Yoga is not about touching your toes…it’s about what you learn on the way down.
What is Mindful yoga?!
We can get so caught up in the swirl of life...sometimes it's nice to settle in, and quiet a bit. My classes are focused on the mindful and meditative aspects of a yoga practice...the slow flow.
What does this even mean??
We take our time in poses
We practice being kind to ourselves. (none of this “I’m so stiff”, or “I hate the way I look in yoga pants” kinds of inner dialogue)
We turn our awareness inward…to body sensations, to areas of tension, to trains of thought, and to the breath
I teach with the intention of making yoga accessible to everyone. You don't have to look like the cover of a yoga magazine to begin a practice...you don't even need to be able to touch your toes!
We hold the poses a little longer, slowly flow from one pose to the next, practice yogic breathing techniques, meditate (yep…this is really important!)...and a hearty savasana!
