Ready to soar - 90min Strong
In this practice we work efficiently to build strength and mobility in the upper and lower hemispheres of the body. Progressively building our understanding of the mechanics behind Eka Pada Galavasana aka Flying Pigion Pose. The pose it's self is not easy but we can simplify the path towards taking flight.
Morning sequence for tight bods
This practice is for all you tin men and women out there. If you wake up feeling tight and stiff, then think of this practice as oil for your joints and to warm up your muscles for the day. My aim is to help you move, breathe and live with more ease. So remember throughout, when you feel into tightness, take a few slower mindful breaths.
Props: Yoga blocks if you have them, no worries if not!
The thoracic spine is the longest part of the spine, and is designed more for stability and protection with the entire rib cage attaching at these vertebrae. The thoracic region is a common place where we can become overly stiff and rigid. Our body is always trying to work in the best way possible for us, so often the neck or low back take up the movement where the T spine is limited. This can result in pain or discomfort in these areas, so in working at freeing up the T spine we ease load and pressure off the other regions. Props: Blocks
Lower back health
If you have been feeling discomfort or compression in the low back, this grounded sequence is a great way to bring more ease, space and awareness to your low back health
Props: Block, blanket and strap

Foot activation tutorial
Remember your foot arch doesn't need to be 'high' to be 'good' but it does at what ever high need to be competent. So start slow, it maybe difficult at first to get your brain to connect to moving your foot in specific ways, but keep with it, consistency is key.

Props: Block and strap
Our bodies are complex and fascinating, the body is so intelligent and the nervous system will opt to take the path of least resistance.
