14 Day Yoga Challenge begins October 9th! Are you in?

/ 12:13:00

My 27th birthday is coming up on October 9th and I want to kick it off with a BANG! To celebrate, I've decided to gift myself with two weeks of daily yoga. I'll be doing my 14-Day Yin & Yang Yoga Challenge and I'd LOVE for you to do it with me 

Starting a yoga practice is one thing but maintaining it is a completely different story. One of my biggest struggles is getting on the mat consistently... You'd think this would be easier for me since I'm a yoga teacher but it's really not. Life has a tendency to get in the way!

If you've been in a "yoga rut", this is for you. By combining Yin & Vinyasa yoga in easy to follow 20-30 minute classes, you'll get the boost of inspiration and motivation you need to get back to your regular yoga practice while helping you get stronger, leaner, more flexible and a whole lot calmer!
There are tons of bonuses added to this challenge such as 7 core workouts, an ebook of 100 yoga poses, access to our private facebook group and more!
Since this is starting on my 27th birthday, the challenge is now just $27 (that's 46% off normal price!).  Click the link http://bit.ly/14dayyoga to learn more and join!
Registration and sale ends October 5th. HOPE you'll do this program with me!!  Already purchased this in the past? You get free access!! I'm going to be emailing all past students with a coupon code that let's you sign up for the October 9th start date free of charge

Saying adieu to the Summer, and welcoming in the Fall is a great chance to check in with ourselves and our goals.   In the Spring and Summer we tend to be outgoing and social as well as productive. In the cooler seasons of Fall and Winter we start to turn inwards energetically. This is a time for rejuvenation. A time to bring balance back into our life. To be open to accept the new, and shed that which no longer serves us.

Saying adieu to the Summer, and welcoming in the Fall is a great chance to check in with ourselves and our goals.

In the Spring and Summer we tend to be outgoing and social as well as productive. In the cooler seasons of Fall and Winter we start to turn inwards energetically. This is a time for rejuvenation. A time to bring balance back into our life. To be open to accept the new, and shed that which no longer serves us.

This practice honors that. It is slow flowing as it works through circular processes. It also incorporates balancing poses, forward folds where we get to shed the old (like the trees with their leaves), and hip openers to be receptive of whatever is to come our way next.

These 6 poses are pulled from a 40 minute Fall Equinox practice on my YouTube Channel.

You will require two blocks for support as you root down. You may also want to have a journal handy to jot down the thoughts you stir up in this shifting of the seasons practice.

1. Meditation - Find a comfortable seated pose. Sit tall, find stillness and visualize your self like a tree. The roots of your sit bones press firm anchoring you to the ground. The spine reaches long and upright like the trunk. Raise the branches of your arms up towards the sun, spreading the fingers wide to soak it all in. With each inhale, send it all the way down to your roots. Set yourself an intention, not only for this practice but also for the season. With your next inhale, bring the fingers to touch. As you exhale circle the fingers towards the ground. Inhale up again, continuing in this cyclical motion.

2. Cat and Cow - Set up on hands and knees, shoulder and hip distance respectively. Inhale, dropping the belly, lifting the gaze, and curling the tailbone up. Exhale rounding the spine, chin to chest. Incorporate additional movement by simultaneously pressing the hips all the way back to the heels during the exhale. Take a few more rounds of this.


3. Waving Cobra - Laying on the belly, bring the hands wider than the mat and coming up on to the tips of the fingers. Reach your toes back, feet hip width distance apart. Elbows are bent deeply. As you inhale, ripple the spine all the way up into cobra. As you exhale, lower all the way down to the ground. Repeating this wave several times. Next, bring the palms to the sides of your hips. Push the palms into the ground, lifting up to upward facing dog. From here drop the hips left to right, windshield wiping to and fro a few times.

