Happy Wednesday!!   I hope your week is going well! This week in my classes, I am focusing on sneaking in a little more strength movements in the my classes with the addition of a block. I am always interested in providing opportunities for my students to experience poses in an unique way to not only keep the practice interesting but also to provide a different stimulus to the body. When the poses are always done in the same way, the body begins to get used to the poses and you may not get the maximum benefit. The block adds a load or weight to the body which will engage muscles more and help you to get stronger. I invite you to approach these poses with curiosity and see how it feels!

Also because of the rotation and the movement in the abdominal area when twisting, you support your digestive system and the lymphatic system of the body.
