Another helpful #tuesdaytip from our trusty #yogaexplorations teacher Elizabeth Silas.
Shoulder slump usually has (at least) two parts. Do either of these feel familiar?⠀
1. The top of the upper arm bone shifts forward too much.⠀
2. The top of the upper arm bone rotates internally too much.
Two ways to undo your shoulder slump before you bear weight in your arms (whether you're going to weight train or practice yoga or just pick up your suitcase).⠀
In the first position: as you push your elbow into the block, pull your hand away from the wall.⠀
(That's re-establishing external rotation, which is the opposite of what you've been doing all day (while typing, mousing, driving, picking up kids or heavy objects).)⠀
In the second position: as you push your elbow into the block, keep your chin low and pull your head back (like the wall smells a little bad).⠀
(That's also the opposite of what most of us do all day; we tend to let the head crane forward along with the tops of the upper arm bones.)⠀
In both: When you get into these two positions, keep your shoulder away from the wall (top of the upper arm bone BACK) as you PUSH the elbow into the block firmly. This keeps the head of the humerus moving back--where it belongs.⠀
If you tend to slump through the shoulders in those two ways, starting your practice with some work like this can help "wake up" the muscles that keep your shoulders aligned!⠀

Having celebrated our eighth anniversary yesterday, we thought it was the perfect time to dedicate today’s #teacherfeature to our fierce leader, Darcy Providente. Darcy has been in the fitness industry for over 25 years and is Chagrin Yoga’s co-owner and lead instructor with over 13 years of yoga-specific experience under her belt!⠀

Darcy teaches Power Vinyasa at 9:30am on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays, and at 4:30 on Friday afternoons. She also teaches Vinyasa Flow on Tuesdays at 4:15pm and Power Lunch on Wednesdays at noon. Darcy’s teaching style is energetic, upbeat and powerful… you’ll definitely walk out of her classes sweaty and exhausted, but also filled with a sense of renewal!⠀

Darcy started Chagrin Yoga’s 200 hour level Yoga Teacher Training program back when the studio first opened, and is just finishing up with the 16th group of graduates this December.⠀

When Darcy is not teaching or practicing yoga, she loves hanging out and playing with her three adorable dogs, two children and her amazing husband, Bryan. She loves savory food and enjoys experimenting with cooking food in new ways. ⠀

Darcy’s vision for Chagrin Yoga remains the same as it was when the studio doors opened eight years ago. She and Robin have created a welcoming and supportive space for members of this community to reap the benefits of yoga, regardless of age, gender, body type or fitness level. Staying connected to this community is Darcy’s passion and she loves everything about her Chagrin Yoga tribe! ❤️🙏

Today we’re highlighting Erica Leone as our #teacherfeature of the week. Erica has been teaching yoga for two and a half years and focuses mostly on vinyasa style classes with an emphasis on how important it is to connect your body to your overall spiritual health. ⠀

Here at Chagrin Yoga, Erica teaches Power Lunch on Mondays at noon and Yoga Basics on Thursdays at 5:45pm.⠀

Erica loves yoga and says the part that surprises her most is how just a little core strength goes a long way. With a regular yoga practice, she notices her posture becomes straighter, her back pain goes away, her knees get stronger and her balance improves. She says “You work your core every class and don’t even realize it… and that’s a beautiful thing!”⠀

Outside of yoga, Erica plays the ukulele, takes her dog on hikes (and pretty must everywhere else she goes) and she loves to hula hoop dance! ⠀

Vishali Gupta is our #teacherfeature of the week. Vishali has been teaching classical Hatha Yoga for seven years after receiving her 200 hour RYT certificate through Chagrin Yoga’s very first teacher training program.⠀

Here at Chagrin Yoga, Vishali teaches Slow Flow on Thursdays at 11:15am and Fridays at 11am. She also teaches Gentle Rejuvenative Thursdays at 12:30pm, Yoga for Healthy Backs Saturdays at 12:15pm, and Meditation & Flow Sundays at 3:30pm. Vishali incorporates props and deep restorative poses into her classes. She also introduces her students to classical meditation techniques from Indian scriptures including the Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, Upanishads and more.
If you're interested in deepening your understanding of yoga, you'll want to save the date: Saturday, November 18th at 1:30pm to attend a brand new workshop called "Demystifying Yoga" led by Vishali and Darcy. During this workshop, you’ll begin to uncover all the many layers of yoga including the significance of different asanas, mudras, mantras and pranayama. ⠀
Vishali’s favorite pose is Goddess because it opens her hips and lower back and makes her feel lighter in her spine. When Vishali is not teaching or practicing yoga, she loves Indian cooking, spending time with her family, chanting and hiking.⠀

