Afternoon Flow and Stretch Yoga

PRESENTER: Kim Daglen   WORKSHOP: Afternoon Flow and Stretch

Balance out your day of heavy hooping with a yoga asana flow designed to reinvigorate and stretch the body and soul. This all-levels class will begin with a short pranayama (breathing exercise) to center us in our breath and bring the focus inward. We will then warm up the body and get the blood flowing with a few rounds of sun salutations (Surya Namaskar) and a series of standing postures. In the second half of class we will focus on stretching out soar muscles by opening up through the neck, shoulders, spine, hips, and hamstrings. During final relaxation you are encouraged to relax completely in shavasana (corpse pose) and effortlessly enter into a deep quietude and stillness. Hopefully, by the end of class, you will feel restored, rejuvenated, and ready to rock out your hoop for the rest of the weekend!

My deep gratitude for all the blessings that yoga and movement practices, such as hooping, have bestowed on my life is what inspires me to share this gift through teaching and participating in the community of meditative movers. I began practing yoga over 16 years ago and have been influenced by various schools of yoga such as Sivananda, Jivamukti, Bikram, Ashtanga, and Power Yoga. With a total of 800-hours of teacher training (500-hour Sivananda certified hatha instructor and 300-hour Jivamukti certified Vinyasa instructor) I bring a great deal knowledge and experience to my instruction. I discovered hooping only a few years ago at music festival in a hoop workshop taught by Nyeli!
