Moon Salutations! Super Moon Love

20140809-181104-65464417.jpg
Beautiful yogis,

In honor of the upcoming Super Moon TOMORROW, August 10th, when the moon is not only full but super close to the earth, consider doing some moon worship in your practice in the form of moon salutations. There are many varieties, most with the tendency to cool, calm, and settle (as compared to their brothers, sun salutations).  I have videotaped three variations we have been doing in my classes this week: Moon Salutations: Chandra Namaskara.  Or https://yoganag.wordpress.com/practice/moon-salutations-chandra-namaskara/

Think and then feel watery, flowy, smooth, luxurious, silvery.  Use the practice to reflect, to connect to your inner feelings and wisdom, to the sweet current of you.

Who doesn’t love and believe in the moon?

So, bow down, offer a little moon love, a full body prayer to the moon.

Do yoga.  Today.  Everyday.

Peace and moonbeams,

Yoga Nag

Yoga Nag is taking a breather, some time away from the daily internet play, the challenges, the constant connection to my phone and computer. August is time for me to turn it all off. And tune in. To me. Without the constant input and distraction the amazing electronic world provides.  I am sure I will pop back in but won’t be doing the daily nags and connection.

Thank you for your inspiration, your encouragement, your lessons. And for your love. It matters. It makes me a better yogi. A  better teacher. And a better human.

Please keep practicing. Keep shining your light and encouraging others to practice, all of us working together to show up, in this big, beautiful life, both on our mats and off.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and pauses from my mat, and my world, to yours,

✨✨✨❤️💜💚💛💙✨✨✨✨

WILD THING, you make my heart sing.

Maha gratitude to the wild and wonderful Instagram community for a fun and super hard challenge, #independenceARMy. I learned a ton this month.

There are so many ways to learn and practice yoga, including online social communities. I find them helpful and inspiring most days. Some don’t. That’s okay.

Do your yoga. Today. Every day.

Thanks to
@laurasykora17 @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga @glyderapparel. And some sweet love to the fantastic angel ARMy: @extendyoga @yogioneandonly @yoginaomi @cardigansarah

salabasana

#Salabasana/#Locust pose variations. When I try it with my legs together in this variation with arms facing palm down underneath me, my legs lift less than a foot off of the ground, my neck feels cranky, shoulders hunchy, low back tense, elbows screaming mad, and my chin gets raw. Whining? Perhaps. But also signs that I am not there. So, easy does it.  I back off, practice one leg at a time, building strength and opening the places that need opening, followed by some sweet child’s poses. Ahhh…..better.  That is my yoga.

Do yoga. Today. Honoring you. Where you are.  In your practice. In your life.

Peace and pauses,

Laughing boat pose....

Photo from a super fun photo shoot with the amazing Kristen Emma Photography arranged by the beautiful Arlet Koseian at Extend Yoga, with some of my very favorite people, was such silly fun, as you can see from my giant guffaw in the picture.  I have never loved having camera aimed at me, especially with people looking on, but this experience was all new. We had a great time, encouraging, adjusting, and hooting for each other.  This yoga kula is a such a sweet home for me.  Thank you for all of your love and support, good yogi friends. You rock.

Do yoga. Today.  Every day. With friends.

From my mat to yours,

Yoga Nag
