Savasana – Deep Rest

Benefits of Shavasana:

1. Brings The Body To A Meditative State

The body relaxes and goes into a deep meditative state, which in turn helps repair the cells and tissues and releases stress.

2. Relaxes And Calms The Body

After a strenuous workout that involves stretching, twisting, contracting, and inverting of muscles, Shavasana allows your body to rest and regroup.

3. Reduces Blood Pressure And Anxiety

As your body relaxes and calms down, your blood pressure also drops, and this helps relax your heart.

4. Improves Concentration And Memory

The direct effect of meditation is focus and concentration. While you focus on each area of your body while you are in Shavasana, your mind automatically improves concentration and memory.

5. Increases Levels Of Energy

Shavasana is the fastest and safest way to gain instant energy. The 5 minute break gives your body an energy boost, and thereby, increases your productivity.

Member of the Week: Bee Tan

1) What is your full name?

Bee Khuan Tan

2) What was your favorite activity as a child?

Wow, this is difficult. I liked a LOT of things! Dancing, running track, swimming, playing ping pong, playing badminton, playing a crazy game called One-Leg that involved catching friends while hopping on one-leg.

3) What job did you have in high school?

Being part of a dance troup and getting paid to perform at all sorts of functions.

4) What is your most embarrassing memory?

Sneaking my boyfriend into my room, hiding him in my armoire while I ate dinner with my family, and having my mom find him when she was putting away my laundry while I was still at the dinner table.

5) What is the best vacation you have ever taken?

Going to Taiwan and Hong Kong with my mom before I left Malaysia for the United States. It was just the two of us and we both knew it would be special as I was probably leaving Malaysia for good.

6) What makes you laugh out loud?

When I’m slightly inebriated, I find everything hilarious! It is a good ab workout and kinda exhausting.

7) What accomplishments are you most proud of?

Having the best friends … I’m incredibly lucky to have wonderful friendships that have lasted 40 years plus. We are as close today as we were decades ago, maybe even closer because we know how special it is.

8) What advice would you give to your younger self?

Not to be in such a rush all the time … I still stack my day and am always rushing from one thing to the next but I am making progress.

9) What would you like people to remember about you?

I would like to be remembered as a badass … in a good way ☺.

10) Why do you practice at Marin Power Yoga?

At MPY, I have found acceptance and community plus many kindred spirits and one soul sister; it is where I can zone out and be peaceful in my own head while pushing myself physically.

Member of the Week: Jeff Hopkins


1. What is your full name? 
Jeff Hopkins

2. What was your favorite activity as a child?
Playing with the dog. I’m still obsessed. Those poor animals probably wished I’d given them a little peace.

3. What job did you have in high school?
I didn’t have one. Don’t tell my kids.

4. What is your most embarrassing memory?
One summer in college I did a work exchange in Belgium. We were put up in a boarding house attic during a brutally hot summer. The boarding house had a shower, but we weren’t allowed to use it. After a couple weeks, we smelled pretty ripe. The exchange coordinator took us in search of a showers at the local pool, YMCA, and health club, but no luck. Then she decided to start knocking on doors at random houses. She asked complete strangers if they would let these smelly Americans in to use their shower because we hadn’t bathed in weeks. I was the only student in the exchange group who spoke Dutch/Flemish so I experienced the humiliation in real time. A few of the choice replies included,
“I don’t know you. I don’t know them and they smell.” 
“Are you crazy?” 
“Why don’t you spray them with a garden hose?” 
“I’m going to call the police.” Our hygiene walk of shame went on for an hour and we still smelled at the end of it.

5. What is the best vacation you have ever taken?
I took a trip around the world for a year when I was 23. This was long before cell phones, online booking sites and google maps. It was the most exhilarating trip I’ll ever take and really helped shape who I’ve become.

6. What makes you laugh out loud?
Farts. It’s juvenile, I know. When I think of the times I’ve laughed the hardest, it’s been when someone let one rip during a moment of silence during yoga class. Or when you’re at party and you’re overcome by a ferocious stench, everyone pretends they don’t smell it as they struggle to breathe and carry on the conversation as if nothing had happened. Love that.

7. What accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’m very proud that my wife and I have raised compassionate, kind children that are a lot of fun to be around.

8. What advice would you give to your younger self?
Be more patient and go with the flow.

9. What would you like people to remember about you?
That I laughed a lot and told jokes – even if they aren’t funny.

10. Why do you practice at Marin Power Yoga?
It was the first place I called about yoga and the first yoga class I’d ever taken. It’s felt like home from the start.

Member of the Week: Heather Lenehan


1. What is your full name?
Heather Margaret Lenehan

2. What were your favorite activities as a child?
Making up dance routines, hanging out with my brother Scott in the summertime, making daisy chains and playing tag.

3. What job did you have in high school? 
I had a few jobs in high school – my first was working at a flower shop then I worked in the Nylons department at Macy’s and after that I worked at Sam Goody Music shop.

4. What is your most embarrassing memory? 
I don’t have just one..

5. What is the best vacation you have ever taken? 
I traveled around Europe and eastern Europe for 3 months in my early twenties with my best friend. We went to 15 countries. The memories are priceless. It helped me to step outside my everyday life and re-assess how I wanted to move forward. It was truly food for my soul.

6. What makes you laugh out loud? 
I can’t really narrow this down to just one thing. I laugh out loud often and I’d say my family and our sense of humour is always the best laugh.

7. What accomplishments are you most proud of? 
I went through a pretty substantial weight loss in my early twenties after I came home from my trip to Europe. I lost in total 145 lbs over 1.5 years through eating better and exercise. My determination and will power were so concentrated on making this life change that I couldn’t see any other choice but to do this for myself. It completely changed my life in so many ways. It will be 15 years this year that I made this happen and I am very thankful everyday for giving myself a new lease on life.

8. What advice would you give to your younger self? 
To be kind and gentle with myself and procrastination is the devil in disguise 😊😊

9. What would you like people to remember about you? 
If nothing else, I was always honest, a wee bit sassy and loved a good laugh.

10. Why do you practice at Marin Power Yoga? 
I practice at MPY because I enjoy the classes, the MPY community and the community involvement.
