Astanga, w/ extra variations from Vinyasa Krama incorporated in & the new fur babies

That was amazeballs. Total time = 1hr, 47m. It turns out that being a cat midwife is a lot of work! Theodora was extra vocal another night in a row, and woke me intermittently meowing. She got REALLY insistent at 5am, so I got up and first offered her kibble in the office (where she wanted to go instinctively b/c that’s normally where I feed both … Continue reading Astanga, w/ extra variations from Vinyasa Krama incorporated in & the new fur babies

Mass Building Bi’s and Tri’s 2

First time doing this workout is here. This is in the spirit of repeating workouts I like at least twice, since I’ve decided I want to spend less time planning & previewing. Did this WO entirely from the breakdown. Can’t believe I actually squeezed a decent WO out of myself. Not that I’m not lying down the rest of the day, but still… So… my … Continue reading Mass Building Bi’s and Tri’s 2

One thing that’s … Continue reading My shoulders were loving the Astanga today

Today’s abs WO & my previous identity as an Ashtangi

We joked about that fall 2012 Miami workshop liberating me, as I was already in the new phase process … Continue reading Today’s abs WO & my previous identity as an Ashtangi

Mish-mash, moderate to light WO

Time 1hr, 7min. Very moderate WO but it felt good, like a mildly envigorating tun-up.

Quick HIIT & some back bending

Decided I wanted to do a heart chakra focused workout today, which for me means mostly focused on yoga back bending, interval style. Figured out it’d take me about 40 / 45min and I didn’t want to exercise for more than about an hour. Therefore, I wanted a 20min warm-up. 20 Minute Total Body HIIT Fat Burn Jesse is really funny, lol. Video is 30/50. … Continue reading Quick HIIT & some back bending
