Common Beginner Yoga Mistakes to Avoid
Today I want to address the most common errors I see people making in yoga postures and give you detailed instruction for how to correct these mistakes and maintain proper form.
Experienced yogis (and even certified yoga instructors) are guilty of making these common yoga mistakes. Being aware of these mistakes is important for anyone practicing yoga or interested in practicing yoga. You shouldn’t have to rely on your yoga instructor to always adjust you and correct your technique.

I was almost crushed by a tree branch this morning (Off the Mat)
I was out on my morning walk, and out of nowhere I heard an extremely loud CRASH!!!!
When I heard the noise, I had just crossed the street with my dogs (Flowtron & Kaya) to return home, and I was with two other dog-owning neighbors of mine. Each of us spun around and to see what had happened, and were shocked to see that a HUGE branch had suddenly fallen out of a nearby tree – in the same exact spot we had been walking not more than a minute before. (You can see for yourself in the photo inside.)

Best Stretching Routine to Counter Sitting
Traveling is a great way to maintain balance in your life, destress, and boost creativity and overall happiness. Traveling also usually means sitting for an extended period of time in a car or on a plane. This routine includes 5 postures and is designed to efficiently counter the negative effects of sitting in just 10-12 minutes. These stretches can also be incorporated into your day on a regular basis to counter sitting at a desk or on a couch.
When we sit our hip flexors are inactive and in a shorted position, our glutes are inactive, our shoulders and spine round, and our chest tightens. These postures are effective at countering sitting because they work to put your body in the opposite position and engage muscle groups that are dormant while you sit.

Pre-Travel Stretches for Air Travel
I get this question a lot: "What are some stretches I can do BEFORE getting on a plane?" If you're going to be sitting on a plane for Several hours, you're gonna want to do some movement beforehand. Otherwise your butt's going to start hurting, and your lower back is going to get stiff.
Let's open up the chest with some back bends, prep the hips with hip flexor stretching and do a few twists to get the glutes moving. You might get a few odd looks in the terminal, but you'll feel a lot better on the plane!
