TRANSFORMATION TAKES WORK: GROW A HOME PRACTICE
9 Week Special, Thursday nights, Jan 14 – March 10, 2016 
Willow Street Yoga Center, Silver Spring, MD

Yoga has the potential to be a transformational practice for our bodies, minds, and lives. But making change requires more than coming to class once a week. In this series of 9 classes, we will work to develop a home practice specifically tailored to your life and your needs. We will work on many aspects of yoga, including asana, breath work, meditation, chanting, and moving around the world with more awareness and care. Please bring a notebook and paper, as well as a picture-taking device. At least one year of weekly yoga experience required.  To register, go to: http://www.willowstreetyoga.com/class_descriptions/transformation-takes-work-grow-a-home-practice/

 

Stone Temple Pilots Jam

From sadness to strength, practicing to the Stone Temple Pilots after hearing about Scott Weiland’s untimely death.

Practicing for real for the first time in over a week, eeks, maybe more.  (Yes, I have done some kind of yoga everyday, just not kick my butt, work hard physical yoga.)  Feeling so sloth like, winter body already here.  But by the fire, with Charlie and the Stone Temple Pilots, and then inspired to try something hard for me.  Bam.

Life is short, friends.

Do yoga.  Today.  Something for you.  And tomorrow. And everyday. Even when I don’t nag.

Peace and practice,
Daisy

Advanced Practice?

What is advanced yoga? This seems to be the hard pose of the week, in some of my classes, including tomorrow morning at extendYoga. And in the classes of others. Getting the leg back and up is not easy for me, especially on this side. But it happens. Because I #practice. And because my teachers help me learn. ❤️🙏🏻

Some days it may feel like I am winging it. But mostly, I try to practice with wisdom to make sure this aging house of mine is feeling cared for and nourished, and I am actually inhabiting it, living and breathing in whatever shape, even in some of the crazy ones, like this pose. It doesn’t always happen. But that is the goal. That is the work. That is my most advanced practice. Being in this moment, in this body, whatever the shape.

What is your yoga? Can you meet yourself right where you are? And breathe. And maybe move. Or maybe just work on being present for each inhale. Each exhale. That is hard yoga. That is an advanced practice.

Stepping off my soap box.
For the moment.

Do #yoga. Your yoga. Whatever that is. Today. Every day.

Happy Friday, friends.

Peace,
Daisy

I Love My Job


Bag of “tricks.” These are my traveling private yoga teacher necessities.

I love my job. This is good work.

Today, I got to spend some time with two very lovely women, one of whom we worked to build her a home yoga practice. She is very new to yoga. But motivated to practice on her own. I can’t wait to see how it goes for her.

Yoga is it. For body and mind.

Do some. #PRACTICE. However and wherever you can make it happen. Today. Everyday.

Peace,
Daisy, aka Yoga Nag

Real Life. 

Fun Friday flow. From your missing in action Yoga Nag. Sorry, folks, been living my yoga camera-free for a few days. Back today with a peppy little flow for a rainy day. It’s some of what we did in our @willowstyoga #flow and fly last night. Again today here with a friend. And again for the camera, all crooked and crazy, in the midst of pup, mud, kids and cupcakes. Good times.

Do #yoga. Today. Everyday. #Practice. Something. Anything. But do it.

Peace out.
