Halo & Archer Flow Into Pigeon & Hero Fusion

Aired -

1h 12m
In this dynamic and transformative yoga class, we'll embark on a journey that combines powerful shoulder work with hip opening and quad stretches for a comprehensive and invigorating practice.

The class begins with the Halo & Archer Flow, where we'll dive into the exploration of strength and stability in the shoulders. Through a series of poses and movements inspired by the archer's stance and the graceful arc of the halo, we'll activate and sculpt the muscles of the shoulders, promoting strength, flexibility, and enhanced range of motion.

As we transition into the close of the class, we'll shift our focus towards the hips and quads. Guided by a strong vinyasa flow, we'll engage in a series of poses that target these areas, helping to release tension and create space in the hips while also strengthening and stretching the quadriceps.

The pinnacle of the practice comes with the fusion of Pigeon and Hero poses. Pigeon pose opens the hips deeply, releasing stored tension and promoting a sense of release and freedom. Half Hero pose stretches the quads, providing a gentle yet effective way to enhance flexibility and relieve tightness in this muscle group.

Whether you're a beginner or have an established practice, this class will meet you where you are and guide you towards greater strength, flexibility, and overall well-being.

Join us in "Halo & Archer Flow Into Pigeon & Hero Fusion" and experience the transformative power of combining shoulder work, hip opening, and quad stretches in a cohesive and engaging yoga practice. Discover the joy of fluid movement, increased mobility, and a deep connection to your body and breath.

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.
