Open your heart this Valentine’s Day

Whether you love it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is upon us. While the day may have long-ago been co-opted by greeting card companies, chocolatiers, and florists (Big Valentine…?), it can still be a great reminder to check in with our own hearts and practice self-love.

What the TFL?!

Oh, the beloved TFL.

No, there are no bad words in this acronym. It means Tensor Fasciae Latae, and this beauty is where your Iliotibial Band (IT) band grows from. The Iliotibial Band is considered DEEP fascia, meaning that it ties into the deeper layer of fascia all over your body all. Interestingly enough, your earlobe is also deep fascia. Feel your ear lobe, now feel the outside of your thigh, where your IT band is. Press somewhat firmly on your IT band and you will surely feel sensation! Press firmly on your ear, and you may think you could even take a little more pressure. This has to do with the simple mechanics of loading.Read More

How to harness the power of the New Year

For many of us, the New Year is a great time to take a step back and reassess some of our habits, goals, and priorities on our lives. While it’s just a date on the calendar, having a set time to be mindful about our choices and to step outside of ourselves a bit can be a really powerful exercise.

While the old idea of making a New Years “resolution” is definitely still out there, more and more people are eschewing making a resolution in favor of setting an intention. And for good reason, too. Studies show only about 8% of resolutions are kept each year. Making a proclamation about something you will or will not do can be a tough row to hoe, ever for those with strong follow through. Setting an intention, however, allows for more gentleness with yourself and a broader application of what your goals really are. While there are many ways to go about intention setting, one of the most powerful can be choosing a word for your year.Read More

Inversion workshop

Saturday January 12, 1:00-3:30pm

Are you interested in shifting your perspective in 2019?

Do you cringe when your yoga teacher says “inversion?” Does fear keep you from enjoying life?
Is your glandular and hormonal system in need of a tune-up? Join us for a workshop that focuses on the “up” side of down!

Inversions are highly beneficial for the lymphatic system as well as a way to rejuvenate the circulatory system and re-route stagnant blood back through the heart and into the brain!

In this workshop we will explore:
Headstand variations, Sirsasana, Forearm Balance, Pinchamayurasana, Shoulder Stand, and Sarvangasana.

**Contraindications and Cautions—Back/neck injury, High/Low Blood Pressure, Pregnancy.
Please ask if you have any questions.

Irena Lambrou offers dynamic, always-changing sequences that create a fun environment that challenges students and brings them deeper into their bodies and out of chitta vrtti, the monkey mind.
