Freedom in the Wings

Intermediate I

With a focus on arm positions, this intermediate practice with Ron will offer yogis the opportunity to explore arm placement in postures as a way to: help maintain balance, increase shoulder mobility, understand more options for modifying postures to create more ease, or challenge!

This can either be done as a stand-alone class, as Day 1 of Cultivate Your Inner Teacher 14-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge or as Day 12 of the Daily Dose 30-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

Good imaginative class, however I´m not a fan of all the heavy breathing and sighing (male or female). It´s rather distracting.

that was very intelligently built! like an invitation to open up and explore further, the best kind of class :) i felt the need to add a half pigeon after the seated twist, it fit so naturally there and opened the hamstrings just that much more..
this instantly became one of my favorite classes :)))

This class was a little of everything I needed today: my favorite complementary colors, Wabi Sabi and Qi Gong practice, infinity hips and strong, flexible wings. All gratitude!

Thanks, Ron, for another sensation filled class! It is great how you guide us to consider thoughts via movement, as if we are doing and watching dance at the same time. Your gift of bringing out the sensuality of movement is especially appreciated! Anna

Thank you Ron for this different perspective and your uniqueness. Great class with a feeling of very open shoulders as a consequence. Greetings from Hamburg, Germany.

Another awesome class with Ron - in the bright open by the ocean.
Loving the fluidity and presence - so alive and improvisational perfectly 'imperfect'.
What a diversity of poses in just 35 min, and lots of ahhhh moments. Very fulfilling.
Thank you Ron!

Thank you for yet another amazing practice, Ron. I’m not sure I can express myself well as I’m struggling to find the right words but you always bring such a beautiful and fun energy into practice. It really helps me not only enjoy my time on the mat with you but also helps me truly be in the moment and focus clearly. Thank you.

“Aligning ourselves with what is rather than what we want it to be.” I had to rewind after the practice to hear that again. So beautifully said. Thank you for that gem!

I really appreciate Ron’s attention to space and energy, making this a rich, multidimensional practice. The combination of light attitude and deep practice is just delightful, and yup, my shoulders feel very happy afterward.

This class is ,pre intense than it seems! I have little shoulder mobility, not for any particular health condition, and I had to skip a pose once and again, but overall I found it accessible. Today my upper back feels sore; the "nice kind" of sore of a good, deep workout. It's on bookmarks :)

I absolutely LOVED this class! How have I been a subscriber for a year and not have tried one of your classes?! Can’t wait to try more. I struggle with shoulder mobility and knee issues, your basic I’m getting older situation and this class for some reason made me feel years younger. I love Ron’s energy and style and occasional sigh that makes me think Yes, that how I’m feeling, which for some reason made me work harder. A truly enjoyable class, for me anyhoos,

Lovely way to end my day, just the right amount of stretch and movement. As someone with a shoulder injury, the pace was perfect for figuring out when I needed to substitute for plank or down dog, and getting there. Thank you! Really looking forward to tomorrow.

This was a really great class! I don't usually stretch my arms in that way, but it felt wonderful. Loved the playlist! I was so happy that the first song was by Mickey Hart! That was too cool. Can't wait for day 2!

Thank you, Ron for an uplifting and didactic vinyasa/power yoga session...a wonderful balance of wabi-sabi movement and powerful, instructional poses. Feeling looser and more at ease :).

This was really nice! I was worried at first when I saw it was tagged as Intermediate II but thankfully I was able to follow along. My limbs feel all loose and flow-y :D

Thanks, Ron! You have such fun, uplifting classes. This one really focused on the upper back and shoulders and my legs were still feeling the burn too! It's a quick calmer session for when you have 30 minutes. Thanks!

Thank you for another wonderful class, Ron! An imaginative flows that connects you with the arms and shoulders, their power and flexibility. Ecxcellent for people with overtight shoulders or, at the other extreme, weak and hyperflexible arms. Namaste!
