Chairs: Not Just for Sitting

Posted by on Oct 4, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Most of us are familiar with the use of props in our yoga classes. A bolster to sit on allows the spine to lengthen. A block to rest our hand on brings the floor up to us. In our yoga wall classes we use straps, slings, and bars to support the body, enhance the posture, and delve deeper into poses. One prop that is less commonly used but also allows for great exploration of postures is the chair. Chairs not only to allow the student to perform yoga postures while sitting, but also allow…

Svadhyaya: Self-Study

Posted by on Sep 28, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Svadhyaya means self-study, one’s own reading. How often in life do we reflect on our thoughts, actions, and patterns? How often do we do it accurately? We integrate the feeling of danger with instinctual urgency and fierceness.

Yoga for a Healthy Back

Posted by on Sep 5, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

I get low back pain. Being a PT and a yoga teacher does not mean I don’t occasionally overdo it, or that I have somehow miraculously evaded the effects of aging. However, I do feel confident in how I move my body when my back starts its little twinges. I do not hesitate to take immediate action to keep the twinges from becoming full on back pain.

I have a few favorite exercises for my low back. The first one, commonly known as bird dog or alternate arm and leg lift, is my all time…

Tapas: Transformative Fire

Posted by on Aug 26, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

​​

Tapas is the third of the niyamas (observances). It can be translated in many ways, including heat, purification through discipline, passion, and commitment.  Tapas is the fire of transformation that sparks positive change. It is the commitment and discipline we need to break free of habits, or samskaras, even when it is difficult or uncomfortable. We experience tapas when we choose to stay with challenge and not back away.

Swami Kripalu said that tapas is “the friction…
