chakra located in the abdomen. It's a great class to build core strength while also adding some side bends and twists. No props are required and it's great for all experience levels.

The solar plexus chakra is the third chakra and is thought to be located in the abdomen and associated with the color yellow. It relates to self-esteem, determination, willpower, energy and drive.

Balancing our chakras is about allowing for a healthy flow of energy which means we need a strong container as well as spaciousness. Not overactive, not underactive.

Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

An afternoon yoga flow for anyone who spends a lot of time sitting down! Hips & low back relief.

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today. This 25 minute yoga class is great to do either on your lunch break, in the afternoon or at the end of your workday to get relief from sitting. It will target your hips, lower back and shoulders to counteract the tension we often get from either being in an office chair or driving for long periods of time.

This is a practice suitable for all experience levels and no props are needed. This was my first time filming outside in my backyard this season so I hope you enjoy the sound of the birds as much as I do :)

Thanks for watching,

Kassandra

Not sure what to do with your bolster? Here are my favorite poses to do with this yoga prop!

A viewer suggested I do a quick video showing how I like to use my bolster during a yoga practice. Here are my 5 favorite ways to use my bolster! I own a lot of bolsters in varying shapes and sizes and LOVE them. They are my all time favorite prop because they are way more comfortable then blocks.

Join me in a 10 min morning hatha yoga practice for the root muladhara chakra.

Good morning everyone, thanks for joining me! I'm going to take you through this simple 10 minute morning yoga class for grounding and stability. We'll begin with this grounding 10 minute all levels root muladhara chakra yoga class. This is a hatha yoga class with no props required, suitable for beginners and all other experience levels.

The root chakra is thought to be located at the base of the spine and associated with the color red. It relates to our sense of safety, security and belonging. It deals with scarcity or abundance mindsets and relates to the first stage of infancy when we rely on our parents to care for our needs.

To have a balanced root chakra means that you feel safe and grounded in the physical world. The poses we'll be doing are targeted for the lower body such as the feet, calves, glutes, quads and hamstrings.

Join me for a 30 min beginner to intermediate yoga practice with sun salutations for strength!

Welcome everyone! I've got a fun and challenging flow for you today. Let me guide you through a 30 minute yoga class focusing on sun salutations, surya namaskar. 

Sun salutations are a wonderful way to build strength and flexibility while also building the mind-body connection. I'll be taking you through half sun salutations, sun salutations A, Sun salutations B and hatha surya namaskar. We will also have a few balancing standing poses in between each flow and we will end with some hip openers. Sun salutations are an excellent way to begin the day so this would make a great morning yoga practice.

The poses in this practice are all suitable for beginners but because of the pacing, length and speed of this class it might be best suited for intermediate level students. It's a fun class that you can do over and over again and improve over time.

No props needed. Enjoy!

An hour long full body yoga practice for deep connection, introspection and flexibility.

Hi everyone, please join me in a brand new hour long intermediate vinyasa slow flow practice. This is a well rounded yoga class to create space inside and out. You'll want to have two blocks for this class.

Physically this practice will help you increase your flexibility and mobility. We will be working from head to toe and moving slowly in and out of poses to really feel how the poses work our bodies and to stay connected to our breath. Energetically we're trying to create space within ourselves and tap into our intuition. This is a super stretchy flow, think of it like a full body and mind tune up.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

Ready for a big stretch? Hold each yin yoga pose for about 8 minutes for serious flexibility.
Ok guys, fair warning, this one is intense! Here's a 75 minute yin yoga class for deep flexibility with extra long holds. Normally when I teach yin yoga I hold each pose for about 3-4 minutes. In this practice, I'm holding them for about 7-8 minutes, which makes this class best suited for intermediate to advanced students.

The poses themselves aren't all that challenging but since we're in them for so long it might not be suitable for everyone. Don't underestimate the mental challenge with this one! I'm not using any props and we're going to do poses like half butterfly, swan, sphinx, seal and cat pulling it's tail.

There are 3 principles to yin yoga and it's crucial to keep these in mind!

1 - Find your edge: this means, don't push yourself! When you feel a bit of sensation, hold right here. Your body will naturally relax and open up the longer we're in it.
2 - Resolve to be still: Relax your muscles and let gravity do most of the work for you. Try not to stiffen up and contract yourself. If your muscles are tense it might be an indication that you've gone too far into a stretch.
3 - Hold the pose: Once you're fully relaxed, we're going to stay in the pose for 7-8 minutes. Please come out of it earlier if you need to! Don't push yourself.

