Feeling Held and Centered

Tension is a way we feel held. Kira leads us through a sweet, mindful practice working into the heart, shoulders, hips, and legs to reduce the tension that can accumulate in these areas, creating more space in your body and mind. You will feel relaxed and centered.

I’m in the midst of my first trip away from our shared (!!!) home state since the onset of Covid, and even though I’m in the beautiful, bursting foliage of Vermont at the moment, I’ve been feeling tense and vulnerable. So this morning I see a new class available from you Kira, and it’s as though the Universe custom made this for moi. This was just lovely and perfect and all the adjectives....thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️

This was such the perfect practice for me this morning. Thank you so much, Kira. Re Connecticut reference in class - I so know it. I grew up in CT too, same time frame. :)

Jenny, oh I am jealous of how close you are to the FALL! So happy to be close. xok

Jennifer, we're the same age exactly! (I sneaked a peak at your profile). I am happy we have both found our way to the land of California where "relaxed" is an art form. xoK

Great, soothing practice for me today. And easy to do while recovering from carpal tunnel surgery! My parrot enjoyed this time as well, she starts getting chatty when she hears the birds in the background!
Oh Catherine, wishing you easy recovery and much success from your surgery. Funny about your parrot chiming in! Love, Kira

This was such a beautiful class. Every time I practice with you I think, "Aaah..." and then I think, "How can I up my yoga teaching game to this level?" Your classes are such a breath of fresh air. Thank you!
Rachel, thank you so for being here. We were just talking the other day about trusting the teachings, being willing to be a fool for the teachings, and being willing to teach a "bad class" as helpful skills. How is online teaching going for you these days? What is working best for you? What a wild time we are in. xoK

I am teaching one asana class and lots of meditation since going online. It is an interesting challenge! I love the idea of being willing to teach a bad class! Lol! That's usually when the really good classes happen, right? When we let go... Lots of letting go of old "rules" for teaching has been helpful for me because everything is new! Sometimes this is fun, and sometimes it's hard, but it's definitely growth producing. I was thinking how interesting it will be to return to in-person someday to see how different my yoga teaching really is!

Yes, me too, Rachel ! One of my friends wondered if the sensory deprivation we are experiencing is increasing other more subtle senses.  xoK
