Had a awesome Vinyasa class this morning at Onyx Mind Body in Warren! A student came up to me after class to tell me how much she enjoyed it. Yey, I love hearing feedback! She hasn’t been doing Yoga for a while, so she felt challenged in some of the poses. She took breaks when needed. Remember when doing your own Yoga practice (whether at home or in a studio) to HONOR YOUR BODY. Do what is best for YOU! Take a break if needed, maybe by doing child’s pose or Tadasana (mountain pose) or Savasana (corpse pose), and/or simply don’t hold the poses as long.

That same student also informed me her knee has been bothering her and she couldn’t hold the balances long. No problem! She did the perfect thing. You can still balance, but not as long. Of course if it hurts too much, maybe best not to balance at all. Balancing can be tough on knees and ankles because all your weight is on one leg.

Always remember your Yoga practice is for YOU! We are all at different levels and have different bone structures, so your pose may look different from your neighbors and you may be able to do different things than your neighbor can or can’t.


Shanti Om


Tomorrow, Friday, 10am at Onyx Mind Body in Warren, NJ. All levels welcome! Join me for a challenging and relaxing (No, it is not an oxymoron) Yoga class.

Today had an awesome lunchtime yoga class at Onyx Body Mind in Warren, NJ. One student said she felt so much happier and just plain better after a depression the past few days from all the rain we’ve been having. Makes me feel so good as a teacher to hear that after a class!

Over the weekend I went to the Yoga Journal Conference in NYC. Was my first conference and words can not express how much I enjoyed it. Stay tuned to hear more details on my experience at the conference and about the many things I learned.
