Naked Ballet Exercises 1: Arm and Leg Positions (
Level: Intermediate)

NakedYogaSchool.com (
Level: Intermediate)
In this brief video, we will go over a few concepts that are crucial to understanding ballet. We will go over the arm and leg positions, and proper posture. It is much more worthwhile to focus on doing a movement correctly to one's best ability, rather than forcing turn-out or bigger movements. Start small, and increase strength and range of motion gradually. Complete beginners are advised to take a beginner ballet class, since a teacher trained in ballet will pick up on any misalignments or incorrect positioning that a beginner may not recognize.

Naked Ballet Exercises 2
 (Level: Intermediate)

nakedyogaschool.com (Level: Intermediate)

In this video, we will go over a few ballet concepts that focus on strengthening and building better technique and balance, namely plies and tendus. A plie, or bend of the knees, is a building block of ballet; plies are used to initiate and terminate many movements. Tendus are a brush against the floor in which the working leg does not leave the floor; from tendus, one can build up to many other movements. It is advised that those at home use a chair, barre, or table to use as support. Also, if a full-length mirror is available to check posture, that is a good tool to have on hand. The focus of these exercises is to gradually build strength, balance, and turn-out; work within your comfort zone, making sure you are doing the movements properly, and always stopping if anything feels wrong or painful to avoid injury.

Building upon tendus, we will add a new movement- degage, which means to disengage. This is a tendu where the toes leave the floor, as opposed to a tendu where the working leg stays in contact with the floor at all times. We will also build upon plies, or a bend of the knees, and go over releve and eleve exercises. As with the last set of exercises, it is advised to have a chair, barre, or other surface to use as support, and to check posture in a full-length mirror if available. As always, the focus of these exercises is to gradually build strength, balance, and turn-out; work within your comfort zone, making sure you are doing the movements properly, and always stopping if anything feels wrong or painful to avoid injury.

Finding Your Balance (Intermediate Level)

 (Intermediate Level)
We begin with the Forward Bend Series
that helps relieve stress, stimulates the liver and kidneys along with reducing fatigue and
anxiety, and increases overall flexibility.  After this series, we move into a series of
beautiful balancing poses.  When doing each balancing pose make sure to place your foot
down fully from heel to splayed toes to ensure a strong and steady balancing leg.  Yoga
balancing poses are great for improving leg strength and stability, as well as increasing
your body awareness.  If you are a beginner/have trouble balancing on one leg, use a wall
to support yourself and use your free hand/hands to help balance you.  You can work your
way up to doing them freestanding.  If you are a beginner/have limited flexibility make sure
to have a yoga belt handy to help you do the Standing Forward Bend Series.  Remember
Yoga is not a competition and that you are doing Yoga for yourself to help improve your
overall well-being in life.  By doing these asanas naked it will help increase your body
awareness and increase your self-acceptance of who you are now in the moment.
 In this video you will learn the following asanas: Uttanasana Prep Stretches into
 Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend Prep Stretches into Standing Forward Bend),
 Utthita Bakasana (Standing Crane), Garudasana (Eagle), Natarajasana (The Dancer),

In this series we explore a way to profit from the well acknowledged benefits of practicing gentle yoga asana in heat. Again this practice does not require any special equipment just a well heated bathroom, or if the bathroom isn’t naturally warm one which can be warmed mindfully using steam from the shower. This is a standing series where traditional hatha poses like warrior, triangle and standing forward and backward bends are used to loosen up the body and focus the mind in a detoxifying environment which allows the lungs and pores to open and to cleanse themselves. This is at once a highly calming but energizing practice.

Organs of Action 1: The Hands
 (
Level: Intermediate)

nakedyogaschool.com (
Level: Intermediate)

The yoga tradition defines five organs of action, known as Karmendriyas in Sanskrit. The Hands are the organs of apprehension; through them we cultivate our understanding of the world. The Hands are also how we directly shape the world. This lesson will refine your awareness of the physical organ, as well as the aspects of consciousness that underlie its actions. Starting with self-massage and a physical exploration of the Hands, the practice continues with an application of the Hands in select asana, and concludes with a guided relaxation and an invitation to explore the subtle nature behind this organ of action. Asana presented in this teacher-and-student video include: Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose), Baddha Guliasana (Bound Fingers Pose), Prasarita Padottanasana, (Wide-Legged Standing Forward Fold Pose, with hands in reverse prayer), Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand Pose), and Savasana (Corpse Pose).

Breath and Asana for the First Chakra

nakedyogaschool.com (Beginner to Basic Level)
Chakras are spinning energy centers along our spine.  The first chakra is located at the base of our spine and is the center of physical vitality.  It governs issues surrounding primal survival and erotic/procreative urges.  When the first chakra is balanced, its grounding force allows us to connect to earth energies and empower ourselves.  
After some tips on setting up an altar to encourage those first chakra vibrations, we begin this class with Breath of Fire, which engages the first chakra and fires its energy all over the body.  We then move into some supine poses that open the hips and areas surrounding the base of the spine while helping us feel grounded on the floor.  Simple standing poses that stretch the backs of the legs open channels for earth energy to flow into the first chakra.  We end class in a grounding Savasana (Corpse Pose) with a short meditation on body awareness.

Naked Partner Dance 1: Mirroring (Level: All)

nakedyogaschool.com (Level: All)
For this video series, we will be going over different ways to explore movement with a partner. I highly recommend finding a friend who you are comfortable with, since it takes good communication and trust to effectively do these exercises. A great way to see how you naturally dance and how your partner naturally dances is by mirroring each other: one of you will be the LEADER, and one of you will be the FOLLOWER. The leader comes up with different movements (try to keep them simple at first), and the follower tries their best to copy exactly what the leader is doing as if they were their mirror image. We will also go over many different ways to elaborate on this idea. Have fun!

Another move that builds upon the basic tendu is ronde de jambe, or AROUND THE NECK. In short, the focus is to maintain proper posture and gently working on turning out while the working leg moves in a D shape. This exercise is very strenuous on the hips and knees, so it is advised to check that your alignment is correct; it is advised to take a beginner's ballet class and an experienced dance teacher should pick up on a misalignment or things to work on. This movement can be done A TERRE (on the ground) or EN L'AIRE (in the air). It's best to start on the ground when learning, in order to focus on what part of the toe is maintaining contact with the floor. Go slow and stay within your comfort zone!

