Xen Strength Yoga with weights was carefully designed with the five key training essentials fitness experts recommend: aerobic exercise, flexibility, strength training, core exercise and balance training.
Ask any legging-clad woman about her fitness routine, and it usually revolves around spinning, running, or anything cardio-based. Convinced that they burn more calories, and therefore can eat more salted caramel gelato, they ignore the weights. Yes, the immediate calorie burn from cardio might be higher, but if you’re not doing any strength training, you’re […]
This yoga sculpt class uses resistance bands and sliders to tone your upper and lower body in just 12 minutes. Get flexible and strong all at once, from home.
I absolutely love creating new sequences and playlists, and researching dharma topics and new alignment instructions – but when I first started out I had no idea how to do it on my own. It takes a ton of time and dedication to truly offer your students an experience instead of the same old yoga […]
It’s time to share a sneak peek at the new resistance band exercises I’ve been creating the last few months! It’s a take on my two favorite ways to get flexible and strong: yoga and strength training. But this time we’re using resistance bands and sliders to challenge your muscles from different angles, with different degrees […]
The last thing anyone wants to hear right now is “Keep Calm And Carry On,” but when faced with an unprecedented situation like this, self-care needs to be a top priority. But still, there might be some people who don’t like this viewpoint, and that’s ok. I’ve seen many posts saying that wellness people need […]
You slept through your alarm for the 6am, you were driving carpool during the 9:30 am, and now your boss wants you to stay late and you’ll miss the last yoga class of the day. Sound familiar? There is something so energizing about practicing yoga surrounded by others, in a class at your favorite studio, […]
Ditch the New Year’s Resolutions and create an intention instead. Daily, consistent, actions are what take you from where you are to where you want to be, but instead of focusing on the outcome at the end with expectation, we can focus on what to do each day in the present moment to move forward – even just one step.
I’d never use the #thighgap hashtag when talking about a workout, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t work on keepin’ everything below my waist tight. But I, like I’m assuming you, don’t have all day to spend at the gym using all the fancy machines that each specifically focus on one area […]
Oh, the infamous yoga butt. It’s what every magazine boils the practice down to. Even though there’s so much more to it. But when most people are asked what they want out of practicing yoga, that’s actually what they say they’re after. Who am I to judge. If you follow me, you know that meditation is my […]
People talk about how “yoga saved their life” all the time, and although it can sound grossly cliche, I’m happy to be one of them. I started practicing after my mother committed suicide. I was 21. I was also angry, scared, frustrated, lonely and felt tremendous guilt on a daily basis. All feelings I had […]
Ok, so there’s a little debate on what Flying Warrior pose actually is, but the one I’m teaching you is the version I was taught – so I’m sticking with it. : ) The key here? Think updog as you fold forward halfway, keeping your front body open and engaging your core a TON! I take you through it step by […]