4. High Lunge to Pyramid Transitions -  From downward facing dog, step the right foot through between the hands. Grab your blocks, setting them up at the highest level, underneath your hands for support. Bend deeply into the right knee, dropping the hips and lifting the gaze. Keep your right knee directly over the ankle. On an exhale shift the hips back, straightening the front leg and folding forward, forehead to shin, as in pyramid pose. With each inhale lunge forward, opening the heart to receive what's to come. With each exhale, fold forward, flushing out that which no longer serves you. Aim to find a comfortable balance between the two, as you repeat this transition a number of times. Be sure to do both sides.

5. Tree Pose - Standing tall towards the front of your mat, bring your feet hip width distance apart. Grounding into the right foot, lift the left foot to the inside of the shin (toes can rest on the ground like a little kick stand), calf, or thigh. Being careful to avoid the knee. Externally rotate the left knee open to the side. Draw the belly in. Bringing the hands to the heart, take a moment to find steadiness where you are. Make circular motions with your arm branches. Inhaling them up overhead, bringing the palms to touch, exhaling them down the center trunk connecting the heart. Switch legs.


6. Pigeon Pose - Time for a longer held hip opener, closing the practice open to all the possibilities the new season brings. First take three-legged dog. Reaching the right foot to the sky, bring your right knee behind the right wrist, toes walk towards the left wrist. Stretch the left leg back behind you. If the right hip is high off the mat, use a block under the glute to keep the pelvis square. Fold forward over your front leg, coming to rest your forehead on a block, your hands or the mat. Breathe here for a comfortable length of time. If you want to take it deeper and integrate a heart opener to be fully receptive as you end your practice, for the final few breaths, lift the chest up as you push the palms into the ground. Alternatively, if it is in your practice, take King Pigeon. Bending the left knee, catching hold of the back foot with the palms. Work here or flip the grip, catching the foot with both hands, opening to the front and breathing into the heart. Repeat on the other side.

I truly hope you found this flushing out the old and welcoming the new, season shifting practice cathartic. If you want to complete the full 40 minute class with me, click through to the video below.



Happy Fall,
Kassandra

Yoga Teacher Training was a life-changing journey for me (I mean, obviously! It started me on this path of making a living teaching what I love). Whether you’re considering Yoga Teacher Training to deepen your personal yoga practice OR to pursue teaching yoga as a career, I wanted to make sure you knew about my friend Brett Larkin’s Uplifted Online Teacher Training program, which I’m also featured and a part of!
If you don't know Brett, she's a fellow Youtube Yoga teacher with a community of over 120,000 subscribers! We've worked together many times over the years and she is a top-notch instructor, I highly recommend her classes to anyone interested in Vinyasa, Kundalini and Hatha yoga.
When Brett first told me about her vision for this program, I was skeptical…
Could Yoga Teacher Training Online really work?
The reality is that modern technology means training to teach online has never been better. It’s: convenient, personalized, and powerful. I’ve met graduates of both her Online 200-YTT and Bridge Program (for Continuing Education). All rave about the sense of community, personalized attention, and high-level of interaction and love she puts into this 4-month, interactive, certification program.
In addition to watching videos at home, students join bi-weekly video calls through their smartphone or computer. Trainees upload photos and videos of their practice to refine each other’s alignment. Everyone receives personalized feedback. Brett’s videos and manual dive into the nuances of anatomy, asana, myofascial release, pranayama, meditation, yoga philosophy, tantra and subtle body systems.
I teach the portion on Yin Yoga with her and it’s awesome!
ALL of this comes with interactive follow-up calls and group discussions to ensure your questions get answered. Students are also divided into intimate weekly study groups. So you have a system of support on this life-changing journey, and brand new friends from all over the world!
If you already hold a 200-hour degree from another school, you can take the course at a reduced rate for Continuing Education through what’s called “The Bridge” program.
Brett’s run this training several times now, and it always sells out months in advance. Current 200-hour online graduates are successfully teaching in yoga studios, gyms — and online. There’s modules on social media, entrepreneurship, and how to grow a yoga business in the digital age. These are the skills sets of the future, even if you work in a traditional studio.
To get detailed info the training (and lots of tips about pursuing YTT in general)sign up here => http://bit.ly/onlineyogatraining
Key Facts:
  • Winter 2018 training begins February 26th 2018. Space is limited.
  • If you already old a 200-Hour degree, you can still take the training, and at a discounted rate.
  • You can train just to deepen your practice. Becoming a teacher is not required.
ALL training details here => http://bit.ly/onlineyogatraining
I LOVED collaborating on this training with Brett. Pending your situation and goals, especially if you have kids, a full-time job, travel a lot or can’t commit to a in-person 200-Hour Training, this program might be the ideal way for you to earn your 200-Hour degree from the comfort of home.
Sign up here to get all the detailed info from Brett, and hope to see you on the mat soon.
Big hugs,
Kassandra

