Lotus Peacock Pose Whirlpool State Park Niagara Falls

Padmamayurasana AKA Lotus Peacock Pose is a great posture for strengthening abs, back, arms, and wrists. Develops balance, flexibility, strength, and confidence. The Lotus portion of the pose involves the crossing and interlocking of the legs and Peacock is the balancing of the body with the arms.

Crow Pose at Ion Yoga Niagara Falls

Here we have Justin of Healthy Rabbit rockin a nice and high Kakasana / Crow Pose with as he is moving towards Bakasana / Crane Pose. Crane is almost exactly the same as crow except the arms are completely straight without a bend in the elbows. With the lift that Justin has I can already see him pressing into handstand.

This was during our “ADVANCE YOUR PRACTICE WORKSOP” I instruct every Sat morning at Ion yoga in Niagara Falls. This is a really fun class designed for anyone in good health and has an adventurous spirit. Instructors are especially welcome so if you’re wanting to advance your practice with arm balances, inversions, and powerful transitional flows, make sure to join us!

Healthy Rabbit serves deliciously healthy food, goodies, and Yoga too in Brantford Ontario, CA so if you happen to be in the area be sure to check them out! Justin’s website: Healthy Rabbit

Eka Pada Koundinyasana 1

eka pada koundinasana 1

Clearwater Beach the morning after spending a wonderful evening in a penthouse suit over-looking the gulf celebrating my 58th birthday with my beautiful wife Daniela, who also took this picture btw. This posture is Eka Pada Koundinyasana 1 or One Leg Side Crow, which as you might imagine is often entered into by transitioning from Side Crow (Parsva Bakasana). EPK1 is a great pose to test flexibility, strength, and balance.

Virabhadrasana with Canisius College Griffins Baseball


I’ve been very fortunate instructing Yoga with the Canisius College Pitching Staff going into our 2nd year together. Coach Mike McRae is very successful and highly competitive which is clearly demonstrated by his forward thinking and inclusion of yoga for the team. In this shot we are working on Virabhadrasana II, AKA Warrior 2, which is a powerful posture that requires balance and concentration for both the mind and entire body.

I really enjoy working with the guys as they are a great bunch who take their sport and their yoga seriously. We work mostly on flexibility, balance, stress-relief, breath, mindfulness, and coordination but not so much on strength as they get plenty of that with their regular training.