Let's challenge ourselves with this 30 minute advanced yoga class with minimal cues.

Welcome to this advanced minimal cues yoga practice! This is a 30 minute flow that will challenge you with balancing poses and inversions without any extra chatter from me.

This is a full body practice which will work on peak poses such as bird of paradise, headstand and crow pose. It is best suited for intermediate to advanced students who are looking for a strong flow with some great stretches for flexibility as well.

Minimal cues means I'm only going to call out the name of the pose and tell you how many breaths to hold it for. This is why you need to have a strong enough practice to be able to understand alignment cues without having them voiced.

Try to have fun with this and don't worry so much about the outcome! It's a journey. Enjoy it :)

Hey everyone, I've got a fun and challenging yoga class for you! This is almost an hour long and will work your core, hips and shoulders. This is best suited for intermediate to advanced students as we will be preparing ourselves for flying splits (eka pada kundinyasana 2) and headstand (sirsasana). These poses are completely optional so please don't let this scare you from trying the class! You will absolutely be able to leave them out if needed and modify.

Even though this class requires strength we'll also have lots of deep stretches added. No props are required, just a positive attitude ;)

Enjoy!

Begin your day with some positive affirmations to set the tone and get grounded.

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel! I'm going to take you through a 5 minute morning meditation with positive affirmations to help you set the tone for the day ahead. You can do this seated or lying down, whatever feels the best to you.

As I you listen to the affirmations, simply repeat them internally to yourself a few times. Notice what they bring up in you. It's normal for some affirmations to feel good while others may trigger some discomfort or resistance. This is a great opportunity for introspection and I highly recommend journaling after this meditation to uncover the source of your feelings towards the affirmations.

AFFIRMATIONS:

I allow myself to slow down and enjoy life

I treat my body with love and respect

I am willing to change and grow

I trust the timing of my life

I am at peace with the flow of life

I look in the mirror and love what I see

I trust my insight and intuition

I inspire others by being myself

I am blessed, grateful and abundant

I allow al parts of me to be expressed

I find balance between giving and receiving

I value my own beliefs and opinions

I shift from competition to collaboration

I step into my power with confidence and grace

My self-esteem is growing day by day

Increase strength and flexibility in this hour long beginner vinyasa yoga class. No props needed!

Hey everyone, welcome back! I'm so happy to be bringing you an hour long beginner yoga class. Even though it was made with beginners in mind, it's a lovely class for all levels.

This 60 minute beginner yoga class will focus on strength, flexibility and balance. It's a well-rounded practice for all experience levels. We move in and out of the poses fairly slowly to build body awareness and improve balance. I'm not using any props for this practice but you may want to have a block close by.

Most of the classes I've been doing lately have been intermediate to advanced so I thought it'd be nice to do a beginner friendly flow! This class will help you improve flexibility and build the foundational strength necessary to progress into your practice.

Stretch everything out and improve flexibility with this relaxing slow yoga flow!

Hey yogis, I've got a new 45 minute slow flow yoga class for you that's meant to help you stretch your entire body and increase your flexibility. This is a very relaxing yoga class with no strength required. Great to do towards the end of the day when you want to unwind. We'll go deep into your hips, hamstrings, spine and shoulders with a mix of seated and standing poses.

The stretches can be a bit intense so I would say this is an intermediate yoga class but beginners can certainly follow along and leave some poses out. No props required.

A full body 30 minute yoga class featuring my dog Luna :) Great to do in the morning.

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel! Today I'm taking you through a sequence I had improvised and shared on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/CGSrBMgp-VH/). Lots of you requested it so here it is! This is a fantastic 30 minute yoga class to do in the morning or later on in the afternoon. It's an intermediate yoga flow with no props needed.

The first part of the class is done reclined with some stretches for you hips and hamstrings before moving into our standing poses. There are a few challenging poses thrown in like moving from eagle to warrior 3, a half bow/half locust pose, a deep warrior 2 stretch and square pose with a twist. This is a great yoga class to do for lower body flexibility.

Since I moved to my new studio so many of you have been asking for my pets to be featured more. It's pretty easy for me to include the cats but lately you've been asking about my dog Luna, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Truth be told - I don't know if she will be invited back! There was a lot I had to cut out of the video. In any case, I hope you enjoyed the class and appreciated her cuteness!

Hey yogis, today's intermediate vinyasa flow class has a little bit of everything. I shared this flow on my Instagram account not long ago and so many of you wanted me to share it here, so here it is!

