2 Links I Love to Inspire your Spring Well Being

Parsvottanasana/Intense Side Stretch Pose Variation
Self Portrait



    When it comes to ladies yoga wear all you need is a plain old t-shirt, a good bra and leggings that are not see through when you bend over. Yet I've noticed dressing up a bit more for my practice with cheerful colors and flattering body wear can feel good. I'll admit I'm very picky when it comes to purchasing body wear. It's got to be affordable and not overly suction hold your breath in fabric and styling. I've been a customer of Fabletics for the past year and I am beyond satisfied with their products, pricing and service. Become a VIP member and you will receive amazing mix and match outfits that you can wear on and off the mat with great savings. Sometimes they offer promos when you purchase an outfit where a percentage of its price is donated to a charitable cause. Please visit fabletics.com to learn more.

 
      I've been a customer of Pacifica Beauty for a long time. I've been a devoted fan of their lilac spray perfume for I can't even remember how many years. Little by little this very affordable brand has taken over my skin care, makeup and candle burning aromatherapy needs. Pacifica Beauty is a 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free Award Winning Natural Beauty company. What I love is how their fragrances and cosmetics enhances and illuminates you rather than over does it. This company has a service where you can recycle and reincarnate your empty product containers. Please visit pacificabeauty.com to learn more and enjoy.


      By the way I was not asked to share this info nor am I receiving anything for doing so. I'm simply grateful for these companies and I'm happy to share the love. What's new for you this spring? Do you have well being plans? A new strategy?

Valentine's Day Couple's Yoga Workshop at Birchwood Center Nyack, NY




    My Mother is from Ecuador and to acquaint me with her culture and family I spent my childhood summers in South America. Here I was introduced to yoga sometime in my pre teen years by my yogini Grandmother. She did breath exercises, yoga postures and meditations at home and often referred to and quoted her spiritual teacher Paramahansa Yogananda. I have many good memories of going to yoga class with her. When I returned home from my summers in South America I didn't seek out yoga until later in my life. I believe my early introduction to yoga and having experienced its calming, grounding and empowering benefits made it a first pick lifestyle choice when lets say life's waves got very rocky. I've come to learn having a yoga practice has a way of making you a better surfer through life's highs, lows and neutral moments.

     This February I'm happy to share that I am leading a Valentine's Day Couple's Workshop Saturday February 17th from 2:30-5pm that's designed for couples and partners ages 10 years old and up at Birchwood Center in Nyack, NY.

     This special class is for all levels and will be perfect for someone who is brand new to yoga. In this heart opening class you will ground, center and warm up alongside your partner, followed by easy partner yoga poses that will relax your neck and shoulders and strengthen and stretch your back body. We will conclude our practice with a nurturing restorative pose and final relaxation. Participants are invited to stay for refreshments and community at 4:30pm.


     $60 per couple 

     Early Bird Special! $50 per couple if purchased by February 14th
