A few weeks ago, I participated in a yoga class called “Seriously Zen” that was taught by yoga expert, Kathryn Budig. After this 50 minute class, I was transformed! I felt lighter and less stressed. I felt more open and the need to keep s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g, both physically and mentally! I reached out to Kathryn via email to thank her for lifting my spirit. She was kind and gracious to answer several questions that I included in my thank you note. For those of you who haven’t heard of Kathryn, she is an an international yoga teacher and writer who created Aim True Yoga and co-founded of Poses for Paws. She has been featured in Yoga Journal, Women’s Health, The New York Times, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal…and now she can even add OliveOyl.com to her extensive media list.
For the past several weeks, I have been talking to Marci Zaroff about yoga. Since this conversation, my yoga routine and philosophy toward living green and clean has blossomed like a spring flower. I have more energy, less stress and an overall sense of calm and promise about my future has taken root in my everyday life.
Without further delay, I would like to share the yoga pose that I have been practicing this week and share snippets from the glorious conversation I had with Marci.
A few weeks ago, I talked with Marci Zaroff, founder and President of Under the Canopy, about starting a yoga routine. An avid yoga practitioner, artist and passionate organic consumer, Marci followed up to see how was progressing in my yoga practice. “So far, so good,” I said. “But, I still have some starter questions.” As always, Marci was warm, gracious and generous in offering both her encouragement and advice.
It’s fairly well documented that I have been graced with the gift of elastic flexibility. I’ve been known to stretch myself to the limit…and then some! Once the ball dropped at midnight to ring in the start of 2013, I made a promise to myself that I was going to take better care of myself. I’ve heard about the many physical and emotional benefits of yoga, and I’ve decided to give it a whirl. Whenever I embark on something new, I throw myself into it head first. My approach to yoga will not be any different!
I reached out to Marci Zaroff, founder and President of Under the Canopy which is a leader in organic and sustainable fashions for women, children and the home. She is an avid yoga practitioner, artist and passionate organic consumer. In other words, she is a pretty big deal and she knows what she is talking about when it comes to living a green and healthy lifestyle.