I'm so excited to be sharing this very special practice with you! This slow flow yoga class is in honor of the Autumn equinox and the changing of the seasons. This is a fluid and circular practice to reflect on the cyclical nature of the seasons.

The Fall Equinox falls around September 20-22nd every year and it's my favorite season! Energetically, Fall is the time where we start to turn in. Spring and Summer are a time for us to be outgoing, social and energetic whereas Fall and Winter are a time for us to turn inward, relax, regenerate and reflect.

This Autumn Equinox is your opportunity to bring balance back into our lives. This practice will combine balance poses (to find balance in our lives), forward folds (to let go of frustration and disappointments) and hip openers (to open ourselves to possibilities).

Craft some special time for yourself to do this practice. This is a beautiful time of ritual and if you enjoy honoring the different times of the year, you may enjoy my Lunar Yoga program for women which honors the moon cycles.

Within each of us is a burning desire and our own personal way to find joy in our sexuality!    Unfortunately for most of us women, society has done such a number on us that we just 'can't get no satisfaction'. We find ourselves trying to fit within a neat and tidy little box and questioning whether our orgasms, our sexual preferences, or our bodies are 'normal.' But it's time to break free from the box and unleash the goddess within!   One of the biggest things preventing us from achieving satisfaction in the boudoir is our own ability to feel magnetic, radiant and confident within this beautiful body we are housed! Another major factor is finding ourselves in the rut of our old tried and true sexual patterns in bed.

Within each of us is a burning desire and our own personal way to find joy in our sexuality! 

Unfortunately for most of us women, society has done such a number on us that we just 'can't get no satisfaction'. We find ourselves trying to fit within a neat and tidy little box and questioning whether our orgasms, our sexual preferences, or our bodies are 'normal.' But it's time to break free from the box and unleash the goddess within!

One of the biggest things preventing us from achieving satisfaction in the boudoir is our own ability to feel magnetic, radiant and confident within this beautiful body we are housed! Another major factor is finding ourselves in the rut of our old tried and true sexual patterns in bed.

If you are ready to awaken the goddess within, please join me in attending a 6-week online Masterclass with Layla Martin. Unleash your sexual magnificence, as well as find and stay in your pleasure zone!

Ready to wake up your sexual magnificence? Find the details and register here!  But do hurry, hurry, hurry, as registration closes super soon (September 20th).

Throughout the 6-week session you will:
-Learn to achieve deeply fulfilling orgasms (full-body, breath, and the much sought after multiple orgasm)
- Find your personal desire and what brings you sexual joy
- Get your body to its optimal hormonal, biological and energetic state
-Boost your self confidence
- Break free from the barriers holding you back in bed

Now 6-weeks isn't very long in the scheme of things, so she doesn't promise you will find all the answers to what woahs you in the bedroom within this time, BUT you will be sent on the lifelong path of embracing your sexuality, achieving sensational orgasms, and having a healthy relationship with your beautiful self!

Want to know more about the teacher before committing to 6-weeks of her lessons? I interviewed her for my Soul Purpose series. Find the video below.




Convinced now? Sign up here! Act fast though, this program gets underway in a matter of hours!

Quick caveat, I am an affiliate of this program, so yes I will receive some compensation for having you join, but I became an affiliate because I truly wanted to take this course and have all of my beautiful internet friends learn beside me!  

