The long week of clouds, humidity and rain has finally ended but left most of us in as bad of a mood as the weather. Luckily for you, I have TONS of hip opening planned for my 4:30pm Saturday class @lucentyoga to help you let go of those rainy day blues. I can’t think of a better way to shake off any lingering bad vibes. See you soon!
Bow Pose, aka Dhanurasana, is a favorite of mine. It opens the entire front of the body from the shoulders and chest, through the hips on down to the ankles. If you rock back and forth you gently massage the internal organs and help with digestion. As Bow Pose is a backbend, it’s also is an energizing pose, concluding that there’s really nothing this fabulous asana can’t do! Come to my 12:30pm Thursday class @lucentyoga to feel its wonders for yourself. ✨
Although it can be brutal when it hits the 90’s, the warm weather helps open the body for deeper stretches. One of my favorite poses to teach in the summer months is Hanumanasana, aka the Splits, because the heat allows even the stiffest of students to find some version. Join me on Tuesday at 9:30am @lucentyoga to get super long and smiley.
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.
Revolved Triangle, aka Parivrtta Trikonasana, is an intense stretch of the hamstrings and lower back. This pose also helps detox the body by stimulating the digestive organs in the twist, as well as opens the chest and shoulders. Expect plenty of twists and perhaps some chances to take flight in my Saturday 4:30pm class @lucentyoga. See you soon!
