Upavistha Konasana B is part of Ashtanga Primary Series. It requires a decent amount of flexibility but it’s really about engaging the correct lower ab muscles to balance…and to get up into it from laying on your back. The most important thing to remember is to laugh if you don’t get there in your first or even fifth try. Remember, you’re doing yoga to open up and let go, and if you fall over, that’s ok. Just giggle and give it another shot. Meet me at my 4:30pm Saturday class @lucentyoga where you’ll get plenty of opportunities to put this idea into play.

Urdhva Padmasana is usually only practiced as part of Ashtanga Primary Series. This pose requires enough flexibility to get into full lotus and then the core strength to balance. A great hip opener, and arm and core strengthener, plus it’s also fabulous for the thyroid. If this pose peaks your interest you will get the opportunity to give it a shot in my Saturday 4:30pm class @lucentyoga.

It’s a new year which brings fresh perspective. It’s time to try some new things, explore the roads you’ve yet to take, or even go deeper in a yoga pose than you’d imagined possible. But these new choices should be informed from everything you did previously (that perhaps didn’t work out as well), so that they’re not really wild ideas, just better ones. Maybe in 2019 you don’t react so quickly to an upsetting text, or you make sure to show up on time to meet up with friends, or you decide that you’re going to carefully set kapotasana as your year end yoga goal. So set your intentions and then join me at my 4:30pm Saturday class @lucentyoga, and see what unfolds after you meditate on them for 75 minutes. ✨

Bhujapidasana, aka Shoulder Press Pose, is a fun arm balance that strengthens the arms and wrists, opens the inner thighs and tones the abs. It’s important to remember to engage the core to keep from falling back and to squeeze the shoulders to keep from sliding down. You may find yourself dangling in this pose (and many more) in either of my classes @lucentyoga listed below.

Thursday – 12:30pm

Friday – 5pm

Marichyasana A is an intense opening pose from the ashtanga Primary Series. The chest, shoulders and hips are opened with the bind and the spine and hamstrings are lengthened with the forward fold. Join me at my 7am Wednesday class @lucentyoga to feel its wonders for yourself. See you soon!