We tend to disassociate our upper bodies from our lower bodies because of taken-for-granted improper ergonomics and cultural habits, like chairs, cement, wearing shoes, incorrectly carrying weight or reaching for something.  When we begin to integrate the proper functioning of the lower body in relation to the upper body, we can move with more efficiency, breath access, and better digestion and circulation.  This becomes particularly crucial during pregnancy due to the radical increase of weight and fluids.

Getting into an upside down position can help a breech, an oblique (diagonal lie), or posterior baby reposition themselves into the head-down orientation for birth.  During a forward-leaning inversion, the uterus briefly hangs by the cervical ligaments; returning to an up-right position relaxes the ligaments. Babies that are not in a head-down anterior position OR malpositioning of the uterus often put pressure on pelvic nerves, causing pain in the back, groin, and legs.  Notice wrist options. These asanas also help release lower back and hips which, due to the additional weight of the pregnant belly, often experience discomfort.In this practice, you will learn: (Cat Cow Pose), (Cat Cow w/ Infinity Circle Hips),  Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Dog Pose), Variation on Adho Mukha Svanasana (Three-Legged, Open-Hipped Downward Dog Pose),  (Dolphin Pose), (Three-Legged, Closed-Hip Dolphin Pose), Setu Bandha (Bridge Pose) w/ variations.

Luckily nobody slipped me any ritalin between shoots. Having had the opportunity to teach children yoga in an after school program it was shocking to see how many adults simply saw the goal of the class as to DISCIPLINE the children. Looking at the sad sack adults on the street and wondering what had become of the bright spirits they were decades ago, I realized we get on the wrong track at a pretty young age. This series is intended to undo all the damage caused to you starting from elementary school right through your present desk job. Seriously power point????  We begin with some fun vinyasa flow sun salutations, play a bit with eagle pose for all levels and then cap it off with a focus on the lower back with a little bit of yin yoga by exploring seal and snail pose.

The series is intended to present the practitioner with an opportunity to focus on whimsy and explore whether or notwhimsy may be the best medicine. Somewhere along the lines yoga in the US has taken a funny turn whereby it has decided to compete with bootcamps and the trumped of drama of reality weight loss shows and we now find ourselves packed into classes with toes in our faces and hard bodied actresses telling us we are not disciplined enough, even though we have worked the past seven days straight, and still don't have enough money to get a tooth filled.   Thus in a world of pure stress the antidote may be non judgemental play, and play you will in sun salutations based on the Sivananda series, triangle pose and some core strengtheners followed by a small introduction to the practice of  Yin yoga, where the focus is on loosening up  the connective tissues.

In a world constructed out of stress the antidote may be non judgemental play. This lesson is intended to follow up on the theme that more discipline may not be the cure to our ills, but rather exploring the proposition that allowing ourselves  more room to release through play may be the best way forward. The yoga inspired antics of the behatted yogini take you through a vinyasa flow sun salutation infused with the opportunity to dance. After warming up the entire body, the fusion of dance and fun are explored through a short dancing warrior series that tap a little into the world of tai chi and culminate in a further exploration of Yin yoga where we open the hips with the dragon and swan poses.

Repetitive stresses, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, are one expression of this imbalanced use of the upper limbs. A regular practice of the sequence provided here will help re-balance the upper limbs and can reduce your risk of repetitive stress injuries.

The results may sound familiar: low back pain, sore hips, and numbness in the buttocks. But perhaps even more detrimental are the digestive and eliminative disorders that can arise when we don't liberate the lower torso: ulcers, incontinence, diarrhea, constipation, hemorrhoids. If that's not enough to get your hips swinging and your belly churning (in a good way), then you might be compelled by yet another benefit of this practice: improved sexual vitality.

Moving your neck through a complete range of motion is a great way to relax -- it's so natural you probably do it already -- but the neck's flexibility is also is vulnerability, which is why guided instruction can be so beneficial, particularly if your neck is already sore or tight.

These practices may seem silly or too small to matter; it is precisely that tension of the mind which this practice can also begin to soften.

Between commuting with heavy bags, sitting in a chair for much of the day, holding our arms in a fixed tying position, those of us who work a regular office job place a lot of strain on our spines, resulting in chronic back pain.  This series stretches and strengthens the spine, preventing future injuries and easing past ones.  Cat/cow pose warms and massages the spine, while reclining big toe pose lengthens and stretches it.  A short series of "baby" backbends playfully challenges us to explore how we crunch our lower backs - and how to treat the area with more kindness and compassion.  Finally, wind-releasing pose strengthens the abdominal muscles, which support the lower back so as to prevent further strain.

If we practice without mindfulness, the knees can suffer in yoga.  If you experience knee pain in daily life or during yoga practice, this gentle sequence will teach you to treat your knees with kindness as you gain the benefits of more vigorous variations.  Beginning in tadasana (mountain pose), we bring awareness to the area as we engage the legs.  Triangle pose stretches and strengthens the legs while keeping the knee joint safe.  We move to the wall for Supported Warrior, a wonderful modification for those who feel a lot of strain when lunging.  Finally, wind-releasing pose lubricates the knee joints while providing all-important core engagement.

nakedyogaschool.com (Beginner/Intermediate level)
A life spent squinting at computer and mobile device screens wreaks havoc on our precious eyes.  But even before the advent of contemporary technology, the ancient yogis had ways to reverse the damage.  Temple Dancer Eyes is a subtle movement that strengthens in nerves and supports the muscles that surround the eyes.  We continue on to other exercises that help build focus.  If practiced with regularity, this series helps build focus that is not only visual, but will eventually train mental focus as well.

Here we are introduced the beginning of our practice. The pronunciation of AUM, Intention setting, the full yogic-breath and basic pranayama. It is essential to connect with one’s center and the ease of breath before starting movement. From here we move into specialized Sun Salutations. Sun Salutations connect us to the cosmic energy of warmth, longevity, openess and focus. Originally sun salutations (surya namaskar) were a series of poses that were intended to be prostrations to the sun. Drawing that ancient wisdom into our awareness we warm the body up, build strength, flexibility and also start to develop more of a relationship between the self and the cosmos.

