How to Do Lotus Pose (Part 1)

Lotus Pose, Padmasana, is a masterful posture. For many students, it remains elusive because it requires both technique and time. Once it unfolds, Lotus replaces tight hips with a freeing range of motion and is a gateway to other advanced poses. This week’s video is Part 1 of a 2-Part Tutorial on Lotus. It is instructional with some fast-track tips so you can learn technique and add it to your practice in class.

How to Do Sun Salutation B

It’s one of the first things we learn in yoga, and yet takes a lifetime to master. No matter how many times you’ve gone through the motions of Sun Salutation B, this series of opening movements and breaths invites (and challenges) even the most practiced practitioners to keep refining and improving. I often say ‘inches off at launch, miles off in orbit,’ so here are some tips to set (or reset) your trajectory.

How to Backbend in Ustrasana

How often do you think about the flexibility of the front of your body? Most students who come to yoga are intent on opening hips or hamstrings, focusing on the back of the body. But, this can create a lop-sided approach and experience on the mat and in life, which is why backbends like, Ustrasana (Camel Pose), are so vital.

How to Breathe Ujjayi Pranayama

In this video, you’ll learn three ways to accelerate your progress with proper breath.

Pranayama brushes the inner spaces so you can get deeper into yourself.

You can develop tight hips for so many reasons: sitting extensively for work or study, enjoying activities you love, like cycling or running, or even from genetics. Happily, there is one great way you can open your hips, create better circulation in the legs and encourage inner healing in the joints. That way is today’s “How To” posture, Janu Sirsasana A.

How to Do Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)

If you find it challenging to balance in Triangle pose, or feel limited by your hamstrings, today’s “How To: Trikonasana” video is just for you. Triangle pose challenges your vestibular system – the sensory system that tells the brain about body’s spatial orientation, movement and head position. Trikonasana also helps develop flexibility in the back body and eliminates sciatic pain.
