Greetings and (Sun) Salutations!
This is the beginning part where maybe we say something about... oh I don't know... rounding the corner into the season of blooming flowers and other juicy stuff that should make you wanna get on your yoga mat and get real zen'd out while doing 100 navasana sit-ups. Or how about we just keep on streaming the yoga love? Okay then.
So here are a few highlights of our upcoming FREE live-streaming yoga classes and events. As always, you can see the entire updated live-stream schedule here
, to which, being actual human beings and all, we tend to make occasional changes. So check it!
Sunday April 10, 8:00AM - 9:30AM Pacific Standard Time:FLOW 'N' GOAn intermediate/advanced vinyasa flow class with ANGELA KUKHAHN
A sweet, sweaty flow for those on the go. Angela will keep you breathing, sweating, and flowing in myriad creative and thoughtfully designed sequences, peppering in the occasional playful inversion or arm balance option. Best for those already familiar with basic postures.
Sunday April 10, 2:00PM - 3:30PM Pacific Standard Time:HURTS SO GOOD!An intermediate/advanced vinyasa flow class with ALLY HAMILTON
Heart-opening, ass-kicking, mind-altering, soul-shaking, deep, and sweaty fun. This is Ally Hamilton's signature power vinyasa flow class for all those about to rock...or already rockin'!
Monday April 11, 6:30PM - 8:00PM Pacific Standard Time:ALIGN YOUR ASANA AND FLOW!An all-levels vinyasa flow class with CHARLIE SAMOS
Particular attention paid to proper alignment and solid fundamentals. A good sweaty practice for intermediate or advanced students, but also completely approachable for those new to yoga. Plus, Charlie's iPod playlist can't be beat!
Wednesday April 13, 9:15AM - 10:45AM Pacific Standard Time:HURTS SO GOOD!An advanced vinyasa "inversional" flow class with KRISTA CAHILL
Use your roots to find wings. Expect to spend a lot of time upside down or in arm balances. Bala is a Sanskrit word meaning strength. Therefore, in bala'nce yoga, we use strength to create balance.
Sunday April 17, 4:00PM - 5:30PM Pacific Standard Time:BACK BENDS WORKSHOPA special back-bending workshop with LAUREN PETERSON
Backbends are about dumping the past, unburdening and moving bravely into the unknown. Can you be comfortable with uncertainty? Practicing backbends can help. Deepening backbends is not just about bending the spine. We also need to stretch the hip flexors and shoulders, and open our hearts. We will work within a flow class, and explore how to use some basic postures and stretches, to begin to prepare the body for deeper more challenging poses. Forward bending will finish the workshop, so everyone leaves balanced and happy.
These are just a few. Lots of other great classes for the beginner and advanced yogi alike. Bookmark our upcoming live-streaming yoga schedule

Long holds with emphasis on breathing and alignment. Liberate your shoulders and your hips during this sweaty but mindful flow. The vibe during this class was focused and pretty awesome, we laughed, we cried, we sweat our a$$es off. Join the fun.

March 22, 2011
Hip and shoulder opening warm up sequence, moving into surya namaskara A and B. Once completely warm, class moves deeper into the hip opening standing sequence, then to the floor for some abs and backbends, and more hip opening seated postures.CHARLIE SAMOS - ALIGN YOUR ASANA AND FLOW!
MIXED LEVELS - March 18, 2011
A class designed to challenge your balance. From the warm up sequence, through a sweaty standing sequence, down to the floor, you will have chances to explore the relationship between the core and your ability to balance. After a few backbends and seated poses, a peaceful savasana is the payoff. * mixed levels means that the class is open to all levels, and useful and appropriate for most practitioners. May be a little intense for beginners, though!
