Welcome to Yogi Sticks!

Do you know your Gomukasana from your Adho Mukha Svanasana? Is your Vrksasana all it can be? And how do you feel about Supta Baddha Konasana? Do you know what I'm even talking about?

Sometimes the Sanskrit - however beautiful it sounds - is not very helpful. So, to encourage my students to expand their yoga practice into their home, I sketch the poses we practice during class on a chart and add the Sanskrit and common name. Hopefully, this is a useful tool to help them along in their yogic journey. I also troll the internet, books, and journals to find interesting articles about yoga and the yogic lifestyle.

I had great intentions of posting the sketches from class Wednesday, but I seem to be having technical difficulties with the scanner (no blame can go to the software or computer - it is purely user error, I'm afraid). So, until I can have my IT team take a look (and he's currently out of the office playing softball) I'll have to just suggest some other ways to explore yoga and your quadriceps...
