Hi everyone!! It occurred to me lastnight that some of you may not know about our Juice Box Yoga LAVENDER SCENTED CANDLES!! Want to take the refreshing and relaxing scent of your lavender hand towel home with you….? Now you can!!!
And….do you know about our Juice Box Yoga stickers?? Bumper, water bottle, note book….wherever you like to show your Juice Box pride!!
Come in and check out what else we have around the studio…see you soon, yogis xx
Now that it’s getting HOTter OUTside, the need for extra hydration is even more important…
Have you heard about Hydroflask? (http://www.hydroflask.com/) These bottles are AMAZING!! Seriously! We know it sounds a bit dramatic, but this bottle with change your life!! (We have heard more than a few students lately saying this!!). These bottles are double (triple? quadruple?) walled stainless steel and they are guaranteed to keep your cold water cold and your hot water (drink) hot…for HOURS!!!! Not only are the bottles amazing, but the company is pretty awesome also. This is from the website….
“…the first Hydro Flask, incorporating principles of vacuum insulation, safety (BPA-free), food grade stainless steel, a range of fun durable colors and a charitable arm called FivePercentBack.org to give a portion back to worthy causes.”
Yup, YOU can keep YOUR cold drink cold and YOUR hot drink hot…AND YOU get to GIVE BACK!!!
So, after all that, we only have a FEW hydroflasks left. We have large 40oz bottles and smaller 18oz ones (perfect for coffee or tea!)…change (and HYDRATE!) your life…one COLD (or hot!) sip at a time….
And…don’t worry if you didn’t get one this time…we will order more 😉
Have you ever been standing in line at Whole Foods and seen the pictures of people doing standing bow pulling pose on a mountain top, or camel pose on a snowboard, or tree pose with village children in Peru….?? Well, we want to know what YOUR yoga looks like out there, outside of the yoga room and out in the WORLD!
As the weather warms up and you are feeling inclined to get outside, take what you have learned IN the yoga room and let’s see how your yoga shows up OUT of the yoga room.
As many of you have experienced, yoga is everything. Yoga is not just the postures you do, but how you do them. Your yoga is not just the hour and a half you spend in the hot juicy room, but it’s also the 22 and a half hours you spend in your hot juicy LIFE!! Yoga is everything and everything is yoga! We want to see what your yoga looks like out in your life and how yoga shows up for you!!
Send us your photos, yogis. Email them, Facebook them, bring them into the studio!!! We want to see them…then we will let you know what the game is all about…
Spring is starting to SPRING up, yogis!! The sun has been shining, the air is starting to feel warmer and the days are getting longer and longer. Whew! In all truth, we got off pretty easy this winter, the weather wasn’t too bad and, of course, we had our beloved juice box to keep us HOT all season long!
So…it’s this time of year that people start to question their attendance for yoga through the spring and summer…so we thought we would just jot down a few things about your yoga practice throughout the seasons and the year and how your next season can be impacted based on what you do now!!
The sun comes out, the weather warms up and we all want to take off our winter layers and GET OUTSIDE!!! As it starts to get hotter and hotter and the outside temp is turning up, it can be hard to get motivated to go in the HOT yoga room…but in fact, this is the BEST time to maintain your practice! You worked hard all fall and winter to stretch out your sore, tight cold body…now is the time to keep up the flexibility and strength you built up over the months of your diligent practice and continue on the upward path! You want to get out there this summer and use your strong body, so make sure you also give your body the stretching and relaxation that it needs…not to mention the calm mind and the slew of mental benefits we all receive from the practice!
In the winter time, you come into the yoga room with sore tight COLD muscles. It takes several minutes to just start to thaw out and get the joints and muscles loosened enough to start to feel better. In the spring and summer, as the temperature OUTside is so much WARMER, you come into the yoga class already more loose and limber than before. You are already so much more warmed up to begin with, imagine what will be possible now!! And, of course, as we all have heard and all know for ourselves, everything we do in our yoga practice will help with EVERYTHING you do outside of the yoga room-all of your biking, swimming, running, hiking, driving, swinging, playing…etc…will benefit from your stretched out body and relaxed state of mind 😉
Our first yoga vacation to Troncones Bay was AMAZING!! We had SUCH a great and amazing time, we are so excited about the NEXT ONE!!! (more on that later…)
We had 5 yogis join us, to make a group of 8 for the week. Everything from our accomodation to our yoga classes was so wonderful, it was hard to leave! We practiced yoga outside, in the garden, with the palm trees to shade us from the morning sun and the sound of the ocean’s waves to guide our breath through the practice. Ahhh, heaven.
Practicing yoga outside was such a different experience from our usual juice box, and we all learned some amazing things about our practice through the week. There was something so honest about taking our practice from the bright lights and hot sweaty room that we are used to and into a more quiet, natural and in the end, a MORE self reflective place. The act of taking away all that we know, all our habits (even unknown to us) in the hot room, taking away the mirror and lighting the inner flame…or, maybe just enjoying being in nature ;). Everyone got something different, and of course, as always, everyone got exactly what she or he needed.
In addition to our trusty 26+2 practice, we did some partner stretching and synergy flying, as well as meditation, posture workshop, baby turtle release, surfing, eating, sunning, swimming, drinking fresh coconuts…..and the list goes on!! It’s very exciting for us as this has been something we’ve wanted to share for so long. So…now it’s back to the internet to find the NEXT adventure spot!! Keep your eyes and ears peeled around the studio for info…we are looking at dates for OCTOBER 2013.
There is still time (and space) for YOU to sign up for our first Yoga vacation in glorious MEXICO!! If you don’t already know, or haven’t already heard, Tanya and Ida are taking a group of yogis to Mexico to practice yoga by the beach, surf in some of the world’s BEST surfing spots, eat fresh food, soak up the sun, recharge and refresh in the tropical sunshine and sea salt and coconut scented air. Gosh that sounds amazing.
If you are sitting on the fence about it, please contact the studio or ida or tanyarose (@) yogajuicebox.com and maybe we can answer some questions for you…or come up with perhaps a shorter trip….who said FIVE days in Mexico is too short??? ha.
This could be an opportunity for you to have a new relationship with your yoga practice…we Bikram yogis are so used to our hot little juice box, but here we will practice our yoga outside, in the heat of MEXICO, with the sound and sight of the ocean…by including yoga as a part of your vacation, you will leave here (hopefully!) feeling energized and ready to go back to your fabulous life at home!
Go home feeling energized and renewed and like you can take on the world, not like you need a few days off to re-energize from your vacation!!
This weekend the US National Yoga championships is happening in NYC! Our very own teacher, Cameron, is there to represent Nevada!! Unfortunately, as I write this post, Cameron has already been on the stage (he did great!!)…however there are many other people still yet to compete. It’s just finishing with the Men’s division, and this afternoon will be the women’s division. Today is the semi finals, so the top ten finallists from today will continue on and demonstrate again tomorrow (this is what I will be watching!!). As well the youth division will be tomorrow (Sunday).
