The Value of Support

The Value of Support

Hi Friends, The 21 Day Yoga Challenge is a start of a life changing habit in awareness how we spend our time. For me personally, setting intents each day can be a little scary because all of a sudden I sign up to be accountable for this admirable intent I set out. The great news is, it usually works to some degree or another. The simple act of intending sets up the day for improved awareness of all my actions. I hope you will join us on week 2 of the Yoga Challenge. Our theme is yoga practice, which of…

Teachers: Empower Yourself to Empower Others

  A super sweet message I received I LOVE YOU!! YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I replied, "Thanks so much for your sweet note, and don't forget, YOU have changed your life. Happy for you! xo keep in touch!" Don't ever forget when you have a transformation, physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional, that you are helping yourself. You may be inspired by a teacher or a friend, but you are doing the work for yourself. Make sure to acknowledge your self, so you can stand on your own two feet, in your power.   Dear Teachers,…

Adjustment, Injuries & Making Yoga Better

  Why don't we adjust people at Strala? At Strala we don't adjust or fix people's poses. We support people to feel, and find their own way. When people are feeling and making their own yoga, they stop pushing to get into poses. They stop struggling to line up with other people's ideas and rules about what's right, what's correct. They make their own way, out of themselves. It's inspiring to watch.   You want to be around these people. They're creating great things in the world. Because they're creating great things in themselves.   On a physical level, this…

Making Your Own Yoga Makes Yoga for Everyone

  Yoga can bring people together. It can also divide people. Yoga can make people radiantly healthy and happy. It can also make people less healthy and less capable in their lives. For people to come together - to be healthy, happy, capable creators in their own lives - we need to believe that we can come together and create together as beautifully unique individuals. One size doesn't fit all, and we don't need rules and discipline to take this rebellion out of us! Diversity is a good thing. Making anyone believe that there is a single correct way to…

Headstands, Neck Pain, Prevention & Treatment

  We don't lead headstands at Strala. This is partly because safety is not so basic as maintaining "correct" alignment. Of course the vertebrae move coming in and out of the pose, and when that movement is sudden, the force on a rather vulnerable area of your spine is multiplied substantially, in line with our favorite old high school physics equation: F = ma. Sometimes, sudden movements are tough to avoid. People fall. Sometimes, people are quite eager to be somewhere other than where they are! They jump. Either way, our structure isn't well designed for impact and load-bearing here. You…
Feel Better Now

Feel Better Now

Hi Friends, Intentions are a powerful thing. They exists and direct our lives whether we are consciously making them or moving along without them. When we are clear about our intent day-to-day, weekly, yearly, or even for our whole life, we can anchor in the seat of our intuition and the efforts we put out in our life become clear, direct, and powerful. I hope you join me in a commitment to 30 days of Intents beginning today. Whether you intent to feel connected, practice yoga, meditate daily, or see the good in others, watch what happens in your day…