This is a true intermediate practice with a few challenges thrown in to help you build strength and improve your balance.

This was one of the first classes I filmed in my new home studio, I hope you'll like it :) The studio isn't quite ready yet but it's been so fun for me to record in the comfort of my own home. Thank you so much for all of your love and support.

A slow moving vinyasa class to connect to your breath and feel at ease in your body.

Hey everyone, this week I'm offering you a 40 minute vinyasa flow practice that moves slowly to help you cultivate mindfulness. This will also help you connect to your intuition and the flow of your breath. I love slow flows because they can be physically challenging while also being calming and grounding. If you've been experiencing stress, I think this yoga class will help.

We'll begin with a grounding meditation before doing some seated poses to warm up our spine. You can then expect some hip openers and there will be an option for a headstand. I'm not using any props in this class but you can certainly have them if needed. This is ideal for intermediate students but beginners can leave out poses to make it suitable to them. Remember to go slow and really feel the connection with your breath.

Enjoy this full body vinyasa flow class with very little talking to allow for introspection!

By popular request, here's a brand new minimal cues yoga flow! This class is great for intermediate to advanced students or yoga teachers who are already familiar with proper alignemnt in poses. I won't be talking during class other than naming the pose. We'll be in each posture for about 3-5 breaths unless specified otherwise!

This is a great 45 minute full body vinyasa flow class to stretch, strengthen and work on balance. You'll even have the opportunity to come into forearm stand for some inversion work! No props are required.

The beauty of minimal cues practices is that they allow you to really tune in to your own practice and stay in the present moment. This is a great yoga class for introspection. I hope you enjoy it!

A full body yoga stretch for all levels! Great to do in the evening or before bed.

Hey yogis, before you head off to bed take 15 minutes to stretch on your mat. This gentle yoga class will help you release tension from your muscles and decompress after a long day. I'll take you through my favorite breathing exercise to facilitate sleep which is the 4-4-4 breath. I'm using two blocks at the beginning of class but please note that it is optional! You can still do this class without props.

Stretching before bed is a wonderful way to shift your mindset to rest and relaxation after a busy day. This is your opportunity to tune everything out and focus on yourself. These are simple yoga poses and a gentle sequence accessible to all levels, including beginners!

Have a great night yogis :)

Get stronger in handstands by practicing the L-shape at the wall!

Hey yogis, a lot of you have been asking me for tutorials on handstands. While I can do them, they are still very challenging for me and it took me years to build up enough strength to get into them! I'm still not at all an expert. There are lots of different ways of building upper body strength and practicing handstands. In this 5 minute yoga tutorial, I'll show you how to do an L-Shape at the wall to get into handstand.

If you want to get good at this inversion, practicing the L-shape every day is an amazing way to get you there. There are lots of other exercises you can do that will help you master your handstands. If you'd like to know what those are, leave me a comment below and I'd be happy to film it for you.

Enjoy this 5 minute drill and get ready to work on your shoulders, core and arms.

This Vinyasa Flow yoga practice will dramatically improve your flexibility in your hips & hamstrings.

Hey yogis, this week I'm bringing you a 45 minute intermediate vinyasa flow yoga class meant to help you increase your overall flexibility. There will be a special focus on stretching our hips, hamstrings, glutes and quads. This is a dynamic and fun vinyasa flow yoga class and no props are required.

This is a true intermediate practice so you can expect a few challenging poses but we move slowly through the sequence to make it more accessible. There will be a mix of static and dynamic stretching. We'll begin lying down before making our way into some standing hip openers.

(Apologies for the video being a bit blurry, I didn't realize my lens was a bit out of focus while filming!)

A 60 min Vin to Yin detox class that focuses on twists, backbends and hip openers.

Back by popular demand! I've got an hour long Vin to Yin yoga practice to work your entire body. The first 30 minutes of this class will be a dynamic Vinyasa flow that will incorporate twists and backbends. The last 30 minute or the class will be yin yoga to get into some hip openers and gentle twists.

This is a wonderful practice for a full body detox. A great mix of strength and stretch at an intermediate level. I would recommend having two blocks for this class but it's not necessary.

A 45 minute yin yoga class to increase flexibility and melt away stress.

Hey yogis, in this 45 min yin yoga class I'll take you through some pretty deep stretches! Blocks aren't necessary for this class but I do recommend having two or grabbing some cushions from around the house. This is a full body yin yoga class to improve your flexibility. We'll get into some more challenging yin yoga asanas making this an intermediate level class. Enjoy!