Here we learn the basic principles of yoga on a physical level. Forward bending, back bending, twisting, and lateral postures. Later on inversions, balancing, strengthening and grounding poses should be introduced to ones practice. Here we explore the proper positioning of two essential basic poses, cobra (bujangasana) for back bending and seated side bend for lateral stretching.  The main intention for asanas is to be able to sit in meditation longer with comfort. Back bending is great for building the strength to sit up right, while a cross legged side stretch begins to lengthen the torso in those tight unfelt spaces in the hips, pelvis and lower back.

Here we continue the journey into the basic postures. We move into the seated forward bend (Paschimottanasana) and the basic seated twist (ardha matsyendrasana). Forward folding is complementary to back bending. The forward fold is great for calming the mind and it reduces vata (wind) and tones the kidneys. Make sure to let your heart is lift and spine lengthens in this pose. Twisting tones all the organs and central nervous system. Practice regularly and it will bring much balance to your internal alignments. Allow yourself to keep your heart lifted and open from the hip in your seated twisting. Breathe deep and slow.

Balancing is important for finding our ground, they build focus,  core strength and are helpful for developing proper alignment awareness. I feel they are an essential part of a dynamic yoga practice. In this series we explore two basic balancing poses. For strengthening we explore a couple of warrior variations as well as down ward facing dog. Warrior poses offer a lot of the same benefits of balancing poses, while also opening the hips hearts and discovering our sense of power. In downward dog its really important to discover how our unique body fits into this pose (*this is true for any pose, but especially this pose). This pose frequents many modern vinyasa flows and is often done incorrectly. Here we discover the proper way to sink into this powerful pose.

The hips hold so much information and are the bridge between our lower body and upper body. Opening the hips allows us to feel more connected to the earth, supports opening the pathways for the vital energy to circulate into the rest of the body. Opening the hips also allows for a more comfortable and deeper meditation. Make sure to really deepen the breath in these poses. Long steady complete breathing, really guiding the awareness into the mystery of the hips.

Working with a chair supplements your foundation for these poses, allowing you to more deeply explore the energy of the warrior. The chair can also support the expansion of your focus to encompass the complexity of these asymmetrical poses (your left and right legs are arranged differently).

Working with a chair provides points of support for the upper body so that a freer exploration of the hip joints and the lengthening of the spine can begin. Asana presented in this teacher-and student video include: Adha Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog), Ardha Uttanasana (Half Standing Forward Bend), Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend), and Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide Legged Standing Forward Bend).

(All Levels) Our feet bear the physical and psychological weight of our daily demands.  They connect us to the earth and give us the opportunity for movement.  Feet are both very personal, while they lead us to others. Many injuries in the ankles, knees, hips, back and neck originate from unconscious use of the feet.  Additionally, because of the interconnectedness of the feet muscles with those of the pelvic floor, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and bladder problems often stem improper foot use. As a pregnant woman, foot/inner arch consciousness becomes an essential practice to help properly tone the pelvic floor. Toe, Feet, and Ankle exercises can also reduce swelling. Always use a wall or chair if free-balancing feels intimidating or inappropriate.      

In this practice, you will learn: Yoga Nidra Ankle Roll, Excruciating/Exhilarating Toe Pose, Tadasana (Mountain Pose), Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Tree Pose), Nataranjasana, (Dancer Pose).

In this practice, the emphasis is on nourishing the parasympathetic nervous system:  relaxing the kidneys, adrenal glands, and lower back area. Breath-awareness is a key to help secrete endorphins and let go of adrenaline.   Oval breathing helps to lift the front body, relax the back body, and ground the thigh bones - allowing for deeper, more expansive access to your breath.  The Law of Sphincters tells us when we relax the jaw, we relax the cervix and uterus; when we release our lips, we release our perineum muscles and pelvic floor.  There is a natural expulsive process of the muscles when they are relaxed.

Fatigue during labor is often misinterpreted as Pain.  In this practice, I will lead through a series of poses in which the psyche, nervous system and immune system have a chance to rest. Both soothing and regenerating, these poses bring balance to our demanding daily lives, allowing us to release tension at deep levels and experience an increased sense of well- being. These are meditative poses in which the body is at rest because it is supported. Props allow the posture (whether a forward-bend, backbend, twist, or inversion) to be held without strain for extended periods of time. An excellent series for those suffering from depression or anxiety.

Getting into an upside down position can help a breech, an oblique (diagonal lie), or posterior baby reposition themselves into the head-down orientation for birth.  During a forward-leaning inversion, the uterus briefly hangs by the cervical ligaments; returning to an up-right position relaxes the ligaments. Babies that are not in a head-down anterior position OR malpositioning of the uterus often put pressure on pelvic nerves, causing pain in the back, groin, and legs.  Notice wrist options. These asana also help release lower back and hips which, due to the additional weight of the pregnant belly, often experience discomfort. These asana also help build communication and clarity of intention between partners.

In this practice, you will learn: Sitting Back to Back Breathing, Upavista Konasana w/partner feet at sacrum, Partner Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Dog Pose) with belt-Pull Variation/Push Variation, Partner Pinchamayurasana preparation (Dolphin Pose) with belt-Pull Variation/Push Variation, Standing double squat: one up/one down; Double squat push/pull arms.

(All Levels)
Pushing through to the end-result = goal-oriented (just like w/ sex) neglects the extraordinary journey, the fullness of lessons we could learn along the way.  Giving birth is a creative act, and like all creative acts it cannot be forced to conform to society's unnatural time constraints. The insistence on pushing in labor is a reflection of our cultural attitude that force and haste are superior to trust and patience. Pushing can be dangerous to both the mother and the baby. When a woman is pushing she is holding her breath. Oxygen therefore, is not going to her uterus which makes contracting more difficult and painful. It is also not going to her baby. This can lead to a drop in the fetal heart rate and possible brain damage. Tearing of the perineum is more common for women who have pushed over a long period of time and studies show that pushing does not necessarily get a baby out faster anyway.  Practicing labor positions with your partner ahead of time can help you learn to slow down, absorb the fullness of each pause, and BREATHE.


