The Watering Hole
October 14, 2014
In no particular order: Beach days are a necessity for peace of mind. Never give up, even on your darkest days. Keep pushing those creative edges…flirt with boundaries. The cure for everything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea. ~Isak Dineson Listen more. Read. Good friends are priceless. Magic just..happens. Finish what you start. Self care is not selfish. Learning to just be is really hard. Breathe. Change is inevitable. Strength is not always physical. Just keep moving. Never,

It starts with attitude. And ends with bhavana. (feeling) And in between? An ever evolving energetic imprint of a community that calls this practice space home. Our hopes, fears, triumphs, failures, tears and laughter. It’s all here, left on a mat. But when the mat is rolled up and neatly put away, the energy of the practice remains, seeping into the floors and walls to form the core of this Sangha, this community. This is the Soul of a studio.

- yoga and Running with Megan Eddy
Our bodies are not perfectly balanced. Our bodies compensate for our imbalances which cause tight muscles to get tighter and weak muscles get weaker. The repetitiveness of running further causes challenges . Yoga will help to strengthen weak muscles, lengthen tight muscles and improve range of motion. This class will introduce you to runner specific poses and routines you can use for all of your pre and post runs.
The mind is just as important as the physical body when it comes to running. Running is 90% mental. Train your mind and the body will follow. Using the breath as a tool to focus the mind, relax the body and conserve energy will make you a better runner. This class will teach you breathing techniques and will assist you in identifying wasted energy.
