Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude Yoga Class – Five Parks Yoga



This free yoga class is dedicated to creating an attitude of gratitude toward yourself, your life, and others via the avenues of movement and breath, as well as healing hand mudras and a quote by Rumi.

As an act of gratitude toward YOU – my students and supporters – I would like to offer a discount toward renting Casa Colorado where most of my yoga classes in Costa Rica are filmed and published. Thank you for everything you do to support my channel. Learn everything you need to know at:

Included in this class are hand mudras (Anjali mudra and Lotus mudra), as well pranayama (breathing), and asana (physical postures) that will enhance your experience of gratitude.

Class begins in Child’s pose with reverse Anjali mudra, as we set an intention for class. Warm-up includes cat/cow and modified side plank variations. After Downward dog stretches, you can enjoy crescent lunges, crescent moons, half splits, and more.

Standing postures include Warrior 2, reverse warrior, standing forward fold, extended side angle, prayer squat, wide-legged standing forward fold, skandasana. Build heat in plank pose, side plank, chaturanga, jiva splits, and more.

Balance poses include Half Moon pose, staff pose, tree pose (with mudra variations).

Deep stretches include pigeon, shoulder stretches, camel, bridge pose, spinal twists, knees to chest.

Class ends with Savasana. Enjoy reminders throughout the class to re-connect to feelings of gratitude.

From my heart to yours,
Namaste

  11. Hi Erin – your yoga videos have been such a blessing during COVID when my favorite yoga studio went under. Your classes are a true gift.

  12. Greetings from Malaysia. Thank you Erin for the relaxing workout. LOVE it. My getting old body can take almost all the moves.

  13. This class was so fitting for my 3rd day of covid recovery! Although I was back on my feet a few days before I returned to my mat, my strength had not even begun to return until I started practicing again. This flow encouraged many thoughts and feelings of gratitude. You are my healer and teacher in so many ways!

  14. Erin I love the quote you recited in this class. Who said it again? Where can I find it? It brought me to tears. This class is amazing. I’m grateful for you!
