Pose of the Month: Compass Pose (Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana)

Author: myaizzolena / Date: 29-03-2016 / Tag: Compass pose, Parvrtta Surya Yantrasana, Yoga, Intuition, Full Circle Yoga

At first navigating through new ventures in life we may feel lost or unsure. We might externally seek a tool for direction and answers, like a compass.  However, yoga teaches us to tap into our intuition and hearts for guidance instead searching outside of ourselves for answers. As we navigate our way through the physical tension of a yoga pose we innately strengthen our internal focus to help guide our way through new adventures and challenges that life always has to offer.

Learning to Trust the Intuition Yoga Teaches Us by Gina Matranga

Author: myaizzolena / Date: 15-02-2016 / Tag: Intuition, Yoga, anxiety, Full Circle Yoga, Gina Martanga

For most of my life I’ve been a Type A people pleaser. My actions were easily dictated by the opinions, wants and needs of others, and I rarely paused to consider what role I really played in the unfolding of these events. I did have my own opinions, but I really tried to make them match up with my friends or those around me to perhaps make them feel more comfortable or validated. I wanted everyone to get along, I wanted everyone to be happy, and I definitely didn’t want to be the cause of someone else’s frustration.

Pose of the Month: Warrior 3 (Virabhadrasana 3)

Author: myaizzolena / Date: 27-01-2016 / Tag: Full Circle Yoga, Virabhadrasna 3, warrior 3, pose of the month

Virabhada is the warrior draped in tiger skins, wielding a thousand blades and incarnation of Shiva. Symbolically, it represents a warrior against the ego. Each time we practice a pose in yoga there is a symbolic resonance happening within us. We have the innate ability to tap into the warrior of the spirit in an instant. Warrior 3 is a balance pose with a fully extended body and a focus that reminds us that we are able to fully express ourselves extending beyond obstacles that life may present.

The Phoenix by Sophie Cummings

Author: myaizzolena / Date: 19-01-2016 / Tag: Yoga, Full Circle Yoga, healing, coping, yoga healing

Time is not the healer of everything.  Prior to yoga, I could have spent my whole life searching and never filling the gaping hole in my heart.  When I was 17, my mother died.  My world did it crumble; nothing happened – or at least I thought nothing happened.  My life continued.  I built a fortress around my heart so that I would never have to experience such insurmountable pain again.  What I did not know at the time was when you block out one emotion, you block out everything.  Autopilot took over and I was never fully present.  I was not invested in anything other than soccer.  Soccer w Read more about The Phoenix by Sophie Cummings

Yoga was my Refuge by Emily Karlicek

Author: myaizzolena / Date: 17-11-2015 / Tag: Full Circle Yoga, Yoga, healing, trauma yoga, refuge, home

Yoga is my home.  My mat is where I feel the most stillness.  I have been a mental health therapist for 10 years, where I have been a safe haven for others to feel their pain.  I have shared and continue to share their pain with me, as I currently provide mental health services to the Longmont community.   A couple of autumns ago, I felt a pain I have never experienced before. It shook me to my core, left me pale, exhausted, confused, dizzy, scared, and frozen. Read more about Yoga was my Refuge by Emily Karlicek
