The car was loaded with two bikes, two wetsuits, and a ton of other gear (as both of us would be racing) when my fiance and I drove to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to participate in

Any yoga practice is made up of a sequence of postures. While the time each posture is held generally one moves toward longer holds, and finally to rest, usually in shavasana. While the same postures will not be in every practice, a practice usually will include a variety of postures, chosen to balance direction of movement and areas of stretch and so on. It is the flow and balance between the postures that matters, as much as the postures themselves. There are hundreds of postures, though many of these are variations on what I would call base postures.

The key to being the best that you can be is preplanning. Don’t just go through life by the seat of your pants. Strategize. Book your exercise sessions like they are mandatory meetings. You will be mentally prepared to workout at your scheduled times. Plan your routine based on the amount of time you have available. If you only have 20 minutes, maybe work on speed training. If you have more time, maybe focus on slow and steady distance. When strength training, give muscle groups 72 hours to recover. Make a grocery list before you go food shopping. Stick to the list.

Everchanging Fitness: More Than Just a Workout
Maybe you’ve searched online or been told the importance of cooling down after a workout.

It is widely understood that one of the huge differences in lifestyle between modern people and their ancestors is that we sit a lot more and walk a lot less. This sitting, particularly sitting for long periods in chairs, and particularly in front of desks with our head and shoulders hunched forward, has contributed to a lot of discomfort and injury. And it has only been made worse by being combined with the even more hours of the day peering down at screens of varying sizes and types.

Everchanging Fitness: More Than Just a Workout
Believe me, you aren’t alone. It happens to the best of us. A meeting goes a bit too long, those jerks in front of you don’t know how to drive, maybe you had to repair a flat tire on your bike.

Is back pain familiar to you? If so, you’re not alone. Eighty percent of the population of the US, at some point in their lives, with suffer from chronic or acute low back pain. That’s a frightening statistic. About 2% to 10% of people who experience low back pain develop chronic low back pain. The first thing most people do when low back pain strikes is reach for the pain pills. Advil and other over-the-counter medications have numerous side effects and will lose their effectiveness when used in the long term. Instead let’s use our body to heal our pain.

Leg Series is a set of postures I developed as a very gentle way to stretch the legs and hips.  I particularly like to use it myself after I have been travelling and sitting a lot, or at the end of a long day.  It is gentle enough that it works for most students.
