SUP, Yo(ga)!

Have you tried the hottest new workout in town? Take your practice off the mat and cool down with some ‪#‎SUP‬ (Stand Up Paddleboard) ‪#‎YOGA‬ this August!

According to Boston.com, "SUP Yoga adds a new, exciting twist to an age-old practice." In this physical and mental style of yoga, "you are constantly engaging your core, along with smaller subsets of muscles throughout your body" in order to stabilize yourself. So you can still practice your Ridiculous Body Awareness™ even off your Plank Yoga Mat

Plank Tip: Cool Down with Legs Up the Wall Pose

We admit it, things can start to get a little too HOT in August, hence why we're offering up this COOLING posture, Legs Up the Wall, (Viparita Karani) as our ‪#‎Yoga‬ pose of the month!

‪#‎PLANKTIP‬: To get into this pose with ease, scoot one of your hipbones as close to the wall as possible, then lie down onto your back and simultaneously extend your legs up the wall. Connect your outer shoulders, connecting side ribs, middle back ribs, side waist and low back fully to your mat for optimal spinal alignment. Then, allow yourself to melt into your Plank Yoga Mat. Ahhh relaxation.

Happy Birthday Tao Porchon-Lynch, a Beautiful Yogini!

“Yoga is a dance within…and then something inside you grows so big, it spills out like champagne, that’s when you dance on the outside.” ~ Tao Porchon-Lynch
