What does FREEDOM mean to you?

/ 09:51:00
Hey yogis, hope you've all had a wonderful week!
Yesterday I posted a new flow on my channel that focuses on flexibility. This is a quick 10 minute sequence you can do every day to reach your flexibility goals!
If you enjoy it please make sure to give the video a thumbs up and leave a comment :) It goes a long way to help support free yoga on the internet!
Today is the New Moon, the last one of 2018. Can you believe it? We are about to wrap up a full year!
Over in my Lunar Yoga community the New Moon marks the beginning of a new theme. We set an intention around that theme by doing a yin yoga practice, guided affirmation meditation and journaling exercise.
The theme we are beginning today is Freedom.
Freedom can be interpreted in many different ways, but what does it mean to YOU?
The New Moon yin yoga practice will help you look at freedom through 3 different lenses: physical, emotional and spiritual.
  • The physical lens of freedom is all about the freedom (or lack of it) in the concrete material world. This is your ability and willingness to provide for yourself, travel, make decisions, celebrate your body and go for what you want.
  • The emotional lens looks at the freedom within your relationships with others and self. Are you able to express your feelings? Can you set boundaries? Do you have the trust and freedom you need in your relationships in order to thrive?
  • Finally the spiritual lens is all about your freedom to believe. Are you free to explore your spirituality and express your beliefs? Do you feel connected and part of something greater?
If this theme resonates with you and you'd like to work on it for the next 4 weeks with the support of a global community, I would be honored to have you join us.
See you on the mat!
Let's Stay In Touch!

Many of you here are advanced practitioners or even yoga teachers yourself. You don't want to listen to someone talk the whole time, you already know the cues. But, you want a fresh flow to keep things from getting stale on the mat and falling in to your same old routine.

For that I bring you another one of my minimal cues yoga classes. The following simply outlines the poses used in this 35 minute practice. No bells, no whistles, no alignment cues.

This is an intermediate practice when it comes to poses, but it is more advanced in needing to know the proper alignment all on your own.

The full flow on YouTube walks you through with simply the names of the poses. If you do want the visual cues you can head over there.

Hi yogis, welcome to my channel! Today I'm offering you a 35 minute yoga practice with minimal verbal cues ideal for Yoga Teachers or experienced students. I already have two of these classes on my channel and you guys have been asking me to make more.

Minimal cues means that I won't be giving you any alignment tips in this class or breathing instructions, I'll only be naming the poses. This is why this yoga flow is best suited for more experienced yoga practitioners. You'll need to know how to modify poses yourself. The sequence is intermediate level.
I love doing online yoga classes myself but as a teacher I don't always want to listen to the other teacher explain every single thing about a pose. Sometimes it's nice to just be guided in your practice and make room for silence to make it a meditative practice!





 Namaste,
Kassandra
