Episode 68: Align and Re-Align with Sensitivity- Level 1-2 75 min Yoga Class

Looking up

Be Open to Uncertainty

Aligning and Re-Aligning

My baby girl has recently started having solid food. She got constipated. One would imagine that the only thing that it would affect, would be her demeanor, as she was pretty uncomfortable. In fact, this constipation made other things come out of alignment. She was unable to process her food properly because nothing was really moving :( She threw up. A lot. This made me very worried, as she had never done that before! This is this week’s yoga class theme. Listen to find out what my very wise Randy had to say and how it all turned out :) Oh yeah, the class was recorded on April 22 at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association

Thank you all for your comments!

Just to let you all know. I’m plan on supplementing the live yoga classes with little extra episodes sprinkled here and there. Since the yoga classes themselves are so long, I never want to make my intro more than 6 minutes, as you really need to be getting to practicing! Given this predicament, I’ve decided to address emails, questions and feedback that I get from you guys in another supplement of the podcast, this is going to be all about Elsie’s Yoga Kula, meaning both YOU GUYS (your feedback, your questions, etc) and a little bit of extra sharing on my part, thoughts, focused classes, or practices, or even news about yoga products or any other online yoga tools that I have found helpful.

What do you think about that? Let me know!

To add just a bit more to my plate I have started a new website/business :) YoGeek.Me. I have posted my very first blog post there: Top 10 Ways That Technology Empowers Yoga Professionals. Check it out! I would love for you to leave your comments, especially if you are a yoga teacher or maybe someone that simply feels a bit awkward with technology!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL THE LOVELY MAMAS OUT THERE!!!!!

All right, so here we go.

Hi really like your Blog, what are you thoughts on hatha yoga? I also found this really good guide on yoga that I think I might get, do you know any one that has got it and if it is any good? Here is the link http://budurl.com/runnersyoga

Sometimes it’s really that simple, isn’t it? I feel a little stupid for not thinking of this myself/earlier, though.

Hello! I was lucky enough to come across your blog. Thanks for sharing such great stuff :) I’m just going through your site now as I am taking a teacher training. But, my comment has nothing to do with yoga (and it is about 8 months late!), I was actually gonna comment on your baby’s constipation- in a good way. Have you tried putting some good oils in her food like mashed up banana with (first cold pressed) olive oil? That helped my nephews when they made the move to solids.
Just a thought…
Take care!!
