We hope you've enjoyed the last days of the warmer rays here in Edmonton—what a spectacular summer it has been! As the sunshine slows and school begins, it's a great time to reflect on and give thanks for all of the good things warmer weather has brought—opportunities to break from routine, to take time away, to share extra laughs and love. And as we progress towards fall, for many of us it's back to school, or back to a more steady pace of life. That's why our Media Team this month is focusing on grounding—re-connecting with our roots, finding our calmly abiding centre within. We'll focus our Foundation Fridays on some poses that will help you find your steady seat, and share some tips and techniques to help if you feel like you're stuck with your head in the clouds and nothing on the ground beneath you.
In tune with our theme of grounding, today is also Day 1 of our #HappyHips Challenge on Instagram! Hips are an area of your body that are totally connected with your legs and feeling of being stable and connected to earth. By practicing each pose that we post daily on our Instagram, you'll not only explore new spaces within your asana practice, but you might notice you also feel a little more steady within yourself. Check it out, and don't forget to tag us @yogalifestudios when you participate!
