“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. 😉

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.

Reverse Warrior, aka Peaceful Warrior, doesn’t tend to get the respect it deserves as it’s usually just thought of as a transitional movement. But this pose has all of the benefits of a traditional asana as it strengthens the legs and core, opens the hips and stretches the side body. Come start your week feeling open and strong with me on Monday at 7am @lucentyoga. See you soon!
