Episode 123// In Conversation with Andrea Sanders

December 17th, 2014

Episode 123 of Sunrose Yoga is a conversation with Andrea Sanders. I have known Andrea for years, since we were both living in Seattle, and it was really fun to talk about practice and projects together.

Andrea calls herself a "self-taught soul navigator." She has traveled around the globe, worked directly with the public in sharing conservation efforts in the marine & zoological fields, and studied and trained extensively with amazing teachers under the sophisticated traditions of Buddhism and Yoga. She supports individuals in understanding more about themselves and how they connect to their world. Andrea also encourages social responsibility, day to day mindfulness, attention, and physical wellness. She helps to inspire a lifestyle that is vibrant and alive. She offers practical and supportive guidance for living life with less stress, more connection, and greater passion.

Learn more about Andrea at Sutra Project and connect with her on Instagram.

Episode 121// Truth & Bravery

December 3rd, 2014

In this episode, we talk about Satya// Truth. Satya is one of the yamas on the eight-limbed path of yoga as described by Patanjali. Aligning with truth/honesty/integrity requires bravery, so we support our practice with some inner fine-tuning: pranayama (breath & energy work), abhaya mudra (i am not afraid) and some deeply supportive movements.

This is what my friend Meghan calls "next-level yoga". It is slow and subtle. It is suitable for all levels of practice and if you find yourself feeling bored, anxious, mad or blissed-out, you are onto something!

Thank you for being here.

LOVE.

Episode 119// Head-Stand From The True-Heart

November 18th, 2014

Sunrose Yoga Podcast/ Online Yoga Class with Kelly Sunrose/

Hi beautiful people,

So glad to be here with you today. I taught this class this morning, under a balsamic moon. It is clear and cold here in Portland, and we began class with a discussion about how autumn is affecting our bodies and energy. This time of year (in the Northern Hemispehere) tends to scatter and pull our energy and can leave us feeling depleted. We worked with some centering in the Manipura Chakra, physically located around the solar plexus. It felt very grounding!

This class is an all-levels class, where we get into the nitty-gritty of the shoulders and core. We practice sirsasana using the 3-block method. If you have never practiced this before, check out this video first.

Also, NO WEIGHT ON YOUR HEAD! (I rarely give directions in all-caps, so you know I mean it. <3)

Thank you for being here.

LOVE.

Episode 117// Heart-Healing & Heart-Breaking

October 24th, 2014

Dear-ones,

Thank you so much for being here. Truly. Really.

This class, oh it is near and dear to me. When we had newborns, one of my girlfriends mentioned how every moment with a baby is heart-breaking and heart-healing. That was such medicine to me, and I have carried it with me ever since, in every breath. This class evolved naturally from my usual beginning-of-class invitation for students to share any sort of news. It just blossomed from there. That is the yoga.

Practically speaking, it is a full-length class suitable for yogis of all sorts, which we all are. LOVE.
