It is with unbridled glee that I would like to announce two new features to our site. First, we decided to update our logo so as to better represent the style of yoga that we offer. Check it out at the top of this newsletter — doesn’t it seem to convey alignment, groundedness, expansiveness, and freedom? And isn’t the play button motif nifty? We thought so too! Second, we have honored the feedback that many of you have given requesting more direction in your practice, and we created a new function called “Programs.” Log in and you’ll see it both as a toolbar tab at the top and to the right of our latest releases. Our first three programs were born out of themes that are quite popular with you, our subscribers: Core, Workplace Wellness, and Travelers. The Core program introduces key actions for activating core stability, and then it provides detailed instruction on select poses that are essential for developing core strength. The next several videos will progressively challenge you to intensify your focus and to maintain core integrity. The program concludes with two cool down videos that will help you release excess tension in your gut and lower back so that you can relax back into your center. Try working on this program over a two week span, and let us know how it has raised your awareness and enhanced the quality of your life.
Does that sound too intense? No problem. Spend a couple of weeks going through the Workplace Wellness program and you’ll learn tips and techniques for staying balanced throughout your work day. Not interested in weaving yoga into work? No problem. Go through our Travelers program and you’ll have cultivated a new habit of energizing your body while quieting your mind in a mere 20-30 minutes per day. I know that you will savor the fruits of a more sustained practice now that we’ve eliminated some of the directional guesswork for you. Hope you enjoy!
