NYC Flow

Vinyasa Flow | By Dice Iida-Klein on Dec 05 2011
A flow inspired by my recent trip to NYC. Big thanks to Philip Askew and David Regelin for being amazing teachers! Starting with a few shoulder openers, we make our way through Surya A into a repeated flow that opens our legs and hips. Making our way through pigeon prep, we play around with jumping in and out of our hip opener into handstand pike, chair and bakasana. To top it all off, we finish with a few backbends, a forward fold and some twists. Practice on my fellow yogis!

    Awesome class. I want everyone I know to practice your classes to see how good they are. 5am home practice in Newcastle Australia. Thank you!

    What a workout! I feel completely stretched and got a good sweat in as well! Thanks, Dice!

    @Samantha - It's nice to work the legs beyond what we think we're capable of...but in the same light, definitely listen to your body and back off when needed! A nice burn is quite nice though, I must say so myself :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Jan 11th, 2012
    @Sarah - Glad I could share with yogis in New Zealand! Keep on practicing my fellow yogi :)
  • Samantha Stevens     Jan 3rd, 2012
    Woah, my legs have never burned this much before in my yoga practice. Love, love, loved it!
  • Sarah Hon     Jan 2nd, 2012
    Dice, I’m loving your classes – especially your insightful instructions into, during and out of poses, while still maintaining the momentum of the class. Awesome! Namaste, from Aotearoa New Zealand.

    @Karen - Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Ryah - You're welcome. Thanks for practicing with me!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    Natasja - You're welcome and thanks!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Crystal - LOL. I hope you made it up the stairs alright!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Lana - I hear you! I needed to give the cue to "lengthen the low back by engaging bandhas and taking the back of the pelvis to the heels and the front of the pelvis to the chest. Then it should be all good!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Annette - I'm glad you liked it :) Keep on practicing my fellow yogi!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Catriona - You're welcome!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Matt - Great! Handstands are a must my friend :) More to come for sure!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Lisa - You're welcome!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Patti - You're welcome. Always trying to change it up :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Bernadette - Thank you! Glad you liked it!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Isabella - Exactly! Glad you enjoyed the practice :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Denis - You are so right my fellow yogi. But, what works for some, won't work for others. I never want to force anyone into anything. I think the most important part of our practice is to listen to our bodies and if something isn't good, we move on. With some body awareness, landing in pigeon prep from a little hangtime will be like jumping from downdog to the top of the mat. I'm sorry this practice didn't work for you...but I know there a bunch of highly qualified and amazing teachers here on the Glo!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Dec 18th, 2011
    @Huda - Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it :)
  • Ryah Dekis     Dec 13th, 2011
    thank you!
  • Tasja Fox     Dec 12th, 2011
    Great fun thanks Dice!
  • Crystal Gray     Dec 9th, 2011
    The only bad part about that class is that I practice in my basement yoga room and now I have to walk up a flight of stairs! ;) Thanks!!
  • Lana Russo     Dec 9th, 2011
    (and that's just my silly opinion, maybe because it was drilled into me when i did training!) LOL
  • Lana Russo     Dec 9th, 2011
    I loved it all except for knees, chest, chin...only because I feel that really pushes a lot of students into the low back; many students have the awareness and know better but some don't. A very cool class as a whole!
  • Annette Taylor     Dec 7th, 2011
    Dice.....Just did this class this morning and it is my favourite of favourites! I love the preparation at the beginning, the longer holds in poses at first and then combining them into some creative flow sequences. Challenging yet accessible and fun. Love it!
  • Catriona Andrew     Dec 7th, 2011
    Great - unusual and interesting, thank you
  • Matt Cooke     Dec 7th, 2011
    Wonderfully sweaty, and unpredictable practice Dice! I loved it! and keep those handstands coming brother! Thank you!
  • Lisa Hagen     Dec 5th, 2011
    Fun class...tnx Dice!
  • Patti MacPherson     Dec 5th, 2011
    that was fun, different and challenging...thank you Dice for always pushing the edge
  • Bernadette Alvarez Tostado     Dec 5th, 2011
    Nice flow
  • Isabella Allard     Dec 5th, 2011
    An energizing detox with a calming finish* Delicious Dice* Thank you :)

    Jumping into pigeon presents a great risk of tearing ligaments in the knee that you land on, not smart.
  • Huda Mussa     Dec 5th, 2011
    One of my faves
