. Shoelace Pose . There’s nothing quite like it! It opens my in a different way than any other pose. . If it doesn’t feel good to you this way, or you’re just looking for variety, here are some ideas on ways to change it up: . 👟 Try it with your bottom leg straight. 👟 Try it laying on your back. 👟 Try it with your shins on the wall (my personal favorite!) . What’s your favorite way to practice this pose? . #yin#yinyoga#shoelacepose#glo#yogaglo
One of THE best things about being a #solopreneur#yogateacher#yogastudioowner is that I get to create my own schedule. . I can go have an outdoor lunch on a beautiful day. I can curate my weekly class schedule, so I can transport my kids to school and attend their events. . I can plan my weekend trainings around vacations and special events. . I can travel to all the places to learn all the things. . I get to decide what opportunities I say “yes” and “no” to. . I can decide who I want to work with. And who is not a good fit. . I don’t have to drive all over town, teaching 20+ classes a week just to make a decent living. . I have created a community of amazing students that are supportive, kind, and encouraging to me, but even more importantly, EACH OTHER!! . I get to do what I love, and only what I love the vast majority of the time. . But, it’s taken me 14 years in this business to figure some of this stuff out. . If you’d like to hear me share what I’ve learned (often the the hard way) over the years, then my Online Yoga Teacher and/or Yoga Studio Owner Coaching is for you. . I’ve made it incredibly affordable. Registration opened today, and the first session starts in July. The link to information is in my bio 👆🏽 .
Without overthinking it, if you had to pick ONE book on yoga and/or meditation, to take with you to a deserted island, what would it be?! 🏝📖 . If I had to pick without looking at my shelf, the first one that comes to mind is “Bringing Yoga to Life” by Donna Farhi. . Share yours below, and help others find their go-to resource! . #yogabook
I excited to announce I will be offering Online Coaching! . This means we can learn and grow together, regardless of our geographical location! . Two content areas this summer; Yoga Teachers and/or Yoga Studio Owners The inaugural sessions of each will start in July! These offerings will occur completely online, via private FB group and FB live. No need to be there live, as all recordings will be available afterwards! The groups will be interactive, and include polls for us to dial in our content to fit the needs of the participants. More info coming soon! #coaching#onlinecoaching
It’s Earth Day! 💙🌍💙 . How are you making a difference? . Here are a few things I do regularly: . 🌍 use reusable water bottles 🌍 use reusable bags at grocery store 🌍 use a large tote as my purse, so I can opt out of bags for errands and small purchases 🌍 recycle at home 🌍 I have a bin in each bathroom to easily recycle things such as packaging and TP rolls 🌍 use as few paper products as possible and/or use for double use. Example, blow your nose and use same tissue when you use the restroom 🌍 use heat and AC as sparingly as possible . Share your favorite ways to be earth friendly in the comments below! 👇🏼 .
A great day picking plants and flowers for our yard. Welcome Spring!! We’ve been waiting for you! 💕💐🌸💫
Arguably my most favorite Yin pose! I do it every single day! Anyone else love this pose? . Here’s why I love it: ☯️ Activates the Kidney & Bladder Meridians. ☯️ Feels yummy on my lower back. ☯️ I can really focus on my breathing, since the floor gives subtle feedback. . #glo#yogaglo#yin#yinyoga#sphinxpose@yogaglo@evolvetoharmony
I’ve always loved Chair Yoga and Wall Yoga!!! I appreciate the different ways it helps us experience the poses, allowing us to focus on various principles of alignment and/or sensation in poses we may practice regularly. Chair Yoga is also a great skill to know, because it allows you to teach a variety of things like: ❇️ alignment ❇️ pose modifications ❇️ office yoga ❇️ Seniors ❇️ Prenatal and Postnatal ❇️ Gentle Yoga ❇️ and more!! If this is of interest to you, we have 5 remaining spots open! This could even be an informative workshop for students too, as well will learn lots of practical applications to your practice. . @evolvetoharmony . #yogaomaha#omaha#omahayoga#omahayogateachertraining
. Are you newer to Yoga? . Or maybe you’ve taken a break from your practice and you want to ease your way back in? . I’ve put together a playlist of my classes on @yogaglo that were designed especially for your situation! . And, if you’re new to #glo you can even get 2 weeks FREE!! . These are classes geared toward the practitioner looking for a Flow (Vinyasa) based practice. . I recommend starting with my class called “First Timers Flow”. Do that one a few times until it starts to feel comfortable. . Then, you can try “Focused Flow for Upper Body” and “Focused Flow for Lower Body”. It’s great to do those two on alternating days. . Another option is to do a rotation of all three classes for 2-3 weeks. Then, see how you feel. You can always continue with these classes, or once you’re feeling more at ease, you can branch out. . Give these classes a try, and feel free to DM me with any questions! . Link to first class in my bio ☝🏽 . #yogaglo#yogaforbeginners#alllevelsyoga
