Yoga Outdoors – Free – This Weekend

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s SUMMER, time for Yoga Outdoors! This weekend (June 2014) is the beginning of summer! A great way for yogis to celebrate is to go to a park or wooded area and do some yoga.

If you haven’t done this before, we have some helpful tips for you. Sure, you could take a mat and various props with you or keep it simple and just adapt to what’s around you.

Our recent Yoga Now episode is all about doing yoga outdoors. To help you celebrate summer and get the most out of your outdoor yoga practice, we’re making our premium episode; Yoga Outdoors available to free members – just for the weekend (Note: although that offer is gone, we have others! So, Sign-up Below!) After that, it goes back to a paid member episode. So take advantage of the Free episode and then head out to the park for Yoga Outdoors! Sign-up Below!

Our guests, Journey Blain and Danny Morris guided by host Jane Lanza show you the fun and opportunities available in the park. One simple example is the effect that slightly uneven ground can have on poses previously thought to be routine for you.

In the show, Jane and our guests guide you through specific adaptations to some common poses that you can use in a park or forest environment. Beside that, you’ll see just how much pure fun you can have with yoga outdoors. It really is a different vibe compared to a studio.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn in the episode

  • Simple standing stretch
  • Downward dog adapted to a tree
  • Side stretch with a tree
  • Several other tree adapted poses
  • Practice mindfulness in nature
  • Mindfulness “on the move”

Yoga Outdoors! – on Yoga NOW

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Yoga Outdoors! Take your yoga way off the mat and combine your practice with the natural world.

You’ve probably heard of the idea of taking your “way of being” that you learned on the yoga mat out into the world. For many people this means taking yoga into city or suburban neighborhoods, the so called “built world”. A step beyond that is to take your practice into the natural world, a forest or a park will do.

Combining and adapting your yoga practice with the natural environment can be great fun and a change of pace from being inside of a building.

Our guests, Journey Blain and Danny Morris guided by host Jane Lanza show you the fun and opportunities available in the park. One simple example is the effect that slightly uneven ground can have on poses previously thought to be routine for you.

In the show, Jane and our guests guide you through specific adaptations to some common poses that you can use in a park or forest environment. Beside that, you’ll see just how much pure fun you can have with yoga outdoors. It really is a different vibe compared to a studio.

LIVE Streaming Yoga Conference

The weekend Live Stream of the Burlington Yoga Conference was very exciting! Everyone attending got to experience some awesome classes. Yoga NOW tv has been asked about making some of the classes available for on-demand viewing. We are looking into that and hope to have more news for you soon!

The keynote address was presented by Lama Migmar, the Buddhist chaplain from Harvard University. He talked on the subject, “What is Yoga?”. The things he had to say, you’ve likely not heard before. That’s what we like to offer you here on Yoga NOW, new perspectives to broaden your Yoga practice and your life off the mat.

The March episode of Yoga NOW normally is out a few days earlier. I aplogize for the delay; we were moving at top speed to get everything ready for last weekend’s conference. The March episode will be out in just a few days and members will get the reminder email.

Namaste to you!
