In the DVS, you can practice with teachers from all over the world and experience a unique approach to led classes that are creative without being overly complex, and strong while still being accessible. Each practice will leave you feeling grounded and at ease, despite the fact that we broadcast from our homes where pets, partners and little ones sometimes make guest appearances.
For most of us, our ankles deserve a lot more attention than they're typically given. Use this class to wake up these joints! Learn how to use load intentionally and show your ankles how they're meant to move and feel.
If you just rolled out of bed or stepped onto your mat for the first time in a while, press play on this class to get started with a full-body wake-up call. We'll work from the ground up, starting with some core activation and from there build awareness into the hips, shoulders and spine. You'll...
In less than 10 minutes, we'll utilize props and activations to awaken our feet and ankles. This practice is great as a stand-alone or as a warm up to any other fitness routine, barefoot or otherwise. Our feet are our foundation, so let's bridge the gap of connection from body to brain.
In less than 30 minutes, you'll communicate to and fire up your hamstrings, glutes, and posterior shoulder. No equipment is needed, but an opportunity presents for additional load such as a dumbbell or kettlebell.
For those mornings when you have a half hour to get things moving and you want to add some sunshine to your day. Working through activating the legs and hip capsule to bring strength and stability to your joints, ensuring you are ready to take on anything the day throws at you!
Cecily's first class back postpartum focuses on coming back to your body with ease and grace. We'll move together through familiar shapes that bring energy and breath to areas of the body that may have been stagnant for a little too long. In only thirty minutes you'll be reminded of how potent ju...
Hand-balancing shenanigans can be challenging but also lighthearted and fun. In this practice, we explore working with our centre of gravity in avian shapes and eventually have a little play with peacock pose
When we release tension in the backs of our legs we can often find more freedom of movement in the spine. I often practice this class when I am feeling the need to release and relax. 20 minutes of supported postures to enhance your wellbeing. Enjoy!
All day we use our eyes and neck yet so rarely do we coordinate these two areas together at end range. This brief practice starts with head ramping, neck range of motion work, and strengthening actions for your eyes. At the end, we practice expanding our field of vision in a modified Triangle pos...
The "sidebum" - aka the glute medius region of your hips and backside - is a key contributor to hip and pelvic stability. This sub-30 minute practice will light up the glute med along with its nearby rotators to bring a healthy burn into these muscle groups. The best part? This entire class is fl...
Usually we practice in familiar ways, and there may not be so much variation in how we do things. This practice takes us off the typical path as it relates to shoulder rotation, to see what gems we can extract for ourselves.
Tasking the front and the back of the hip, we'll aim to counter the side effects of passive hip flexion and chair sitting. Incorporating active hip flexion and extension, this practice is mostly chill with just a dash of spice.
You'll want one yoga block and an optional dowel or broomstick.
This practice fuses upper body mobility and simple stretching to counter the effects of long bouts of sitting whether it’s at your desk, in your car, or on your sofa. You’ll need yoga blocks, a bolster or some cushions, and a dowel or broomstick for class.
The perfect complement to any practice that involves weight-bearing on the hands. We'll mobilize the wrists and hands, strengthen the forearms and leave your upper body feeling like it's the foundation you need for plank, push-ups, arm balances and handstands.
Instead of using moveable props you’ll make use of surfaces to get feedback. Find a wall and floor space that allows you to spread out. Enjoy exploring movement with feedback from the wall and floor separately and then together.
