CLICK TO BEGIN!

Welcome to your Air Element Yoga Class to Open Your Heart & Expand Your Capacity.

 

This yoga class embodies the energy of the heart chakra through a chest & breath centric sequence! Step on the mat with me to expand your capacity as we work through spinal flexion and extension in postures like cat and cow, sphinx and cobra, then build to strong postures like sun salutation variations, warrior I, humble warrior and camel pose. Finally, complete your experience with a chest opening savasana variation to integrate & bring full relaxation.

 

This is your yoga class to connect with the breath, open the chest and expand your capacity to face the world and trust your heart’s desires.

Feeling defeated by the state of the world? Possibly closed off with your shoulders rounding forward? Struggling to hear and trust your heart’s desires? 

 

Then this is your yoga class to counteract ALL OF THE ABOVE and expand your ability to face adversity and make choices that are in alignment with your heart.

 

It’s cleansing, strong, supportive and healing… basically all the ingredients one needs to return to their center, feel inner peace and remember that their heart has a say in the matter. 

 

When working with the air element, I choose to approach it through the lens of the chakra system, which brings us to anahata, or the heart chakra, because the element here is air. 

 

The heart chakra’s purpose is to cultivate love and healthy relationships; these relationships include yourself, your inner circle, the community and humanity at large. 

 

And like my momma always tells me, relationships are steeped in compromise. Compromise requires a give and take, a balance of masculine and feminine energy, and a relationship of reciprocity. 

 

When we look at the yoga framework, the breath (or air element) connects to the fourth limb within the system called pranayama, which translates to the extension and expansion of your vitality or life force energy. 

 

To create this extension and expansion we tap into the power of the breath and manipulate it to create a positive, balancing effect. Each inhale and exhale represents a relationship of reciprocity, the give and take, the yin and yang energies that are present in everything. 

 

When you feel defeated, like your current circumstances can’t possibly be worked through… 

 

Or your mind’s become so deafeningly loud that you can’t possibly hear your heart… 

 

This is when your breath and heart matter most. 

 

We can turn to the air element and heart chakra teachings to return to our center. 

 

The center… where we’re most balanced, steady and collected. The center where we lead from the heart, self-regulate in times of adversity and hardship, and feel a sense of openness, acceptance and expansion.

It’s a beautiful, meaningful and powerful space to live and lead from, and yet, most of us need help with how to even begin.

 

This is your invitation friend. 

 

Come join me for an air element yoga class to connect with your breath, open your heart and expand your capacity. 

 

I promise by the end you’ll have a direct connection with what your heart wants and how to live and lead from there. 

 

Unroll your mat, bring your heart, let’s move and breathe together. 

 

Oh, and please remember to comment on the YouTube video with WHAT MY HEART WANTS MATTERS to let me know you’re part of our yoga family. 

 

All my heart,
