yep. every body can do the pose known as Wild Thing...
as in, we can all learn the key strengtheners and stretches that comprise this side-bending side plank. give it a go and feel more open in your chest and shoulders, and stronger in your back and abdominals.

ok, this one does get a little yoga weird...there's some face and jaw massage incorporated: great for clearing out the sinuses during the spring transition, and letting go of the tension we hold in our expressions.
but there's also plenty of regular flow to get your whole body moving. you'll de-stress, find balance, and feel good.

this one goes deep on revolved triangle and its component parts: strong standing postures, twists, and hip opening. you'll start slow and work your way up.
also included: ridiculous chatter about ottomans and Monty Python references.

well, it started out to be about twisting triangle...and turned into a discussion about the Down Dog variation where you turn one foot out, bend one knee, tilt your hips up, stretch your hip and hope you're doing it right.
then, the fabulous hellogretchen gives that word salad a rebranding that everyone (with a sense of humour) can appreciate.

this one starts with a good floor stretch, then moves up into steady flow and balance practice...a solid practice for shifting your energy anytime.
March 9, 2022
this one gets going with Down Dog and keeps going...through strong flow, balance and a mini-workshop on Revolved Triangle, right up to Savasana.

bookmark this one for when you want a strong flow without a ton of chaturanga...even if you don't need to go light on your arms, it's a good break from the usual.
we move everything, pay special attention to posture, and take plenty of time to stretch out.
thanks for playing!

good question! kriyas are breathing practices meant to cleanse and heal the body...in yoga practice, at least the way we practice it here, they're usually breathing patterns linked to specific, repeated movements.
things like cat-and-cow could be considered a kriya...and one of our favorite is the Frog Kriya...no jumping or ribbit-ing involved.
