7 minute rebalancing yoga sequence

Try this simple set of poses after a long day at work. It will rebalance your energy and give you the boost you need to have a great evening with friends or family.

I recommend using a block, book, or blanket, but you can do this without any props if you don’t have them!

As always, take care of your body, support yourself, and enjoy!

Lessons from Yin: why we could all use a little more

 

I just finished up my training in yin yoga with Gretchen Shutte at Inner Power Yoga. It was an amazing experience – I learned so much not only about yin but about yoga and teaching in general, and I’d highly recommend the training.

 

In this latest episode of Happy Healthy Human Radio, you’ll hear why I finally took up a yin yoga practice and how it can benefit us all.

15 minute yoga to relax your shoulders

We hold so much tension in our shoulders – from carrying heavy bags to hunching over our desks and phones. All of this tension cuts off the energy to our shoulders and heart. Try this 15 minute yoga sequence to help you relax your shoulders.

 

Great news – you can do this sequence even if you’ve never done yoga before, and you don’t even need a yoga mat! You can do this sequence anytime, anywhere, but I think it’s especially great for a mid-day stretch at the office.

Enjoy this latest episode of Happy Healthy Human Radio!

That it was their way to check in with their body and mind. It gave them time to feel their heart beat, their blood pump, and to set an intention for their day.

 

In 2008, I was in the throws of college courses like organic chemistry and fluid dynamics…I needed an outlet, and daily yoga was a powerful place to start.
