Flowing into Calm

60 min - Practice


There’s a feeling language in the body that yoga helps us connect to. Lydia leads a grounding flow to strengthen the body while encouraging a sense of calm. We begin using the strap to release the legs and connect to the support of the earth. We warm and open the body in creative flows, play with Handstand hops, and move into a seated floor sequence to engage the core and find more space in the front of the legs and hips. We work with Straw Breath throughout this practice to emphasize the exhales and soothe the nervous system. You will feel strong and at ease.
What You'll Need: Mat, Blanket, Strap

I love everything about this practice - the sequence is innovative and integrating, and deeply nourishing for the hips. Your metaphor of being "home" in the body is sweet and profoundly meaningful. Thanks so much, Lydia. :)
Lori C So happy this provided a space for you to nourish yourself Lori! Thanks for letting me know. Warmth, Lydia

Great practice for a cold, rainy day here in New England...as you might imagine, my motivation was pretty low, but I gave this a go and I’m so glad I did 🥰 The cobwebs are swept and the lights are now on 👍 I used a couple of blocks quite a bit for this practice, which made sense for my “home” today ❤️
Jenny S That is such great news Jenny! Blocks are always my friends too. I could see how this practice could be lovely on a cold damp day. Warmth, Lydia

This was amazing for me! I can truly go deeper into my stretches by using my peripheral vision! Still can’t do a hand stand but I’m trying. ❤️ Thank you 
Tonia T That is the best news Tonia! I also feel a profound shift with using peripheral vision. Much love from the Canadian Rockies! Lydia 
Once again, I took this practice sequence in small "bites" - you pack so much creatively sequenced material into this! Brilliant! : )
Kate M So happy this can be a gift that lasts a long time! Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing your experiences with the practices. Warmth, Lydia 
Great practice and thanks for the new breathing technique. I was able to laugh through the harder stretches and poses like you. I agree with the comments, and I am working my way up to the handstand too. Dolphin pose is actually much easier than a few weeks ago.  Loved the core work at the end and how much I pushed myself to stay calmly focused. 

David Goldstein So nice to hear about your practice again. I love imagining you laughing in your explorations of movement and breath! Thanks again for commenting David.
