Hi and happy Saturday! I had such a wonderful day.
It began with a tropical green smoothie while I finished up making a new playlist for my morning yoga classes. I went straw instead of spoon and no granola today.
I came straight home after I taught to get a quick run and lunch in before heading back to the studio for a workshop. Lunch was a salad with spinach, avocado, goat cheese, pears, dried cranberries, walnuts, aged balsamic and lemon olive oil.
Speaking of salads…one of my yoga students commented today that she wished there was a central location to find all of my salad combos so I made a Pinterest board!
I went through a bunch of old posts and pinned some of my favorite salad combos and I’ll keep it updated moving forward. I hope to do this for a few other things too like smoothies, easy dinners, etc. Let me know if you have any requests!
I had a really fun afternoon! I taught an arm balance and inversion workshop at Om Yoga.
We spent 90 minutes breaking down headstand, crow, side crow, mountain climber, figure four arm balance, flying splits and handstand. I taught each pose in progressions that allowed everyone to be challenged and work at their level whether they were beginner or advanced.
The 90 minutes flew by but arm balances and inversions are exhausting so it was 90 minutes of hard work. Everyone was shaking and tired at the end of it and agreed they would probably be sore.
The workshop was a success and every single person was able to get into an arm balance or inversion that they had never done before. I am going to offer another Level 1 arm balance and inversion workshop at Charlotte Yoga and Om Yoga in the next few months and I’ll also put together a format for a Level 2 that builds off of what we did today. I can’t wait!
I can’t wait until my arm balance and inversion book is out! I want to take these workshops on the road! 🙂
Because the universe is so full of love and blessings, there are cupcake bakeries next door to both yoga studios where I teach. I usually resist but after teaching all morning and my workshop this afternoon, I needed a sweet treat! I stopped by Cupcrazed to pick up a carrot cake cupcake on my way home. It was delicious!
The rest of my day has been spent hanging out with this fluffy thing. She is out of control (in so many ways!).
Tell me about your Saturday…what did you do, what did you eat?
Yogis…what arm balance and inversions would you like to learn?
