This Week @ The Studio

Welcome Spring!! A huge KUDOS to all of you that participated in the 108 Sun Salutations on Saturday-what an amazing accomplishment! In case you didn't realize it but you all bounced out of the studio afterwards.

Yoga creates symmetry throughout your body, making you stronger, flexible and balanced. It also draws a balance between the mental urge to push, control and be assertive, with the impulse to yield, submit and be passive.

Yoga, this week is about finding balance. We spend so much of our day imbalanced-think about all you do from the moment you get up. Like most of us, you'll find that your day is so physically demanding and hectic there is no time to calm and balance the mind. Imbalance often results in pain, discomfort, a sense of anxiety, etc.

The body is often in imbalance on the physical plane-I often see this when I work with athletes-most athletic activities create muscular imbalance (talk to runners!!). Maybe you notice that one side of your body can hold a twist in yoga and the other can't.

This is a great week to have fun on your mat exploring ways find balance through asanas and pranyama!

Just a reminder there is a Monday 5 pm class, which will stay on the new schedule.

Summer is coming and we want you to have the best summer of your life! Burn calories and tone the glutes (yes, that means lower body sets) with this week's set.

Strength and cardio conditioning in both classes-have fun!

Have a safe and healthy week!
