Homebodies Series

WORKOUT 03.23 + more videos w/ Ken!

It’s day seven of the Homebodies Series, and we’re still taking things day-by-day. With the current state of our world, some of us may have found ourselves with more time at home, yet some of us are working harder than ever to adapt, fill demands, or make ends meet. A lot has changed very fast, and it’s important to acknowledge that everyone is affected differently by the current situation we’re facing.

It’s up to us on how we choose to respond to the challenges at hand. It’s difficult times like these that build character and strength.

We have the opportunity to focus on action, not worry. We can work to be the best version of ourselves, and be proud of how we rose to the occasion and acted on the things that matter most.

Ultimately, we’re all juggling a lot of unknowns right now, and taking care of yourself has never been more critical. Here are a couple of fun videos with Ken along with another home workout from Sam to help you keep moving forward…

Finding Steadiness and Ease by Rachel G.
This past year has been a huge pivoting point in my life, one where I have done a lot of letting go, shifting of habits, relationships, and the ways in which I cope and utilize self-care (as opposed to self-indulgence) to navigate the ups and downs. In my practice I have really learned to find steadiness and ease, within myself as well as in my outer world. The essence of yoga is finding that balance point between Sthira (steadiness) and Sukha (ease). This applies to asana as well as to our mental and emotional worlds…  READ MORE
