Aired -

Kevin Bigger

e-ryt 500 yoga teacher and teacher trainer based in brooklyn, ny.  i started practicing yoga up in boston in my late teens, immediately after a period of massive (less than healthy) weight loss, and just before...
(suggested props: two blocks, two or three blankets, a bolster or big pillow, and a sandbag (if you have one, totally fine if you don’t!)

In most backbends and inversions we learn to move the front of the thigh to the back of the thigh, and also to draw the back of the heart towards the front of the heart. This practice unpacks these actions before we explore shoulderstand, supported backbends, and other restorative shapes to help ease your transition from Summer to Fall.

(Int) The most delicious (and stealthily challenging) of Kula classes. A one hour serving of sticky, sweaty Kula Flow, lathered with 20 minutes of yin yoga (deep, intense stretching) and a 15 minute restorative asana topping. YUM. We know that no one needs a little deep chill out more than NYC yogis, but most of us are too type A to take a true restorative class. So – this is the Kula solution. As one student put it: "You kick our ass for an hour and then kiss it for another 30 minutes.” (Sanskrit translation please)?
