Duration: 30-40
Style: Vinyasa Flow
Level: Intermediate
Focus: Yoga for Flexibility, Upper Body
Teacher: Kassandra Reinhardt


Welcome back! This week I’m offering you a special 30 minute vinyasa flow practice that physically works with your upper body to increase flexibility and release tension through your shoulders, neck and upper back. Emotionally, this is meant to get you in touch with your heart space and open yourself up to healing.

I really believe that our yoga practice has the potential to transform us from within if we’re willing to go there and be present with ourselves in this way. Take whatever you need from this practice and I hope you enjoy it!

This is an intermediate vinyasa flow class and we are using 2 blocks. Cleo also joins us 🙂

    Kassandra, thank you! This was exactly what I needed. My neck was stiff and sore and now feels so much better! I also was able to get in touch with feelings of self love and healthy price. Nice feelings. Thank you

  56. Therese Argoud

    Thank you, Kassandra. This is one of favorites among many. Appreciate the heart opening focus and your thoughtful choreography of the poses. with aloha, therese

    • Kassandra

      Oh love that! Thank you


    Thanks, This is a nice practice. I just have to get more used to having the bricks under my neck and spine, it feels quite uncomfortable, however I know it will help me.

    • Kassandra

      You can always try with a bolster or can pad the blocks with a blanket to ease into it

  58. Elke Schwalm

    I did this without blocks because I am travelling. It’s all doable except the fish pose. I did butterfly forward pose with arms stretching to left and right and happy baby. Not heart openers but strechy. 🙏

    • Kassandra

      Perfect adapting! You can use some pillows to adapt fish in a pinch

  59. Baerbel

    I love this practice. It is one of my top 5 of this year.

    • Kassandra

      Oh love that!
