This week I am in Barcelona, Spain competing in Life Fitness' Global Personal Trainers to Watch competition.
Since I am in the learning phase of my yoga training, yoga is always on my brain. Being in Spain made no difference. Thus, in the wee hours of the morning, jet-legged and all, I was up writing a yoga sequence that I could do on the Life Fitness Synrgy BlueSky.
Here is what I came up with!
Monkey Bar (Long)
Dip/Leg Raise Station
Traverse Bar (Long)
Cargo Net (Long)
Having a chance to "play" on a new piece of equipment is always fun for me. This event was an experience of a lifetime and my yoga teacher in training came along for the ride too!
You’d think I’d have oodles of time to do yoga on vacation.
Well, that was not the case for this summer vacation. I won’t bore you with the details but the only yoga thing I could do while on vacation was one restorative pose.
I really needed a restorative pose!
Sitting in a car for many hours and constantly twisting around to face two carseats (okay, two kids), was pretty darn hard on my back…
My answer was…
Legs up the wall (Viparita Karani)!
The morning after we arrived home from our journey, I settled in to the pose as the kids wondered around their rooms that they missed. I’m not sure how long I stayed in the pose until my littlest saw the opportunity to jump on my stomach. Nonetheless, I had my one sample of yoga during the week.
And thank goodness for it!
I really enjoy Adriene’s take on legs up the wall so take it for a five minute spin.
Circulation is back and yoga will be too,

I've practiced yoga since I was a pre-teen and have always found it to keep me centered. I will be a teacher one day and this is my journey to discover teaching and practice.
