Happy Monday! This past weekend marked the Summer Solstice and now, it’s officially summer!
I had a jam-packed weekend. What better way to share it with you then with some photos?
Bethany is a classically trained ballet dancer-turned yogi and bears an uncanny resemblance to Brittany Spears circa 2003. Maybe it was just the braided hair and headpiece that did it but she led us through a great fiery class.
I have to admit – there is something that I love about practicing yoga in the middle of Times Square. It’s definitely challenging to try to tune out all the noise and distraction but at the same time, those noises become the soundtrack of your practice. And it’s hard to find your drishti amidst all the commotion around you!
After class, I headed off to a yoga workshop with Tiffany Cruikshank. You may recall that I took Tiffany’s workshop at the Yoga Journal Live! Conference in New York back in April. I love the way she teaches and I was excited to take another class with her. This class focused on the core and left me really appreciating all the layers of muscles that make up our core and how to better turn on (and off) those muscles.
We were supposed to share a selfie for our first photo. I wanted to post a picture of my family but of course, the only decent picture of the four of us is from back in the Fall! Need to work on that.
My first class focused largely on finding your midline as well as being mindful of your core – clearly influenced by Saturday’s workshops. My second class focused more on twisting postures which are great for detoxing by moving around the toxins that may have accumulated in your body. We used both physical postures which creates compression on the abdomen as well as breath practice to help facilitate this.
I use a method called the Bullet Journal, adapted to my needs. It really does help me keep track of everything in one place. Would you be interested in hearing more? Maybe I’ll write a post about it?
Nighttime is also the time that I tend to get my work done except I AM trying to change that and go to be and wake up earlier. Yeah, not so much last night.
How was your weekend? Any bets on how Jasper’s going to lose his next tooth?
