The Golden Hour

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Dec 12 2011
The 'golden hour' for yoga is definitely first thing in the morning when the mind is quiet and impressionable. Set the tone for your day with this medium intensity flow.  Class includes meditation, intention setting, core work, standing flow and backbends.  If you want savasana please take a little extra time for that on your own. Have a beautiful day!

  • Jennifer Riley     Nov 14th, 2013
    Jo this is such a favourite class that I keep returning to. There can be more than one golden hour a day. Sometimes I jump I to it mid-afternoon And use this class to reset my vibe. A new day dawned and a fresh start. Very grounding and meditative. Thank you. Jx
    • Jo Tastula     Feb 13th, 2014
      You're so right Jennifer. Every hour has the potential to be a golden hour. It's just a shift in perspective. Thank you xo

    Thank you Jo.
    • Jo Tastula     Feb 13th, 2014
      THANK YOU FOR SUCH A GLOWING COMMENT ZANNA! WITH LOVE ~
  • Jame Bloom     Mar 18th, 2013
    Thank you for your many gifts of teaching...your style, and seamless integration of body, mind, and spirit resonate so much. You inspire both my personal and and teaching practice to share with others; your sequences illicit a strong emotional release. I also enjoy the tone and energy of your voice. I was curious why that was your first upward dog in a year? I find the transition to upward dog challenging to the lumbar spine and wondering why you opt for cobra instead?

    Namaste,
    Jane from New Mexico
    • Jo Tastula     Feb 13th, 2014
      Hi Jame ~ thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave your thoughts. I let go of urdhva mukha svanasana for a good year or so because I wanted to give my lower back a break. I do that every so often. Eliminate certain postures if I feel they have become tired, automatic or stressful. Currently it's now 2 years without shoulder stand :) It's amazing when you start to reintroduce them back into your practice. So much new found awareness and sensitivity.
  • Michelle Duffy     Mar 4th, 2013

    Thank you Jo - I too enjoy the shorter practices that I can do before work. This was just right!
  • Tori Richmond     Dec 16th, 2011
    Loved this so much! As a mother of a young baby I find I have to turn the longer classes off more times than not. Which leaves me feeling disappointed, as well as incomplete. It is so nice to feel I got an entire, though short, class. More 30 minutes please Jo!

    Thank you, Jo. Always feel amazing after your classes. Love the shorter classes- so busy these days! Although the class was short, it felt very complete and was a wonderful way to become mindful and energized for the day.
  • Erica Struble     Dec 12th, 2011
    Short on time this morning, so wanted to find a shorter, but all encompassing practice. Thank you, Jo. This is just what I wanted. I'm ready to face the day! Om shanti.

  • Jo Tastula     Dec 12th, 2011
    @ Satu ~ Good morning Satu! I have been doing cobra over up dog which helps to keep the lower back long and isolates the backbend in the upper back. But sometimes when I feel warm I'll go all the way... woo hoo!
  • yogagal      Dec 12th, 2011
    Lovely golden hour. Thank You
  • Patricia Barrett     Dec 12th, 2011
