Turning 4 – Our Birthday!

This Saturday, May 13, 2017 – We are celebrating our Birthday!!! From 7-10pm we are having a Dance Party with a DJ at the Log Cabin. Tickets are $20 and there is a cash bar downstairs! We are going to raise our glasses (probably plastic cups) up high, shake our butts low and move our feet!!! See your friends, neighbors and family, be prepared to have a GREAT time! contact amy@marinpoweryoga.com to reserve your ticket, half the tickets are already taken and you can not buy tickets at the door.

Remember Where You Came From

Looking back, we have come a long way! It took 6 months just to get our  lease, the landlord was ok with yogis, but not so thrilled with the idea of hot yoga. We negotiated and talked and came to an agreement that achieved both or our goals, we installed a floor and painted and opened a few weeks after signing. We started with 25 power yoga classes on the schedule, 5 of them 6am classes!!! 4 years later we have 95 classes a week! Yes, we have 40 Power Yoga Classes and added to the mix are Gentle Yoga, Yin, Meditation, Stop Drop and Dance, TRX, TKO (Kick Boxing) and we are testing Turbo Kick and Zumba!!!

How else have we grown in the last 4 years? We have teachers who have babies, Members have fallen out of love and found love, we have fought cancer and strokes, raised thousands of dollars for our local schools and national non-profits and the Africa Yoga Project, created a Yoga alliance certified Teacher Training Program for 200 hr and 300 hr. yoga teachers. We launched a Power Cycle program and killed the program. Our failures have been just as real as our successes!

What are we working on now? We are launching the Marin Yoga Foundation this month! The purpose of this Foundation is to provide Yoga, Meditation, Fitness, Leadership and Training to underserved women and children in Marin County. We want to extend the benefits of what we experience to our greater community, to people who can’t financially afford luxuries such as pre-emptive healthcare and who are willing to do the work. In some ways this is the biggest thing we have ever done. In other ways, this is all we do.

What is it like to be finally entering kindergarten? We still make mistakes, we rarely draw in between the lines, we are just as likely to fall down as we are to hit a home run and we have so much to learn. We have to face our fears, real and imaginary, every time we start something new. We have to get up every time we are knocked down. We have faith there is light at the end of the tunnel, especially when it seems impossibly dim. We believe in the power of Kindness, Compassion and LOVE.

As we finish our 4th year, I am so grateful to our team of teachers and support staff who keep Marin Power Yoga evolving, our Members who witness us change in real time, all of the guest teachers who have taken time out of their lives to share their knowledge and experience with us, our amazing Town of San Anselmo (from fellow residents to the local government) and most of all to the Littles – the kids who remind us of the importance of improving our Health and of living a life of Service and Joy.

We Are Stronger Together!!!

Move to Release

I’m sure you have all heard the term, ‘I workout because it’s cheaper than therapy’. Ain’t that the truth?

After a workout you feel better. It doesn’t matter what kind of workout it is, just as long as there’s movement. When you move, things shift. Energy begins to flow and pump through your body and creates a pulse that emanates from your being. With this movement comes sensation and awareness.

Have you ever broken down during a workout? Whether it’s cried, screamed or laughed? Movement is the cause and your reaction is the affect. Our bodies store our emotions. Physical, mental and emotional traumas get stuck inside us. Our skin is like a capsule, keeping all of that bottled up nicely for us. If we don’t get them out, they will cause major issues; muscle tension, clouded judgement, even disease, to name a few. Have you ever broken down the word ‘disease’? DIS-EASE: a body not at ease. 

We need to take better care of ourselves on every level. When you workout, of course do it for the physical change and strength, but take it a step further. Do it to release your traumas. Scream, cry, laugh LET IT OUT!!! You will feel so much better and your mind, body and soul will thank you.

I will leave you with this…..

“Tears, movement, and sound are part of your emotional digestive system. They help release blocked energy in your body. Moving through pain by feeling your way through it is ‘the pain that ends the pain'”. -unknown

Tuning In To Music

Music is the culture of Revolution. It gives voice to the masses, it communicates what is in our hearts. The subject of music is widely discussed in yoga studios. Should we only play Indian music honoring the past (did they even play music in their yoga classes 4,000 years ago), should we avoid music and observe noble silence, does music interfere with our thoughts, does the music guide us on our journey, is the music obscure enough, too much pop, too loud, too quiet?

