VA sunsets are ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I don't know who needs to hear this... but YOU need some yoga in your life. Some regular practicing, some place held on the schedule to commit to your practice, time to breathe, stretch, and flow... absent from judgment and without hesitation. Life will continue at the current pace, and the regular yoga practice will restore and fortify you for that journey.

Lets get started- I'm teaching yoga tomorrow!
Thursday, 8am and 7pm via link at Dancingyogiamber.com

"Yoga begins now." Sutra I.1
The first sutra of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras introduces us to the present moment, atha (Sanskrit). Hi there - have you met, yourself, right now? In each shift of renewing present moment, like the auto-focus of the camera, be clearly present. Inhale a deep breath down to the souls of your feet touching the ground, expand vertically. Find your tadasana, mountain pose. What is this moment? How are you commanding the power of the present, the only time in which we have any ability to enact change. Be efficient and fully present in the now.

Join me for Yoga at 7 PM tonight! Featuring a new camera, so let me know how we like it or not

"Spiritual bypassing" is the "all lives matter" of the yoga world. Don't buy it

A great reminder for me to be transparent in that process of learning anti-racism and admitting that I am still learning and evolving in subconscious beliefs...

"the toxic positivity of the love and light gospel is really a flaccid neoliberal whitewash of thousands of years of philosophy and practice."

Yesterday I left a Zoom yoga class less than halfway through. Thatโ€™s no big deal for a lot of people, but Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher so I will usually sweat through an even truly terrible session for the sake of camaraderie. It wasnโ€™t the asana (theโ€ฆ

Abhyasa, the Sanskrit term for Practice, teaches us to apply ourselves steadily, consistently, and without attachment to a particular desired outcome. Easier said than done, just relinquish attachment. But what does this teach us along the way? I have discovered recently the freedom in a regular practice. It is a freedom found within the confines of daily life. Once you can relinquish the attachment to outcome, the mind shifts to full present-moment embodiment. Treat yourself to the choice to return, day after day, seeking the nothingness and peace of flowing within the physical body, being present through physical effort and exhalations... inspired and flowing. What has regular practice (of anything!) taught you about yourself?? Comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡

I am teaching yoga weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, see my full schedule of classes and register at my website, Dancingyogiamber.com - Single class or membership available. Members have access to LIVE weekly online Yoga classes AND immediate access to an archive of recent recorded classes in case you ever cannot make the scheduled class time or just feel like practicing with (recorded) me at any time.

Ep 1 - White Women Killed Yoga โ€” Yoga Is Dead

An excellent listen especially as a white woman considering her voice as a yoga teacher in the world. The entire series, Yoga is Dead provides lots of insightful food for thought. I listened because It's important to consider viewpoints other than my own, especially teaching a practice so spiritually interwoven into another root culture (not of my own) and most importantly if you want to be sensitive to the voices of all your students and fellow human beings; https://www.yogaisdeadpodcast.com/episodes/2019/6/5/ep-1-white-women-killed-yoga

Feel free to share some of your thoughts below if you give the episode a listen!

In this episode, we discuss the role that white women play in killing yoga. We cover topics like spiritual bypassing, white fragility, cultural appropriation, power dynamics and the cultural characteristics of white women that wreaks havoc on the yoga industry. We wrap the episode with a toolkit for

Amazing class this evening, my students, thank you so much for practicing with me. I love to see your faces, it's the highlight if my week. AND THEN It really makes my day to hear that you look forward to our yoga practice together. โค๐Ÿ˜ How appropriate since we worked on some heart opening poses this evening. To all my friends.... so amazing to practice with you!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
.
.
Seen here, our peak pose of tonight's class, Ustrasana, Camal pose, demoed using a wall and blocks. The wall is a wonderful source of feedback and to help remind you to lift the torso up before bending backward. Think back-LIFTING more than back-BENDING You can also work up to the full pose by stretching one arm back at a time before trying both together. Another option is using a strap behind the back under the shins to help stretch the chest open. Lots of options for feeling the benefits and the correct alignment in the pose while still strengthening and stretching to be able to enclose the shape.
.
.
As I am ALWAYS preaching, it's about the integrity of your alignment in the pose and your underlying muscle activity much more than MAKING THE SHAPE, contriving to make something fit when it's not ready to fit is not what yoga is about. Also lots of patience and gentility towards yourselves at this time, and always.
