Strong Women


Strong women don’t care what other people are doing to make themselves happy.  Instead, they take time to look within themselves for acceptance and love. 

 

There is something truly remarkable about women who know their worth and don’t settle for mediocre treatment. 

 

Those brave enough to stick around and get to know strong women come to appreciate and admire the intelligence, honesty, and unique perspective they have on the world. 

 

Strong women have strong tribes. They surround themselves with other incredible souls, whose minds and hearts are open to receiving life’s many graces. 

 

Strong women are proactive and often strong-willed. They find success in every area of their lives because they accept nothing less. 

 

They see good in the world because they connect deeply with the good in themselves.

Ego is NOT the Enemy

yoga instructor course near me

The ego is not the enemy! The ego is simply the voice that verbalizes the stories that we’ve created over the years inside our head to keep ourselves safe. When we talk about ego in class as it relates to our physical postures, the story that we’ve created in our heads is that if we are not impressing people with the depth of our postures, then we are not special and we’ll only be loved if we stand out or we’re better than everyone else. This. Is. Not. True! Love that is extended to us when we are operating out of alignment is not authentic and will still leave you feeling less than. When we rewrite our stories so that they are more loving and true to who we really are, that energy attracts the right people and the right love. Don’t ignore the ego! Notice what story it’s supporting and decide whether that’s the story you want to live.

Crescent Moon Pose



Did you know that practicing even the most beginner yoga poses engages your entire body? If done mindfully, something as basic as Crescent Moon Pose, can promote all over stability and balance. 
Crescent Moon Pose or Anjaneyasana (AHN-jah-nay-AHS-uh-nuh) is a dynamic standing yoga pose that stretches and strengthens the lower and upper body, and opens the sides of the body while improving concentration.

Crescent Moon Pose is a great asana for yogis of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. Variations on this pose include lowering the back knee to your mat or keeping your hands on your front thigh instead of reaching overhead. Adding a low lunge benefits the heart as well, which makes it a great pose for runners, hikers and bikers.

 

Benefits of this pose include:

  • Opens the hips
  • Lengthens the sides of the body
  • Stretches the hips and quadriceps
  • Increases balance
  • Warms up the shoulders

It is the perfect pose to start your day, as it gets your blood flowing and face glowing!
