1h 5m
Welcome to "Hamstrings, Splits & Shoulders Oh MY!"—a dynamic and transformative yoga class that will take your practice to new heights. Get ready to dive deep into the world of flexibility, strength, and balance as we focus on three key areas: hamstrings, splits, and shoulders.

In this invigorating class, we'll begin by exploring a series of targeted poses and exercises designed to awaken and lengthen your hamstrings. Through mindful stretching and strengthening, we'll unlock the tightness in these muscles, improving your overall flexibility and mobility.

Next, we'll embark on a journey toward achieving front splits. With dedicated guidance and modifications, you'll gradually work towards opening your hips and increasing your range of motion. We'll explore various techniques and variations to help you find your edge and progress at your own pace.

We will also have dedicated focus time to the shoulders during the practice, releasing tension and creating space in this often-overlooked area. Through a series of invigorating poses and mindful movements, we'll strengthen and stabilize the shoulder girdle, promoting better posture and enhancing your upper body strength.

Throughout the class, you'll be encouraged to listen to your body and honor its unique needs. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced yogi, modifications will be provided to ensure that everyone feels supported and challenged at their own level.

Join me for "Hamstrings, Splits & Shoulders Oh MY!" and unlock the full potential of your body and mind. Discover the joy and empowerment that come from embracing your flexibility, reaching new heights in your practice, and finding balance and strength within.

Please bring an open mind, a willingness to explore your edge, and a sense of adventure. Let's embark on this transformative journey together and discover the amazing possibilities that lie within you.

Yoga Flow is based on the fundamentals of vinyasa, a dynamic asana (posture) practice including pranayama (breath regulation), movement, and transitions. This class involves intentional placement of body, breath, and attention to develop mind-body awareness, flexibility, strength, and concentration; it is often built around Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations). All practice levels are welcome.
