Reverse Warrior, aka Peaceful Warrior, is a graceful yet strong pose. This pose strengthens the legs and core while opening the chest and side ribs. It’s important to remember to keep the front leg bent as only the upper body bends back (otherwise it becomes a Reverse Triangle). Come and practice your Reverse Warrior with me at my 4:30pm Saturday 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. ✨

Lately I’ve been loving Dolphin Pose, aka Forearm Downdog. A fabulous stretch for the chest and shoulders while also strengthening them at the same time. For those looking to up their arm balance or inversion game this pose is a must as it helps build forearm muscle and thus fortifies the wrists. And of course, holding this pose, or shifting forward and then back (aka Dolphin Push-ups),helps strengthen the core and stretch the hamstrings. 💫

Looking ahead to the long weekend and planning on making it awesome. Join me @lucentyoga at 9:30am on Thursday before you leave town (or stay in town) to get wild for the last unofficial weekend of the summer. We’ll tone, sweat and stretch so that you can sail ahead into September with a smile.

Mondays can be challenging. Yoga helps. Meet me on the mat at 12:30pm @lucentyoga to make yours a bit less formidable.

Mercury is in retrograde, a full moon is on the horizon, an eclipse too and it’s Leo season, so crazy people like me are running wild feeling full of ourselves. Thank goodness I’m teaching twice @lucentyoga this weekend to help bring some zen to these insane times. Good luck out there (I’ve already broken my toe crossing the street) and see you in the mat!

Friday – 12:30pm

Saturday- 4:30pm

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. Have you always wanted to do cool, weird tricks with your body to freak people out on dates or at dinner parties? Then join me on Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga for a fun class to improve your flexibility (and strength and posture and mood, aka EVERYTHING) and then wow your friends with some bizarre tricks of your own. 😉