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Find your edge means respecting your body's limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.

Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student.

You'll have an opportunity to strengthen and stretch your muscles while also working on balance. You'll even get the opportunity to do an arm balance and inversion.

Minimal cues means I won't be talking much throughout this practice, I'm only going to call out the pose. We'll be staying in each pose for 3-5 breaths. This is a wonderful way to make your practice more mindful and introspective.

Yoga With Kassandra

Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

A deep stretch yin yoga class for your hips and legs to increase flexibility.

Hey yogis, I'm so excited to be bringing you this hour long yin yoga class for hip flexibility! This is a deep stretch yin yoga practice that will focus on increasing mobility in your lower body. We'll be working on your low back pelvic, glutes, hips, thighs and hamstrings. Make sure you have two blocks for this practice as we work on internal and external hip rotation.

Yin yoga is a passive practice where we hold deep stretches for 3-5 minutes. We want to relax our muscles so the effect of the pose can go into our joints and connective tissues. I would say this is an intermediate yin yoga class as it is quite intense but it can always be done by beginner students as long as you modify or reduce the intensity of the stretches.

I hope you enjoy this deep hip opening yin yoga 60 minute class!

Stretch it out with this beginner-friendly 10 min morning yoga class, no props needed!

Good morning yogis! I've got an awesome yoga class for you this morning to help you slowly wake up your body and stretch all over. No props needed for this practice and it's suitable for beginners (all levels).

We'll begin with some seated stretches to open up the hamstrings and side of the waist before getting into some standing flows including Warrior 1 and some shoulder openers. There's a little bit of strength added in there as well before we close with a seated hip opener. Enjoy and REMEMBER, a little bit of yoga every day is much better than long sessions done every now and then. I hope you'll practice again with me tomorrow :)

Enjoy a 1 hour long deep stretch yin yoga class for full body flexibility!

Hey yogis, I know you guys love my longer sequences so here's a yummy hour long yin yoga deep stretch class! If you want to improve your overall flexibility and relieve stress, this is the perfect class for you.

Stretch out your hips, shoulders, hamstrings and low back with this lovely sequence that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and comfortable in your own body. This is a great class to do regularly if you're trying to improve flexibility and mobility in your joints. You'll need two blocks for this practice and you can use some yoga jellies for more cushioning of the knees.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Find your edge means respecting your body's limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.

Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student.

Enjoy this 10 minute slow flow yoga class for a nice full body stretch!

Hey yogis, you guys asked so here it is! I've got a new 10 minute slow flow full body stretch yoga class for you. This is a wonderful way to stretch our sore or stiff muscles first thing in the morning or as a way to wind down at night.

If you have flexibility goals, this is a great class to do on a regular basis to improve hip and hamstring mobility as well as deeper backbends and shoulder flexibility.

Chair yoga is a wonderful practice for every body, suitable for beginners and seniors.

Hey yogis, this week I'm offering you an easy chair yoga sequence that's suitable for all experience levels, a great yoga class for beginners, seniors or people with limited mobility.

Chair yoga is a great way to slowly and gently build strength and flexibility. You won't need anything other than a chair, try to find one that doesn't have arms and one that has back support.

Enjoy a 1 hour long yin yoga class for full body flexibility!

Hey yogis, here's an hour long yin yoga practice for full body flexibility! Stretch out your hips, shoulders, hamstrings and low back with this lovely sequence that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and comfortable in your own body. This is a great class to do regularly if you're trying to improve flexibility and mobility in your joints. You will need a block for this practice and a blanket is optional but nice to have.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Find your edge means respecting your body's limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.

Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student.

Try my new 30 min yin yoga practice to increase your back flexibility

Hey yogis, this week I'm pleased to be bringing you a 30 min yin yoga class to help you increase flexibility in your spine. If you'd like to get into some deeper backbends, this is a great practice to do on a regular basis. We'll open up your shoulders and chest as well as increase flexibility along your spine from upper to lower back. We'll get into the pectorals and hip flexors a well. You'll need two blocks close by.

This is a pretty intense yin yoga practice that I would characterize as intermediate to advanced due to the nature of the poses. This isn't to say that beginners can't do this practice but please be mindful of not pushing yourself or going too far. This is not appropriate if you have slipped or herniated discs.

A great 15 min ab yoga ab workout to give you a boost of energy and strength!

