The Hour of Power

Hatha | By Steven Espinosa on Jul 26 2012
Your yoga mat is a place where you can come and reclaim your power after a long day at work! A gradual opening warm up leads into a strong Standing Pose Flow with Warrior 2, Triangle and Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana). Followed by Inversions with L-Pose and/or Handstand at the wall. Also includes a demonstration of L-Pose for beginners. Continues with Hip Openers, Thigh and Hamstring stretch. Followed by a series of Seated Poses and concludes with Back Bends, Spinal Twist and brief Savasana.

    Hello Steven. Thanks for another great class. Do you have a suggestion for an alternate to the runner's stretch? I have plantar fasciitis & both heels are very tender.
    • Steven Espinosa     Aug 1st, 2012
      Hi Nicole! Thanks for the nice note. Yes, when in runners stretch you can try placing a blanket or something soft underneath your heel for padding. Or you can modify with another hamstring stretch such as laying on your back with a your leg extended up. That will remove the weight bearing on your heel. Hope that helps! Steven.
