Triangle, aka Utthita Trikonasana, is one of the best known and most commonly practiced yoga poses. A major stretch for the hamstrings and hips, as well as a chest opener, this pose can also be a serious strengthener of the core and legs. It’s important to stay engaged and actively lengthen in the pose, not just tip over and hang, so as to get all the benefits. Join me on Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga to practice engaging and being your most present in each pose.
The temperatures are rising in NYC making sweating unavoidable. So, if you’re going to get sweaty it may as well be doing some fun, detoxing, energizing and opening yoga with me. Join me Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga and see if the heat can help you find a greater height in your practice. 💦
Supta Virasana, or Supine Hero Pose is a deep stretch opening the entire front of the body. This pose targets the quads and hip flexors, as well as the shins, and also elongates the abs and opens the chest. It feels fabulous after a long day (or even better after a long week). Join me Saturday afternoon at 4:30pm @lucentyoga to let go of this extra heavy past week. See you soon!
