#chillasanahhh

about #chillasanahhh style of yoga:  yoga asanas, in general, can provide the perfect accessory work to complement weightlifting, running and hiking.

#chillasanahh focuses on the poses that can specifically give your body space and time to recover, open, and stretch while allowing *you* –>the driver of said body<– to breathe deeeeeeeply, reflect and engage your rest & digest response (aka your parasympathetic nervous system (pns)).

we also utilize pranayama (aka breathing exercises) to focus our mind, prepare us for breath-to-movement work, help us move from beta to alpha brain state and more, depending on the specific exercise.

in addition to yoga poses, #chillasanahhh style yoga incorporates stretching, smashing, and rolling your various muscle groups hydrates the supporting fascia, allowing more fluid support and movement of your muscular architecture. (this is mucho important for mobility, all types of movement and feelin’ fine in the spine).

it’s such a gift when you get an hour or more for a full yoga class. AND, you can also engage your breath and body throughout the day at the office, as a morning wake-up or to help you prepare for sleep.   i hope these #chillasanahhh poses give you the information and motivation to get movin’.

i’ll update this page with my favorite recovery poses. you can also check them out on IG under #chillasanahhh. you can pick a single pose to try or group them together based on  your body’s need and time allowed.

namaste, my friends!
