3 Ways to Improve Your Forward Fold

Come check out the YBC Yoga Forum, where we're sharing ideas with and asking questions of likeminded yoga people. It's a great little community, and we'd love to have you join!  Hamstrings are a tough spot for a lot of people, and forward folds, whether they're seated or standing, can be a source of frustration for many, which is why I wanted to offer three tips for improving the pose.

How to do Toe Stand

Over on the Yoga Forum, people are checking in from all over the world to chat about all things yoga related. I'd love to welcome you over there!  Welcome to Thursday, my friends - the week is almost over, and I may or may not be celebrating by writing this while simultaneously snacking on a sea salt chocolate bar.

Common Mistakes in Crow Pose

Common mistakes in bakasana For me, learning how to do crow pose was a pivotal moment in my personal yoga practice. All of the sudden, I felt like my practice had new dimensions and could go to new (literal) heights. It became less linear and the pose opened a door to something totally new. So when I teach the pose in class, I'm not surprised at the excitement I see in students.
