“That’s exactly how it is in yoga. The places where you have the most resistance are actually the places that are going to be the areas of the greatest liberation.” —Rodney Yee
What poses do you love to hate?
Or hate to love?
Or just hate altogether?
We all have them, those poses that end up being the bane of our practice. The ones we secretly groan about when your teachers cue them in.
For me, it's plié. I can't stand holding plié, and my two main teachers were dancers. They can hold it all day long, talk, chat, have philosophical conversations while I'm just over here dying.

For many of my students at the YMCA, one of those frustrating poses is side plank.
And that's my fault. I don't teach it a lot. So for the past 2 months we've been focusing heavily on building the strength required to feel confident in this challenging pose.
This class is the first in a series that I'm creating that will help you build up that same strength and confidence.
Modify if you want to, pause the video if you need to, and repeat this practice weekly while you work on your core, arm, and hip strength.
And, most importantly, find joy in the process.

One last thing before you go!
I am opening up my calendar for 4 new 1:1 clients this summer. This can be either in person if you live close by, or via zoom if you don't.
What you get: 1 hour of fully personalized instruction wherein we work together to achieve your goals.
Our meetings will be 1, 2, or 3 times per week for 3 months, depending upon your goals. This time frame is so that we have the opportunity to see the transformation that only occurs with dedication and perseverance. (Change does not happen overnight. 3 months is the minimum amount of time to begin to see changes in your body.)
Result: A stronger body, a more positive mindset, and a committed yoga practice; all of which lead to more energy, more joy, more confidence, better balance, better health, and better sleep.
