Today we are focusing on a balancing pose called Half Moon. We are using the wall as it keeps us honest. Keep reading for key alignment tips!

1. Make sure the foot placed on the wall is hip level and not any higher than that. Actively push the foot into the wall.

2. Unlike Warrior 3 where the hips are squared, in Half Moon we want the hips stacked open.

3. Lift both kneecaps towards your quadriceps

4. If you're just learning the pose, or are less flexible, place a block underneath the bottom hand. Remember that the block has three levels so use the one that is most appropriate.

5. The foundation and stability of this pose is coming from the big toe that is on the mat. Remember to push it down firmly or lift up all of your toes.

6. Top and bottom hands should be in one nice line. To help achieve this and open the chest, pull the shoulder blades together.

7. You can test your foundation by picking up the bottom hand and see if and where you collapse.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the human experience and perhaps where we have taken a wrong turn. When did life become having our eyes glued to our phones writing #blessed but forgetting to actually immerse ourselves in the experience?

June Is just a few days away reminding us that we are six months into 2018. Often, this realization can make me panic feeling like I haven’t accomplished everything that I set out to do. This can send me spiraling down the dark black hole where I question my whole existence. This year I decided to notice what is right first. I hope what you read below will help you to realize the same.

I recently went to Portland to see my family and in particular all my nieces and nephews who vary in age, from the youngest currently in the belly to the oldest being 6. They are the cutest little beings and when we are all together sharing a meal, I like to call it controlled chaos. What I hear the most when the kids start to whine and cry leading to bigger fits, is my sisters’ asking them to “identify their needs” by saying, “Use your words.”

Prasarita Padottanasana C is just a fancy way of saying "Wide Leg Forward Fold" with an added shoulder stretch.

STEP 1. Facing the long way on your mat, take a wide stance. Make sure your feet are parallel to one another.

STEP 2. Press down through the inside arch of the foot.

STEP 3. Lift your knee caps to your quads.

STEP 4. Engage your glutes and pull your navel to your spine.

STEP 5. Interlace the hands behind you or bring them to your hips.

STEP 6. Lift your chest up on an inhale and fold forward on an exhale.

FORWARD being the key word.

STEP 7. Bring the hands to the floor or on blocks if the floor is not accessible. Yogis with tight hamstrings, consider bending your knees.

STEP 8. If you chose to interlace the hands and the head touches the floor with ease, move the head further back and work on getting the hands to touch the floor.

STEP 9. To come out of the pose, lift half way up on an inhale, making sure the lower half of your body is resembling cat pose. On an exhale, place your hands on your hips making sure the elbows are facing the ceiling. Stand up the rest of the way.

STEP 10. For those doing Prasarita Padottanasana C, root your feet down and rise up keeping the hands interlaced the whole time.

After you learn Triangle Pose in Yoga than you are ready for Side Angle Pose. The back leg stays in Triangle and the front leg bends into the same angle as Warrior 2. Watch the video to learn the angles!

Life never feels right when we are constantly running around always on the go. Always in a Yang state of mind. You eventually have to find a balance or the Universe will force you into one. Same goes for the practice. It is incomplete unless you are practicing both Yin and Yang forms. ☯️🙏
