Oneika leads a practice rooted in this quote from bell hooks: “Love is an action, never simply a feeling.”
The sequence starts with setting an affirmation and committing to expressing love to yourself. You’ll move through spinal openings on the floor, low lunges, chair pose, high lunge, warrior 2, extended side angle, standing splits, yogi squat and close with stretches on the floor.
This class was filmed at The Floor in Brooklyn. Students in the class are fellow teachers Laura Toyofuku-Aki and Francine Taylor.
