Focus and Freedom

60 min - Practice


Yoga is an exploration of staying a little in a place and noticing what you see. Lydia leads a slow and steady flow to bring focus and freedom in the body and mind. We begin in a warming sequence to help us inhabit the strength of the legs and open the side body and hips. We play into standing balancing poses to find buoyancy in the foundation and freedom in the upper body, find seated twists and expand into the spaciousness we created, and explore rocking into Plow pose. You will feel stable and centered.

I'm enjoying Lydia's classes so much! Her style is refreshing and simplistic. I always feel that I got what I needed and was able to tune inward.
Lindsay W Thanks Lindsay. That is the best news. Warmth, Lydia 
Hola Lydia,
Thank you so much for sharing this practice. Lots of quirky unexpected  little variations actually had me breaking a sweat and trembling at points- in the best way possible. How lovely!
Have a beautiful day!
Michelle F  Great news to hear this morning Michelle! Love and peace back, Lydia 
  It's cool how all of us can find teachers on YogaAnytime with whom we can push our capabilities. Example: I almost lifted both legs off the ground after we raised our hips!!! 

The attention to "seeing" and to finding calm is something I love in a practice just like this one. It's hard but it's also really meditative. 

Once again my cat Cassidy decided to snuggle into my Savasana, lying on my stomach and kneading my upper thighs with her super sharp nails. Nail cutting is scheduled for later.  

Have a great Canadian Thanksgiving too! 
David Goldstein Sounds like you found have had a sweetly balanced practice David. Loving your reflections always, and how your cat likes savasana too. Warmth, Lydia 
This is one of my favorite classes. Thank you, Lydia!
