I find the use of the phrase “heart openers” instead of “backbends” to be so beautiful, and well, heart-warming. This family of yoga poses help you open and balance the heart chakra, as well as relieve tension in the body and blocked emotions. Let’s be honest, all of us on this planet living through a global pandemic together are definitely carrying some tension, as well as both physical and emotional stress. But we can’t let these stressful feelings cut us off from the beauty of life and the joy of love and human connection.
"The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart." ~Buddha
Today would have been Tao Porchon-Lynch's 102nd birthday! In case you are not sure who she is, Tao was the oldest and coolest yoga teacher in the world. Her energy, smile and lively spirit were contagious and she left a wonderful impression on her students and anyone that crossed her path.
It is fasting time for us at Shakti Warrior, and our tribe is getting ready for a really cool and effective blood purification fast. So, we thought we would share it with you so you can join us!
This fast is one of the first ones I ever did and one of my favorites. Not only because it is only 3 days, but because it is a blood purification fast, and it is super effective.
