Well, that was fun! I enjoyed sharing some favorite hip opener poses with you, and I know my Riegel Ridge students enjoyed our month of actually practicing them in real life on Friday mornings.
I did not, however, love the yoga selfies.
I know that’s how the whole online yoga teacher thing works, but I’m super uncomfortable taking pictures of myself when I’m trying to be “serious and professional.” I also don’t enjoy the “being pretty” selfies. If given the option, I’d always go for the “being a self-deprecating clown” photo, but that doesn’t seem like a very effective way to be a credible yoga teacher. But since the teaching yoga part of our hip series is over, please enjoy this series of outtakes I found as I scrolled through my videos.
Anyway, about those hip openers. I hope you enjoyed the reading, and got inspired to do some simple stretches, even if that means trying out seated pigeon pose while watching college basketball. There are so many moments during your daily routine when you can take five minutes to stretch and strengthen your body. Incorporating yoga into your regular life is a great way to build a long term practice!
Next month I’ll share more chair yoga poses, since I’m continuing to teach Tuesdays at the Hunterdon County library, and will be adding a chair yoga class to Monday morning at Riegel Ridge. Clearly, I’m a fan of the chair. So stay tuned in April and learn how to exercise while watching tv, scrolling facebook, or waiting for your dentist appointment!
I want to share with you the yoga I practice, teach, and live.
