King Pigeon is a very beautiful but intense pose. It opens the hips, both front and back, as well as the chest and shoulders, and last but certainly not least opens the spine with a lengthening backbend. Therefore, it can take a good deal of time of regular yoga practice before this pose is achievable because it requires so much flexibility. Join me Monday morning at 9:30am @lucentyoga where we will be moving and opening towards that gorgeous goal.
Summer is here and so is the muggy heat. But with that humid warmth comes extra flexibility and openness in the body. I love being able to teach poses that some may not be able to access in colder months like the splits and binds, etc. Join me this weekend at any or all of the classes listed below to see where this summer warmth can take you in your practice. ✨

Crow, aka Bakasana, is the root of all yoga arm balances and inversions. It can definitely seem scary when you first attempt to balance the weight of your body, on your hands, your face hovering just a few inches from the ground. But with practice, and the knowledge of which muscles to engage (think core), you start to lift and fly and decide that perhaps there are more arm balances in your future. Watching students stick this pose for the first time is always fun as their excitement becomes contagious. Expect to become contagiously excited, and leave feeling strong and open in and after all of my classes this weekend listed below.

Halasana or Plow Pose is not only fantastic for your thyroid, shoulders and spine but it also feels amazing on your lower back. Instead of doing the more commonly practiced version with tucked toes, I’m practicing the Ashtanga version of Plow, with untucked, pointed toes, in the photo above. This stretches out the shin muscles versus the calves. We will be getting into our Plow and many other poses today in my 5pm Vinyasa class at Sangha Yoga Shala. Hope to see you there!
1️⃣ It is ok to know you are beautiful. It is ok to know you are smart. It is not ok to think that makes you better than anyone else.
2️⃣Smile at the people who won’t smile back, they may not deserve it…but they need it.
3️⃣Look up at the sky and realize the vastness of the world…but also realize that you are an integral expression of it.
4️⃣You will change and evolve into someone completely un-recognizable to you. One day you will realize that you are completely different person than you were 2,5 or 10 years back. That is how it should be. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that is bad thing.
5️⃣Travel, see the world and its amazingness, but don’t forget that everything you seek can be manifested right where you are.
6️⃣Acknowledge every emotion, feeling and thought. No matter how irrational they may be, they are still valid.
7️⃣Meditate, and if u don’t know how…Google it, and do it. Just trust me on this one.
8️⃣Fitness is a lifestyle, not a look.
9️⃣A bad situation can be 1,283,847,478,282 times better by just remembering to breathe.

Half Bound Triangle is a major favorite of mine and almost always included in my classes. A deep chest, hamstring and hip opener but also a leg and core strengthener, this pose has got it all. Expect to explore this pose in both my Thursday classes listed below.

After a 19-year playing career including a stint with the Mets in 1965, Yogi went on to manage the Mets from 1972-1975. His most succesful year as manager with the Mets came during the 1973 season when he lead the team to the NL Pennant. Yogi was known as much for his personality as his play on the field. Here are eight of our favorite Yogi-isms:
1. “Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.”
2. “You can observe a lot by watching.”
3. “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”
4. “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”
5. “It’s like deja-vu, all over again.”
6. “When you arrive at a fork in the road, take it.”
