Does this insane NYC weather have you feeling confused, not knowing which way is up or down, what season we’re in or even just what coat to wear on any given day? Me too! Thank goodness for the consistency of yoga and deep hip openers with their stress and emotional releasing powers. Join me on the days and times listed below to find your serenity (and also hold onto your summer abs 😉) @lucentyoga.
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. ✨
January 1st is a fabulous day for positive healthy actions. Therefore, I can’t think of a better way to start it than with an invigorating yoga class taught by yours truly. Join me bright and early at 9:30am @lucentyoga where we’ll open, bind, twist, and then open some more to make room for all the positive vibes of 2019. ✨
Plow Pose, aka Halasana, is an amazing full body stretch. Plow opens the chest and shoulders, lengthens the spine and hamstrings, calms the mind, and last but not least, stimulates the thyroid. Expect to find yourself in this pose in my Saturday 4:30pm class @lucentyoga See you soon!
“Yoga is the fountain of youth. You’re only as young as your spine is flexible.” – Bob Harper
This quote couldn’t be more true and it’s never too early to start worrying about your back health. Spine flexibility, core strength and open hips are all super important as we age, the more we have of each, the less chance of injury and pain. So start your Monday in prime health by joining me @lucentyoga at 7am. Your back will thank you. 😉
‘Tis the season for extra cocktails, treats and fun that eventually leave you feeling like garbage. So come twist out your holiday toxins with me @lucentyoga at 4:30pm on Saturday. Then head off to your next eggnog laden affair.
Flexibility is important both in mind and body. Flexibility of the body helps with balance, helps one to achieve full range of motion, and also can help to prevent injury and back pain. A flexible mind helps one go throughout their day with less stress and the ability to learn new things. Yoga brings both into one’s life. So join me @lucentyoga on Saturday at 4:30pm to become more nimble in your life.
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.
