Agni Stambasana is sometimes known as Double Pigeon pose but actually translates to mean Fire Log pose.  When you are in this pose your two shins look like stacked fire wood.  It is exceptionally cold in Los Angeles right now so this seems like a fitting posture for this week.  A few things to acknowledge about this pose are that it is a VERY deep hip opener, proper alignment is non-negotiable in order to keep the knees safe, and it may take years to feel progress.  Doesn't that inspire you to try this class ;)?   But actually, I think this is a pose where you test your  "real" practice.  Bringing grace, patience, surrender and love to what may be a very challenging posture is the "real" yoga not how close your shins come to touching one another.

Happy Thanksgiving week!  Enjoy this practice of connecting to the back of the body as we discover ways to  bow with gratitude in every pose.  A bowing position is a universal symbol reverence.  Remember something for which you are deeply grateful and offer this...
11.17.19
You have everything you need.  Do something to clear away the static that keeps you from connecting to your own strength.  This practice is a good start.  We work the legs A LOT.   Allow the repetition, to get you out of your head and into your body. Connect to your own strength and remember you have everything you need. 
11.10.19
This is the fifth and final class in our alignment principles series.  In this class, we focus on Organic Energy which explains how we stretch and lengthen the muscles in the most effective way.
11.3.19
Outer spiral is the 4th alignment principle of Anusara yoga. Strength and grounding is what this practice is all about.   We build to Pincha Mayurasana/Forearm balance.  This week’s practice is the counterpart to the work from last week.  It is definitely worth doing...
10.27.19
This is one of the most important alignment principles I teach.  In this practice, we workshop aligning the legs to create space in the low back.  We all need to understand this alignment principle to counter the sitting and misaligned standing that is pervasive...
10.20.19
Muscular Energy is the second of the 5 universal principles of alignment from which I often teach.  This week’s practice focuses on the 3 main ways  we engage our muscles.   From the spiritual perspective, our practice this week is about connecting to our...
10.13.19
Open To Grace is the first of 5 alignment principles from which I often teach.   This principle teaches us the importance of intention (mind, heart) and foundation (body).  Both of which are fundamental for any practice.  So, yes, this is a more beginner...
10.6.19
Tapping into the fire in your belly is what this practice is all about.   Iccha is a Sanskrit word that means will or desire.  In yoga, your desire is a force to be respected because its the power behind your actions.   Have fun connecting with your own power in this practice.
