I haven’t been practicing much of late and so it was fun to get on my mat. I realized I have become pretty weak! I really need to get serious again. I love being a PTA, but I also love my yoga 🧘♀️ practice and instructing.
I teach at Vivify Hot Yoga this morning. My friend here and I will be having some fun at @vivifynm.com at 9:30 am today. The more the merrier! I also teach Ambient Stretchy Yin at 12:30 pm today. Namaste!
One goal for my time off is to make my blog so much better. I avoid posting because every time I do, I remember how much I dislike my blog’s format. But in interim, I am driven to post, to send blessings and wishes for peace and joy out to the universe. Love to ALL!
All tissues require stress. You stretch cells in your body to change the factors they produce that will change your body with patience and dedication.
Yin Yoga is one of my favorite ways to do so. I believe it is best to practice yoga in a group setting in addition to a personal practice. Being in a group facilitates friendships, share group energy, gets you away from your own distractions at home. It doesn’t matter whether you are currently flexible or not. My classes are definitely all levels and all ages (early teens to 80 year olds thus far!). The changes I see in the students are far reaching with dedication.
*I think* the most important goal of Yin Yoga is to practice being present and find peace within yourself. Range of motion is huge too, and that will continue to increased with a dedicated practice. I won’t go into the myriad of benefits here.
I teach Yin Yoga at Vivify Hot Yoga in Rio Rancho NM. I would love to be part of your yoga journey. The setting an ambient room with quiet music. I try to keep it light-hearted. There is nothing to fear and much to be gained. Namaste, Theresa
I am a super lucky spoiled lady. My husband buys me the cutest Hawks clothes! I want to wear these to Yin later, but I do try to wear more muted tones when I teach my Yin Classes. So I will just have to wear my new favorite gray Hawks Hoodie (not shown here).
I 💚💙💚 Yin. Would love to practice with you, 4 pm at Vivify Hot Yoga.
So many ideas to mull. Sending thoughts to cyberspace is fun and sometimes pretty cathartic. But I want to go much deeper with my blog. So I have a lot to alter/update/share and meld. But I’ve got writer’s block and very little time to even process all the wonderful stuff manifesting in my life right now.
The fire that destroyed my beloved Ashram this week weighs heavily on my heart. The Ashram meant so much to me when I lived in Kirkland WA. More than a 1000 classes taken, and many as an instructor there….I loved my Ashram Family so much. Becoming a certified instructor there forever changed me. I found my bestie there. 🙂 And that is tip of the iceberg on my feelings this tragic event have unlocked. I hope that in short order I will create a montage of my Ashram days.
I am so glad that Gary and Claudia have their Bellevue studio while they regroup and build a new Eastside space. Destruction of the studio has weighed heavily on my mind.
So I leave it there, although I wish I could sit here for awhile and contemplate my life at Vivify, my new job at ATI Physical Therapy, and the J.Brown yoga podcast revelations. But I must get going. It is time to don my PTA hat.
