Open your flow of energy and meridians that run up and down your body to feel oh so good!
Did you know you have over 20 muscles that cross the hip?
A collection of inner thigh muscles known as the adductors, the collection of outer thigh muscles known as the abductors, the hip flexors in front, deep lateral rotators in back, and more.
Tight hips affect your ability to simply bend over to pick up something up from the floor.
Hip openers improve your range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain. Hip stretches also keep the joints and muscles in good alignment.
Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and unaddressed emotions. Hip-opening can create space for the birth of new ideas. Loosening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well.
🪑 Chair Yoga is great for: • Restful sleep • Feeling calm • Strengthening your immune system • Becoming more resilient • Greater flexibility, mobility and agility
“I have rheumatoid arthritis, which makes classes offered at the fitness centers hard. Your chair yoga was perfect. I was able to complete all of the poses as you guided us. The ½ hour class just flew by, leaving me feeling energized the rest of the day! “ ~ Louise Vos, Pittsburgh PA

Wishing you a very healthy 2022 and hope you reside in joy, much of everyday.
As the new year begins, I like walking in nature to think about what is most important.
What we think about, we bring about!
Health is our greatest wealth. We create it everyday with the choices we make.
Let’s join together and set gentle clear intentions to refresh our physical and emotional health.
Mine intentions are to:
🕉 Breathe slowly and evenly through my nose with my teeth apart and lips resting together
💧End my showers with cold water, at least 5 days a week
🍪Eat dessert treats that are only sweetened with organic maple syrup, rice syrup, fruit juice and /or dates
🧘♀️Do a minimum, 5 minutes of yoga inversion poses (head below the heart) everyday
These make me feel better. Should be easy… right.
What are your wellness intentions?
I would enjoy knowing what you want in 2022. Comment below to share.
Gotta go for now, out for a walk in the redwood trees
