Nourish your mind, body and spirit while connecting with your strength and flexibility through mindful practice.
On occasion I wonder as I take in a
yoga class when there seems to be a relatively “easy” asana a look of wanting
more.I am fine if I am wrong with this
perception.If you find a pose that you
are not at the present moment feeling an active stretch I invite you to settle
in.There is a lovely feeling of being
fully aware in the body and begin to notice in such a pose that you can relax a
bit more, gently rise up through the spine, and check in with where your
breathing is at.
Upon finishing class yesterday
morning one person said “that is exactly what I needed.” The benefits of yoga
are both tangible and subtle.
Meditation ~ Silence is the
relaxation of mind and body; it is restful and healing.The power of silence preserves energy and
Twists ~ Twists are particularly powerful
detoxifiers. When we twist, we put pressure on the internal organs, and when we
breathe in a twist, we modify that pressure.Stagnant residue can be released from the organs, and when we exhale or
release the twist, the organs are refreshed and better able to do their work. Twists
also detoxify the subtle body by activating the Manipura chakra, located at the
solar plexus, which is the seat of the ego. Twisting the torso where our ego
resides can help break identifications with power or status.

Balance poses improve ankle stability.
Strength speaks for itself.A
practice of yoga can give you the opportunity to reach vast array of muscles.
Flexibility ~ Activities that lengthen and stretch muscles can help you
prevent injuries, back pain, and balance problems. A well-stretched muscle more
easily achieves its full range of motion.

Savasana ~ Rest is healing.Allow your body to integrate your practice.
I look forward to seeing you at
East Bank Yoga.