Hey yogis, this week's yoga class is all about your core! This sequence can be done as a morning yoga class or anytime during the day when you need a little "pick me up". I always find that working on strengthening my core gives me energy and focus.

While this mainly focuses on abdominal strength, we'll also engage the upper and lower back, glutes and thighs to work the mid-section as a whole.

Here's a beginner yin yoga class for full body flexibility that doesn't require props.

Hey yogis, I'm happy to be expanding my yin yoga without props series with an hour long class this week. This is a great full body stretch you can do anytime, anywhere. You won't need any blocks, bolsters or straps!

We'll target your hips, hamstrings, chest and shoulders in this 60 minute practice. Yin Yoga is meant to be a passive practice where we focus on the fascia and deep connective tissues. Try to relax your muscles as you hold the poses for 2-5 minutes on each side. Remember not to push past your edge, less is always more!

Stretch hips & hamstrings with this 45 min intermediate to advanced yoga flow with minimal cues.

Hey yogis, I'm adding on to my popular Minimal Cues yoga series with a 45 minute practice geared towards intermediate to advanced students!

Get ready to stretch your hips and hamstrings with this dynamic flow. In a minimal cues practice I will only tell you the name of the pose and we will hold each pose for about 3 breaths. This is ideal for experienced students or yoga teachers who want to be guided in their practice without hearing to much chatter.

We'll be working our way into some pretty deep poses such as revolved triangle and splits. I'm not using any props for this class.

If you enjoy minimal cues make sure to try the other ones I have available on my channel! Just search "minimal cues yoga" in the YouTube search bar to find them :)

Restore hormonal balance with this 30 minute yin yoga practice for the endocrine system

Hey yogis, this week I have a very special yin yoga practice for you! If you have hormonal issues, this 30 minute yin yoga practice might be just what you need.

While yoga is not a cure, it can help support the healthy functioning of your endocrine system. Hormonal imbalances such as adrenal fatigue or thyroid problems can be aggravated with stress. By practicing restorative styles of yoga like Yin Yoga we can soothe the nervous system and reduce stress. We will do poses that encourage blood flow to the adrenals, pancreas and thyroid. You'll need 2 blocks for this practice.

Salute the sun with this intermediate energizing 15 minute morning yoga flow!

Hey yogis, I've got another quick yoga class for you that's wonderful to do first thing in the morning or before a workout. Sun salutations are a wonderful practice to elevate your heart rate while strengthening and stretching your entire body.

We'll begin with a quick warmup and then move to some half sun salutations followed by a few rounds of Sun Salutation A and then Sun Salutation B. We'll wind down with a standing forward fold, malasana and a seated twist before closing with a short meditation.

Modify and take breaks if you need to! It can take a while to build strength in this type of movement but practicing it regularly will help you start your day on the right foot.

This is a fast paced practice ideal for intermediate students! Sun salutations are meant to be practiced in one breath per movement to elevate the heart rate. If you prefer slower flows, check out other videos on my channel :)

Get into lotus pose with my new 45 min vinyasa intermediate to advanced hip opening yoga class.

Hey yogis, this week's class is one that has been requested so many times over the years! I've put off making it simply because lotus pose isn't always safe for many people's knees. No matter how advanced in your practice you may be, some poses might simply not feel good and that's okay!

If you'd like to try this flow for yourself, please do so very mindfully. For some, lotus pose feels great and puts no strain on the knees. For others, it's painful and detrimental to their practice. Let's always make sure we do things because they FEEL GOOD rather than because they LOOK GOOD.

Okay, moving on from that disclaimer... This pose will focus on deep hip openers, especially external hip rotation to prepare you for lotus. We'll start with a stronger standing series before settling into some seated hip openers. I would say it is an intermediate to advanced practice. I hope you enjoy it!

Try this 20 minute beginner vinyasa flow sequence to build strength and increase overall flexibility!

Hey yogis, this week I'm bringing you a simple but fun 20 minute beginner vinyasa flow yoga class for strength and flexibility. This is great for yogis just getting into their practice who want something slower paced that still hits all the marks.

We'll move in and out of poses slowly to build balance and foundational strength. You can expect a really good stretch in your hips and hamstrings as well. No props required!

Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way.

Here's a beginner yin yoga class for full body flexibility that doesn't require props.

Hey yogis, I got a great request recently to put together a yin yoga class that wouldn't utilize any props. As you most likely know, yin yoga tends to be quite prop intensive using blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets and many other items that you might not always have around.