In this practice, you will learn: Lunge Release on wall; Lunge Release on chair; Standing Hang Release; Forward Bend Sacrum Press on Ball-medial and downward; Hands and Knees Lower Back Release; Chair Back Release; Bonding and Visualization in Upavista Konasana (Extended Straddle); Side-Lying Touch Relaxation Exercise.

Naked Orgasmic Birth Practice 1: Dynamic Relaxation! (All Levels)

(All Levels: Yoga for pregnant women)
I have been researching the physiology of female orgasm and female ejaculation since the mid-90s.  Now that I am pregnant and investigating orgasmic birth, I am including the politics of childbirth into this matrix of hyper-medicalized cultural conditioning which uproots our most basic human functions.  Vulnerability as a form of strength is key to reclaiming the wisdom of our bodies. Pregnancy/Labor/ChildBirth mirror the most remarkable contraction: What is the most NORMAL part of our bodies’ capacity is also the most miraculous. For almost 15 years, I have been teaching Iyengar yoga, Body Consciousness Workshops, Yoga and Sexuality Workshops - Prenatal Work is the culmination!!!  In this practice, the emphasis is on nourishing the parasympathetic nervous system. Breath-awareness is a key to help secrete endorphins and inhibit the release of adrenaline.  The Law of Sphincters tells us when we relax the jaw, we relax the cervix and uterus; when we release our lips, we release our perineum muscles and pelvic floor.  There is a natural expulsive process of the muscles when they are relaxed. Pushing may not be needed for childbirth if the mother feels completely relaxed and confident:  safety, darkness, warmth, and privacy are essential elements in this process.  It is critical to not stimulate her neocortex.

In this practice, you will learn: Supported Baddha Konasana (Cobbler Pose) w/Oval Breathing and Soft Pelvic Floor-Eye exercises, Tongue/Jaw Qi Gong Exercise; Virasana (Hero Pose)- Horse Lips=Cervical Dilation, Exhilarating/Excruciating Toe Pose-Irrelevant Tension Focus, All Fours (orgasmic birthing videos): Diagonal Stretch Reach-wrist alternatives, Lion’s Breath-Pituitary Gland Focus, Gomukhasana (Cow Pose) legs, Alternate Nostril Breathing, Bridge w/Sacrum block.

(All Levels

Trusting your intuition becomes an essential part of labor and childbirth - this may involve exploring parts of our body and consciousness that have been socialized out of us. Many women have orgasms during birth, but may interpret them as pain because the sensations are more intense than anything previously experienced and because women (everyone) are conditioned to expect pain.  The SAME RECEPTORS IN BRAIN FUNCTION FOR BOTH PLEASURE AND PAIN. A single orgasm is thought to be 22 times as relaxing as the average tranquilizer. Often, it's exactly what a woman needs in order to relieve the tension that is preventing the birth response from doing its job. Most doctors, however, are either unaware of this fact, or prefer more artificial methods.


In this practice, you will learn: Eyes closed-Hip rotations/Ribs rotations on ball; Half dog w/ catcow and rotations; Squats; Upavista Konasana w/side bend, Parsva Konasana (Side Angle Extended Stretch); Virabhandrasana II (Warrior II); Virabhandrasana I (Warrior I); Airport Hip Opener w/Namaste behind back.

Naked Orgasmic Birth Practice 3: Ecstatic Birthing Ball 2 (Nude Prenatal Yoga)

(All Levels)
This practice is about choosing when and how to let go and hold on. We cannot separate what we believe about life from what we believe about birth. We can use sex and sensuality awareness as a conscious tool for induction, relaxation, and propulsion. The same body parts and hormones that are involved (oxtytocin, relaxin, prostaglandin) during sex are involved during labor and childbirth. Once we understand that the LOVE HORMONES stimulate the Natural Expulsive Reflex (NER)/ Fetal Ejection Reflex (i.e., uterine contractions) we can learn to build confidence in our bodies innate wisdom. Labor and childbirth can become the lived/embodied concept of the Erotic:  the infinite connection with oneself, with the universe. Practicing Contraction/Expansion and finally, how to CHOOSE, can allow us to let go. Often, control leads to unconscious contraction; resistance leads to pain. Instead, even just noticing the contraction can change our habitual reaction to what we think is pain (the unfamiliar).

In this practice, you will learn: Standing Balance Pose Front/Back; Standing Balance Pose Lateral; Child’s Pose Roll; Bridge lift w/ Ball under shoulder blades; Torso Twist (Gate Pose); Hip Release on Back-roll back/forth; Setu Bandha (Bridge Pose) w/Feet on Ball; Legs Elevated.

Breathing for the Third Eye = 6th Chakra (Intermediate Level)

(Intermediate Level)

The sixth chakra, best known as the third eye, is located at the point between our eyebrows and represents the seat of consciousness.  The more readily we can access the power of our sixth chakra, the more clear our perceptions and compassionate our nature will become.  
After assembling an altar to honor the elements of the sixth chakra, we will learn Humming Bee breath.  This technique creates vibrations with a light snoring sound that immediately and tangibly connects us with the third eye.  Inverted postures are best for bringing awareness to the sixth chakra, as we find ourselves in opposition to our usual point of view.  

As such, we will introduce the feeling of inversion with a careful study of Downward Dog, a pose so frequently practiced that we can easily forget its significance.  We then take Plow and Shoulder Stand, the queen of the asanas.  After Headstand against the wall, we take a well-deserved child’s pose and complete the lesson by chanting OM – the sound that resonates most highly with the third eye.

Cool Yoga: Saluting the Moon
! (Basic to Intermediate Level
)

(Basic to Intermediate Level
)
In this lesson, we first learn to use Sithali Pranayam (Tongue Hissing Breath) to cool and soothe the body.  Next, we move through a rejuvenating Moon Salutation with a circular, cyclical groove that will help unlock the Divine Feminine within, regardless of external gender.  Poses are suitable for basic- through intermediate-level practitioners, though modifications and variations for most levels are offered.
Sithali Pranayam is a useful (and fun!) breathing technique for when you find yourself irritated by the summer heat, flushed with anger, or plagued by hot flashes.  This practice also reduces fatigue, bad breath, fevers, and high blood pressure.  Note that you should not practice this technique if you suffer from constipation, as Sithali Pranayam cools the digestive tract.
Moon Salutations are a soothing yet empowering variation and counterbalance to classical Sun Salutations.  They allow us to honor the feminine side of our energy, in contrast to the Sun Salutations, which stimulate masculine energy.  Moon Salutations are not just for women! Men can reconnect, realign and cool down fiery impulses with this sequence. Moon Salutations can shift energy without increasing heat in the body and tend to be less stimulating than Sun Salutations, thereby balancing hot emotions, relaxing and calming the mind and body, and restoring balance.