I love music. In some senses, I hear music everywhere I go. The whirling rhythm of bike wheels spinning, the back beat of car doors slamming, the wailing of a child cutting across the soundscape like a Gibson Hollow Body Guitar. When I lay my head on my pillow and the silence becomes overwhelming, I hear songs playing. No voices telling me to do things, just music guiding the rhythm of my life.

When looking at sound options for Marin Power Yoga, I listened to a variety of speakers and talked with experts. I knew we needed the voice to be clear and crisp, with throbbing bass underneath. I knew we needed to be energized by the depth of the kick drum and motivated by the crack of the snare. Our souls vibrate at their own frequency, guiding our bodies and freeing our minds. It is our choice to hear the music, to listen carefully, to understand the deeper meaning.

Somewhere along the line, yoga teachers became DJs. We monitor and control all aspects of the ambiance in the room, from the lights to the heat to the music being played. It is your choice to let go of control and dive into the experience, or to see the lights as too bright or too dim and the music as too loud or inappropriate. Whether you find Bob Marley in Savasana offensive or the pulsating bass of Michael Franti annoying, you always have the option to let go and allow the music to move you.

There is a time for silence and it has it’s place in every class. As you listen carefully you will find the silence deafening, whether it is your pulsating heartbeat blowing your ear drums out or the sound of a fire truck passing thru town or a little Huey Lewis reminding us it’s hip to be square. Stop fighting the music and start moving with the rhythm of life the envelopes your soul.

Below is a link to one of my favorite playlists of Michael Franti & Spearhead Songs. Best if played LOUD.

Why I Meatless Monday…

I have given this a lot of thought over the last few months. Why should I begin to change my Monday’s? Why should I go meatless? Can one day a week of not eating meat really make a difference?

Meatless Monday’s are self explanatory. Don’t indulge in eating meat, of any type, every Monday. Given the research I have done, refraining from eating meat one day a week makes a huge impact not only with saving animals, but with environmental impacts, as well as body health.

If saving animals isn’t enough to want to take a pause on meat then maybe this will change your mind. Research shows that eating a plant-based diet, especially those low in processed meats can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Eating more veggies, fruits and whole grains can lower your risk for heart disease, curb obesity and limit cancer. All that aside, a change in your diet can help you live longer, stronger and happier. Now who doesn’t want that?

If I haven’t got you hooked yet, maybe your wallet will. Cutting back on meat indulgence will help keep money in your wallet. Meat is expensive. The amount of money it takes to produce meat; feed, transportation, etc., is a lot. The flip side of it, healthcare expenses. As stated above, the health reasons for cutting back are strong enough, but if you think about all those potential doctor bills, well I’ll skip a day of meat once a week for some clean, lean and green eating. 

Lastly, let’s do it for our environment. If we all cut one day out of eating meat, we could rapidly reduce water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and our dependence on fuel. Approximately 1,850 gallons of water is what it takes to produce 1 pound of ground beef, and only 39 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of greens. 

The final kicker … do it to save a life. To often we live in an out of sight out of mind mentality. We don’t do the dirty work, so we don’t see what happens. I started following “The Humane League” on Instagram. It’s not always the happiest of pictures, but it is a reality. I like to keep it real, with all that I see on social media, it’s good to have a reminder of what is going on in that, out of sight out of mind location.

So go ahead, jump in with me and ride the wave with Meatless Mondays! Your mind, body and spirit will thank you💖

Change is Good…Right?

The only constant in life is change. Whether we feel it’s good or bad, it’s all in how we perceive it. 

Change can be liberating. It can lift baggage and weight from our shoulders. The freedom that can come from change is invigorating. It’s euphoric. Creating space for new pathways for us to journey down. New adventures are always fun!

However, change can be scary. It can alter our emotions, cause rifts in our thinking and create painful marks on our hearts. Anxiety gets heightened, panic goes up and if we don’t get a hold on it, it can turn into depression. Being able to recognize what is happening in the body and the mind during change can be the difference between a long internal battle, or a short struggle.

