It rained all day today... and then we started practicing at Makara Studio. Once the 90-minute sweat-fest was over, the rain stopped and a studio full of yogis went on their way to enjoy the rest of their weekend.
Again, it was a true pleasure leading the donation vinyasa class today. Big shout out to all the hardcore yogis who weathered the storm to get their asana action.
Tomorrow, I'll be at Earth Yoga NYC for a 75-minute hot vinyasa flow. Oh, that's at 10 am. So before you head out for brunch and a lil' football, get the day started right with me at one of the finest hot studios in NYC.
Enjoy your weekend,
Adho much vrksasana (handstand) on a busy New York City sidewalk…
Bakasana (crow) on an edge of a cliff…
Forget that! How about savasana (corpse pose) anywhere and everywhere?
Now that's the prime photo-op for every aspiring yogi and asana junkie! Arguably the most vital of poses, savasana, is the final gateway to bliss and complete absorption. After a rigorous practice, many times the benefits aren't truly realized because the practitioner deprives themselves of a enriching pause. Even during a hectic day, finding time to just lay down and feel your inhalations and exhalations in this pose can be valuable.
Besides all the impactful benefits; decreasing of the heart-rate, relaxation of the skeletal and visceral muscles, lowering of tension and anxiety along with increasing energy levels and stimulating the ability to concentrate… why wouldn't anyone want to deepen their awareness with a corpse pose anytime or anywhere?
At work. At home. Getting to your yoga class early and easing into it and ending your asana practice with a prolonged savasana. Alright… lets do it.
Anytime… anywhere. Get your savasana on!
If I'm doing it, I'll be talking about it. Yoga chatter & more.