Getting to Know the Respiratory System with Yogic Breathing
 (Beginner Level)

(Beginner Level)
New to the practice?  This lesson is the perfect introduction for students who want to learn the power of deep breathing.  We progress through the three locations of yogic breathing, learning how to isolate different parts of our respiratory system.



Abdominal breathing, with its wonderful expansion of the diaphragm, is pacifying.  We learn to direct breath into the lower lobes of our lungs and how we can drop into this feeling of calmness anytime, anywhere.  Moving up to the thorax, we learn how to consciously create space between our ribs.  Clavicular breathing teaches us to access the upper lobes of the lungs that ensure we are breathing as fully as possible, but often get ignored.  Finally, we incorporate all three areas into a deep, continuous yogic breath that will serve as an introduction to each session of our asana practice.

Naked Robotic Dance 1: Arms and Head in Robotics (Level: Beginner)


(Level: Beginner)

Robotics is the foundation of all styles related to popping. It is a great way for dancers and non-dancers to build better body awareness, mental acuity, and muscle control. The focus of this exercise is to isolate different parts of the body while leaving all other parts of the body motionless; a good picture to keep in mind is a painter using a paintbrush. In order to give a definitive mark, you should be very precise. Before you begin, it is advisable to stand on a yoga mat, or another surface that you will not be tempted to move your feet on. 
When learning, focus on only a few body parts at first; in this video, we focus on the head and arms. Find a comfortable starting position (see the suggested one in video), and move one arm, until it naturally comes to a stop; with practice, you will become more in tune with when this natural stop is. When that arm is still again, move the next arm until the natural stop. Then, move the head, and so on. Try to be aware of which part you are moving, and which parts you are not. Do not worry what this looks like, focus on how it feels!

The last video, we learned how to isolate either the head or arms in the robotic style; now, we will begin to use the feet. Again, do not worry what this looks like yet; the focus of this is to get the FEEL of it! The feet in robotics never lift off the floor; have an image of a toy robot that a child would play with that "shuffles" across the floor. There are many ways to use the feet, but in this video we will focus on the most natural way- robotic walking. A good way to start is to walk across the room normally; notice that when your right foot steps out, your left arm swings forward. Now, try to slide your right foot directly in front of you, and bring your left arm forward in whatever way feels natural to you. Make sure that for now the motions are coordinated- when your foot starts moving, your arm starts moving; when your foot stops, your arm stops. Practicing this for just 5 minutes a day will help bring it into your muscle memory.

Naked Yin Yoga 5: Salute to the Self
 (All Levels)

(All Levels)

Yin Yoga is a quiet practice which allows the practitioner to increase their level of self awareness through the retention of positions for up to five minutes. Stillness is a profound teacher. The Yin practice is an exploration of stillness from a variety of different perspectives. Unlike traditional seated meditation, where the mind eventually settles into the habit of a single position, the Yin practice challenges the mind to scan the practitioners internal life from multiple angles. This lesson focuses on releasing the spine and hips with the butterfly pose and the child's pose. Like a grain of sand under a microscope these seemingly simple poses, often regarded as basic in Hatha yoga classes,  are both healing and challenging when held for extended periods of time. Practitioners are encouraged to use whatever props are necessary to allow them to surrender to these poses and free their minds while loosening joints and connective tissue. (NYV0026)

Robotics is a form of street dance that became popular in the late 1960's, with Michael Jackson bringing it more into mainstream culture from the underground dance scene. It involves movement with definite stops, called DIME STOPS. Robotic movement is the foundation to most other styles- popping, waving, cobra, snaking, tutting... once you have robotics down, you gain valuable skills that will aid you in any other street dance style. In this video, we will learn some basic robotic moves to practice that is appropriate for all levels and ages. You are encouraged to move at your own pace, and use these moves to become aware of your range of motion. The key to robotics is to find the balance between being in control of your movements without getting too relaxed or too tense. Keep the moves you do slow and controlled, and most of all have fun!

We will focus on how to make any style robotic by adding in start/stop isolations. I will encourage you to do freestyle movement, or you can watch me for different ideas. The goal of freestyle movement is to move without thinking; allow your body to think for you. A good way to see how your motion changes is to put on different music when you practice; see how you move to opera, country, heavy metal, or even just city noise.

Who knew that a necktie could be such a great yoga prop?  In today's slow, stretchy class, we use a necktie to work deep into the muscles of inner and outer thigh and hamstring.  Next, grab a partner to assist you into the most relaxing bridge and downward dog variations you'll ever experience.  We close using the necktie to bring us deeply into a seated forward bend.

Naked DIY Yoga Props 4: Supported Wheel with a Stool

(Advanced & Intermediate Level)

Wheel (Inverted Bow) is one of the most recognizable shapes in yoga.  Many of us rush into the pose, wanting to be able to tell ourselves that we can successfully take on the challenge.  But using an adjustable stool as a prop helps us learn patience and proper form.  Beginning with standing backbends and shoulder openers, we continue to prepare for supported wheel pose with camel pose and upward bow pose.

