Yoga Next Door Blog
This blog outlines a set of accessible yoga poses that together provide a relaxing and refreshing full body release. The recommended postures target the hips and four lines of connective tissue (or fascia) in the body: the frontline, backline, lateral lines and spiral line. Opening the hips and major lines of connective tissue daily decreases tension in the body and increases overall calm and wellbeing.
This blog offers tips for setting up a tranquil, safe yoga space at home. I designed my yoga studio which is attached to my house. I hope these tips for creating a home yoga space help you on your way to a consistent, effective, safe yoga practice in the comfort of your hOMe.
This blog explores how to (1) maintain your New Year’s self care resolutions, and (2) deepen your wellness practices if you are ready. Discovering my self care balance – a combination of yoga, meditation, diet, sleep and listening to my body – has changed my life.
Developing a daily yoga practice profoundly influenced my life. I say that not only as a yoga teacher, but also as a mom of three and a naturally anxious person. A daily practice is accessible to anyone with the discipline to make it happen. In this blog I explain: why yoga now, how to make your practice manageable, and the top 5 benefits of a daily practice. Developing a daily yoga practice can make you stronger, stand taller, more focused and feel better physically and emotionally.
I always recommend Restorative Yoga between the start of daylights saving time and the Winter Solstice. Restorative Yoga is a practice of deep relaxation and rest. A Restorative Yoga practice helps calm the nervous system and release tension from the body. We ALL have things from around our house that we can use to have a great Restorative Yoga practice at home. Household items you can use for a home practice and my favorite “real” Restorative Yoga props are outlined in this blog.
