Stretching and Restorative Yoga for Everyone

Relax and rejuvenate with this easy stretching and restorative video. Cyndi guides you through a practice perfect for at the end of the day, when you feel tired but want to move enough to get the kinks out and invite the breath in. The restorative section of this video shows you how to do the poses using ordinary items you have around the house as props.

Finding Stillness

Yoga is not just a practice, it is a state of being--a state in which the agitation of the mind is resolved. Most of us live with a level of chronic tension from our thoughts, whether we are worried about the future or dissecting some comment or event from the past. This practice has been designed to bring you into a state of greater stillness and presence, and to develop freedom from your thoughts: the ability to notice your thoughts without feeling agitation.

Asana as Meditation: Balancing Effort and Ease

Postures become a meditation when our focus goes inside and we build the capacity to explore what arises with compassion and acceptance. This has the power to transform us from patterns that keep us in pain and suffering. As we become aware of the habits of mind and body through a meditative approach to movement, we create change within ourselves. That in turn becomes a way to change our relationship with our world to cultivate greater peace and happiness. The postures included in this practice are a balance of relaxation, stretching, strengthening, all led with internal focus and awareness.