Naked Breakdance 1: Full Body Workout (
Level: Intermediate

nakedyogaschool.com
(
Level: Intermediate

This short workout is designed for anyone who has a good level of fitness already, and is looking to explore new ways to exercise. We will use some familiar moves to anyone who has taken a fitness class- bicycles and planks, to name a few- while adding in some techniques from breakdancing- two step and six step. The focus will be to never stop moving- in this video I maintain a two step (stepping side to side) when not doing other movements, but this can be modified to suit each viewer's needs. If this routine feels too easy, focus on lengthening the time you take to execute a movement. For example, instead of doing fast bicycles, take a few seconds to complete each movement while maintaining core activation. (NYV0031)

Naked Partner Dance 2: Echoing (Level: All)

nakedyogaschool.com (Level: All)
After you and your partner grow comfortable with mirroring, and hopefully have a bit more insight into how the other moves, a great exercise is echoing. Instead of trying to move in exact unison (or, at the same time) as your partner, here the follower will aim to allow them to finish a movement done by the leader and then copy it. At first, the follower should try to do the move exactly as the leader did it. Once that becomes easier, the follower should come up with a way to modify the leader's move to make it their own, while still keeping the basic idea of the move intact. For example, if the leader puts their arm out to the side very fast, the follower can instead choose to put their arm out to the front very fast. See what you and your partner come up with! (NYV0033)

Building upon the idea of the follower modifying the leader's movements in the Echoing exercise, here will go a bit further. In Contrasting, we will aim to be the opposite of our partner. For example, if one person decides to do fast movement, the other does slow movement; if one is doing sharp, precise movements, the other will do softer movements. This is sure to challenge both partners, and help to create a lot of new movement ideas. The student, Katie, pointed out that contrasting emotions could be something to play with, which is something I would never have come up with on my own! See what ideas both you and your partner have!

Keep in mind that this exercise is focusing on PUSHING lifts; i.e., one person is "pushing" or giving their weight to another. We will also begin to think of how we can add lifting into our previous exercises. It is essential that as the one being lifted, you trust that your base person will not drop you; if there is no sense of trust that is a recipe for falling! I hope you can take these basic ideas and find ways to build upon them and come up with your own lifting ideas! (NYV0033)

In this video, we will go over how to jump safely, and also how to fall safely. My student, Katie, has very little dance experience and asked me how a dancer manages to jump so high and still land safely. I figured if she had this question, many viewers must wonder the same thing. I have mainly a ballet background, but prefer the modern dance approach, so we will be focusing less on proper turnout and more on getting the FEELING of jumping correct. In short, in order to have a forceful UP reaction (or jump), you have to have an equally forceful DOWN reaction. As always, when you are trying something new, start small. You will really be surprised how little force you need to jump high! (NYV0033)

Travel is a part of all of our lives. Sometimes our reasons for traveling are pragmatic extensions of our daily lives where the voyage is due to work and family. Sometimes travel is to rest, revitalize or let completely loose, and sometimes we travel to expand and transform. Whatever the underlying purpose of the trip, maintaining a yoga practice on the road will help you to get the most out of your journey. In this first part of the series on travel and yoga, we explore simple breathing and asana techniques which can be used to offset the discomfort experienced when spending extended periods time in a car, or on an airplane. The series presented is intended for both yoga practitioners and those who don’t practice alike, and reminds the practitioner how breath can become one’s best ally when trying to remain relaxed in cramped conditions. Additionally, maintaining an awareness of posture and small movements with the neck, shoulders and hips can play an important role in staying loose on the road. (NYV0038)

The first night in a new location can be unsettling. There may be a time difference, or acclimation to new foods and different surroundings and weather. Your mind may be racing as it prepares for the first scheduled meeting at 7 am, or the hollow feeling that results from longing for the partner or the_child who keeps you company on a regular basis, or maybe the return to a former HOME is reminding you why you left in the first place. The following sequence has been designed to help the practitioner ease into a good night’s sleep. The sequence requires very little space and absolutely no equipment (we are envisioning there was no room in the one piece of carry-on luggage for a yoga mat!) Using the wall and breath as a means of grounding the practice, this series takes the practitioner through a gentle sequence of inversions and hip openers which allow for the chest and shoulders to open and for the body to balance itself.

Naked DIY Yoga Props 5: Seated Sequence for Seniors

nakedyogaschool.com (Level: Absolute beginners)
This very gentle sequence was designed for seniors, first-timers, or yogis recovering from injuries who desire the same benefits of stretching and detoxification that a vigorous practice provides. You will need a folding-type chair and access to a wall.  We warm up with half Sun Breaths and a shoulder opener, then use the chair to come into an easy spinal twist and leg stretches.  We learn to find more support in Warrior II pose by finding it on a chair, and modify the pose for knee injuries.  The session closes with conscious, calming deep breathing.

nakedyogaschool.com (All levels)
Paying tribute to the light in the word ENLIGHTENMENT, this series is inspired by spontaneous laughter. It is tempting to shroud our yoga practice in somber wrapping in an effort to convey that achieving this ENLIGHTENMENT is very serious work. The PATH however is not always paved in tears, to this end laughter functions as a springboard for a standing series including standing yoga nidra, both variations on the halves of the moon, triangle pose and warrior pose.

If yoga is the path to the TRUE SELF then the question is where is the path or which path is the right one. Today we experiment with a dancing path. This class invites the practitioner to begin work on carving out their own path. We begin with a basic warm up, and then the practitioner is invited to meld with and explore the space around them. The same old bedroom, yard or street suddenly is seen through fresh eyes as we learn to see and experience these spaces with movement. NYV0040

Aryuvedic medicine - the traditional medicine practiced in India- seeks to support healing and wellness by working with an individual's DOSHA or TYPE. According to Aryuvedic theory, there are three primary doshas, vata (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth). Individuals can exhibit either one of these doshas, or aspects of all three. In this series the practitioner is given the opportunity to explore what elements govern their constitution through movement. NYV0040

Even if we aren't always Kapha in mind our spirit can often find itself in a state of Kapha. In this short sequence, we take advantage of the loose structure that Dosha Dance has to offer to slowly ease ourselves into an appropriate level of motion. This is the perfect little workout for those who are feeling somewhat limited and are unable to participate in a fully structured practice. Maybe it is just bobbing your head or rotating your wrists and ankles, but this is a true lesson that anything is better than nothing! This is an exploration of the small joys that can be found in movement, and moving towards the unexpected. NYV0040

Naked Ballet Exercises 5: Ballet Stretches
 (All Levels)

In order to avoid injury and increase flexibility, it is a good idea to stretch before and after exercises. Here are a few exercises to start with, and over time can be built upon and added to. I chose to use a small towel to sit on while stretching, which is optional. Things to focus on are to hold a stretch that can be maintained for 10-15 seconds or longer rather than trying to stretch too far and stretching and releasing repeatedly; it is much easier to find your comfort zone and increase flexibility over time if you start in a comfortable pose, and slowly stretch deeper as you exhale. As always, go slow and stay within your comfort zone!

