Got a Desk Job? Try these Simple Yoga Poses....

Got a desk job? 
Most of us who have desk jobs spend hours sitting in front  of a computer. It's a part of modern life and all that comes with it. Unfortunately sitting like this has lots of negative impacts when it comes to our posture and overall wellbeing.

While we can't avoid it, we can make some basic adjustments and practice some simple stretches that should help us undo some of the damage that sitting for 8 hours a day can do.

Simple Adjustments
1) Try and sit with your feet flat on the floor, knees in line with your hips and bent at a right angle.

Home Yoga Practice With My Two Girls

Home Yoga Practice with my two girls…
Rachel Gaffey
 
 
People always ask,”How many classes do you teach every week?” And their reaction is always,  “Wow you must be so fit!”
 
However those of you who come to my classes know that the most worked out muscles in my body are my vocal cords!! Most of my classes or workshops are spent talking to and adjusting  my students.
 
A home practice is a very important part of my Yoga Practice, however with 2 beautiful little girls (9 months and 2 ½) it is not always the easiest or the most Zen like environment!

Marilyn Monroe: Yoga Superstar

Marilyn Monroe: Yoga Superstar
By MindBodyGreen
Not only did Marilyn Monroe crank out inspirational wisdom, but she also got her yoga on. Seems like the spirit of Marilyn is in the air as we've seen lots of Marilyn yoga photos floating around the internet the past few days. 
Did you know that Marilyn learned yoga from Indra Devi, who many consider to be the "The First Lady of Yoga"?
At any rate, Marilyn Monroe was a yogi!

Rock Star Yoga

Maroons 5’s Adam Levine has recently come out praising the benefits of Yoga. Levine is one of the growing ambassadors of Yoga crediting it to his feel good factor.
 
“Weights made my neck thick, and I would be like, ‘I’m turning into a monster!’ Yoga takes what you have and moulds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.” 
 
The Maroon 5 lead singer is all about his pre-concert ritual.“Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state. When I get on the mat and do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed,”

Yoga Home Practice

As a Yoga and Pilates teacher, I often get asked the following questions;
How often should I do Yoga or Pilates?
Should I practice at home?
What exercises should I do?
How can I remember what you do in class?
 
Everyone knows the benefits of coming to a Yoga or Pilates class, and students often ask me how often they should practice outside of class. The ideal yoga practice is a daily practice, I recommend students try do something 3-5 days per week.
 
I have recorded a one hour DVD suitable for home Yoga practice.