How I have overcome my anxieties and depression (which can be a roller coaster) has been through the practice of yoga. Specifically through the moving meditation (asanas) and the breath work (pranayama). Every movement is a reminder to breathe deep. To reconnect with myself. To notice what is happening inside of me and to be ok with it. Creating change and space in the body to allow the journey to unfold. When I practice yoga I will sometimes “hit” a break-through; a pose, a deeper engaged breath or even a new thought. This is the change I seek. A new path has unfolded for me.

So if you struggle from anxiety, depression or any obstacles, know you are not alone. Step onto your mat, take a deep breath, envision the path before you and embrace the change.

Donating to the ACLU

We have been doing a lot of fundraising this year! Our first official fundraiser of the year was for the ACLU! As a community, we raised over $1,400 for the Northern California Chapter between cash raised, checks mailed in and online donations. If you are motivated to help protect all people, you can donate here: https://www.aclunc.org/donate – THANK YOU!!!

Why are we active in politics and fundraising? It starts with the complex yogic philosophy of Ahimsa, commonly described as Do No Harm. We recognize that if we do not take action to support people, they will be harmed. In other words, by not doing anything you can cause a lot of harm. We are Yogis, we take action to help ourselves and everyone else that we can. Sometimes this shows up as picking up a piece of glass on the sidewalk, other times by helping someone across the street. We are going to do our best to create awareness and “put our money where our mouth is” and raise money to support causes that actively help people and especially women. Be The Change.

Just A Spoonful Of … What?!

This cold/flu season has been a doozy.  It has hit us all at one point or another. Whether your sickness lasted for long or short periods, regardless it has sucked! The weather has a major factor on our physical and mental health.  Here are a few tips to stay healthy as the weather and our bodies make the transition from Winter into Spring.

  1. Get out! Whenever you see the warmth of the sun, step outside and bask in it.  Not only does it feel amazing, but exposing your body to sunlight aides in the production of Vitamin D which is essential for your body.  Vitamin D helps to boost the immune system.  So fill that life with some sunshine.

  2. Buzz Buzz Buzz! Their sting may be powerful but their honey packs a whole other punch, throwing it right at your allergies.  What?! That’s right. Add a tablespoon of LOCAL honey to your tea, oatmeal or just straight down the hatch during allergy season and it will help those nasty watery/itchy eyes and runny noses.  If you don’t like the sweeter side of life, go to your local health food store and grab some straight Bee Pollen.  Add it to your smoothies. Yum!

  3. ACV – Apple Cider Vinegar.  I live by this stuff.  100% Raw, Organic, Non-GMO, Unfiltered.  I take 1 tablespoon every day.  ACV is said to help with acid reflux, cures (yeast), regulates pH levels, relieves constipation, promotes good gut bacteria, detoxes the body, lowers blood pressure, balances blood sugar, fights allergies. Clears sinuses, fights colds, and has been researched and found to help fight cancer.

Ok. So … Are you thinking what I’m thinking?! Put the tea kettle on, grab your favorite mug, add a tablespoon of local honey, a tablespoon of ACV, a squeeze of lemon or maybe some ginger tea and go sit outside in soak up the sun!  Have a beautiful day! 

3 Lessons From Trolls

I had a sick day Sunday. Nothing was wrong. I woke up, had a couple of bagels, posted something on Facebook and passed out. I opened my eyes a little after 2pm and mumbled to Amy that I needed a sub and slept for a few more hours. I hate missing my class and I kind of hate sleeping. Maybe it was a sickness, maybe it was basic depression.

Amy and Olivia wanted to watch Trolls, they rented it and watched it while I was sleeping and were already eager to watch it again (3 short hours later).
I Love Trolls.

Glad we cleared that up. Seriously, I laughed, I cried, I remembered why we tell stories, why we believe and most important of all I felt BETTER.

3  Lessons from Trolls

  1. Hug More – Yes, every 30 minutes sounds like a great minimum requirement. It doesn’t matter if you need a hug or you have a hug to give, everybody wins.
  2. Happiness Is Inside ALL Of Us. You have everything you need to be happy. Let go of all of that crazy shit you say in your head and allow yourself to be happy. There is nothing you can eat, buy or be given that will make you happier than you can make yourself (awkward?).
  3. Sing and Dance When Ever Possible. This really should be obvious to all of us by now. WTF are we so boring, reserved and proper for? It took so much magic and incredible timing to get us here, right now. The fastest way to feel that energy is to SING and/or DANCE! You always feel better when you are dancing.