Combinations are super brain food! In contemporary dance class, the combination is given within the last half hour. I like sometimes to base some of my choreography in the combination on my movement in my warm up. Contemporary dance is based on emotion. In this combination I show a sense of running away from love. I begin by breaking down each movement, I then connect the movement, adding it to other movement to form a series. There is some classical dance training needed here for proper turns.

By choice or by design few get through life without somehow becoming "hardened" by our experiences. As we grow older we take societal constraints as a given. By way of example, walking, why do we walk the way we do, why don't we throw in a little skipping from time to time? Yoga, as a general rule, invites the practitioner to explore their surroundings from new perspectives as a means towards catharsis. By adding sound and laugher to traditional asana and breathing practices the practitioner is invited to release new emotions and experience new sensations that one may not feel comfortable doing on a sidewalk!
In this first of a series of six classes , we incorporate laugher into basic asana poses including simple pranayama (breathing) and sun salutation. NYV0043A

Tapping into our spirit animals through laughter and breath is an opportunity to re-awaken aspects of ourselves that have been shut down in order that we can attain greater self knowledge. In this practice we focus on the crow (life mysteries and magic), turkey (sacrifice), bear (strength and confidence) and elephant (royalty and strength.)

Sadness is hard but it is also a part of our lives. The purpose of this practice is to destigmatize sadness, by laughing at it and also exploring the edge between laughing and crying. We cannot truly be free if we fear sadness. If we insist on censoring emotion then we only put more effort into it. Emotions are like a forest and sadness one of the natives. We can either simply exist with the sadness or go through all sorts of contortions to avoid it and kill it. The practice of yoga is intended to create union and as such we will never achieve union by building walls. Notice, while you explore this practice, how laughter is more strained or if it is less strained. Then explore what is lost or opened throughout your daily life. (NYV0043E)

The practice of silent laugher is an exploration of the practitioner's "inner life." Yoga philosophy invites the practitioner to view expectations and cultural norms with the "beginner's mind." Classical asana like sirsasana literally turn the practitioner's pre-conceptions on their head. What then is real, the polite greetings by the water cooler which are witnessed by everyone or the thoughts in everyones heads behind the greetings. Ultimately silence is difficult there is something in all of us waiting to emerge and be heard, the silent laughter is an opportunity to observe authentic communication, the unforced expression that ultimately cannot be held in.

Working With Your Body! (Level: All)

TeaThe purpose of this video is to help all of us discover how our own individual body works. If you have access to a full length mirror to see your full body, that is best. Otherwise, if you have a friend who you are comfortable doing this with, another set of eyes is always a good thing!
Each body is different, so we should first learn what makes us different before pursuing a new form of movement. Focusing on basic things such as posture when we sit and stand and move normally, this will help us to discover any abnormalities that may develop into serious problems later on. For example, I am hyper-flexible; I am more prone to injuring joints and ligaments since I tend to over-stretch. If you are hyper-flexible as well, it is best to focus on strengthening exercises and to re-learn how much stretching is useful and how much stretching is putting our body at risk for injury. If you notice any abnormalities, I strongly urge you to consult a physical therapist, dance teacher, yoga teacher, or someone well versed in a movement form to give you advice on how to correct and/or work with your body. This is our only body so we should take care of it! NYV0047

Ways to Modify a Basic Warm-up! (Level: All)

(Level: All)
In this video, I will be borrowing some key exercises from a standard ballet/modern warm-up and give different ways to modify these exercises to make them work for you. Like the last video in this series, the aim of this video will be to help us find what works for us, and how to work with our own individual body. A few examples of basic modifications you can make are how much (or how little) turnout is natural for you, and to translate that into the exercises. Most people can not safely have a 180 degree turnout, even with extensive ballet training. Likewise, not everyone is comfortable with the 6th position used in modern dance where the toes point straight forward. Once you find where you are most comfortable, you are more likely to have proper posture, and will avoid injury and allow yourself to properly perform exercises. No matter your experience level, all dancers begin class or a performance with a warm-up. This helps us to get our muscles and mind ready for more complex movement, and also to notice how our body is working that day. I advise doing these simple things before any routine! NYV0047B

Naked Walking Meditation 1: Meditation through Motion (Level: All)

(Level: All) In this video, we will go over a deceptively simple exercise. We will aim to walk from one end of the room to another in 5 and then 10 minutes. I encourage you to do this nude, especially if (like me) you find clothing to be distracting or confining. Find a safe and quiet place so that you will focus only on walking. Turn off your phone, turn off the TV, and enjoy the slow ride.
I am not an expert at meditation; in fact, it is something that is very frustrating to me. This goes completely against how I am in everyday life- I have to walk faster, pass anyone slower on the street, and I hate going slow. It is very normal to have emotions that you otherwise ignore come up when you meditate. Pay attention! What are you feeling when you are doing this exercise?
If anything troubling comes up for you, and you do not think that you can deal with it alone, I encourage you to take action. If you have a friend, yoga teacher, doctor, or anyone else that you feel safe opening up to, please do. I hope you have found this meditation to be useful! NYV0047D

What I love about my experience as a dancer is that after studying the art form I have the ability to infuse various forms of techniques in any style I wish; and you can too. In this video I have fused Step dance with Contemporary dance. The free flowing contemporary in contrast with the harshness of step allows for dynamic choreography. I have broken down the movement slowly and have also sped up the timing of the execution of choreography so that it may be appropriate for beginners as well as more intermediate dancers. Being nude helps me to express my dancing in a more honest fashion; it gives me a better sense of self. NYV0045C

Teacher: Gray

Yin Yoga works on the connective tissue in the body while most yoga practices affect the muscles.  It is a quiet, meditative practice in which poses are held for long periods to allow the tough connective tissue to slowly stretch.  In this practice Gray leads Collibrina through five poses over the course of a half hour (Shoelace, Seal, Seated Twist to the right and to the left and Relaxation Pose).  This is an ideal practice for the start of the day, before the body has warmed up and life becomes active and more Yang-focused.  There are important lessons to be learned from Yin Yoga about surrender and acceptance that are revealed over time.

