The idea of doing a handstand (or even a half handstand) can seem very challenging, maybe even impossible to people who have not practiced this before. However, in Yoga, as in daily life, it is not brute strength that is required but the correct technique and a healthy dose of self-confidence! This exercise strengthens the […]

Immune System Boost Challenge (9 mins)

Sometimes we have the best of intentions, but our doubts get the better of us: we fear that we are not good enough, or that the practice is too much for us, so we invent a million excuses.

The Kaplavati Challenge (7 mins)

For a will-power boost try this powerful 5-minute breathing exercise!

The Dog Plank Challenge (6 mins)

Downward dog??? Again??? Yes, that’s right! There is a reason this pose is so fundamental to many types of Yoga: not only does it stretch and strengthen the entire body, but it calms and balances the mind.
