The Aurora Yoga Center walked in the 4th of July parade downtown Aurora and it was a good time! We handed out class schedule postcards with glow-sticks attached. We wore AYC logo t-shirts and carried a big American flag. We danced & smiled & waved!
It’s that slippery time of year, when each time we leave the house we risk slipping on the ice and having a fall. We may not have as much snow or the subzero temps like last year, however it’s still icy out there!
One thing you can do everyday to help your balance is simply stand on one foot. You can stand on one foot at a time while brushing your teeth each morning to make it a part of your routine. Consistently working on your balance is going to help you tremendously as you navigate the slick sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways.
A great one to start with is Vrksasana or Tree Pose. Standing on one leg and placing the opposite foot along the inner ankle, calf, or thigh of the standing leg.
See you at the studio and stay standing!

Happy 2014! Welcome to Aurora Yoga Center’s new blog! We are hoping to share helpful & healthful information, stories about AYC students & teachers, photos, videos. All in an effort to bring awareness and inspiration for a healthier life style. We all have things we like and don’t like about ourselves… it’s easy to get caught in a negative cycle of wishing we were not so out of shape, not so heavy, not so stiff and sore, etc.
You can start by focusing less on weight and fitness and more on how you feel. Your weight will fluctuate with the seasons and other factors – but what can you do to feel better, less achey, when you move around.
Here’s a tip for starting 2014 on the right foot: spread your toes! That’s it. 20 times a day, preferably with your shoes off… spread those piggies apart. Spread toes and hold open for 5 seconds.
Please join us for class at the Aurora Yoga Center. All are welcome! – we come in all shapes, sizes, & ages. The studio is fully stocked with mats and props, you just have to bring yourself in comfortable clothing & preferably on an empty stomach.
Hope to see you soon at the AYC!
Peace & Love,
Lisa & Jeff Manning
