✨MEDITATION✨ Rasa Yoga IG Challenge Day 5
~
The sweetest practice is to quiet down, remembering the depth of your goodness; drawing up and recharging your capacity for forgiveness, kindness, and compassion.
~
You don’t have to empty your mind. You just have to be curious about it. And kind to it.

Fluidity & Function. A new workshop coming soon to Project Yoga Richmond

Function has become a trendy word recently in the yoga and fitness space. But what means different things person to person. And “function” alone isn’t a holistic way to preserve complete musculoskeletal well-being (or to have fun).
.

We will unpack the meaning of the word “function”, and dedicate time to “functional” movements that compliment a yoga practice, and will strengthen your yoga or movement teaching. We will move in ways that preserve what we really want — fluidity — on the mat, and off the mat.
.
This workshop is geared toward anyone wishing for better mobility for life, for students of yoga and for yoga teachers. Teachers will learn ways to incorporate functional movements into yoga classes.
.
Your instructor, Dr. Ariele Foster, is a physical therapist, founder of YogaAnatomyAcademy.com, and long time interdisciplinary yoga teacher. Learn more at sacredsourceyoga.com or yogaanatomyacademy.com

Day 4 of the #RasaYoga #IGChallenge: Pranayama 🦋.
.
In Kripalu, where I lived and completed my 200 hour YTT, all components of the full practice of Kripalu Yoga stemmed from Swami Kripalu’s initial #pranayam practice of #anulomvilom. He practiced this in the midst of a deep despair. And I practice #nadishodona with anulom vilom in this lineage of upliftment. (I am showing this in the image along with a few of my plants that support my pranayama practice).
.
In @RasaYogatribe (the school of yoga with which I study most these days), we dance with the Spirit of the Breath & honor the vital energies that nourish and sustain us.
.
Spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus, which means “breath”.
.
Inspire comes from the Latin word inspirare, which means “breathe, blow into and breathe upon”.
.
In Sanskrit, pranayama is often translated as “breath regulation” + can be translated in the following way:
.
Prana = “life force energy”.
Ayama = “expansion, extension”.
.
Breathe deeply with the hint of a smile & open your Heart Wings to fly!

Day 3: ASANA 🧘‍♂️.
.
Today we the #rasayogatribe post a jewel of asana.
.
Asana is the sacred movement of yoga that celebrates the Body Temple as the home of the Divine.
.
Asana means “posture” + “seat”. It is the seat or posture the yogi takes in body, mind, & heart.
.
Asana molds & shapes the clay matrix of the body + brings awareness to the network of fascia, muscles, bones, glands, organs, fluids, electrical impulses & the bio-energetic miracle of our life!
.
In asana, we cultivate:
.
✨Steadiness + Ease (Stira, Sukha)
✨Effort + Surrender
✨Dynamism + Stillness
.
For this #RasaYoga #IGchallenge, post your asana jewel.
.
My jewel is compass pose, sometimes called sundial pose, Surya Yantrasana. It is a sweet pose that helps reveal to me whether I am caring for my hips and core in a way that invites more ease.
.
This pose is a close kin of Pavritta Janu Sirsasana in upright form.

hi guys, something clearly went awry with the technology in filming this class. It was a good one all about opening the chest, then strengthening in your new range. I’ll have to teach it again sometime soon so you can see it! Meanwhile, come to this Gentle class Wednesdays or any of my yoga classes at YogaWorks 14th St NW. This code gets you a free week :)!

🔺🔻 MUDRA🔻🔺
It’s Day 2 of the #RasaYoga Challenge and it’s all about M U D R A.
.
Mudras are seals or gestures that you can create with your hands, whole body and if you’re really skillful with your toes!
.
Most Mudras we practice in Rasa Yoga are created with the hands. These are called hasta mudras. There are hundreds of mudras and each one creates a unique flow & current in the energetic body.
.
Each finger correlates to one of the great 5 elements:
THUMB ~ FIRE
INDEX ~ AIR
MIDDLE ~ ETHER/SPACE
RING ~ EARTH
PINKY ~ WATER
.
By combining your fingers in a specific way, you will feel the force of these great elements coming together and through holding the Mudra: shift your energy state, cultivate empowerments and honor these energies. Sit anywhere from 5-20 minutes with a Mudra to feel the effects.
.
This simple Mudra is one we practice often in yoga called Anjali or Namaskara Mudra. It represents the great coming together at the root of the heart and honors the self, the whole of your journey and life. Often done at the beginning and ending of a yoga class, it shows respect between the student & teacher.
.

M A N T R A + Day 1 of the @rasayogatribe Instagram Challenge with @alli_shafer .
A tool to heal, protect + bring peace to mind.
A means to awaken the mind + enliven the heart.
.
Mantra in its essence, is Sacred Sound Vibration. I consider all words to have sacred potency, and these from Martin Luther King, Jr, are of the highest vibration.
In its simplest form, mantra’s a chant – we sing & chant the sound of OM ॐ – the Cosmic YES that holds everything.
.
Mantra invites us to connect with the energies of the Divine – it illuminates our divine remembrance too, reminding us that we are the vibration of love, strength, compassion + Grace.
.
Whenever + wherever you chant, allow your whole body to soak up the sound. Chant as if the Divine was chanting you, and sing with all of your Heart! Namaste!

I walked 3.5 miles today in “Feels Like” -1 deg (Fahrenheit) to and from a client’s home. Best decision ever. Movement is our birthright. Movement hydrates and invigorates your cells. It stimulates your brain.
.
If movement is part of your promise to yourself this new year, join me tomorrow morning, WHATEVER the weather :), in Core Flow 10:30-11:45am at YogaWorks 14th St NW DC. You promised yourself.
.
On this walk, I fell in love again with a little section of the city that I hadn’t paid close attention to in a while. 14th Street has changed so much since 2001 when I lived on 12th and Q. I saw the vintage, the faded, the OG steel bars peeking out between newly constructed luxury. I was reminded of the spice and character, beauty and perseverance, sturdy bricks with more than a century of stories that still survives quietly stuffed between flashy neighbors. <3.Finally, to my #habesha and #orthodox friends, merry christmas: I'm eating ALL your food after class..Outfit (I adore these leggings so much) by @kiragraceyoga
