72 | Hypermobility Alert

4/17/2019
More
Today’s solo episode is all about how to use core stability when you are hypermobile. Hypermobile people may fill a small category, but they will actually suffer more injuries in yoga due to their bigger ranges of motion within their movement practices. Being bendy in yoga is beautiful, just as any practice is, but without proper attention and care, those with hypermobility can suffer great injury.

69 | Don’t Be A Stagnant Pond

4/10/2019
More
Today’s episode is all about movement. Surprise! I’m using the concept of stagnant waters to really show you that it teaches us about our own body. As you know, water that has been sitting for awhile can begin to not smell well, and even begin to grow things in it– this is very much like our own body. Over 70% of our body is water, and you can see how that shows stagnancy is something we can have within us as well. To learn more, visit: movementbylara.com Resources: Rebounder...

66 | Beginner’s Mind

4/3/2019
More
Today’s podcast is all about embracing the beginner’s mind without always labeling ourselves as beginners. In Zen Buddhism, the beginner’s mind is thought of as something we should aspire and practice to have. It’s time we stop looking at being a beginner as something we are ashamed of, and see it more as an opportunity!

4/1/2019
More
Today’s podcast was inspired by a recent mistake that I made while on the road with my daughter, looking at colleges. I made a mistake when I put gas in our car, I accidently filled it up with diesel fuel instead of regular. Sure, it made me feel silly, but rather than get down on myself, I looked for the lesson.
