Beach Yoga allows us to “let go.”  This is one of the most important reasons to practice yoga. Letting go of any emotional, physical, or mental tension that does not serve you.  Beach Yoga allows our senses to be captivated by the sensations found on the beach…smell of the salty air, sound of the waves crashing onto the beach, the sun on our shoulders and the ocean breeze’s cooling effect, toes in the sand, the list goes on.  Beach Yoga is exactly what your group needs to find zen before your big day.  There is no better place to practice Yoga, except on the beach.  Every Beach Yoga practice is tailored to suit your needs and will accompany any level.Y

Yoga at the beach is the highlight of the summer.  Located near beaches in and near Portsmouth, Rye and Hampton, New Hampshire, this area has become a popular spot for wedding destinations, corporate gatherings, and other outdoor gatherings.  After finishing one practice, your mind and body will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  We all need a mini mind vacation, from time to time.

A few suggestions are to bring a towel (or old mat), a water bottle and your breath.  We will focus on breathing and practice asanas, or postures, with attention to alignment.  Beach yoga is for all levels and modifications can be made for all postures.  Before you begin any yoga practice, please consult with your doctor or family physician.  Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day and bring water with you.  I look forward to seeing you on the beach.  Namaste, Michele

 

The Worst Hangover!!

February 25, 2016

So it’s my bday!! and my dear friend hands me a most delicious looking lemon raspberry cupcake with white chocolate shavings. Looking at it, I am touched by his generosity, thank him and wonder what I was going to do with it. Well getting home 20 minutes later after Yoga, I bring the cupcake inside and decide to take a small bite, trying to remember the last time I had eaten cake or even white flour products (must be at least 3 years). The first bite was delicious, the second bite even better, and this cupcake became dinner. Well I did enjoy each bite, thinking to eat a few pepper strips and some plain yogurt to add some nutrient density to my “dinner.” I drank a big glass of water and fell into bed about 90 minutes later. This “dinner” was a far cry from my usual tempeh and fresh broccoli stir fries made with cumin, coconut oil. ginger and garlic. (more…)

Core exercises can improve your posture, make everyday activities such as bending or twisting much easier, reduce low back pain, and even improve your balance and lessen the risk of falling. Core work should be part of a well-rounded workout routine.
