YOGA & MEDITATION
programs & CLASSES
For more a decade, Glo has been my virtual teaching and practice home, streaming high caliber classes, programs, teaching and sequencing. Spending many days and weeks mapping and preparing for my Glo classes, my aim is to offer you a strengthening, enriching personal practice in your own space.
Release Doubt Flow
Shift your thoughts, release doubt, and open your mind. This energizing Vinyasa flow includes breathwork and a strong standing sequence to restore your mood. Practice Lunge variations, Warrior III, Dog Split, and Sun Salutations before moving to the floor for backbends, forward folds, and ab work.
Digestive Clarity Hatha
Use your breath with various twists, hip-openers, and thoughtful sequences of standing postures to help you process, digest, and release anything constricting you, whether it’s food, emotions, or thoughts. Highlights include a steady breath count throughout, Sun Salutations, Half Moon, Revolved Triangle, and Pigeon Pose.
Self Care for Yoga Teachers
As a teacher, it’s easy to let your personal practice slide. However, it’s vital to replenish the energy you give to your students, and continually evolve the guidance that you share with the world. This program was designed to provide yoga teachers with an efficient and effective method of daily self-care. Featuring nurturing movement and focused introspection, you’ll take time to experience yoga just for yourself, and amplify the wisdom of your inner voice. Reconnect with all the reasons you find joy and meaning in this practice, so you can use that energy to elevate your teaching.
Strength and Calm
Feel both strong and calm as you move through your practice and your day. This easeful, well-rounded flow will help to open and cultivate support in the body while quieting the mind.
Pose Goals: Let Your Lotus Bloom
Since sitting for meditation was one of the original goals of yoga, you might say that all poses lead to lotus. With a form resembling the flower, padmasana grounds and stabilizes the body, allowing the mind to blossom. This program offers three challenging and dynamic sequences that lead into lotus in unique ways. While the full expression of this advanced posture may not be attainable for everyone, the journey toward it is well worth the while. Like the flower it resembles, which grows in muddy waters, padmasana requires patience and perseverance before it can bloom.
Warming The Body
Warm and open your body while quieting your mind with sun salutes and variations, twists, side planks, vajrasana, and a pigeon quad stretch. This class makes for an efficient, efficacious warm-up for any activity at any time of day.
Exhausted to Energized Flow
Stimulate energy throughout your body to dissolve fatigue, feel uplifted, and rebalance your being state. Open with baby backbends, connecting with your breath, then briskly flow through ab work and a twisted Lunge Vinyasa with Side Plank and Wild Thing that leads into Forward Bend variations.
Soften Into Sleep
Create an ambiance for deep rest in this meditation that supports you in falling asleep with ease. Begin by setting an intention to soften tension in your whole being, then follow a body scan, build awareness of your breath, and enjoy long silences as you surrender to sleep. This meditation is narrated and co-written by Elena Brower and designed by Glo’s Yoga & Meditation Expert, Sara Ivanhoe, M.A
Meditation for Energy
Balance and refine your energy, so it resonates in harmony with your intentions and aspirations. This program is for anyone who would love to establish a consistent meditation practice that encourages physical vibrance, mental clarity, and emotional stability. Each class will begin with a simple breathing practice to help quiet and focus your mind before a gentle, guided meditation. You’ll learn to identify and direct the currents of energy in your body, so you can calibrate them for confidence in anything you do.
Invite a feeling of steady, well-rounded readiness in your body as you start your day. Practice lengthening your inhalations as you move through a sequence including sun salutations, three rounds of energy-clearing breath of fire, pigeon, and bow, then rest in savasana with the feeling that every cell is alert, awake, and aware.
