Strength Fusion Fitness Class This Sunday November 24th

This Sunday Anne is subbing for Brooke and her 9 am Strength Fusion Fitness Class at Sellwood Yoga (well across the street from the studio at Align that is).

Reverse Warrior 6.13

This is not your typical yoga class! We mix yoga poses, strength work and plyometrics to keep things interesting. Not into jumping? Come on down and I will modify the explosive moves for a more knee friendly yet challenging experience. All are welcome.

Please preregister so that we know to look for you. If you have any trouble finding the studio or unlocking the door call Anne’s cell (503) 705-4762.

Yoga “Camel” Pose – Back Strength And Flexibility

We took advantage of the end of summer weather this month with outdoor yoga! Here Betsy demonstrates one of our September Five – Camel Pose.

This is a lovely back bend that when executed correctly feels like a wonderful stretch for your back, neck, quads, abs, almost your entire body. I like to cue my clients with the “Fosbury Flop” image, or feeling as if you are clearing a high jump bar by lifting up and out through your chest (rather than hunkering down).

As with all of these exercises you should not feel pain in your back, neck or knees. If you do feel pain, modify this move so that you can hold this position and breathe.
