YWA Move Day 10 – Uplift

Ah, uplift - thanks to the YWA Move Day 10 yoga home practice. What a sweet relief to feel some uplift through the body and mind through the gems of yoga. I actually had some mid and lower back tension going into this practice, so the idea of uplift had me a little trepidatious that it would be focused on backbends. Backbends were in there, but it was a lovely mix of as an, and as always, the instruction from Adriene is...

YWA Move Day 9 – Curiosity

Now, curiosity will always lure me in, so what a wonderful theme for YWA Move Day 9! This practice started layering more vocabulary of postures or as an into the 30 days of yoga journey.

I was very happy to practice at home through 2021 with Pixie Lallas of Yoga Vastu, and Peter Scott.  Two senior Iyengar teachers with so much depth and subtlety in their teaching. They both have...

Inhaling a fresh year

Yes, 'New Year' is a time of starting practice.  Renewing practice.  Returning to the new-ness of each moment.  Noticing the fresh quality of each inhalation. New Year is also more life, more change, more challenge. A big hello and hooray to all who are beginning their practice.  I am no expert, I drink deeply of humble tea - but here is what I have found yoga to be: Observing the body in order for change to come.  Observing the mind in order...
