I love inversions for so many reasons, not just because they are fun. Inversions help to move lymph which helps your immune system, they help to flush the adrenal glands which help with anxiety and depression and they help to keep the core strong as well. Expect to give one or two a try in my Saturday 4:30pm class @lucentyoga and see the benefits for yourself!

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.

Diver’s Pose is a challenging balance, looking and feeling exactly as the name implies. The core is engaged to help hold the pose, your legs are both stretched and strengthened as they lengthen but engage to stay steady. And the chest is opened as the arms are winged. Join me @lucentyoga on Saturday at 4:30pm and perhaps this pose will fill you with enough joy to dive into your next life adventure, or at least some weekend fun.

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.

I bend so that I don’t break. Living in NYC is a constant compromise. You must be able to let go of previous physical boundaries due the constant onslaught of people on the street or subways, let go of what you used to consider quiet for the hum of cars, trains and sirens, and learn to not just live but enjoy the concrete jungle as your home. Oddly living in such a busy, loud, crowded space has made me more easy going and able to find relaxation even during a loud cramped MRI. Although I’m sure my daily 19 year yoga practice hasn’t hurt. Join me @lucentyoga to let go of any hidden stress and also become more aware of your ability to physically and mentally compromise so as to float versus trudge through your day.

Downward Dog Split, one of my favorite poses, …

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.
