Baddha Konasana, aka Bound Angle Pose, is a relaxing stretch that opens the thighs, groin and knees. Traditional texts claim that it reduces fatigue and destroys all disease. This is pose is always a wonderful way to begin to wind down a rigorous class as these yogis here are doing.

“My idea is that the development of life must lead to forms of existence that will be possible without nourishment and which will not be shackled by consequent limitations.  Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?” -Nikola Tesla

Pondering breatharianism.


Upside down play time. I’ve been focusing so much on inverting and moving, it was nice to just get vertical 😉 Crop top and liquid leggings by @gtsclothing

Reclining Hero Pose

Start in hero pose (knees touching and feet placed wider than your hips, your butt sitting on the floor). Then, slowly lean back, help yourself with your hands, then your elbows until you’re laying down. If you struggle getting there, I suggest you stay simply in hero pose because it can be dangerous for your back, knees, ankle or all, even more if you’re injured. If you don’t struggling, then keep the pose a couple of breaths and come back up the same way you got down: gently and slowly.


Stretches the abdomen, thighs and deep hip flexors, knees, and ankles. Relieves tired legs. Improves digestion and helps relieves the symptoms of menstrual pain.


Débutez dans la position du héros (les genoux se touchent et les pieds sont posés plus larges que les hanches, vos fesses sont alors assises au sol). Après, penchez-vous lentement vers l’arrière en vous aidant de vos mains puis de vos coudes jusqu’à ce que vous soyez étendu sur le sol. Si vous avez de la misère à vous rendre là, je suggère que vous restiez dans la pose du héros. Allez plus loin pourrait être dangereux pour votre dos, vos genoux, vos chevilles ou tout cela, encore plus si vous êtes déjà blessé. Si vous êtes à l’aise, garder la pose quelques respirations et retourner à la position de base du héros de la même façon dont vous êtes descendu: lentement et doucement.


Étire l’abdomen, les cuisses, les fléchisseurs des hanches, les genoux et les chevilles. Soulage les jambes fatiguées, améliore la digestion et aide à soulager les maux menstruels.

Valentine’s Day…a day to celebrate the love in your life, or at the very least, an excuse to eat tons of chocolate. Luckily for you, there are ample times to work off the excess sugar (and/or sadness over a lack of 💕in your life) with me, doing yoga, on both Wednesday and Thursday. So live it up today and sweat it off tomorrow! Times and studios listed below.

As in the west there are various systems of magic, so in the east are there various systems of Yoga, each of which purports to lead the aspirant from the realm of Maya to that of truth in Samadhi. The most important of these are:
1) Gnana Yoga- Union by Knowledge
2) Raja Yoga- Union by Will
3) Bhakta Yoga- Union by Love
4) Hatha Yoga- Union by Courage
5) Mantra Yoga- Union through Speech
6) Karma Yoga- Union through Work

When you’ve done nothing but lounge and indulge in naps and mimosas all day, a little pre-bedtime flow is most definitely in order. How do you find balance?✨
