In this Pose of the Week, Noah Mazé demonstrates Upward Facing Dog or Urdvha Mukha Svanasana. We begin in the same position as we would for Cobra. Pin your shoulders back and press your finger pads down and stretch the legs back actively. Scoop your tailbone, push down with the arms and rise up.
In this Pose of the Week, Noah Mazé demonstrates Upward Hand Pose or Urdhva Hastasana. Standing in Tadasana, inhale while stretching your arms out to the sides and over your head, fingers reaching up toward the sky. To complete the pose, bring your hands together. Modify this pose by separating the hands and arms so that they’re shoulder width apart.
In this week’s Overheard in Yoga Class, Noah Mazé reminds us to keep good company, as often times we become the company that we keep. In yoga, we keep the company of great people who inspire us to be our best. When we are at our best, it is then that we can inspire others to be THEIR best.
In this Pose of the Week, Noah Mazé and Tara Judelle demonstrate Mountain Pose or Tadasana. The classic pose is done with the feet and legs together, the body in a straight line, the chest lifted and the throat open so the gaze is to the horizon. Noah and Tara also provide two modifications for this pose.
In this Pose of the Week, Noah walks us through Utthita Trikonasana or Extended Triangle Pose. As you lean over, make sure to keep the leg straight, steady, strong and stable. If the front knee has the tendency to bend, Noah suggests placing a block underneath the bottom hand.
