"Breathe deeply, until sweet air extinguishes the burn of fear in your lungs and every breath is a beautiful refusal to become anything less than infinite."
Want to build heat in your practice? I got'yah!
The practice of yoga, when given true care and awareness can help you build heat and it ignites a rise in heat to the body, invigorates your internal organs, activates muscles and gets your cardiovascular system excited.
Step 1: True attention to the Breath: keep the breathing consistent, control your prana (upward rising energy) and apana (outward flow). Are you really focused on your breathing or are you more worried about the posture, aesthetic of the pose and the next pose rather than staying in tune with the inhale and exhale? When we don’t connect with our breathing, the joints and muscles will be rigid and then you cannot align physically on the mat to meet your needs.
Step 2: Focus on your alignment: It is imperative for muscular development and advancement into structured poses to practice proper alignment that serves your body's needs. Instead of over-stretching, practicing the same variations without taking note of your spatial positioning and not being self-aware of mechanics, allow the muscles to engage around our skeletal structure and allow your alignment to help you create heat through fitting positioning in poses.
Step 3: What are we eating or drinking pre-class, doing pre-class? Select your foods carefully, drink hot drinks, warm foods and avoid inflammatory foods and alcohol. A hot shower or warm bath prior to the practice is also recommended.
Stay locked-in to your inboxes for hot in-person sessions. We'll expand the schedule in the coming weeks and provide plenty of opportunities to get into the hot-room.
This week we welcome Demetra Kentrotas to the schedule. We also get to bask in the glory of a 60-minute session with Josh Mathew-Meier. Make sure to catch Karen Hyland on Friday for some fun energetic and creative flows. Erin Giordano will make sure your total body gets lit on Wednesday night with her inspiring HIIT class.
