21-Day Back to the Mat Challenge: Day Sixteen. Easy Pose.

Posted by on Jan 13, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Welcome to Day Sixteen. Easy Pose, Sukhasana. Sukhasana is also known as Pleasant Pose. Ah…It is the simple, cross-legged seated posture many yogis take to meditate and most kids take when they sit on the floor to play. Here are some tips for making it comfortable, easy, and pleasant for you: Sit up on some height – such as a cushion or folded blanket Padding under your ankles can also make the posture more comfortable Relax your feet Cross your shins Let the weight of your legs naturally bring your knees down toward the floor Tilt your pelvis slightly forward Engage and lift your core Firm your shoulders on...

21-Day Back to the Mat Challenge: Day Fifteen. Staff Pose.

Welcome to Day Fifteen. Staff Pose, Dandasana. Dandasana is one of the great underrated yoga postures.

Enjoy the sequence we’ve shared to date, after several breaths in Tadasana: Exhale to forward fold Inhale, step your right foot back into Lunge (keep your left knee directly over your left ankle) Lengthen through the back of your right leg and up your spine (keep your abs engaged and your back inner thigh lifting) Broaden through the front of your chest Lengthen through the crown of your head Press your right...

21-Day Back to the Mat Challenge: Day Thirteen. Pyramid Pose.

Posted by on Jan 12, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Welcome to Day Thirteen, Pyramid Pose, Parsvottanasana. Parsvottanasana is a great standing posture that combines forward bending with balancing – and in its fullest form, back bending. After performing yesterday’s practice, ending with Vira II on both sides, come to the front of your mat in Tadasana. Here’s a closer look at Pyramid: Keeping your feet hip’s width apart, inhale and step your right foot back 3-4 feet Turn your back foot out slightly to about 45 degrees Engage your legs: lift up through your knee caps, rotate your back thigh inward, your front thigh outward Keep your hips squared to the front of your mat Lifting up through...
