Fall into Yoga! – By Liz Swenton

Finally! My favorite season has arrived. Pumpkin spice everything, mums, cooler air and of course, hot yoga! There really is nothing better than leaving work at 5:30 on a crisp, autumn evening, just in time for a 5:45 power class at Health Yoga Life.

sunrise1Call me crazy but I really look forward to those evenings. There are even some nights where you can see the sunset from the studio windows.

There’s just something about “starting fresh” when the air turns fresh. Yoga is the perfect outlet to achieve these new beginnings.

And here are my three favorite poses/parts of class that I look forward to most in the fall:

  • Child’s Pose – The perfect adjective for me to describe summer is rushed. We’re constantly trying to find time to go on vacation, go to the beach, have a BBQ, etc. that I often feel we lose our breath and our way. Child’s pose is one of my favorite ways to catch a breath and get back on track.
  • Warrior One – I am the biggest HYL offender of having my shoulders creep up to my ears in various poses. As a computer warrior, I spend my day typing away and can feel the stress build up hour by hour. Warrior One is my favorite pose to help me practice bringing my shoulders down my back. This is especially important as the weather gets colder…the shoulders go higher!
  • Pyramid – The flip flops have officially made their way into storage and the boots are about to make their debut. One of my favorite looks is jeans with knee-length boots, which can wreak havoc on your calves and shins. Pyramid is an amazing stretch for your entire leg!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for a class at HYL today and fall into yoga.

There is no better way to learn about the practice you love than through a yoga teacher training.