In this video Gray leads Collibrina through a short Yoga practice designed for the end of the day.  The practice begins with Collibrina lying and slowing her breath and moves into gentle twisting, which is the main focus of this particular sequence.  Twisting poses can help release tension that is held in the body.  It is also thought that twisting squeezes toxins out of internal organs that are washed away when the twist ends and blood rushes back into the area that was compressed.  This practice assumes that the muscles have been warmed from a day of activity and its goal is to bring the student back to a calm and relaxed state.

Step Dance is a high energy, dynamic and specific form of dance.  Its takes tremendous effort on the body and mind, but is loads of fun. In this video Wara and I are learning a combo that has a variety of physical formations.  It's important that when you use you arms and legs to form whatever shape you are forming that the shapes are precise. eg. if your arms are straight, they need to be almost robotically straight.  At time a step combination is like a song; one stepper may be assigned to maintain one rhythm with his/her body and another stepper will maintain a different rhythm to create a medley of beats while performing.

Although this combination can be slowed down or sped up to accommodate beginner to advanced beginner levels; I suggest practicing it many times thoroughly at a slow rate and gradually increasing speed.

Naked Beginner Pilates 15: Criss Cross Standing vs. Mat (56D)

TRAILER: vimeo.com/105974864 Teacher: Skye, Student: Collibrina
In this video I show how targeting the obliques can be done in many positions.  Criss Cross stabalizes the trunk(torso) and readys  the core in preparation for the series of exercises to come.  This is an exercise that will help to define the waistline, but protect the lower back from the constant bending and twisting that we do daily.  Once mastered while standing you can challenge yourself and the strength of your core by adding some layers to it.  By alternating the legs while twisting, placing them at higher angles and/or moving the legs steadily and fluidly while twisting the core you will take yourself to the next level.  Always start slow and see the patterns or shapes that the body is making to prevent strain. I remove my clothes to work more freely as I do the movement.  NYV0056D

Naked Beginner Pilates 16: Bicycle Standing vs. Mat (56E)

TRAILER: vimeo.com/106628071 Teacher: Skye, Student: Collibrina
One of my favorite exercises to do is the bicycle. It is so good for that "lean legged" look that some desire and is just all around great for coordination, control and stability in the pelvis. When doing The Bicycle on the mat, one way to get a sense of positioning is by doing the "Roll Like A Ball" exercise. It will help in the alignment of the spine and get the hips used to being above the head while moving the legs fluidly. When standing, the arms are extended forward and parallel to the floor to maintain balance for beginners while moving the legs. I remove my clothes to work more freely as I do the movement.  NYV0056E

The Saw is great foe articulation of the spine. When done on the mat, it takes great control and patience. It is important to rotate the upper part of the torso in one direction and curve down gently while anchoring the hips. You must try your best not to over-pull or overstretch. While standing, The Saw looks like abaci exercise/stretch, but doesn't feel like one though. It is important to keep the hips in place and get the fullest rotation of the torso. Moving from side to side is great for practicing your focus as well. NYV0056F

The standing meditation practice can be done on its own, or integrated into a regular asana practice. Exploring one’s mindset while quietly standing is an excellent way to connect with one’s mind and body. This is a particularly useful practice if participating in any sort of fasting program or prior to going to bed. It is recommended to journal immediately afterwards.

From desk jobs and waiting tables to a daily bike commute, there are many activities in our daily lives that can lead to back pain. Holding a static posture or putting repetitive strain on the spine causes muscle imbalances and tight connective tissue. This sequence uses a combination of poses starting with the hips and working up to relax tense muscles and bring mobility into the soft tissues around the spine, hips and shoulder joints. In Yin Yoga, all poses are practiced passively, so once set yourself up, do your best to relax and let the pose work on you. Poses include: half pigeon, anahatasana, starfish (supine shoulder stretch), halasana (plough). Please be mindful of your knee joint in half pigeon - if you experience pain, back out of the pose, place a support (folded blanket or block) under your hip/thigh, or simply lie on your back and try a "figure 4" stretch instead. This Yin sequence can be complemented with the corresponding Vinyasa for Back Pain Relief sequence, which will strengthen the muscles around the opened joints, correcting imbalances and preventing relapse into bad posture.

The same yoga that's good for your body is equally good for your face -- but only if you apply the principles and practices. This introductory video uses emotional expressions to familiarize you with the mask of your face. Emotional expressions can get "stuck" and become a fixed part of your facial mask. This unconscious communication effects the way you're perceived by others. Face Yoga helps ease the tension in your face muscles that also contributes to wrinkling and the appearance of aging. Starting with full body movements to warm you up and connect you to your emotional body language, Face Yoga continues with an exploration of facial expressions and intentional gestures to soften the mask you wear every day, revealing the naked face that lies underneath.

Your jaw and mouth work all day long, chewing food, swallowing fluids, shaping your voice, and expressing your feelings. When the muscles that do this work are held too tightly or become out of balance, they can lead to headaches, tooth grinding, jaw clicking, and related symptoms of over-work. Fortunately, the same movement principles familiar to us from yoga can be applied to the muscles of the jaw and mouth. This basic program introduces you to a sequence of actions that gently stretch and re-balance the powerful jaw muscles. In addition to alleviating stress, limbering up your jaw and mouth will also tone the cheek muscles, relax mouth "lines" and rejuvenate the appearance of the lower face. NYV0058C

Props can be daunting for yogis unfamiliar with how to incorporate them into practice, but after becoming more comfortable with props, you will see that there really is no wrong way to use them. Widely endorsed by B.K.S. Iyengar, yoga props are primarily a method of keeping a practitioner's alignment intact, without forcing them further into a pose than their body is prepared for. This video will demonstrate how to use yoga blocks to make poses such as trikonasana (triangle) and ardha chandrasana (balancing half moon) more accessible to practitioners who have trouble reaching the ground, or simply feel overextended and uncomfortable in the full expression of the pose. Other poses demonstrated with modifications include easy pose, chair, warrior III, butterfly and puppy pose. Blocks will help the practitioner align his/her body in order to feel proper muscular engagement without overworking the joints. NYV0061A
