Feeling Lighter After Yoga

Had two students come up to me after yoga class (one with sciatica and one with back pain) and say they felt lighter and ready to “do stuff” so this photo seems appropriate. The average class actually may be asking you to overdo and over lengthen which can actually cause damage. While it seems like more is better with flexibility, this is not actually so. What I like about the Yapana® practice is that we don’t try to shout cues at people; we feel that the yoga mat is a place to take your muscles to school, sometimes retrain, sometimes rehab, sometimes repose – in other words, yogatherapy :-) …and it is a place to learn to relate to a spectrum of sensations. Then, having mastered the art of listening, to put into practice in your daily life…ahhh…there the benefits.  As always, I am available for private yoga classes to help you navigate your practice or learn ways to practice that will best suit you. And you can learn to relax  anytime with my Yoga Mind Cd (portable peacefullness)yoga = light