I do truly hope you will join me on this journey to finding tantric bliss,
Kassandra

When you're short on time and/or on vacation do you A) opt to skip your yoga practice or B) stop, drop and yoga to quickly squeeze in a short flow? I believe consistency is key and 15 minutes is better than nothing when you don't have time for a full class!   That's why I took the opportunity where I had it to run through a quick practice in Florida recently. One MAJOR bonus of #SDY is the gorgeous views that can come with fitting movement in wherever you are.   Lucky for you, I had my camera with me and was able to film it for you. It's shared over on my YouTube channel in its complete (yet short) form. If you head over there, don't forget to subscribe.

When you're short on time and/or on vacation do you A) opt to skip your yoga practice or B) stop, drop and yoga, quickly squeezing in a short flow? I believe consistency is key and 15 minutes is better than nothing when you don't have time for a full class!

That's why I took the opportunity where and when I had it to run through a quick practice in Florida recently. One MAJOR bonus of #SDY is the gorgeous views that can come with fitting movement in wherever you are.

Lucky for you, I had my camera with me and was able to film it for you. It's shared over on my YouTube channel in its complete (yet short) form. If you head over there, don't forget to subscribe.

No props, or even necessarily a yoga mat, required. Just wear something you can move in and you're good to go.

1. Malasana (Yogi Squat) - Turn your heels in and toes out. Sink the hips down low, it's not necessary to get the heels all the way to the ground. Use your elbows to press the knees open wider. Let the hips sink down and lengthen out of your low back. Take a moment to connect to your breath here before you start to flow.

2. Ragdoll Fold - Take the feet wider (at least than the hips). Straighten the legs as you stand, you can keep the knees bent. Hinge forward, relaxing the upper back, shoulders, neck and head. Clasp opposite elbows, and rock gently side to side.


3. Goddess Pose Sequence - Keep the feet wide and toes out as you come to stand, bringing the hands to the thighs. Bend into the knees and sink the hips, finding goddess pose. Drop the right shoulder down and pull the left shoulder back to take a quick twist. Then switch sides. Return to the center, interlacing the fingers in front of you and reaching the arms up over head. Squeeze the glutes to press the knees open wider and sink deeper. Release the hands, and interlace the fingers behind the back, straightening the legs as you extend the arms behind you, and coming into a forward fold.

4. Low Lunge - Make your way into downward dog to start. From there step the right foot through between your hands and drop the left knee to the mat (or sand). Align the right knee with the right ankle. Bring the hands to the hips. Ground the tailbone down and lengthen the spine. If accessible, take a quad stretch by bending the back knee and reaching back to clasp the foot with the hands. Rise up, opening the heart, meanwhile keeping the core engaged.

5. Warrior Sequence - Lift the back knee up, spinning the back heel down to the ground and toes open towards the side. Bend into the front knee, pressing it open so it stays in line with the middle toes. Arms extend long front to back into Warrior 2. Flip the palms toward the sky, and reverse your warrior by reaching the front hand up and over. Return to Warrior 2. Interlace the fingers behind the back and hinge forward inside of the front thigh. Reach the fingers skyward coming into Humble Warrior. Relax the head, neck and shoulders as you hold here.

6. Gecko Pose - Return to your low lunge, but step the right foot to the outside of the right hand. Drop the right knee out to the side. If it is okay to do so, you may opt to come down onto the forearms here, or simply stay up on palms. Melt the hips forward and down. Again here there is the option to take a quad stretch, by reaching the right hand back to clasp hold of the left foot as it kicks upward. If you have hold of the back foot, pull the heel in towards the glutes.

Repeat 4 through 6 on the opposite side.

I suggest following these poses/sequences up with a vinyasa flow of your choice, a wide-legged child's pose, and/or a reclined spinal twist, and of course savasana.

Hey yogis, I was in Florida recently and the stormy sky behind me was so pretty I decided to film an impromptu beach flow. This is a short Vinyasa Flow to stretch your hips and hamstrings when you're on the go, it also makes for a great quick morning yoga practice. Some of the poses include Goddess, Warrior 2, Humble Warrior, Reclined Pigeon and Frog pose! No props required. Enjoy :) Thanks for watching, please remember to subscribe! Kassandra
