Stretching

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

GO HAWKS!

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.

Can’t distill it.

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.

Have a great day Cyberspace

Yoga Fix!

I managed to run a few errands this morning before work, and that is gratifying, but I was jonesing for some yoga… so parking lot yoga was my option. It was only 10 am, but holy hell it was already super hot. I had about 3 min before my mat started getting hot.

I love my job. I do however miss having the time to get on my mat more.

Speaking of which, break is over!

Duo Yoga. So much fun!

I have been so f-ing busy that I haven’t blogged in a long time.

Things are in general going quite well, but a new job, however cool it may be, is still time consuming and ego-breaking.  I hate having to ask a bazillion questions. The documentation software that ATI uses is actually quite robust, but it is really hard for this somewhat old dog to learn new tricks.  But I will succeed!

Speaking of learning anew, Harlan and I can now resume our delving into duo yoga. We had to go on hiatus for a few months since he broke a rib.  WE WERE NOT PRACTICING DUO WHEN HE FRACTURED HIS RIB, JUST AN UNFORTUNATE FALL 🙁  

So watch out world!  This stuff is way too fun.  Trust is required 🙂

So Happy Monday All. Love and Light into Cyberspace .

🙂
