🧘🏻‍♀️ It’s Day! Our pose of the week is or
.
.
🔻 I have had a great number of students tell me they despise chair pose - I get it, it’s not my fave either! But it is a valuable pose in terms of building strength, endurance & Twistability.
.
.
.
✔️ PROPS & VARIANTS :
.
✏️ Slide 2 :
.
1/ Sitting in a CHAIR allows you to work on the twist without the leg strength challenges.
.
2/ Another way to work the twist with a reduced leg demand is by taking a knee to the FLOOR.
.
3/ If you are not quite able to close the ‘armpit gap’, you will need a BLOCK to land the lower hand on. Better to have the hand ‘grounded’ than floating.
.
4/ An interesting alternative is to use the WALL for leverage to build your twist.
.
5/ Another prop is to take your pose all the way to the FLOOR. A deep kneel helps you practice the compression necessary in the hips for the full standing pose.
.
.
.✔️ VARIANTS :
.
✏️ Slide 3 :
.
. I have 2 variants for you today. To add a balance challenge, stand on a block. Flip your perspective by taking the pose into a headstand (Ok, this one’s a stretch 😂😂).
.
.
.
.
.
Let me know how it goes! 🔸Be creative, be agile, have fun!

Day 9
#WheelPose
GRIEF
.
Can yoga really help in processing grief?
.
in order to understand this concept let's first discuss how our brains react to things that make us feel good like falling in love. When you’re in the throes of romantic love, areas of your brain’s pleasure centers are overloaded with feel-good neurochemicals, including dopamine and oxytocin. But if you lose that love, those chemical levels plummet and stress hormones such as adrenaline, cortisol, and epinephrine flood in, bringing with them anxiety and sadness. That influx of stress hormones also launches your nervous system into fight-or-flight mode. As a result, extra blood flows to your muscles, which tense up for action, sometimes causing that tight, squeezing sensation in your chest
.
The mayoclinic.org says ‘Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, enhances your brain’s use of glucose and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues.’
.
Once released into your bloodstream you can't simply put stress hormones back into your adrenal gland. A clinically proven way to release stress is through exercises like yoga
.
It is no wonder that my body gravitated towards yoga when I felt sadness after the passing of my father
How yoga consoled my soul when I lost my business
I can recount countless times I went to my mat for solitude and peace
.
Tell us how yoga was your hope I'm times of grief
.
Thank you for all your wonderful sharing
Your transparency is so refreshing
Namaste dear yogis

hot days bring ample ways to bend | come explore flexibility + breath retention 🔥 today + thursday . 4:30 . 4r . $8 🔥

Backbends are a great way of opening us up to the world. They take bags of courage as they make us expose ourselves and encourage us to overcome our fears on the mat which ultimately can give us more courage off the mat too.
🌼
Backbends open the chest and upper body and they stimulate the Heart chakra (Anahata) which can allow us to be more open in our lives; to embrace our emotions and experiences, and to be more open in our relationships.
🌼
Strong backbends can sometimes release locked emotions, such as frustration, fear, anger and sadness as well as releasing feelings of joy, love and happiness.
🌼
Make sure you go safely and mindfully into your backbend practice and enjoy the benefits of the release. Stay connected with the breath and practice with softness. As always preparation is key.
