Breathing for Resilience

Posted by on Oct 25, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

I have a 45 minute commute every morning and evening, driving to Evolution from my home in Underhill, so I listen to a lot of podcasts. I recently listened to an interview with Dr. Stephen Porges, developer of polyvagal theory, which sparked my curiosity. Dr. Porges’s research deals with the autonomic nervous system, which has two branches- sympathetic and parasympathetic. You may have learned them as “fight or flight” (sympathetic) and “rest and digest” (parasympathetic) in…

Ishvara Pranidhana – Surrender to the Divine

Posted by on Oct 25, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

Chairs: Not Just for Sitting

Posted by on Oct 4, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

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…
