Core Sun Salutations
This redesign of the traditional vinyasa can be done between standing poses to ramp up the intensity of your practice. Learn to wave smoothly from your foundation, through your center, and up your spine and out to full expression, all the while protecting your low back by engaging your core.
Flying Warrior Flow

Find empowerment through fluid movement—and honoring what feels right to you—in this standing flow practice.

Thanks for these very helpful and inspiring videos, K.B. and model! If it's permitted, may I ask who the the bra top the model's wearing is by? (Could not make out the logo and I have quite a tough time finding yoga tops that fit well.)
Many thanks,


Thanks Kathryn for the great video about inversions. Yesterday, I was finally able to do the headstand and the tripod headstand following carefully the video. I feel more confident about inversions now. Next step the handstand!!
