2022 

12:00-1:15 pm EST / 9:00-10:15 am PST

Please join Jennifer Brilliant and Margi Young for a fresh exploration of yoga poses with imagery, meditation, and breath to illuminate our subtle and anatomical bodies. This series, examining the winds (Vayus) in the body, will explore ideas from classical yoga to find how relevant they are today as tools to navigate our daily life. You will emerge from these classes with wonder and delight about existing in your human body.

  • Everyone is welcome.
  • You are encouraged to attend all three classes, but also welcome to join a single class.
  • If you can’t make one of the classes in real time, you’ll receive the recording.

Yoga Moves You with Jennifer Brilliant and Margi Young

Class One – Saturday, January 8: Feet and Head

In this class we will:

  • Practice a sequence of yoga poses that explore the sensations of energy that moves us up (Prana) and down (Apana).
  • Enjoy images that illustrate anatomical points about our head, feet and beyond.
  • Go upside down, using our head as a foundation while our feet rise up!
  • Practice 3 Part Breath (Viloma which is sanskrit for ‘against the grain’).
  • Meditate on being content, as we are in both ups and downs.

Class Two – Saturday, January 15: Core

In this class we will:

  • Share our perspective on the definition of core along with some visual images.
  • Revisit some of the yoga poses from week 1 with a fresh emphasis on our core.
  • Notice if, how and where downward and upward meet (Samana). Find both the ability to express ourselves and find stillness in our throats, neck and head (Udana).
  • Practice Breath of Fire (Bhastrika) and Shining Skull Breath (Kapalabhati) to activate the naval center as well as Chin Lock (Jalandhara Bandha) to bring awareness to the throat.
  • Rest the core with a guided relaxation.

Class Three – Saturday, January 22:  Whole Body

In this class we will:

  • Begin with a meditation that circles back to the winds in the body and then brings awareness to our whole self.
  • Build heat, and coax the distribution of energy throughout our entire system (Vyana).
  • Invert turning the whole body upside down into handstand
  • Create newfound awareness of the potential of our body and mind to unfold within our capacity.
  • Be inspired to feel our full, human experience in life
