101 Tenacious Gratitude 90 Min Level 2 Yoga Class

Leave me feedback! eyogaclass@gmail.com or leave me a message on SpeakPipe Come see me at the New Media Expo in January! Tenacious Gratitude Thoughts? I can tell you mine. Tenacious didn’t quite feel “right” with me. I felt that being tenacious was not something I aspired to be. It’s too rough. Too hard. Too pushy. Too manly. I imagined the quintessential football player, the one that just stampedes over the competition regardless of anything else, bulldozing through pain, through...

It’s episode 100 of Elsie’s Yoga Class! This is not a yoga asana class today, but my goodness what we have is serious yoga study and conversation. This is super special because it’s the 100th episode and also my 6th year podcasting!!! In order to celebrate I gathered two of my most influential teachers and we have incredible conversations about yoga and life. The kinds of things that are shared are the best kind of yoga you can learn and be exposed to. Listening will undoubtedly take...

I just wrote a post called When The World Doesn’t See You As You See Yourself, which was the basis for this episode. The execution of embodiment, which to me = action is what I feel in my humble opinion is a giant factor in creating lasting embedded change in our lives and something that most of us lack. We think a ton and don’t actually do anything. I know that I stay a lot in my head. I have the knowledge. I know what needs to be done. I am fired up and completely in, and yet for a huge...

Oh what a story do I have to tell in this episode! At least you know what’s it’s going to be all about looking at the artwork for this post. That image was taken very soon after I walked through my door after I got held up. I found both of my girls immersed in watching My Neighbor Totoro one of our family’s favorites. Such dichotomy. You can of course listen to me tell the story of the whole event in the class. There is a 5 minute intro and then the class begins with me telling the story...

When was the last time you invested in yourself? I’m not talking about buying something, whether it be a yoga class, a workshop or even a nice new outfit. I’m talking about taking some REAL time to be with yourself, to feel your body, to listen to what’s going on in your heart and in your head. When was the last time you did this right smack in the midst of holiday season? Particularly when you weren’t feeling your best….? Then this class is for you! Practice along and…. So get going...

Guess what I did??? Free Video Yoga Class is the House! This is my first full on video yoga class which includes my signature intro PLUS a cameo appearance of my girls Hunter and Mae! There is no theme. It's only 30 minutes. It's an intermediate level class, because I don't break things down to much and it keeps a pretty steady pace. I would LOVE your feedback on this format. I am still going to be publishing audio classes, so don't worry :) I may just sprinkle the video classes here...

How Are You…Really? How many times has someone asked you “how are you?” and you mindlessly say “I’m fine, thanks.” When you are not. When I say, you are not, I don’t mean that you just had someone you love die, or you just lost your home, or your job, or you just found our your beloved was cheating on you…I mean “you are not,” because you don’t actually know anymore. “I’m fine, thanks” is something we say countless times and most of those times, we don’t even think about it. Our mouths...

This yoga class is simple Nothing fancy. No crazy poses. In fact, there are very little poses. This is more of a practice of just doing THIS. One. Thing. It's more about dharana- one pointed concentration. It's about stopping doing all things at once (including quickly getting a yoga class in as part of your continued multitasking.) ;) Let me know what you think! This is a new format as the class was recorded at home, with no students, just you guys and me! Look below for the yoga...

Discover The Eve Of Your Breath FINALLY!!! The more I live my life, the more I recognize that the most important aspect of the practice of yoga is the breath. Every key insight either about me, a specific pose, the way my body functions or even my relationships has come through a growth in the breath. I remember two distinct times while practicing backbends that they unfolded themselves to me when I FINALLY breathed optimally while working deeper into the postures. I also remember my...

I've been at home A LOT lately. My body has gone through a pretty massive transformation since giving birth, as it should, since it facilitaded an entire new human being to come out! My goodness does that still keep me in awe. It floors me when I think of what this body is capable of. If something is magical, it's our bodies :) I'm also keenly aware that as magical and intuitive as it is it MUST be nurtured. I had my sacrum/si completely go out on me about 4 weeks postpartum. Thank God my...

I know there are some of you still in the midst of Winter. Maybe your winter has been going on for so long you're not sure how to deal with it or if you can deal with it. Winter, or at least the qualities of winter, the darkness in particular, that darkness that forces you to remain inward, to cover yourself, and to slow down is great in little bits but when it's prolonged it can get challenging. Some of you may be physically going through Winter, the season, while some of you may be going...

The theme for this class was inspired by one of my friends Hillary Rubin. She has this amazing post plus video, asking questions that needed to be asked at that moment....hmmmmm. Or at least I needed to ask these questions ;) It was all about RUNNING OUT OF GAS! Well, at least for me it was about running out of gas. It made me think about the various ways that we deal with running out of gas: whenWe are going to run out of gas. I fit into number 3. Before becoming a Mama, I fluctuated...

Hunter got sick and it totally made me think about immunity. I'm sure that those of you that read this blog and perhaps other content that is similar are aware that immunity is not just about bacteria and viruses being present in your body and all of a sudden you get sick. It's not just about the physical. It's all about the beautiful trifecta of mind, body and spirit. All of this affects the how your body reacts and doesn't react to pathogens that decide they want to wreck havok inside of...

This episode was absolutely inspired by one of you. I was asked basically how to practice yoga daily. This is something that I think about every day, that I meditate on, and continue to refine. I'm not going to describe my own process but tell you what it boils down to, at least for me: Meaning and Truth. If you don’t first and foremost ask yourself who you want to be in the world, what has meaning, what has value to you, and continue to refine the answer and deepen the questions again...

10/17/2010

Who Is The Bully? I've been doing a lot of meditation on worthlessness or the feeling of being unworthy. Often times this feeling arises from the way the world speaks to us, perhaps in the form of bullies around us, family members, peers, bosses, etc. but what has really become clear is that it's not the world that is the root of this feeling, but ourselves. The biggest bullies that we have in our world are not outside of ourselves but within ourselves. In this class I went back to one...

8/30/2010

25 minute meditation. These past few months I nearly got overwhelmed by anxiety. This hasn't happened to me in a LONG time. I lost control of my rational thought process and simply dove into a feeling that was suffocating and terrifying. I can't say that I was in any way comfortable. The only thing that pulled me out of it was my toddler Hunter. She forced me to get out of myself and engage her. The moment that I disconnected from her off I went into a very uncomfortable sense of...
