  • Resolve to Unwind your IT Bands

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on August 27, 2014

    Resolve to Unwind Your IT Band with Yoga What is the IT Band anyway? The IT Band, or more precisely Iliotibial Band, is a large sheath of connective tissue (fascia) that connects the hip bone to the knee. Fascia is a fibrous connective tissue that literally holds our muscles together.  What goes wrong? The repetitive […]

  • Theme Three: Come From “I am Ready Now”

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on August 16, 2014

    I have been intermittently blogging about the Three Themes of Baptiste Yoga. The first theme is “Be a Yes”. The second is “Give up What You Must” and the final theme invites each and every one of us to come from “I am Ready Now”. To me this is crucial in my journey as a […]

  • Give Up What You Must – Theme #2

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on July 29, 2014

    Theme Number Two of Baptiste Yoga is Give Up What you Must and it speaks to me in so so many ways. Here is just one thing that I resolve to give up. Won’t you join me in identifying something you’d like to give up? Maybe there is something bugging you. Something you don’t even […]

  • A Bit More on Being a Yes

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on July 23, 2014

    One of the themes of Baptiste Yoga is “Be a Yes”. It means much more that being present but rather, being present to people, things, actions and situations. It is NOT about saying yes to anything and everything that comes your way. In fact, saying yes is the antithesis of what Being a Yes is […]

  • Are you Fixed or Growing?

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on June 24, 2014

    Lately I’ve been reading about fixed vs. growth mindsets (see Carol Dweck’s work referenced here). What Dweck found was that high performance is not born in us, but ability to perform at high levels is. And if we are groomed to embrace that we can achieve great things, our performance will excel and continue to […]

  • Deep Dive: Crow (Bakasana)

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on June 18, 2014

    I have been playing with crow recently. It is always fun to come back to poses that you feel like you have mastered and find new and better ways to get into them. During this process of learning a bit more about doing and teaching crow, I discovered that I had only come part way […]

  • Want a more flexible, stronger, leaner you?

    By Julie | In Blog, MPY | on June 7, 2014

    Try our yoga one time and you will be amazed. Most students set foot in the studio for the first time expecting a good stretch and maybe a good sweaty workout. What they get is so much more. One class is enough to realize that the flowing movements and focused calm not only stretch and […]

  • The Run @Katy 80 – The Rest of The Story

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on June 3, 2014

    On the day of the run, I got up around 3:45 am to be sure I had enough caffeine in me to function. I wanted to meditate, which is a usual part of my mornings, but as soon as I got up, both dogs and my mother-in-law, who has been staying with us, got up […]

  • 40-mile run: I hate logistics

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on June 2, 2014

    It all started in Hawaii. At the end of February I was asked to assist at a week-long Baptiste teacher training on the big Island. There, I had the fortunate pleasure of meeting Dan Nevins, a double-amputee who now works for the Wounded Warrior Project. In 2004, Nevins was injured by an improvised explosive device […]

  • How Yoga Benefits Athletes and EVERY Body

    By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on May 2, 2014

    What is Yoga While many think of the physical “stretching exercises” as a definition of yoga, the practice goes far beyond developing body flexibility. The actual word “yoga” means “a union” or a joining together, and according to ancient texts, it means the quieting of the changing states of mind. In  practicing yoga, we join […]
