Hi Friends! 

Our next class is this Thursday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. at The Yoga Collective.

As a reminder, my classes are Slow Flow Vinyasa: meant to help you unwind, release the stressors from the week, play a little bit, and loosen any kinks in your neck, shoulders, hamstrings from sitting all day. 

Is a fear that you're not flexible holding you back from taking class? Worry not! Check out the oldie but goodie from the archives in today's Geek Out section below. 

  Namaste, and hope to see you soon!  


All classes are held at  The Yoga Collective (on 29th between 6th and 7th). The schedule is listed in full on my website. If you use Google Calendar and would like to view the entire schedule alongside your own, click here, then click on the small Google Calendar logo in the lower right-hand corner to add this to your calendars. 


"But I'm Not Flexible"

Contrary to popular belief, the aim of yoga is NOT flexibility. Flexibility is a nice by-product and you WILL see your flexibility improve dramatically week-over-week.

The intention is around integrity — engaging all of your muscles without straining, extending your energy lines and remembering to breathe. Yoga is about the integration of mind, body and spirit — developing strength and flexibility with a sense of balance and ease.

As one of the teachers at Katonah says, he sees two types of students: “loose screws and nut jobs.” Loose screws are TOO loose — they flop all over and need to focus on engaging their muscles not just falling-back on their flexibility. Nut jobs are very tight — they can focus on breathing into areas holding tension and releasing and loosening a little bit more every pose.

So in your next class, instead of beating yourself up for your lack of flexibility (::::ahem, looks in mirror::::), consider the following questions instead:
  • Am I feeling the stretch?
  • Am I breathing evenly?
  • Am I extending through each limb where appropriate for the pose?
  • How are my angles and lines?
  • Am I surfing the edge of my strength and flexibility without over-exerting? 
Finally, drop your thoughts altogether and just have some fun!!