If you're travelling or just low on props, this yin yoga class will take you through a 40 minute sequence you can do without equipment! Of course, I'm a big lover of props so always recommend having them close by, but this is a nice class to do in a pinch :)

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Find your edge means respecting your body's limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.

Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student.

1 hour yoga class that combines Vinyasa & Yin Yoga for strength and courage.

Hey yogis, this week I'm offering you an hour long yoga practice that combines Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga - my two favorites!

We'll start off with a strong flow sequence before winding down with some yin asanas to improve flexibility. The theme of this practice is cultivating inner and outer strength. Vin to Yin is the perfect class to exemplify this theme as the vinyasa portion will definitely help you tap into to your physical power while the yin yoga sequence will emphasize the inner strength required in letting go and allowing.

Improve your balance with this 30 min challenging minimal cues yoga flow!

Hey yogis, this is another minimal cues yoga class great for Yoga Teachers or intermediate to advanced students. This practice is done with very little instruction and a lot of silence to allow for an introspective practice.

Students should be able to know the alignment cues that go along with the poses in order to do this safely. In this 35 minute sequence we will put a lot of focus on standing poses that improve balance! You'll also have the opportunity to come into a headstand at the end of the practice.

A 35 min vinyasa flow class with binds to open up your shoulders, chest and upper back.

Hey yogis, this week's flow is all about binds! Binds are usually thought of as being restrictive and constricting and while that is true, I like to think of binds as freeing too! When one part of your body contracts, another expands. As you bind the shoulders, you're able to open up into the chest and upper back. This is the concept we'll be playing with in this 35 minute intermediate vinyasa flow with binds.

Make sure to have a strap and 2 blocks close by for this practice. Always take it slow with binds and don't push yourself. This is a really fun flow that will take you through different variations of Warrior 2, Triangle, Seated Twist and Bird of Paradise.

A strong 30 min arm balance yoga flow to get you into eka pada 2!

Hey yogis, today's class is all about making our way into one of my all-time favorite arm balances, Eka Pada Kundinyasana 2! (eka pada 2 for short, it's a mouthful!)

Not only does this pose require a strong upper body, you also need quite a bit of hamstring flexibility to be able to extend your legs.

This flow will warm you up in just the right way to give you your best shot at balancing on your hands. We'll do a lot of core work and then get into poses like pyramid, wide fold and Warrior 2 to open up your hips and hamstrings. I'm not using any props in this practice and this is best suited for intermediate to advanced yogis.

A 30 min yoga class with very little talking, great for yoga teachers or advanced students

Hi yogis, welcome to my channel! Today I''m offering you a quick 30 minute yoga practice with minimal verbal cues ideal for Yoga Teachers or advanced students. I won't be giving you any alignment tips in this class or breathing instructions, I'll only be naming the poses.

The class itself isn't necessarily that hard but since I'm not going in detail about breath and alignment, it's more suitable for experiences yogis or teachers. The sequence is intermediate level.

I love doing online yoga classes myself but as a teacher I don't always want to listen to the other teacher explain every single thing about a pose. Sometimes it's nice to just be guided in your practice and make room for silence to make it a meditative practice!

Stretch out your quads and thighs in this 40 min yin yoga class.
Hey yogis, I'm back with a brand new Yin Yoga class filmed in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica! This class was a special request from one of my subscribers and focuses on opening up the quads, thighs and hips flexors.

There aren't very many yin yoga poses that focus on the quads, but there are four and those are the ones we'll be doing today. The poses include: laying quad stretch, twisted lizard/dragon, reclined hero and cat pulling it's tail.

The quadriceps are big muscles at the front of the thighs that can get quite tight, especially for athletes. This practice will target the entire front of the thigh, from the hip flexors all the way down to the top of the knee. This is a great yin yoga class to do if you have knee tension, although people with acute knee injuries should not practice this!

Make sure you have lots of props such as a blanket, two blocks and a strap.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the "stress" and the "Stretch" to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

A 40 min fiery flow to work your core and find your inner power, great for intermediate yogis!

Are you ready to stoke the fire within? This 40 minute Vinyasa Flow class focuses on the element of fire to build internal heat and fuel you with drive, determination and passion.

The element of fire is associated with destruction, transformation, passion and energy. It is also closely related to our self-esteem, self-confidence and our digestion. When unbalanced and underactive, we are low energy, lethargic and have a hard time making decisions and reaching our goals. When unbalanced and overactive, we are quick to anger, frazzled and destructive.

