If yoga is a new adventure for you, or if you've been contemplating taking a class, I want you to know a few things right off the bat:
1. You CAN do yoga
2. If you have a body, any shape at all, you CAN do yoga
3. If you are breathing, you CAN do yoga
4. If you are completely inflexible, you CAN do yoga
5. If you have a disability, amputation, ANY impairment at all, you CAN do yoga
6. If you are in a wheelchair, a bed, or an airplane seat....you CAN do yoga
So are we good now?Do you catch my drift? You CAN do it! I promise you. And if you run into a roadblock, I want you to reach out to me and I'll be happy to share a solution-because there is always a solution. Trust me, accessible yoga isn't a special kind of yoga, it IS YOGA. It is for all people,...
You're running ragged. You haven't stopped moving. The kids, the dog, the work stuff....then you get 30 seconds alone and you fall apart. Sound familiar? You need a reset. Chances are you depleted every ounce of yourself but you were too busy to notice while you were taking care of everyone else.
Or maybe you're working 70+ hours a week and don't allow yourself the time to decompress, de-stress, or take an actual deep breath...
Reiki allows you to receive healing energy while gently allowing balance to return to the body. Originating from Japan as a relaxation technique, reiki can be a spiritual connection, but is not a religion.
We all have energy centers called chakras (also known as spinning wheels of energy) that run from the base of the spine...
Radiance is defined as happiness, beauty and health that can be seen in your face, like the light in your eyes that shines through to others. When you've taken the time to work on your inner transformation, you want the outer you to glow as well!
It's true-when you look good, you feel good! When I'm looking a complete mess (blemishes, hair in a knot..) and need to run out on an errand, I tend to put my head down, drop my shoulders to make myself smaller, praying I'm not seen. Who wants to feel like that? Not me.With so many transformational products out there to help your skin glow, you don't have to.
There are essential questions to ask yourself about your skincare routine, and if you really want to radiate the way you...
Years ago, I think I was like many people who resisted walking into a yoga studio. I felt like I wouldn't be able to hang. I have the tightest hamstrings on earth (I still think I do), I'm not naturally flexible, and when I would try to keep up with yoga DVD's at home, I would practically break my neck trying to watch the instructor because I didn't "know the poses". I think that's the general perception...you have to be an advanced yogi to even walk into a studio-it's SO not true! But I get it.
Fast forward, and I'm the teacher.
Yesterday in my vinyasa class, a student was in my class for the first time because of a last-minute schedule change. She had attempted a yoga class before, and said "never again" after not being able to handle the intens...
Maybe you've driven by the studio like I did for a few years...afraid to come in. I look back now and realize it was kind of silly, and all of my fears were really just wild stories I created in my head. I figured there were only serious yogis in there who would turn their noses up at me-a girl who only did yoga with a dvd at home. And by "did yoga" I mean I tried to follow along with the instructor on the tv, but basically spent the whole time craning my neck to look up, and figure out if I was making the right shape with my body. There was no breath-body connection, no community, and no real "practice" in what I was doing. But it was a place to start.
I will be honest with you-yoga is so much more than a physical exercise. You learn that very...
