You Flow Girl! (And Gentlemen)

on May 31, 2017 1:33:20 PM By | Tina Day | 0 Comments | Yoga Community Events Yoga in the Park
When mentioning yoga, for many, a series of uncomfortable twisted poses (arsana) comes to mind, but yoga is much more than handstands and touching your feet to your head. Yoga is a 5,000-year-old Indian practice that connects the mind, body and breath through meditation. There are many different variations of yoga, including yoga flow, aerial yoga, hot yoga, yin yoga, hatha yoga, lyengar yoga, and the list goes on. While we won’t go into the details of each, the important thing to know is that yoga serves as a way to strengthen the mind and the body simultaneously, as they learn to move fluidly together.

Beating the Winter Blues- Yoga Style

on Nov 19, 2015 2:00:00 PM By | Jenna Morrison | 0 Comments | Yoga
As the days get shorter and the weather turns colder, we are all slowly realizing that we cannot escape the Alaskan winter any longer. Though we all like to say we are “Alaska Tough” and can handle the sometimes brutal conditions, the truth is that there are parts of those dark days that can get us feeling a little blue. We may be able to heat our homes, snuggle up under a mountain of blankets, and put on our down jackets, but sometimes it’s even harder to get our minds in gear. Instead of counting down the days until spring, it’s time to seek out ways to escape the winter blues.

Anchorage Yoga Instructor - Making Fitness Fun For All Ages

on Dec 1, 2014 6:37:00 PM By | Tresa De La Cruz | 0 Comments | Kids Youth Fitness Gym and Health Club Exercises Yoga
I have one of the best jobs at The Alaska Club – I get paid to play games, be silly, and have fun with kids, while also teaching them life skills like, concentration, focus, balance, physical fitness, breathing techniques and stress relief. If you haven’t guessed it already, I am a Youth Yoga instructor for kids ages 6 – 12. Yoga classes for kids are definitely not like yoga classes for adults (and I do teach both). While adult yoga classes tend to be more serious, inwardly focused, use Sanskrit names for poses and hold poses a long time, Youth Yoga is all about playing yoga games, moving to yoga songs, and doing fun yoga poses. The kids have such a good time; they will beg to come back every week for more.
