Create the Best Year Ever

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Dec 31 2012
New Years Eve is a powerful time to ceremoniously let go of the old, welcome the new and set intentions for creating your best year ever!  The first part of this class is steeped with opportunity to reflect, honor and release old energy.  Try reverence vinyasas simple kneeling heroes pose to cobra (vajrasana to bhujangasana) and detox sun salutations (surya namaskar with crescent variation).  Next, build heat, sweat your prayers and twist out the old. The second part of the class is an abundance flow for inviting in loving & joyful energy for the New Year.  Dancing flow through externally rotated postures warrior 2, extended side angle pose, triangle, half moon & tree (virabhadrasana 2, utthita parsvakonasana, ardha chandrasana & vrksasana).  Interesting postures include root pose & side plank with hand to big toe (mulabhandasana & utthita hasta pada vasistasana). Finally, set your intension (sankalpa) with a 30 min yoga nidra.  Blessings for your BEST YEAR EVER!

    Words can't fully express my gratitude to you for this beautiful practice. Tears of sadness, reflection, fear and then joy as it came to me that this is the year that I have the power in me to cultivate my dreams and to support and celebrate with others as they realise theirs. Thankyou for sharing the gift of yoga through your deeply touching teachings. May your dreams for 2014 be realised too. Namaste from Scotland. X

    Yikes Jo! Now you've gone and made me comment again! Absolutely indulging in your classes right now. "Start here" was like a nourishing soup for the soul & now this class . . . an incredibly decadent, multi layered, cherry on top dessert. You truly have such a beautiful, generous energy that is a real gift to me right now. Somehow you are so gentle and yet also manage to pierce into something wonderfully transforming. Can't wait to see what you do in the new year! Loads of gratitude and blessings all the way from Australia. Namaste!!
    • Jo Tastula     Jan 2nd, 2013
      Ha! You leave the best comments Kim. I'm so happy to soak up your delicious words. Please keep them coming!!! I'm deeply honored to be in the position where I can share the teachings of yoga from this wide reaching platform. Sending you love and support with what ever is going on in your life right now, and sweet blessings for the new year. Koala hugs to you xo
  • Nicole Pasternak     Dec 31st, 2012
    What a lovely way to finish off 2012! Thank you, Jo, for such a wonderful practice! I was actually looking for a yoga nidra class and couldn't find one on yogaglo (perhaps I didn't look hard enough or in the right category), so that was such a pleasant ending/gift to a well-rounded and thoughtful class. Happy New Year to you and to all!
    • Jo Tastula     Jan 2nd, 2013
      Happy New Year Nicole!! There should a few more yoga nidra's coming up soon. So stay tuned. They will probably be posted in the STYLE category under MEDITATION. I want to wish YOU a beautiful year ahead and abundant health and happiness to all of your family xo
