Yoga Pose & Focus : 5/31-6/5

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” – Alan Watts

This week, we’re encouraging you to explore the element of PLAY! Lila is the focus this week, and the concept of the Universe at play. Think about play when you watch kids or animals. There’s this fine line between joyful and intense. Lila is not just light and airy, the Universe throws us curve balls and plot twists into the play of our lives. How can you learn to dance (and maybe even laugh) at the plot twists and joyful / sometimes challenging sporadic nature of life?

We are practicing chaturanga dandasana in our flow classes (because nothing says play like a pushup right?) and seal pose in our yin/restorative classes (make sure to bring a ball to balance on your nose, hey?).
