People are always asking me why I call myself a Yoga Guide opposed to a yoga instructor or teacher. The reason is simple: I guide you on your yoga journey. Everyone’s journey is different. Everyone’s body is different. So teaching a bunch of poses isn’t what I set out to do when I did my training. My goal is to awaken your internal compass so that you can start to listen and learn about what your body, mind and soul needs and wants. There are countless modifications for almost every yoga pose but you need to be in tune with what you are feeling in order for me to guide you in your practice.
This weekend, I filmed my very first video showing you how to do a modified Sun Salutation using props. A Sun Salutation is a sequence of poses that are done usually in the beginning of class to warm up your body. I love using props and truly believe that no matter your skill level in yoga, you can always find them to be helpful. My body was sore this weekend from visiting an indoor trampoline center with my nieces so it felt great to use props to open up my hips, hamstrings and shoulders.
The video is less than 3 minutes, so you can definitely find the time to do a few rounds of Sun Salutations first thing in the morning or maybe as a nice, relaxing sequence at night. I hope you OM the moment for your body and get some props to play with in your practice.
After you've watched the video, I want to hear from you. Leave your comments/questions/stories below.