*This starts with me, with you, with all of us. We have to choose to be happy, to take actions that create joy in our lives. You can start by joining us at Stop Drop and Dance with Grace. Come Dancing with us and DJ Gavin Hardkiss at Love Won Another on Saturday Night at 19 Broadway. Better yet, Save the Date May 13th, 2017 we are having a Dance Party at the Log Cabin. Tickets are limited and $20. Start With You!

Slowing Down

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer

You don’t have to look very hard to see the signs that you need to slow down. For me it shows up physically first in the form of a sore low back or a twitch or swelling. Then my emotions scatter and I struggle to find my kind voice with myself and with others. It is quickly a lose-lose situation, followed by feelings of guilt and inadequacy.

Why after all these years do I need to be hit in the head by the signs, wouldn’t you think by now I could see them 50 feet away and prepare myself a little? Maybe I did see the signs, maybe I didn’t believe them or maybe I didn’t want to believe them. Either way, the signs were there.

What does it mean to slow down? For all of us it is different. Some need to discover Yin Yoga and find out what it is like to breathe in an uncomfortable position for 2 minutes. Some need to sweat, shake and stand on their hands for everything to get quiet and feel ok. Some need to meditate for 30 seconds, others for 30 minutes. In some senses, it is the same for all of us…one hour in the day to take care of ourselves.

It doesn’t really matter what you do, as long as what you do, is for you. Take a walk or make it a hike or even a run. Bike thru town on your cruiser or climb the mountain so you can fly down it appreciating your choice of hardtail or full suspension. Do 40 laps at the pool or 9 holes at the club. Find your core in TRX or unleash you inner demon in TKO. You can find your yoga practice on the mat or everywhere you go. It starts with you.

Slow Down. Figure out what that means for you and bring more of it into your life. Or bring less of it. You know what I mean.

It is crazy how life unfolds itself, all in its own timing.  You cannot always plan out the future and you definitely cannot predict the future.  All you can do is live your life and let the dots connect.

As a little girl, I remember setting up my stuffed animals on the bed and I would be the teacher.  I read stories to them, taught lessons, and I even made homework assignments for them to complete.

Somehow along the way I had a belief that being a businesswoman would be way flashier and make more money, so I pursued that route in college.  And for some reason I thought I would prove something by finishing college in 3 years, so I took all the classes I needed to graduate.  But then I started dating my husband that 3rd year in college and then realized, why rush to graduate?  I will be working the rest of my life… why not enjoy this college life for one more year?  So I stayed a 4th year and that was the best decision.

I ended up traveling abroad to Hong Kong for a semester, taking a bunch of random classes like Mandarin Chinese and Advanced Piano, and I also enrolled in Teacher Education classes where I was required to volunteer every week in a classroom.  I was reminded then of my true passion to become a teacher, so after college, I said goodbye to my Management Science degree and continued to graduate school to get my Elementary Education Credential and Masters in Education with an emphasis in Technology.

I taught Kindergarten and first grade for 9 years and to balance out the stresses of teaching a bunch of 5 year olds who often don’t listen, I also taught yoga and fitness classes to adults in the evenings.  I became a certified E-RYT Yoga Teacher, ACE Group Fitness Instructor, TRX Instructor, PiYo and TurboKick Instructor.  It was a great balance, and after I had my first child, I decided to take a leave from teaching public schools and be a part-time mom, part-time fitness and yoga teacher.

Fast forward 5 years later, and I am blessed to teach at the Bay Club Marin and am the Director of Operations and TRX at Marin Power Yoga.  In addition to the 15 classes I teach each week, I am so excited that this coming Monday, I will be leading my first 200 Hour Teacher Training program!!!  I definitely never imagined I would be where I am now, but somehow this is the perfect blend of my Education and Yoga/Fitness background.  Instead of stuffed animals and 5-year-olds, I get to teach adults who are passionate about yoga like me!  I am far from being an expert, but I am happy to be a guide in someone else’s journey.

Humbled… grateful… excited.  Happy 2016 everyone.
