What’s your latest practice focus? Tell me in the comments! My focus has been hip flexor stretches (like a boss for long holds). It’s like healing magic for all that ails me right now! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
 Double tap if you’d like me to share on @yogaglo what I’ve been doing to access the psoas, quads, and other hip flexors in my practice!

Something you might not know about me....I’ve always loved animals so much that all I want to do is hug and pet them, even the ones with sharp teeth. 🤦‍️ And even when they obviously don’t want me anywhere near them. I never act on this of course, unless they’re receptive, but the desire is strong! ⠀

Please double tap if you relate and leave an emoticon of your favorite animal!⠀

Does Ankle to Knee Pose get you down? 🧘‍️I posted a pic of me in it the other day and got a few questions in the comments. So I’m answering them in this video - hope it helps! .
Also, I’m obsessed with this new outfit from @prAna. @pranaboulder, I love you.

Agni Stambasana - Fire Log Pose.⠀
⠀
Because when you stack the “firewood” of your legs and bend forward you light a fire !!!!⠀
⠀
The most typical thing I see that holds students back in this pose is not lining up the ankles with the knees and “cheating” so it’s easier to stack the shins. ⠀
⠀
▶️ Pro tip: worry less about stacking the shins and instead let the knees reign high! Keep the ankles lined up with the knees even if that means your knees can’t lower much. Work there on the hip opening by anchoring your pubic bone down. If your feet cheat, the hip opening ain’t happening.⠀
⠀
Tell me how it goes in the comments! And if you’re a teacher, do your students do this in class too? .

This is one of those seldom remembered poses, called Anantanasana or Vishnu’s Couch  Pose. ⠀
⠀
Vishnu is the triumvirate diety who maintains and oversees the workings of the universe...all from his trusty sofa  made of a serpent called Shesha.⠀
⠀
Shesha goes on to become Patanjali who penned the Yoga Sutras, but that’s a story better told when we’re all together in the same room...⠀

Tonight! It’s Maha Shivaratri. The darkest night of the impending new moon.  Your prayers, mantras, and visions will be multiplied by 1008. #auspiciousAF ⠀
⠀
Dream big. Think lovely thoughts  and up you’ll go....! ⠀
⠀
May we all flourish. May we all heal. May will rebuild. May we create sustainable beauty. ⠀
⠀
In the wee morning hours the crescent moon  will rise, followed shortly thereafter by the sun which, when it gets bright enough, will obscure the moon with its light. ️ ⠀
 Head over to @90monkeys newest post to read my teacher’s words about this auspicious night....⠀

Anyone over 40 relate? My latest class on @YogaGlo is titled: “Restorative Yoga for Perimenopause”(or any of you who are feeling hormonal!).
.⠀
Melt away stress and tension while freeing up your pelvis of any constriction. This relaxing practice uses supported bound angle and urdhva paschimottanasana to bring balance to your hormones and level-out mood swings.⠀

Did you know that when I first got out of college, I taught fitness? Hip hop, aerobics actually. ⠀
⠀
When I graduated from my first yoga teacher training I realized that along with teaching something physical, yoga also had a spiritual-emotional-moral and meaningful side to teach.⠀
⠀
This was daunting, but I knew inside that because of this, teaching yoga would be an infinitely more fulfilling prospect for (what would become) my life's work.⠀
⠀
To take my seat as a yoga teacher in front of a room of eager students and have the opportunity to spark something deep inside them about who they were, was honestly such an honor.⠀
⠀
I often had imposter syndrome, I felt so un-eloquent, and mostly unable to articulate the vastness and mystery that is yoga and yoga practice.⠀
⠀
Other colleagues seemed to be such wordsmiths - they could convey themes so easily. It frustrated me that I couldn't go there.⠀
⠀
But, I was determined. I had to work for it. ⠀
⠀
Eventually I got there.⠀
⠀
Now when I look out into the eyes of my students, I see recognition, I see their hearts softening, I see tears.⠀
⠀
Holding space for love, vulnerability, and tenderness takes a willingness to equate yoga with something more than the physical.⠀
⠀
It takes themes, it means weaving meaningful language in with physical instruction, and it means having a soft heart yourself.⠀ Teaching this way will be the primary focus for my Innovative Teaching Methodology Module in Boulder, CO this May at @90monkeys.⠀
⠀
I will reveal all the secrets I have used over the years to hone the craft of theming and moving your students beyond the physical!⠀
⠀
The training is already over 50% full, so I encourage you to book now to secure your spot, and join us for 4 days of serious study, fun, and togetherness.⠀
⠀
Also - early registration pricing expires April 7th, but don't wait until then, we've been selling out before the deadlines! ⠀
⠀
BOOK NOW: Link in bio! ⠀
⠀
Looking forward to having you with us in Boulder!

Velcro pup! ⠀
⠀
Taro and his mom came home from their mother-son trip to India and I had to give her back. ⠀
⠀
 It was so sweet to have a little animal companion around the house as absurdly cute as Yuki. When I was down with a migraine in bed she loved me up. It was kind of nice to be followed around the house constantly. And I absolutely loved obsessively grooming and caring for her.⠀
⠀
 She gave me a big reason to get off my phone and just be with her playing fetch, combing her matted hair, or holding her rawhide chew while she got after it!⠀
⠀
 Will we get a dog of our own? Still not sure! The travels are real. The responsibility is real. Time will tell.⠀