This week’s #teacherfeature spotlight is on Melanie Tessmer who has been with us since the very beginning, back in November of 2009… another Chagrin Yoga lifer!⠀

Melanie teaches Power Vinyasa on Sundays at 2:30 pm and Mondays at 6:45 pm. She also teaches our Power Yoga Basics class, which is held Wednesdays from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. During this class, she focuses on the basic elements that make up Power Vinyasa. It’s the perfect class for beginners to try out as they transition from Yoga Basics to Power Vinyasa. ⠀

Melanie’s classes progress gradually from a peaceful warm-up to an intense, powerful flow and are always accompanied by her warm, soothing and encouraging voice. She plays great music and has a gift for coordinating her playlists perfectly with her sequences. ⠀

Melanie says her favorite pose is frog pose because it taught her how to surrender. She loves yoga for the way it makes her feel after each asana practice. Outside of the studio, Melanie is an Occupational Therapist and has been working in nursing homes for 15 years. She loves music, reading, movies and exercise. ⠀

I don’t teach a challenging, sweaty vinyasa practice every week, so when I do, it feels like a special treat! Power Yoga tonight with me at 7:15pm @chagrinyoga 😍

I’ve been practicing yoga pretty much everyday for a few weeks now.
layers are peeling back.
creating space between my words.
catching myself when I’m not listening to my feelings.
more breath focused off the matt.
living in that sweet spot, more.
so thankful for amazing teachers like @yoembee who hold the space.
I needed your class last night.
teachers have the power to make a powerful impact.
know that YOU are.
we are all students & teachers.
“Each day elevate one person. Make elevation your religion and you shall reach infinity.” -Yogi Bhajan

It’s chilly outside, but we’ll heat things up in barre at 5pm today. We have Therabands now, so we will spice up this simple lunge-balance move with banded resistance! 💪🏽

Me and Cathy (and her fur babies) at the @chagrinyoga Fashion Show on Friday!

Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean it’s time to ditch your highlight, am I right?? Thank you @redken for providing the best products to create this look and @jvlia_fine for giving me the opportunity to work with you!

As students of yoga, we often first focus on just getting the feet and hands in the right spots. 🤚🏽 Then we begin to attend to the breath. 💨 Then maybe we wake up the core. 🌪 As we focus on the physical efforts, the process begins to affect our mental and emotional layers, as well. ❤️ We can concentrate on smaller, more subtle aspects of the postures and breath (see how my top hand and wrist curve a bit? and my back leg's hip drops?). ⚡️ When we do this, can we stay open to the possibility that there's nothing wrong with the way we're doing it already? There are lots of ways to move and breathe. We want to tap into more options, not fewer. ✅✅✅ So when I offer you a way to lift your back leg's hip in revolved triangle, it's not because you're doing it wrong. It's because I've been there and I want to offer you a few ways to be there, too. Each one feels different and has its own benefits and drawbacks. 👍👎 And then, if we let it, yoga offers us new ways of responding emotionally and mentally to situations far more challenging than revolved triangle. 🗣👥 Why stay stuck in the rut of only responding to a challenging situation in one way? Let's notice our many options.

This week’s #teacherfeature spotlight is on Lori Grbac, who has been teaching yoga for 7 years. She received her 200 hour RYT certificate through Chagrin Yoga’s very first teacher training program. Lori loves everything about yoga… the heat, the sweat, the strength, the stillness. She believes every little bit teaches us something about ourselves. She strives to share this love of yoga with her students during each of her classes.⠀

Lori teaches Yoga Pump on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:45am. Yoga Pump is a challenging class that combines the flexibility of yoga with the strength of weight training. She also teaches Power Vinyasa on Tuesdays at 9:30am, and Vinyasa Flow on Wednesdays at 8:15am. Lori’s classes are challenging and fun, incorporating a mix of power yoga and some cross fitness moves with great music that will leave you feeling strong, limber, relaxed and rejuvenated!⠀

Lori is a lover of music and art. She loves painting and walking her two beautiful huskies. She enjoys being surrounded by family and friends, food and wine, music and sunshine. ⠀
