I will be teaching an arm balance and inversion workshop Friday, Jan. 31 from 7:15-9:15pm at the Highland studio. For all of you that want to get on your hands and learn to fly, this is the perfect opportunity to get some flight time in. All levels are welcome, even if you’re brand new to yoga. If you can do a chatturanga, you can do an arm balance. We will build a foundation from the ground up to help you take flight – learn proper alignment and how to leverage and balance your weight to maximize strength. Terrified of getting upside down? We will explore many options on how to conquer those fears and turn you into an #inversionjunkie.
I’ve been saying for awhile now that I will be teaching more classes. Well guess what!?! When I return in November the new CorePower Yoga Foothills Studio is finally opening and you will have plenty of opportunities to come practice with me. I am so excited to be joining the CorePower team and hope to see you all in the studio.
So for those of you that follow along my Instagram or Facebook pages, you may have noticed an abundance of handstand pictures. What’s the deal you ask? Well yogi Lauren Rudick put out a challenge for herself to handstand everyday for a year, and invited others to join in the fun. Naturally, I thought that sounded awesome and took her up on the challenge.
The last year has brought about a lot of changes that ultimately have lead me to this really big one… Moving to Salt Lake City. I’ve grown up for the most part in Florida and after a few years in North Carolina, found myself back in FL again last year. I’ve always known that I didn’t want to stay there, even in grade school, but somehow kept ending up there. College because of scholarships, then I started skydiving and FL had ideal year round conditions, then there was a guy, the list goes on… And the whole time in the back of my mind I knew I wanted to see and do more. Experience more of what this amazing planet has to offer.
March Madness Day 7:
There was such great success with Jon’s video, Why We Jump, which then led to the dialogue of why we do many other things. Naturally yoga was on the list. We are fortunate to come across so many amazing yogis, whether it is through previous practice, workshops, or mutual friends. Yogis that are just so willing to give and share their knowledge and experience with the world. This sense of community brought the idea of Why We Breathe to life with zero budget, just a belief that the world could use more yoga.
March Madness Day 2:
Many of you see me posting about the classes I’m doing on YogaGlo. So what is this YogaGlo business all about you ask? It’s a way to practice yoga anytime, anywhere, with a host of top-notch teachers with just a few clicks of your mouse. Yes, it really is that simple.
Happy 2013!! I’m not one for resolutions (I say if you want to make a change, just do it. You don’t need to wait for the New Year), but for those of you that are, here are a few to consider if you aren’t doing them already:
The next morning we woke up in Hilo. My dad being the geophysicist extraordinaire that he is took us to Volcanoes National Park. Kilauea is still smoking, a rather eerie sight if you think of the potential destruction when/if she blows again. Jon got to walk through his first lava tube, a massive underground tunnel essentially that once had molten lava rushing through it. We drove through the lava fields leftover from her eruptions in the 70s winding all the way down to the southernmost tip of the island where lava continues to trickle into the ocean. The ground is a wide expanse of black hardened lava, an almost desolate feel compared to the majority of lush foliage and greenery around the rest of the island.
