Yoga for Menopause: Cool Down, Chill Out

Yoga for Menopause: Cool Down, Chill Out

for Hot Flashes, Irritability, & Anxiety Plus it’s Wrist Friendly

If everything bugs you, you’re hot, cranky, and just don’t wanna, it’s time to Cool Down & Chill Out with Yoga for Menopause. 
This no standing, gentle, cooling practice helps shut out outside stress.

When irritability, anxiety, hot flashes, and excess energy creep in, a cooling practice, like this one, is way more effective in soothing your symptoms than an active, heating yoga flow.  

Longer holds allow you to not only connect with your breath and feel more grounded but to SLOW DOWN. 
It’s so important to let the nervous system settle when we feel frazzled. 

👉 Even if you’re NOT menopausal but you’re feeling cranky, irritable and need a personal “time out”,
this practice is just what you need.

👉 Grab a Blanket or Large Towel and roll it up.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.  
🖐 Wrist Friendly means little or no pressure on the wrists but gripping and grabbing are possible.

More about this practice:

 Crocodile Pose starts you off bringing you inward for reflection and to literally and figuratively shut out the outside stressors.  
There’s Heart opening for compassion for yourself and for others.
Gentle Hip openers because who doesn’t love a good hip opener?
Some Sitali pranayama to cool off our mouths, minds, and throats (in case some not-so-nice words came out recently).  
A super calming restorative pose…you’ll have to do the practice to find out what it is…
finished with savasana…ahhh, savasana.    

All in about 20 minutes. 

Affirmations in this video:

💚 My heart overflows with compassion and kindness for myself and others 💚
💚 I breathe in calmness and breathe out stress  💚
💚 I relax my body and breathe in calm energy  💚
💚 Right now, all is well in my world 💚
Repeat it until you believe it.

Enjoy! Be well.
 Remember to breathe.
🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼

Finding Balance – 35 min Vinyasa Yoga

Inversion Free Options

Feeling out of balance?
No fear! Vinyasa Yoga is here to help you find balance. 😆
We’ll not only work on balance poses but balance in the breath
and balance within opposing energies—a little yin/yang action.

✨ All levels welcome.
I’ll be doing this inversion free but you do you.
✨ Grab props for an inversion free practice: blocks, bolster, pillows, blankets, etc.

There will be the obvious balance poses like tree pose, warrior 3, and half moon balance. But there will also be evenly timed inhales and exhales AND opportunities to experience opposing energy like being grounded in the lower body but light and lifted in the upper body.
Balance will also creep in while we make sure the right side and the left side get equal love.

  Enjoy! Be well. 
  Remember to breathe.

Post Covid Yoga – 30 min

Pranayama and Yin Yoga to Support Lung Health.

Another wonderful request for a class…

If you have Covid, are post covid, or have some other respiratory illness to recover from, this Post Covid Yoga practice supports lung health with 3 types of pranayama to increase your oxygen.

Even if you don’t have the ‘vid, this class is fabulous for slowing down this holiday season and taking some time for self-care. The more you care for yourself, the more you can care for others.

There are no standing poses and this class uses gentle asana with 1 min Yin Yoga holds focused on opening the chest and rib areas.

This can easily be done in bed if you’re not feeling well enough to move onto your mat. Just use your pillows as your supportive props.

As you move through this class, if you become tired or out of breath — stop. Take as long as you need to rest and come back to it when you feel ready.

FYI—I’ll be performing this practice Inversion Free but you do you.

👉 Grab some props; Blocks, Bolster, Pillows, Blankets, etc.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.
