The hamstrings, the strong beautiful hamstrings, are the muscles we never seem to have time to stretch. This powerful group of muscles, the biceps femoris, semimembranosus and the semitendinosus, power us forward with every bend of the knee, and assist with just about every movement of our lower body. And because of this constant use and our culture of sitting, they get tight – very tight. Spring and summer activities that we love, including biking, running, walking, hiking, gardening, team sports and summer water activities, are often hamstring intensive.

The simple answer: you! Finding present moment awareness – the spiritual gateway drug to meditation and mindfulness is simple. It’s not easy, to be sure, but it is simple. I’ll not insult you here with some kind of Nike-esque motivational Just Do It speech,...
Ahhh, Summer! It’s the season for relaxed schedules, outdoor adventures, and quality time with friends and family. It’s also a great time to deepen your yoga practice! Our bodies move better in the warmth. Take advantage of the temperatures and the great price on our Summer Yoga Pass: $250 for Unlimited yoga June 1 – August 31 (nonrefundable, one class per day) Let’s do the math: Basically, it’s $83/month.
