This collection of element-inspired yoga flows connects the power of the nature within our bodies and our practice. We will connect to the Earth to grounds us and create a solid foundation of power, and channel Fire to burn away old waste and leave us feeling illuminated.
In Earth | Foundational Flows we use slow, deliberate asana and grounding pranayama to build a strong foundation that roots us. In Fire | Radiant Body we will connect to our inner radiance with heat-building asana and pranayama. By stoking our inner fire, we will build vital heat in our core and allow that heat to permeate the rest of our body while we flow, cleansing old habits and patterns, and bringing us closer to our true strength and light.
Each flow begins slowly, building heat and stability before flowing into a peak posture. You will leave each practice feeling rooted, nourished and energized to bring this same luminance and strength of mind to every aspect of your life.
The fire element signifies transformation and our inner light. Through cultivating heat through physical asana and Pranayama, we allow this heat to slowly melt away the physical and emotional baggage from past experiences, letting our internal fire fully shine.
I structured each 30-minute flow in this series so we may access, control and draw upon the breath (through Pranayama) as the connecting tool to break up congestion in the body. This openness then emanates to our heart in both the physical and energetic sense. The physical asana not only moves into backbends, but we'll take our time in truly opening around the heart, expanding our capacity to love ourselves and those around us.
Regularly incorporating these flows into our yoga practice can cultivate a lasting transformation in the way we live our lives on and off the mat.
This yoga series will connect you to the earth using beautifully sequenced slow-moving asana and grounding pranayama, mudras and meditations.
These five practices focus on lower body stability and will grow your capacity to stay grounded amidst life’s ups and downs. Each 30-minute flow is a daily opportunity to slow down and pay close attention to the minute details of your body and foundation. The sequences begin slowly – just like the movement of the earth – and our aim is to sustain this grounded yet fluid energy. You will leave each practice feeling rooted, nourished and energized to bring this same focus and strength of mind to every aspect of your life.
