Why Cycle? I used to hate it.
I used to hate spinning classes.
There I have said it.
The music was too loud.
The mirrors were too accusing.
The competitive spirit was too much.
The microphones were scratchy and irritating.
Now I love spin class because we do yoga afterwards and final relaxation.
I love the music because it is different and just the right volume that allows conversation and friendship to blossom.
I love the windows we look out of onto the big back yard with horses in neighboring yards to look at, the dogs playing tug of war, and the beautiful green grass.
I love the fact that mirrors are only in the restroom and hallway. I am not critiquing my appearance.
I love the fact that there is no microphone. I love the fact that I am pushing myself into cardio then stretching and relaxing afterwards.
I love spinning class. I enjoy the sweating and cardio. I don't even mind the saddle any more. Picture from the bike.

Who am I? This is often a question that we ask ourselves in meditation. I can honestly say I am passionate about yoga. It makes such a difference in my own life, and I see it begin to change other people's lives as well. Meditation time along with the movement of the yoga asanas or postures have allowed me to look deep within myself to find the calm and tranquil state that I have always longed for in my life. Sometimes in our world the question is what do I do? I can say that I have been a human "do-er" for more years than I can count. Now, I am learning through yoga, to become a human "be-ing" instead.
Join us on August 4th, 2012, for an exciting time of movement and meditation in our mini-workshop held at Tranquility Yoga in Owasso from 1:30 - 3:30. The cost is $30.00, and the opportunity to change your life is amazing! More workshops are planned for September 29, October 13…
The core components of yoga involve poses, also called postures and breathing. Weight training involves lifting either free weights, such as dumbbells, weights on a machine or--just like in yoga---your own body weight. You can combine the virtues of both yoga's flowing postures and weight training's muscle-sculpting moves. "Do not feel like you need to exclude one or the other," note the founders of the My Yoga Online website.
Yoga and weight training provide somewhat overlapping benefits. Yoga's health benefits include increased fitness, stress reduction, weight loss and management of chronic conditions, such as pain, anxiety, depression and sleep problems, according to the Mayo Clinic. Weight training, the website notes, results in toned muscles and overall physique improvement, reverses age-related muscle loss, increases bone density, maintains joint flexibility and assists weight management. www.livestrong.com

Many people struggle with pain in their lumbar spine. I gave classes back in December for arthritic pain. Here is an excerpt from a private training for arthritis in the lower back. I hope that it will be beneficial to all who struggle with this issue.
One key factor in preventing strain in the lumbar spine is to maintain its natural degree of curvature. Too much or too little with excessive lordosis or flat lower back can be a precondition for arthritis and poor movement patterns resulting in pain. Normal curvature is maintained by balancing the two actions of moving the top of the thighs back, which arches the lower spine, and then pulling the tailbone down. General tips for yoga include the following when dealing with arthritis and lower back discomfort: • In forward folding, remember to bend at the hips not at the waist. Bring the top of your sacrum forward. Tightness in the hamstrings may make this challenging, but soften the knees. • During twisting movements, stabilize the…
