Day 12: Unwinding Tension

60 min - Practice


To love where you are right now - that’s the advanced practice. In Day 12, Arturo leads a gentle class to help us let go of tension and find safety and freedom in the body. We explore familiar poses and longer holds with the support of a chair to find release in the jaw, neck, shoulders, and hips, and use self-massage to loosen and nourish the feet and legs. You will feel open and easeful.
What You'll Need: Mat, Chair, Blanket (2), Block


Great stretch for my neck. I’ll use ‘smushing circles’ for next weeks zoom class for seniors. Thanks

I really appreciate the reflections upon the diversity in our bodies. It reminds us that flexibility is not better than stability; that we have to listen to what our body most needs. Also loved the comment about us not just being eye-balls and fingertips and that the body has ways of reminding us!

Also, the jaw release is so useful. I have used it a couple of times since this class.

Thank you so much. I am 72 and I really appreciate your knowledge of the older body, especially, the soulders

This 60+ body really loved this yoga session and I'm so glad Alana made me want to try one of your classes, Arturo.  Thanks so much for putting a little New Orleans spin on yoga!
