I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and your 2013 is filled with abundance and joy. 

This is the time of year that resolutions are made, especially when it comes to our health.  But how many times (years) have you made a commitment to do it "right" only to fall off shortly after.  This year, make it different.  Join our Healthy Body Challenge and have a chance to win lots of fabulous prizes.  Click here to find out more.  Registration ends January 1, but for readers of this newsletter, I'll extend the deadline to January 3 2013....so contact me NOW at info@intoyoga.ca.

To get even better results, couple the Healthy Body Challenge with our new Yoga for Weight Loss at Champlain Heights.

If you've got little ones, consider trying our Yoga Tots or our new Kid's Yoga, Movement and Dance class.  They'll love it!

Of course we still  have your favorites like, Hatha Yoga, Yoga for Older Adults, Yoga for Anxiety Relief, Prenatal Yoga, Baby Sign Language and much more.  Visit us at www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.

Boat Pose
www.about.com

 

Instructions:

1. From a seated position, bring the legs straight up to a 45 degree angle.

2. The torso will naturally fall back, but do not let the spine collapse. Make a "V" shape with the body.

3. Bring the arms out straight in line with the shoulders.

4. Balance on the sit bones.

Beginners: Bend the knees if necessary, bringing the calves parallel the the floor. This is Half Boat Pose (click the photo to see this variation).

Advanced: To increase core strength, release from the pose bringing the legs and torso simultaneously towards the floor and hold just before you touch the floor. Come back up into the pose like a sit-up. Repeat this several times.

If you're more visual, here's a great video to help you go through the Boat Pose

Ten Stretches for the Office
 by Diann Daniel


Ever have the feeling that your shoulders have risen all the way up to your ears, and your back is turning into a knot from sitting all day while you work? Stress relief is only a step away, from your desk, that is. With these 10 yoga poses and stretches—which you can do at the office—along with a focus on deep breathing, it’s easy to let some of your stress fall away.

Loosen up the kinks and knots that form after being glued to your seat hour after hour, and you’ll be more refreshed and ready to tackle anything…even the next Meeting From Hell. "Our bodies simply weren't meant to sit all day long,” says Sandy Blaine, author of Yoga for Computer Users and longtime resident yoga teacher and wellness consultant at Pixar Animation Studios.  To continue reading click here.

Yoga for Kids
www.about.com

Children can enjoy many of the same benefits of yoga that adult do, such as improved body awareness, coordination, and stress relief. Although children are naturally flexible, they probably will not do the poses “correctly” in the adult sense of the word, so it’s important to keep things simple. More than learning the poses, the yoga experience will encourage kids to explore the unfamiliar with open minds and be comfortable in their bodies. For kids who are not good at (or don’t enjoy) conventional sports, yoga may provide a much-needed physical outlet in a noncompetitive environment.   To continue reading, click here.

Quote of the Month:

When in recollection he withdraws all his senses from the attractions of the pleasures of sense, even as a tortoise withdraws all his limbs, then his is a serene wisdom. ~Bhagavad Gita
