This is a 45 minute practice for those of us who don’t love backbends, or are looking to understand backbends a bit more. We will be using the natural ebb and flow of the breath to create ease and stability in the low belly and low back, allowing our backbends to be fluid, living, evolving shapes as opposed to feeling stagnant or forced. We explore the subtle actions of our breath in virasana, table and plank before moving into a standing series with low lunge, crescent, warrior 1 and warrior 3. We apply our breath and the awareness built in this practice to sphinx, cobra, upward facing dog, and a mild camel. We round our practice out with a hamstring release, a supine twist, and reclined bound angle.

I’m learning to embrace the moments where contentment and presence come easily, and to let them settle deeply into my body and into the “muscle memory” of my practice. For these easy moments of practice, are investments into the practices and days where the contentment, the presence, the settling are harder to find ❤️🙏🏼 Also.

Sometimes really wonderful things and experiences must come to an end. The past 8 summers of leading SUP Yoga in Pacific City, in partnership with @nestucca_adventures, have held some of my fondest memories and moments and included so many of you that I am honored to call friends and students. It has been a great joy in my life to teach so many of you how to paddle, to watch you fall in love with paddle boarding, and to spend this time together on the water.
Currently living in that space that exists right on the cusp of really exciting things. That space that is sometimes hard to be patient and present in. All the prep work, the finishing/completing, the dialing in of details - but the final product is still just out of reach. Kind of like when your teacher makes you do all the prep work for an arm balance - but never lets you do the arm balance 😂😂😈
