Olive Loves Yoga: Here Comes The Sun

Featured

There was a lot of chatter this weekend about the Supermoon that lit up the sky on Saturday night, August 9. I admit it was pretty incredible! Scientists refer to a Supermoon as a “perigee moon,” which occurs when the moon is at its closest point in its orbit around Earth. When this happens, the moon looks larger. The next Supermoon is taking place on September 10, 2014, so mark your calendars.

After all the attention being given to the moon, I started thinking that the sun must be feeling a little left out! So, I reached out to Angela Salveo, Trainer at Hearst Tower in New York City, co-owner of CrossFit Salus and go-to friend for all my health and fitness-related questions. She showed me a wonderful way to salute the sun, so it too can feel appreciated and loved while making me feel strong and supported.

Olive Strikes A Pose

One truth about yoga is this: Yoga looks different on every body. One version of a yoga pose is not better or more advanced than another. Often, yoga beginners worry about the picture of the pose. They want to do the pose “perfectly.” As with most things in life, this always isn’t possible.

One of the (many) benefits of yoga is when you allow yourself to find the ease in your body and mind, the poses will be a lot easier to do.

As a National Strength and Conditioning Association-certified personal trainer, Angela Salveo has taught a variety of group fitness classes, including spinning, boot camp and yoga. She offers some step-by-step instructions for several popular yoga poses.
