AUTUMN RESOLUTION

YOGA

 I am starting September 10th; and not just any yoga...










Anti-Gravity Aerial Yoga! at Cool Hot Yoga in Cresskill, NJ.


This unique fusion technique created by Christopher Harris is revolutionary in relieving compressed joints and aligning the body from head to toe using the AntiGravity® Hammock. This soft trapeze  supports you while  you master simple inversions and  progress to more advanced poses.
AntiGravity® Yoga is a fitness regimen designed to increase  overall health and physical agility while having fun and creating healthful beauty.
For me, what jumps out in this sentence is "while having fun".  As a physical therapist I tell my patients who are bored with their exercise to think of what they enjoyed doing as a child. Chances are, this is something they will still love to do today. I loved riding my bicycle and still do today. Who didn't love the freedom and weightless feeling of a swing? I can't wait to feel weightless in the AntiGravity® Hammock!




A little history...AntiGravity® is an acrobatic aerial performance troupe whose daily workout utilizes the AntiGravity® Hammock.  So, this technique was originally created for professional athletes and gymnasts and has been modified and perfected for the everyday athlete. 

It is a workout with components borrowed from dance, Pilates and calisthenics, with a focus on realigning you through decompression in the absence of gravity's pull on your joints. AntiGravity® Yoga works to manipulate physics while you relax, breathe, and enjoy.

I wish you could all come with me to Cool Hot Yoga!  If you live in Bergen or Rockland County, you should try.  They are on  Facebook too.


The physical therapist in me cannot resist these benefits (with the added level of fun!)

Recycled Silver, Fair Trade Ruby - Hamsa Modern Heirloom Pendant
I have been busy in the studio this Summer. While on topic, I will show you a few of my Yoga-inspired classic pieces and my new silk wrap bracelets for Fall! I am so excited about them! 


They are made with 100% recycled silver, like all of my artisan pieces, and 70" of luxurious hand-dyed silk ribbon to wrap 'round and 'round your wrist.







The Star toggle has a hand inscribed message on the back reminding you  to "shine" everyday. For me this means that everyday is another chance to reach my fullest potential. It is a simple word that can be loaded with meaning for its wearer.



And some of my classic Faded Lotus favorites:

 
This is the back of the reversible pendant below.



I love a captive audience!



To me, Autumn feels like a more natural time to make (and keep) resolutions than New Years. It seems more organic to change as the season changes. Are you making any resolutions?   I will let you know how my Anti Gravity adventure is going! I hope you all have a wonderful labor-less Labor Day weekend.

Thank you for reading,
