This month is all about Self Love. Sometimes life's busyness gets in the way of taking care of ourselves properly; sometimes we get in our own way. Whatever the reason, I am here to tell you (and tell myself!) that treating ourselves with love is really the only way to go through life. We are better equipped to serve others and life is happier and more peaceful when we love ourselves.Read More
August is here and with it comes a new yoga calendar and a special membership 7 day yoga series called Yoga Ritual from Yoga with Adriene. This new series is the inspiration for this month's calendar.Read More
This month invites you to connect your yoga practice with nature. Challenge yourself to take your practice outside this month. And if the weather is not permitting of that, practice in front of a window facing nature outside.Read More
This month we are going to take it in a different direction. This month we will explore how "a little (truly) goes a long way." Maybe your body is asking for shorter practices after the intensity of last month. Or maybe you barely have half an hour to practice each day. If so, then this month is for you! All the videos on June's calendar are 20 minutes or less.Read More
Here we are a year later, heading toward summer in the Northern Hemisphere. I decided to focus on strength again this May since it was helpful last year. With that in mind, the theme for this month's Find What Feels Good yoga calendar is STRONG.Read More
Seasons are changing, Spring for us in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn for those in the Southern Hemisphere. And with these seasonal shifts are often feelings of restlessness or uncertainty. With this in mind, I have created the April Find What Feels Good Yoga Calendar for the Yoga with Adriene community. This month we will focus on flow.Read More
Here's the March FWFG Yoga Calendar! This month's theme is balance. I have selected and arranged the practices to help us work on both balancing in our practice and also balancing in life. Take this month and use the tools of yoga to cultivate balance on and off the mat.Read More
"Stay committed to the journey, to finding what feels good." - Adriene Mishler
It's a new month, another chance to stay committed to our yoga practice. Another opportunity to stay committed to self-care. Another moment to stay committed to self-love.
And if you haven't committed to any of these yet, now is as good of a time as any to commit. Commit to your yoga practice, commit to self-care, commit to self-love.
The yoga calendar I created for the Yoga with Adriene community is an invitation to do just that. It is an invitation each day to nurture yourself and show yourself love through these yoga practices.Read More
Every year Yoga with Adriene kicks off the new year with a month long yoga program. This year she is kicking off the new year with a Yoga REVOLUTION! I have participated with all her January yoga programs every year, some years more completely than others. ;) And I can't wait for this one!
This program will be suitable for everyone because Adriene will provide options for beginners and those more advanced. Her January programs really are a wonderful way to start off a new year. I highly encourage you to try it out this year. Whether you have done yoga before or not, this would be an excellent way to begin the new year.Read More
December is here and the holidays are upon us now. And with that comes all the busyness and stress mixed in with the joy of the month. It was with this in mind that I created the Yoga with Adriene FWFG (find what feels good) calendar for December.Read More
I was thinking about the newest 30 Days of Yoga program by YWA coming in January and thought it might be helpful to focus the November and December calendars on preparing for it. For November we will be focusing on asanas by focusing on the individual poses in the Foundations of Yoga videos. Then in December we will focus on getting our mind ready for the next 30 Days of Yoga program.Read More
This month we will spend some time going back to basics, but we will mix that up with some intermediate practices and poses as well. Throw in a few mind-focused practices and we will be all set to spend September renewing our yoga practice.Read More
From Adriene’s letter (7/13/16): “This year we kicked 2016 off with Yoga Camp which reminded us to check out self talk and to implement a conscious daily practice that wasn’t just good for physique but for the mind as well. I figured half way through the year here we could all stand to reconnect with just that. Mental health to join or re-join your squad goals.Read More
This month’s focus is opening up. Sundays and Thursdays are our workshop days. Each Sunday we work through a foundation video of an opening asana. The foundation videos are short so take your time working through them. On Thursdays we will check back in to see how our asana has grown and to pickup any tidbits we may have missed the first time. Then explore more or freestyle using the foundation video as a jumping off point on Thursdays. The rest of the month is filled with practices that will help us grow the four foundation poses that are the focus of this month.Read More
For June the some of the YWA community will be revisiting the original 30 days yoga program- 30 Days of Yoga by Yoga with Adriene. For this time through I have created mantras to compliment each day's practice. I tried to capture the heart of each practice with the mantras I picked.Read More
I used these thoughts to make the May yoga calendar for the Yoga with Adriene community. I chose practices from Adriene's library that will tone and strengthen the body. You will see some videos for the month that come from her "Weight Loss" series too. Before you knock the videos for being focused on weight loss, try one or two before you make your opinion up. I know that you will be pleasantly surprised by the approach she takes to weight loss. I love how Adriene brings her gentle and encouraging FWFG approach to all her videos, including the weight loss ones.Read More
March was a time of transition and turmoil for many people I know. It bothered me to see so many unsettled. Those concerns were forefront in my mind as I sat down to create the yoga calendar for the Yoga with Adriene community for April.
Spring is a time of change. We are coming out of the cold months and wanting to shake off the dreary and try new things. It can also be a time of restlessness as we look around at all the changes occurring in nature and begin to crave a change for ourselves too.Read More
For the month of March l I decided to create a calendar built around the idea of flowing. March is a time of change as the seasonal shifts become more apparent. I have come to realize that Spring and Autumn stir up in me feelings of restlessness and feelings of wanting to make changes. And I don't think I'm alone in feeling this way. I see signs of it in others around me as well. Those restless feelings can be a useful thing if we take that energy and use it to take action in our lives. For myself, I know that when I try to ignore those feelings I end up feeling miserable. So for March, I decided to embrace this restless energy and direct it into my yoga practice.Read More
REBOOT is a 29 day yoga program. It was the original yoga program created by Yoga with Adriene. It was also the program that brought many of us in the YWA community together for the first time. It was out of this shared experience that our beloved kula was born.Read More
