Plow Pose, aka Halasana, is an amazing full body stretch. Plow opens the chest and shoulders, lengthens the spine and hamstrings, calms the mind, and last but not least, stimulates the thyroid. Expect to find yourself in this pose in my Saturday 4:30pm class @lucentyoga See you soon!
Flexibility is important both in mind and body. Flexibility of the body helps with balance, helps one to achieve full range of motion, and also can help to prevent injury and back pain. A flexible mind helps one go throughout their day with less stress and the ability to learn new things. Yoga brings both into one’s life. So join me @lucentyoga on Saturday at 4:30pm to become more nimble in your life.
Yoga PSA: The holidays are upon us. And while this brings plenty of fun, it also brings plenty of rich food, alcohol and sugar. Should this make your stomach feel less than awesome, rocking back and forth in Bow Pose (aka Dhanurasana) stimulates the digestive system and helps get things running in their proper order. If you want to feel your absolute best though, check out one of my classes this weekend @lucentyoga listed below.

Downward Dog Split, one of my favorite poses, always feels fabulous whenever I come into it. The hamstrings are both strengthened and stretched, along with the core and shoulders. If you want to get more into the hips, just bend your extended leg and stack your hips. Join me Tuesday morning at 9:30am @lucentyoga to explore the possibilities of this pose for yourself.
No, that’s not a mystery hand on my right inner thigh, it’s my own left hand as I’m in a half bound triangle.

The recent full moon and never ending heatwave have me feeling a crazed and therefore grateful for my daily yoga practice to ground me. Moving, letting go of obsessive thought patterns, letting go of stored stress and sadness in my body, allows me to move more freely throughout the rest of my day. Join me Tuesday morning at 9:30am @lucentyoga to feel the benefits of this moving meditation and you might even forget the temperature outside.
