Welcome to this week's installment of Ask a Yoga Question. From now on, I'll be taking questions for the YBC Yoga Forum. Hop on over to ask your question!
Question 1 What are some more intermediate poses I can work on that don't involve upper body strength?
Question 2 I feel like I can't breathe when I do backbends. What can I do?
Question 3 I'm trying to be a better yoga teacher - what can I do to keep my students engaged and how can I explain poses better?
Question 4 Now that my leg muscles aren't as tight and I am moving out of the absolute beginner stage, what should I focus on in my practice?
Question 5 Every time I attempt wheel pose, my arms won't straighten and I can't lift my head off the mat. Why?
Question 6 How can I build my upper body strength so I can hold crow pose for more than a second or two?Read More
Our yoga retreat in Greece last week was amazing. I mean, just so, so good. There are a few things that make a yoga retreat really great. One, a great venue. That's the foundation of a good retreat, in my opinion. Our venue, Verina Astra, was incredible. The views were stunning, and the staff was fantastic to work with. The next thing is having great people. We had an awesome international group, welcoming people from England, Russia, France, Canada, and New York City. What I love about yoga retreats is that while everyone is so different, they usually have the same interests and core values, so by the end of the week you feel like you've made a bunch of new friends. The best!Read More