This class is meant to help you find balance with the element of fire! This is a midline focused class so most poses will be focusing on the core through abdominal work or twists. We are also going to incorporate Breath of Fire and use Kali mudra (Sat Kriya pranayama) to make the practice whole and complete.

You will need one block in order to do this fiery practice! Look out for other elemental themed classes over the next few weeks :)

The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

Get into some twists to energize your body with this 30 min yoga flow

Hey yogis, I've got a great class for you this week focusing on some of my favorite poses - twists! Twists are a wonderful way to alleviate discomfort in your spine. Whenever I get a knot in my back or pain in my lower back, a few gentle twists always make me feel brand new again. We'll also play with some fun balancing poses and try new variations of classic poses such as high lunge and downward dog. Twists also have a "detoxing" nature which although sounds a bit out there, all it means is that you are compressing and decompressing the internal organs to facilitate the process of elimination.

Twists are also a wonderful way to get a natural boost of energy! Instead of reaching for that 2nd cup of coffee, why not do a 30 minute slow flow twist class? This is an intermediate level class however we move through the poses fairly slowly so this would be a good class for beginner students trying to transition to intermediate level. Some of the poses are a bit harder such as standing pigeon with a twist and boat pose, feel free to skip those out!

Some of the poses we'll be playing with include laying spinal twist, revolved triangle, high lunge twist and many more!

Sorry if the footage is slightly blurry, it looks like the lens was not quite in focus! Hopefully you are still able to follow along :)

Indulge in a 90 min yin yoga class for full body flexibility and relaxation. Since I started my youtube channel I've gotten SO many requests from you guys to do some longer Yin Yoga classes! It's not that I don't like longer sessions, they just obviously demand much more time to film and edit. However, I've finally gotten around to creating a 90 minute Yin Yoga class for an OMazing mini retreat at home!

This full body stretch Yin Yoga practice will help you open up your hips, shoulders, low back, hamstrings and quads. It's head to toe yumminess! I'm using 2 blocks and a big bolster for this practice. If you don't own a bolster, don't worry about it! You can grab a big cushion or a few bed pillows or even just use your blocks.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the "stress" and the "Stretch" to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.

Hey friends, this week's Yin Yoga class is a 50 minute practice to help you achieve your side splits! (Or as some people call it, middle splits). If you have tightness in your inner groin and hamstrings this class will definitely do the trick.

If practiced regularly, you will notice a lot of improvement in your flexibility. I plan on doing this routine a few times a week myself as middle/side splits are a big weakness of mine and something I want to improve on!

You'll need 2 blocks and a blanket in order to do this practice. I was joined by my little kitty Kitkat :)

A 40 min power vinyasa yoga class to strengthen and tone your body

Hey yogis, by popular request I've put together a 40 minute power vinyasa practice that will help you build strength to work your way into crow pose. This is a great intermediate level flow that will guide you through some sun salutations, standing twists, balancing poses, an arm balance and a gentle inversion at the end of the class.

This is a strong practice so take as many breaks as you need to and go at your own pace! This practice is meant to elevate your heart rate and engage your muscles for toning and definition while connecting with your breath to move mindfully.

Enjoy this 30 minute yoga class for beginners who want full body flexibility and strength.

Hi friends, this week I'm offering you a 30 minute practice perfect for beginners! Now just because a class is for beginners, doesn't mean it isn't challenging! We are going to work on building foundational strength, balance and flexibility.

We'll begin with a very short meditation to be grounded and then warming up the spine with some fluid motions. We'll then move to hands and knees and start to engage the abdominals which is key when it comes to improving balance.

Our flows will take you through a Warrior sequence where we focus on alignment and breath to do the poses safely and effectively. I'm not using any props for this practice but you may want to have a block somewhere close by.

A 45 min yin yoga class for your liver and gall bladder meridian lines.

Good morning everyone, I'm adding onto my Yin Yoga Meridian series by focusing on the Liver this time! To really benefit the liver we are working with two different meridian lines, the liver and the gall bladder meridian.

These poses will mostly focus on the hips (as do most Yin Yoga asanas) but they will also include some side body stretches to really target that organ. You will hopefully feel rejuvenated and energized after class! I won't be using any props during class but you may want to have 1 block close by just in case, some of the hip openers are pretty intense!

The meridians are energetic pathways from Chinese Medicine that help flow Qi (pronounced chee) through the body. This is a vital energy source that helps support organ health, longevity and overall vitality.

