Yoga Shoulders

Let’s keep talking and yoga and you!  We’ve looked at the spine and the hips.  Next, we look at shoulders.  Shoulders are prone to injury.  Creating strong, stable, yet mobile shoulders helps to reduce your risk of injury. In yoga class, we once again move the shoulders in multiple directions.  We work with weight bearing and non-weight bearing postures to facilitate range of motion while also building stabilization strength and opening tight fascia and chronically contracted tissue....

WLC: Finishing Strong, Final Raffle & Post Measurements and WOD

 FINISH STRONG! For those of us heading into week 7 of an eight week Challenge, I want to pose a question that we can think on over the final 10 days and beyond the challenge:  how’s my attitude right now? Last week Pete wrote a great blog post on “Consistency” (make sure you read it if you haven’t already).  If you embrace what he says then I can almost guarantee that your attitude is where it needs to be to finish this challenge strong.  Finishing strong requires your m...

Consistency. (This post is for everybody, but especially for those doing the WLC)

Consistency.  It is the one independent variable that has the greatest impact on success, in my humble opinion.  In previous blog posts I have talked about the power of a made up mind.  That when you decide on something when times are good, that decision fuels you when things become difficult.  That made up mind is what keeps you from going off course when you maybe don’t know the way out of a situation. That made up mind IS consistency.  I remember when I started my insurance business, I had ju...

Just as with our adult CrossFit classes, this program will be primarily about teaching...
