Lift Up

Intermediate II

In this class, Tracey helps you find your way into some variations of bakasana, crow pose. Learn how to use your core to find lightness and lift, and enjoy some deep shoulder and hip openers to keep your body fluid and mobile.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 11 of the Daily Dose 30-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

Thank you Tracey. I am not yet able to 'fly', but I sure do get a good stretch!

You're right Tracey, this class does go by fast! So much fun and such lovely hip and shoulder openers, thank you!

I don’t gravitate towards arm balances, and when I saw this class pop up in the 30-day challenge, I went “sigh, ok.” And…I had a blast! This class has a lovely balance of flow, preparation, and playful floating. I’m grateful for the challenge, which has gotten me into some great practices I wouldn’t have chosen otherwise.

Yesterday, I pulled two muscles (one on by back and one between my shoulder and neck) doing another yoga class, so the whole day today I was releasing pain-inspired, old-man-grunts for every "complex" motion - by which I mean scratching my nose or reaching for my cup of coffee. One brandy-based poultice and THIS CLASS later, I'm feeling brand new. You're a healer! Many painless thanks, Tracey...

I have been carrying a child around lately and woke up this morning with a sore right side. I was confused as to why I was drawn to this class and was not expecting to get the stretching I needed in my sides and legs. This class was just the right pace for me, I got all the stretching I needed, and was able to play with peak poses safely. Thank you Tracey!

You’ve quickly turned into my favorite teacher. Thanks so much for your classes, your calm and patience have helped me reach peak poses I’d never done before and find calm for my mind in the process. Really, thank you, thank you.

Tracey, I am always uplifted by the frequency of energy I feel through your teaching! I have been practicing for a few years now and have answered the call to become a yoga teacher as well. I truly hope to help guide others along their paths with the same humility, grace, and light as you do for me! Namaste!

Tracey, your guidance encourages me to go further into the poses and sometimes “get there” and smile. Thank you

Tracey is such a great yoga teacher. This is a wonderful shoulder and IT band stretch. If you like crow/crane, this will give you a chance to practice with legs crossed (twice). Tracey's dynamic personality makes it fun!

Thank you for another awesome class Tracey! I didn't attempt the second crow variation because of accursed collarbone injury, but really enjoyed the class all the same, just adapted that section. Good core work and juicy stretches!

I'm a bakasana fan, so I enjoyed this practice, and the opportunity to try a new variation of crow, as well as some good stretches and core strengthening.

I enjoyed this class! Some of it reminded me a little of Pilates. Definitely feel a stronger core and a little lighter!

Thank you, Tracey, for a class where old asanas were new in small and big ways. It was difficult, and yet, thoroughly invigorating and inspiring, to grow and stretch both mind and body.

This was wonderful and a fun new take on different poses. I love that yoga is ever changing and there is always a new way to flow.

I was glad to try a new class, but this one wasn't for me. It felt uncharacteristically clunky and forced, and the instructions for the second crow variation were hard to follow. That said, it was a good stretch for the shoulders and sides of the body.
