Midway/Heber peeps...it's happening! I'm finally back teaching/creating SUP YOGA at the new Wasatch Aquatics Center, a year round "floating studio" with great music! TUESDAYS 8:30 (9:00 in August) 🙌🏻 (teaching schedule: Fit Stop Yoga Center, Sundance, Wasatch dance, Centered City Yoga SLC, private classes & Yoga Therapy Clients.) #supyoga #floatingstudio #wasatchcounty #utahyoga #utahyogaandwellness #wasatchaquaticscenter

We did it! A mere taste of 2,500 landscape photos, feeling elation not only fulfilling a 20 year dream with a new heart (! 6 months post open heart surgery) but with a new respect and admiration for my teenage daughters (conquering 108 hard miles, high altitude, below zero temps with not ONE complaint) and the Nepali children/school we helped through humanitarian work. These show mostly Everest herself & Ama Dablam, "mother of Everest" in the chain of the worlds highest peaks, & visiting the worlds highest monasteries. The Himalayas are one of my happy places, with people in these high tiny villages greeting you with "Namaste." Viva Nepal! I'm a happy girl. *ALL WEARING PRANA HALLE PANTS!

Kicked off the backpack & boots and took advantage of this rock & breathing at a "lower" 13,000 ft altitude, nearly 100 miles & 2 weeks in at this point, on our way to Everest Base Camp. A simple little flow in a simple little village (Phortse, Nepal) to loosen up & breathe (which is more difficult at this altitude) In love with the braided, immense Himalaya mountains. Fulfilling my dream of 20 years, with a new heart 6 months post open heart surgery, I feel amazing & I am me again. My life story has many more chapters. And of course I love that the village kids are laughing at me. #alive #happiness #nepal🇳🇵 #everestbasecamp #yoga #yogaflow #dreamcometrue #backpacker @backpackermag @prana @mandukayoga #yogatherapy @andshesdopetoo @mountaingirls @centeredcityyoga @backcountry @sundance_insider @wildwomenofthewasatch @yogaforutah @yogajournalevents @yogajournal @downtownyogafest #intermountainhealinghearts @ihhearts @johnrdoty @alpinebabes #alpinebabes @yogaforutah #myzionadventure #pranainfluencer #outdoorwomen #everest #ebc #ebc2017 #mountaingirls #realhimalaya

Yoga Therapy for structural alignment- What is your posture telling you? Notice the enlarged, overworked left side of her back. Overworking one side of the body to unknowingly compensate the other side is very common. Most of us have one side stronger or more flexible than the other. This beautiful dancer has a gently curved lower spine, (diagnosed by her doctor) right hip higher than the other, making the left side work harder. She's also young and still growing. Left twists & stretches in both upper and lower body are more difficult, yet right side is extremely flexible. Her left trapezius & IT band extremely tight. Sitting upright, her left scapulae stuck out nearly an inch farther back than her right. Though she has no painful inflammation, pain in the cervical and thoracic muscle attachments are usually caused by weaker small postural muscles attached to the spine, which makes the larger muscles (trapezius, rhomboids) work harder to stabilize the spine, becoming overworked, tight, and enlarged. Yoga helps balance strength in these smaller muscles/tissues as well as the majors, as many activities involve mainly major muscle groups. After some therapeutic stretches, assisted twists, and applied pressure to left rhomboid, trapezius, shoulder, & medias, while strengthening the other side as it held/stabilized the poses, both scapulae sat in alignment and the pictured bulge relaxed significantly. Everything is connected, one area effects another as it all works together to create the whole. This girl is so receptive to her body and has loved incorporating yoga into her dance regime. Having this understanding of her structure and movement at her young age will take her far, taking her health seriously by seeing a doctor, getting deep tissue massages, consistent mobility & asking for poses/stretches to help. *We will be working on strengthening those smaller postural muscles to balance the release of tension, enabling her to move more freely in balanced alignment with time. #yogatherapy #yogatherapist #yoga #utahyogaandwellness #wasatchdancecenter #yogafordancers #thaimassage #alignmentmatters @wasatchdance #lovemyjob @mandukayoga @prana

First arm balance 3 months post open heart surgery. -It didn't kick me. I'm far from where I was, but I don't care one bit. The process of starting over & being patient with myself has serious benefits. I feel healthier, happier, stronger, intuitive & alive. Not caught up in what I used to/should be doing. Enjoying feeling awkward, actually FEELING my body, excited to progress with a healed chest & fully repaired heart. Thank you Dr. @johnrdoty for saving/giving me my life back! #takethat #firefly #tittibhasana #intermountainhealinghearts #openheartsurgerysurvivor #utahyoga #yoga #yogatherapy @mandukayoga
