YWA Move Day 12 – Focus

The YWA Move Day 12 practice came at a time where my focus was less than 100%.  I have been sick, and I noticed that I couldn't pull my attention into a sharper area when prompted to by Adriene. Still, it was a good to practice the act of focusing anyway, even if it wasn't coming fully. I guess that's what practice is! Happily, I was able to access some grace, even with my ankle wobbles, during the balancing poses. That is, I...

YWA Move Day 5 – Deepen

The YWA Move day 5 practice from Yoga With Adriene was indeed a gentle deepening. I love that the process of deepening with the breath and presence is a three dimensional opening in the body mind. I love that this can be expressed and practiced simply, scientifically, or esoterically. I love that the experience of this opening is what is of primary importance - because the experience is open to everyone, no matter how they express what's happening. I entered back into the...

YWA Move Day 3 – Stretch

YWA Move Day 3 practice from Yoga With Adriene stretched me, indeed. It was a gentle stretch, pleasurable. I tapped into some asana I do little less often, and the gentle visit there felt like a greeting. I had a rough night last night with a three-year-old and dog, and today I had been feeling sluggish and uninspired to work. I ended up doing the practice at the end of the day, right before picking up a kid.  I actually walked the...

YWA Move Day 2 – Open

YWA Move Day 2 - Open was another beautiful, kind, heartfelt practice from Yoga With Adriene. The theme was 'open' and after experiencing this session I now feel invigorated yet very relaxed. I mean, that's the ideal, right:) I noticed some thoughts of resistance or wanting to quit around the abdominal sequence of ywaMove.  I noticed how thoughts of not wanting to extend the comfort zone, and not want to do something where I feel 'weak' or 'fat' can be obvious, yes,...

YWA Move Day 1 – Here

YWA Move Day 1 is up, check it out here.  It is so wonderful to be moving and being present by practicing Yoga With Adriene again. She is a clear vessel and it is beautiful. I stayed present and was here to notice any small feelings of jealousy or comparison or trepidation at being physically pushed wash through. I am sweaty!  It is summer in Melbourne and from a still, slow start she got us moving already in YWA Move Day 1. Sometimes...

Yoga With Adriene: Move in 2022

Hello, hello. Happy New Year.  Welcome to 2022. 2021 was, again, a time of extraordinary pressure for so many. I made a significant move in 2021, and after settling, I feel grateful for my self, the love I have for others, and the sense of renewal I have within. 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...
