Summer is right around the corner (although you'd never know it looking out the window)!  This month we'll finish up our Spring classes, but registration has already begun for our summer sessions at most places.  We've seen such a difference in our ability to offer classes when people register early, we urge you to take advantage of this again for summer.

Please visit us at www.intoyoga.ca or go direction to our class display page at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.  Find the class, location and time that suits you, then call the facility listed to register.

Summer is busy for a lot of people.  Nice weather, vacations, and kids out of school have us condensing the classes we offer July and August.  But you can still choose from

Yoga For Athletes
Beginner Yoga
Pilates

Restorative Yoga
Yoga that Fits
Yoga for Older Adults

Prenatal Yoga
Yoga for Anxiety Relief

As we head into summer, we are making our final decisions for Fall classes.  Please be sure to let us know what you'd like to see offered.  Email us at info@intoyoga.ca and let us know what you want.

We hope you enjoy our June newsletter.
 




 DOs and DON'Ts of Popular Yoga Poses

In trying to "perfect" or get the most out of our Yoga poses, we often stray from correct alignment.  This can put added stress onto different parts of our body, and is NOT what Yoga is all about.  It's important to be comfortable in each position and keep the integrity of the alignment and support.  This link will help you explore the dos and don'ts of traditional Hatha Yoga poses and give you the confidence to practice at home.

Meditate on Telomeres

Want to manage stress, clear your mind, and enhance your mood? A few minutes of meditation a day could help and, new research finds, might help increase activity of an enzyme that keeps your body younger at the level of your DNA.

As anyone taking Isagenix Product B is aware, boosting expression of the enzyme telomerase in the body is critical for maintaining the length and integrity of telomeres. Telomeres, the length of which are considered a biomarker of biological aging, are special complexes that cap chromosomes to protect DNA.  To continue reading, click here.

About Yoga and its Secret Goal
by Yogi Mir

I would like to share a secret about yoga and its real purpose. Perhaps, you already know what it is.

Reflect for a moment.

After all, isn’t all knowledge ‘hanging’ somewhere in some collective consciousness? Often, learning is remembering, or recognizing something distantly familiar.

As a cohesive and practical system, yoga was developed over five thousand years ago. Why did it take this long to become popular? Five thousand years! There have been many yogis throughout history, but never was the system so widespread as it is today. Is there something about yoga that stunted its growth in the past?  To continue reading click here.

Kid's Yoga Warm Ups
By

 

Yoga for kids is an excellent way to increase flexibility and get exercise. Another benefit to children is the fact that many of them retain nervous energy, and Yoga can help settle that energy, and help them grow focused and relaxed. This is of added importance, in a time when too much television and unhealthy eating have caused an increase in obesity and attention deficit disorders, such as ADHD in children.

Yoga warm-ups serve at least two purposes. First, warm-up exercises work as a prelude into more focused Yoga sessions. As a result, warm-ups can be more fun and relaxed, catching the attention of children, and serving to transition them into a quieter session of poses. Second, warm-up exercises are especially important for loosening joints and limbering up cold or tight muscles. Getting the blood circulating, and the muscles responsive in young bodies, can help prevent pain or injury in poses.

Nine Tips for Yoga Warm-Ups with Kids

1. Weave a narrative or story into the warm-up session. Doing so catches kids' attention and captures their imaginations. Story-telling can also help them make connections between what they are doing with their bodies and how that relates to their wider world.

2. Encourage kids to laugh during warm-ups. This should be a time when kids are releasing energy and settling down, so making it fun will go a long way toward helping them achieve this. It will also keep young people from getting bored and causing mischief. Making jokes, or exaggerating exercises and explanatory gestures, keeps the atmosphere relaxed and fun.

3. Use creative stretches and easy poses during warm-ups. Jiggling, standing on tip toes, palm stretches, side twists, rag doll poses, and downward-facing dog poses all serve as easy, limbering exercises that kids can start with.

4. Get everyone involved. Sing songs like "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes," or get kids to suggest new lines for songs or stories, to encourage universal participation.

5. Kids Yoga warm-ups should last for five to ten minutes.

6. Remind kids that Yoga breathing is always done through the nose, unless allergies or colds make that impossible.

7. Even though this should be a fun time for the kids, the instructor should stay vigilant about the safety of children. Remember that a child's joints are looser than an adult's, so ensuring kids keep a slight bend in their elbows and knees can prevent over-extended joints.

8. Children cannot hold a Yoga pose for as long as adults can, so encourage shorter poses and more repetitions, which will keep them from getting tired or losing balance.

9. Finish the Kids Yoga session with one or two quiet breathing exercises. Telling a story, or having kids use their imaginations, can help them leave feeling relaxed rather than hyper-active. It can be easy to focus on the physical benefits Yoga can have for children, but they should come away feeling more relaxed and at ease than when they arrived.
