When our home becomes our office, the workday can suddenly feel fraught with distractions. Then, when it’s time to switch gears, we can’t properly pull our attention away. From kids and pets to the dishes in the sink, and an endless stream of notifications, it’s no wonder our minds are all over the place. This collection is designed to support you when you feel scattered—to help you cut through the mental clutter and focus on the task at hand.

Learn to cultivate a one-pointed focus on the experience of your feet making contact with the earth. Practice this moving meditation outside or wherever you have some space to walk. As we practice increasing our awareness, we can learn the skill of truly listening to our bodies, then apply this heightened awareness to any task throughout the day.
It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the things you have to do in your busy life. Use this class to eliminate distractions and tune into what your body actually needs. Start with pranayama to clear your mind, then create staying power with core work. You'll wring out tension with twists, encourage circulation with backbends, and release yourself into hip openers before concluding with a centering savasana. Props Suggested: A block.
Just like any physical workout, your yoga practice can become routine. Step out of your comfort zone and practice holding poses just a little longer than usual. Dig deeper into your strength and practice a series of postures that include warrior II, extended side angle and chair, moving on to plank holds and crow to help sharpen your focus and increase determination. You'll build greater strength and stamina with this fun class.
There is a powerful saying that says, if you master your mind, you master the world. In this meditation, use a simple breath focus with a mudra. The power of the practice comes from learning to direct the stream of your mind. Practice regularly to sharpen the arrow of your mind so you may pierce through the surface layers into the 'brahm kaal', the space beyond time, where all knowledge lies. Great practice to help move your mind from a frantic state to calm and stability. Props Suggested: A blanket.
A well-rounded 10 minute sequence you can do at your desk to reverse the adverse affects of being seated for long periods of time. Includes hip openers, seated twists, shoulder and neck openers, forward bends, wrist strengtheners and a breathing exercise.
Bring steadiness to your body and mind preparing for and practicing inversions. Slow sun salutations to warm up and open your body. Followed by standing pose inversions and a series of forward folds sprinkled throughout. Handstands at the wall or in the middle of the room put this practice into action. A headstand gathers your concentration fully, before finishing with a seated twist and forward fold to release your back. Savasana to conclude. Props Suggested: A block and wall space.
