I know, its been a long time since my last yoga video. I had plans to post one in December, but the holidays kind of exploded in our apartment and there was no space. So I took the opportunity of the big beautiful space at the Brooklyn Zen Center to film my next how to video before my class last month.                           And then I completely forgot about it.                  Until today!

It’s a lot of build up (and even though we got a camcorder from Christmas, the production values aren’t really any higher on this video). But I hope you’ll learn a little something from this video explaining  chair pose (Utkatasana). One thing I forgot to mention is that the weight should be in your heels in this pose, and you should as deeply as you can without compromising the posture.

Here it is, if there is a topic you’d like to see for my next video, or if you have any questions, I’d love to hear them!

It’s been a over a month, but I recorded my next “Yoga Explained” video. This video covers tree pose (or Vrksasana) and variations for beginners through advanced. One thing that I touched on in the video that’s important to remember is that you want to keep your hips even (which is why I suggest starting with your hands on your hips), a lot of times you can get your foot to your inner thigh but your hip will rise up on that side (you can see it happening to me in the video), so you want to work on keeping your hips even, which may mean lowering your foot.
