yoga strong

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.

“TAKE THE HIGH ROAD. PEOPLE WILL EITHER RISE UP TO JOIN YOU OR FALL OUT OF SIGHT.”

#GoUp

Starting your day with yoga gets your body going while setting your mind at ease. Although it can sometimes be tough to get up earlier to make the time for your practice, it’s always worth it, as the rest of the day seems to always run more smoothly. So set your alarms just a wee bit earlier than normal and join me @sanghayogashala on Wednesday and Thursday at the times below.
Wed 7:30am - Core Vinyasa
Thurs 6:30am - Yoga Express Hour

The nature of yoga is to shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of your body.

Devotional Warrior, aka Humble Warrior, was initially one of my least favorite poses. Although I had plenty of flexibility when I was a beginner, I didn’t have the strength or very good balance, so I would sometimes tip over in this pose. But, many years later, it’s one of my preferred asanas for the intense chest and hip openers as well as all of the leg strength it has helped me build. Join me tonight at 7pm @sanghayogashala for Vinyasa and Wednesday morning at 7:30am for Core Vinyasa and see what this magical pose can do for you.

I kind clarity through the simplest of movements.
I channel all my energy into my muscles, feel each one move and engage.
I am alive and I am grounded.
Here and now. Just like it should be. ✨

If high temps like today and vinyasa flow are your fave ways to detox and get open, then I’ve got some great news. This Tuesday morning you have 2 opportunities to sweat out every last bit of your Monday with me @tangerinehotpoweryoga. Come to either my 7am or 8:30am class where we will find new lightness and strength within the heat so that you can float out into your day. ✨

Galavasana- flying pigeon pose.
Ashtanga third series is especially brutal because half way through the sequence you get to do 7 consecutive headstand to arm balance transitions, on each side, with vinyasas in between and no rest - super fun 😅!
It’s completely exhausting but that’s kind of the point. I tend to sneak in a few extra wrist stretches/ ponytail and clothing adjustments/ unnecessary toilet trips in between -stalling techniques just so I don’t drop dead. Bad lady - I know - I’m still working on my concentration skills. Baby steps!
