Egyptian Scorpion

During these weeks of practicing with scorpion pose, we will explore variations that do not require one to do a forearm stand. Sometimes we will use props and sometimes we will play with a posture we call Earth Scorpion and another called Egyptian Scorpion.serqet2 Continue reading

Scorpion

During these last months of the year, the morning class will explore and play with scorpion pose. It takes strength and flexibility so we will build up to it over time. Even then, since scorpion is an advanced arm balance, we will enjoy the journey of developing the strength, even if no one in the class accomplishes the arm balance. There are many modifications to be tried and we hope to have fun with whatever scorpion pose is accomplished. scorpionpose Continue reading

Lymphatic system

Our practice on Tues July 11, was one that focused on lymphatic drainage. We learned a self-massage technique in the neck area and then did plenty of long-held inverted postures. Since we don’t have a video of Shelly teaching this method, here is a similar video so we can practice this massage as often as we like.

Come as you are

A few weeks ago I watched the broadcast of the 2nd annual Accessible Yoga Conference.
One of the presenters was Dianne Bondy
She’s very passionate about bringing yoga to communities that don’t fit the common yoga population.

This quote comes from her. sunsetquote

Quote from Class

A quote by Sally Kempton, shared in class in February.

By improving your ability to fully receive, you will come to notice how many gifts are being offered to you at every moment. The wind in the trees, a stranger’s smile, the wagging tail of a dog will feel like personal offerings of affection, gifts of beauty and wisdom. Whatever you give back becomes part of that same dance–the dance of giving and receiving, in which we’re all each other’s partners.

2017 at Rexburg Yoga

We will take the theme for our classes this year from this quote by Joel Kramer:

Yoga is a living process. The heart of Yoga does not lie in visible
attainments; it lies in learning about how universal patterns express themselves through individuals.

Dotti, a horse, and a video camera

One of our long-time friends and yoga students participated in a television commercial for Blue Cross Blue Shield. The great shots don’t give the true picture of the many hours riding back and forth by the river on a horse that she was unfamiliar with until that morning. She makes it looks effortless and easy. Thanks for sharing with us Dotti.

We might be able to get the whole video, but until then here are some screen shots of Dotti with the horse.

Myth-busting: Yoga and weight loss

We have all seen advertisements or online photos of very thin, and very flexible women in beautiful and challenging yoga postures. This is a constant message to the subconscious mind that yoga will make one look like this model or if weight loss is on the mind, then the message would be that yoga can help weight loss.
