Dr. Ariele Foster – Yoga and Physical Therapy shared a memory.

Monday, 19 March 2018 2:34 pm

I’m a little less excited about what I meant by “vinyasa” and a little less excited about this pose, eka pada raja kapotasana mermaid variation, than I was 4 years ago, but everything else still true!

Dr. Ariele Foster – Yoga and Physical Therapy

I am a creative, multi-passionate yoga teacher – turned Doctor of Physical Therapy. I geek out on alignment and purity of presence in seamless transitions in vinyasa. I help yoga students achieve breakthroughs in their asana practice as well as deepen the qualities of patience, self-study, and raw honesty that are required in that process. I practice physical therapy that is inclusive of the whole person – their mind, body and spirit, their past or current traumas, hopes and aspirations, their dharma in this lifetime. I like fun. And music. I believe that spring is on her way.

This is such an important and refreshingly FRANK conversation about body size and yoga with Body Positive Yoga. If you teach yoga or if you’ve ever felt like a teacher was not teaching to you based on your body’s size or other needs, omg I hope you will listen. Amber Karnes, Francesca Cervero thank u !

if your neck hurts, skip headstand.

Skipping Headstand to Go Straight to Handstand?

Handstand before Headstand…is that ok? YogaAnatomyAcademy has been spotted in the March 2018 edition of Women’s Health Magazine! This was a fun, first experience: picking up a magazine in the airport and finding your own face inside. In the Ask Anything section, we (I) answer this: “I have nec…

Yoga Anatomy Academy

How does Functional Movement relate to Yoga? Well, for one, we need to be able to get on & off the floor (duh!) and for two, we need to stop worrying so much about precise, detailed alignment in fancy poses, and consider so much more our natural fluidity in day to day life. Here’s a compilation for you on why sitting is NOT the new smoking, squatting is king, and crawling is core.

Can you squat, half squat, stand from ground sitting without using your hands? Comfortably assume various ground positions for an hour? It’s wild, but many YOGIS struggle with these basic moves. I’m here to save the day: Fluidity and Function comes to Project Yoga Richmond on Saturday.(3-6pm), Posterior Chain Awakening comes to Grace. in Silver Spring, MD April 8. And if you are just tight: join me in Way of the Happy Fascia near U St. DC on March 18th (sign up for that is via eventbrite). All links should be found at
