“A “matriarchal 🌍” does not mean matrilineal or that one 👑 shall rule the 🌍. It simply means “a 🌍 in which a Mother’s 💛 leads all social institutions, corporations, and governments.” All humans-men, women, or transgender-can embody a mother’s 💛 if they so choose. We are destined for extinction as a human race unless a mother’s 💛 assumes leadership of the 🌍.”
― Ananda Karunesh, A Thousand Seeds of Joy: Teachings of Lakshmi and Saraswati
Triangle, aka Utthita Trikonasana, is one of the best known and most commonly practiced yoga poses. A major stretch for the hamstrings and hips, as well as a chest opener, this pose can also be a serious strengthener of the core and legs. It’s important to stay engaged and actively lengthen in the pose, not just tip over and hang, so as to get all the benefits. Join me on Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga to practice engaging and being your most present in each pose.
The recent full moon and never ending heatwave have me feeling a crazed and therefore grateful for my daily yoga practice to ground me. Moving, letting go of obsessive thought patterns, letting go of stored stress and sadness in my body, allows me to move more freely throughout the rest of my day. Join me Tuesday morning at 9:30am @lucentyoga to feel the benefits of this moving meditation and you might even forget the temperature outside.
The temperatures are rising in NYC making sweating unavoidable. So, if you’re going to get sweaty it may as well be doing some fun, detoxing, energizing and opening yoga with me. Join me Saturday at 4:30pm @lucentyoga and see if the heat can help you find a greater height in your practice. 💦