Get a full body workout with this high intensity 30 min yoga class

I don't know about you but I ate a lot of holiday treats this season ;) If you're looking for a shorter practice that will give you a great workout, this is it! This 30 minute Vinyasa Flow yoga class does everything in one. You can expect some twists, core work, balancing poses and gentle inversions to strengthen and tone your entire body. It's also a great cardio workout that incorporates some HIIT (high intensity interval training) to elevate your heart rate and lose weight if this is something you're interested in.

This is a great class to do when you're feeling a little bit sluggish and need a boost of energy. It's an intermediate level class that doesn't do any poses that are too advanced or complicated, but you will most certainly get a great workout! You'll need 1 block for our practice today.

Explore the chakras in this 75 min yin yoga class for all levels

We've got a very special yin yoga class today yogis! This 75 minute yin yoga class focuses on the 7 chakras. Whether you believe in chakras or not, I encourage you to try this class with an open mind.

This is more than just a yoga class where we stretch and strengthen. Instead, this class calls on us to dive a little bit deeper and use our yoga practice to make meaningful changes in our daily lives.

The Seven Chakras:

- Root Chakra/Muladhara: safety, survival, community & family
- Sacral Chakra/Svadhisthana: creativity, sexuality, relationships
- Naval Chakra/Manipura: self-esteem, confidence, individuality
- Heart Chakra/Anahata: love, caring, oneness, acceptance
- Throat Chakra/Visuddha: truth, clear communication, integrity
- Third Eye Chakra/Ajna: wisdom, intuition, guidance
- Crown Chakra/Sahasrara: divine connection, spirituality, oneness with all

I hope you find this class beneficial in some way.

Get rid of upper back knots and pain with this 30 minute beginner yin yoga class.

Hi Yogis, this week's Yin Yoga class was inspired by own upper back issues. For a few weeks I was suffering from a horrible knot in my upper back and although Yin Yoga didn't completely fix it, certain poses provided a lot of relief!

This is a short practice that I'm hoping will also provide relief to others also suffering from tightness, tension and knots in the upper back. Have a block close by and let's get started :)

The reason we do this is so that we can send the "stress" and the "Stretch" to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

Namaste,

Twist and detox for a boost of energy with this 45 min vinyasa flow yoga class

Good morning yogis! This week I'm bringing you a 45 minute Yoga Flow class that focuses on reclined, seated and standing twists! Twists are some of my favorite poses to do as they bring a boost of energy, relieve aches and pains in the low back, stimulate healthy digestion and improve mobility of the spine.

Twists are often associated with detoxing and although that may sound like a bunch of nonsense, all that's really meant by this is that twists support the natural process of digestion and elimination by compression and decompressing the internal organs.

This is an intermediate level practice that will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed! Enjoy!

A 30 min gentle full body flow to stretch and feel good

Good morning yogis, today's yoga class is a very chill slow flow to give you a full body tune up! Although it will require some strength and balance, the focus of the class is really to open up tight areas of the body and move slowly to properly engage each muscle. We will begin our class with a seated meditation for a body scan and end in savasana. Poses will include: triangle, seated twist and standing side bends. Please make sure you have 1 block to do this class.

An intense 30 min yin yoga class for hip & hamstring flexibility

Namaste yogis, this class was filmed during my trip to Cuba in February. I know.. took me 4 months to upload.. I'm kind of a procrastinator... but here it is! This is what I call an "intense" yin yoga class because it includes what I think are the most challenging yin yoga postures. It focuses a lot on hamstrings with some hip openers as well. We will do poses like splits, wide leg forward fold, low lunge and we begin and end with a short meditation. I hope you enjoy this practice :)

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.

Get a good night's rest with this 30 minute beginner yoga class for sleep.

I used to have a very hard time falling asleep at night and would lay awake for hours! I'm much better now but every now and then restlessness creeps up on me and when it does, I turn to yoga to help. This sequence is a gentle hatha practice that will incorporate some easy hip openers and forward folds to soothe a busy mind and a restless body. Melt away tension and get ready for a deep night sleep. No props required but you can always grab a few pillows and blankets to get extra cozy.

Increase flexibility with this 1 hour full body deep stretch yoga class.

My Christmas gift to you is an indulgent, hour long yin yoga class for flexibility! Stretch out your hips, shoulders, hamstrings and low back with this lovely sequence that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and comfortable in your own body. You will need two blocks for this practice and a blanket is optional but nice to have.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more felxibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counterintuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the "stress" and the "Stretch" to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.

1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.
