Yoga Based Solutions

I believe that the secret to feeling good and looking your best hinges on developing a loving and caring relationship with yourself. That is why, for me, Yoga provides a perfect gateway to achieving health and happiness for the long term. Yoga allows us to learn how to listen, really listen, to what is going on inside.

Another really beautiful benefit of planning a little Yoga practice with your kids to celebrate a holiday is that it can be a nice change of pace from the commercial element that really has taken over most of our holidays. Instead of chocolate and teddy bears, maybe just spend a bit …

Coming up on the finger tips, move the right foot forward to come on the inside of the right hand. Take a moment to make sure the right knee is now stacked over the right ankle and the knee is tracking the middle toes. The back hip will move forward away from the stack of the back knee into a deep lunge. There are two options for the position of the back foot. It may feel more stable to have the back toes curled under or you may want to rest on the top of the foot. Lengthen through the top of the head to elongate the spine.
