Upavistha Konasana B is part of Ashtanga Primary Series. It requires a decent amount of flexibility but it’s really about engaging the correct lower ab muscles to balance…and to get up into it from laying on your back. The most important thing to remember is to laugh if you don’t get there in your first or even fifth try. Remember, you’re doing yoga to open up and let go, and if you fall over, that’s ok. Just giggle and give it another shot. Meet me at my 4:30pm Saturday class @lucentyoga where you’ll get plenty of opportunities to put this idea into play.

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius

True!!!! Life is how you look at it. If you let every tiny thing annoy you and decide that your life is terrible, then it is. If you instead shake off the little things and look at larger problems as issues that will eventually be resolved then life can be wonderful. Unfortunately towards the end of the winter, due to not enough sunlight and too much cold, even the happiest of people can start to become less chipper. The simple solution is to focus on more self care, aka more sleep, healthier food, spending time with friends and exercise. Join me on Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga and spend 75 minutes on your self care. Your body and mind will thank you afterwards with a brighter resolve. And hey, if that doesn’t work then there’s always chocolate. 😉

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!

If you want your week to be positive and productive, you have to make healthy, positive choices in your self care routine. Yoga is a fabulous option as it brings about mindfulness that makes the rest of your choices much easier. Join me bright and early Monday morning at 7am @lucentyoga and start your week looking up!
