June 2017 FWFG Yoga Calendar - A Little Goes a Long Way

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.

April 2017 FWFG Yoga Calendar - FLOW

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.

February 2017 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Committed

"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.

January 2017 Yoga Calendar - Revolution

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.

November 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Foundations II

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.

August 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Yoga Mind

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.

July 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Workshop

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.

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.

May 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Yoga STRONG

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.

April 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Going Deeper

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.

March 2016 FWFG Yoga Calendar - FLOW

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.

December 2015 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Fighting Stress

Because I enjoyed November's calendar so much, I decided to make one for December! The focus of this month's calendar is "Embracing the Holidays and Fighting the Stress". The videos I picked for December all center around relieving the stress that builds during the holiday season, going with the flow, and being present. I tried to pick some shorter videos too because I know how busy we all get in December.

November 2015 FWFG Yoga Calendar - Foundations

Yoga seems to be having a very big moment right now. It seems to be cropping up all over the place these days. I have been doing yoga on and off for the last 15 years or so. But it wasn't until the last couple of years that I truly began to understand and appreciate all that yoga has to offer. Because of my deep respect and appreciation of yoga I could not be happier that so many people are now discovering yoga too!
