#repost from a dear student of my @yogaanatomyacademy online mentorship who also attended “Chaturanga Clinic” last Sunday.
here are her words:
“Wonderful “Fantastic Chaturanga workshop with Dr. Ariele Foster at @yogaworks_dc yesterday! I believe whether you are an instructor or student, you should always work to improve your practice. Seek out people that inspire you!
After the workshop, I couldn’t resist going into a shop called Love and Faith. Inside I saw this sign that has a message that will resonate with my 11 year old son and all his friends..”yo mamma” Dr. Foster is leading a Yoga Anatomy studies retreat in Andalucia Spain in October. Oh, how I wish I could go”
P.S. the “Love Juice” at Love n’ Faith Cafe is YUM5000!
P.P.S. – buy the audio version of my “Chaturanga Clinic” at

#ThrowbackThursday to 2014 :)!

Sacred Source Yoga (Ariele)

Juicing the flow doesn’t mean dropping in more pretty arm balances to your practice. It means to be able to pause at any point in your practice – simple or complex and hold, be stable and notice. Why are you there? Where are you going? Are you present or are you rushing to the next pose like you ran to the metro this morning? Join me at @epicyogadc for the #juicetheflow workshop tomorrow night. We will do deep self study using the physical asana practice as our map. Just For signing up, receive 10% off your purchase at @jrinkjuicery . The other kind of juice 🙂 warrior capris by @kiragraceyoga. music: #africanheadcharge one destination

Chaturanga Clinic happens THIS Sunday at 2pm at YogaWorks 14th St NW Who’s joining?

Chaturanga is a pose we repeat hundreds of times a month, or possibly even each week in flow or vinyasa ygoa. It can be a massive shoulder shredder. Form is essential in chaturanga to protect your rotator cuff, neck, and even low back. We’ll explore not only the static pose but also the transitions into and out of chaturanga (including the #jumpback) so join me — Dr. Ariele Foster — physical therapist and yoga teacher since 2001 — this Sunday to refine and uplevel your chaturanga. (yoga teachers, you need this too!)
