Posted by on Jan 20, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Welcome to Day Twenty-one. Savasana. We made it. This is the yoga pose we’ve all been waiting for! And perhaps this posture is the purpose of every yoga practice? To get to a posture where we can just collapse into ourselves, simply enjoy the pulsation of the blood in the veins, enjoy the heart beating, and soak in the rejuvenating power of the yoga practice feels like a great goal (if yoga has a goal). Twenty-one days of a daily yoga practice is a terrific accomplishment. Though science tells us now that 21 days is not quite enough to form a new habit (the new magic number is 66...

Welcome to Day Eighteen. Reclining Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose. Supta Utthita Hasta Padangustasana. I know, right? When I first started practicing yoga, I made a point of mastering Utthita Hasta Padangustasana just because I loved the name so much. Reclining Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose is an excellent pose for relieving low-back pain. It helps relieve sciatica and menstrual cramps. It stretches the hamstrings and the calves and strengthens the knees. Use a strap, if your hamstrings are tight. Practice Days 1-17 of our challenge, before lying down into Savasana, move into Supta Utthita Hasta Padangustasana in this way: Lie down on your back Find length through your entire body Inhale, bring your right...
