Pose of the Day: Crow

Pose of the Day: Crow

Crow pose is a fun way to build balance, strength, body awareness and a sense of adventure! We crow a few times as transitions in Strala STRONG classes and it's a nice way to remind ourselves to say easy, even when exerting a little bit of effort. You can do a crow easy, be relaxed and gentle in it, or clench and tighten to do the move, but that's no fun. Here's how to do crow pose the easy way. Step 1. Set up your foundation. Palms flat, fingers spread, just like down dog. Keep your fingers facing forward and…

Doing Hard Things the Easy Way

Yoga Anywhere with SHAPE

Super excited to share with you all a fun adventure for the summer for all of us!  We teamed up with SHAPE to bring you Yoga Anywhere (around NYC).  I shot a bunch of super fun yoga videos all over town today.  Check out one of our first shots of the day, tree in a tree pose.  We got progressively more exciting and even dangerous as the day progressed.  Risking collisions by shooting on cross walks, Times Square, subway stations, with street performers and more!  And it's just day 1.  We have three days of this fun to collect as…
