Thanks for stopping by!!


 If you are new to this blog, I mostly post information here on my weekly classes, workshops, class cancellations, and sometimes links to my latest essays on my OTHER blog (see link below).

As you may have noticed (or even attended the class), I have been teaching a workshop that focuses on shoulder health. Since this is such a broad AND important topic, I hope that you will consider attending one of my weekly classes. 

For the next several months, we will be spending more time getting to know the shoulders with lots of stretches and strengthening exercises. Since I have tight shoulders and you probably do, too, I hope to see you soon in class.

For those that didn't attend the shoulder health classes and would like to purchase some of the Yoga Therapy Balls, please email me. (FYI: The ones that everyone received at the PBPN class yesterday are a slightly larger size than the ones I have for sale.) Please email me at least a day before class just to ensure that I see the email.

I hope to see you on the mat!

Can you tell I am excited about this workshop???

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you are able to enjoy the cooler temperatures this weekend! We all needed a break from the relentless heat.

As you can see, I will be teaching a shoulder health workshop this fall. For those that attended my "Healthy Feet for a Healthier You" workshop over a year ago, this workshop will have a similar approach. 

Essentially, there will be a power-point presentation, exercises with and without the Yoga Therapy Balls, and LOTS of information on healthy movements for your shoulders. I will go over basic alignment cues so that we have a neutral starting point. Everyone will work within their natural range-of-motion, so this class is great for almost everyone.

That said, if you have a chronic problem, frozen shoulder, or another issue that you are seeing a doctor about PLEASE talk to your doctor before attending this class. 

I am NOT a physical therapist. I AM someone who is passionate about learning how to stay healthy and strong for the rest of my life. I would love to share with you what I have learned from many anatomists, physical therapists, bio-mechanists, and other researchers on overall body health.

I hope you will join me on this quest for a healthier life through healthy movements.

See you soon!!

FaceBook Break

She may be hard to see 
in this dark photo 
but this is our newest addition to the farm. 
Cats really do understand 
the power of the nap!

If you are connected to my
"Yoga with Cat McMahon"
facebook page,
you may have noticed that I am
no longer on that social media platform.
I am taking the summer off from that
media, and I have been
consciously watching where I spend my
time with regards to the internets.

I am going to at least take the summer off
and then reassess my relationship to
social medias. There is so much to do in
this short life that we are blessed to have, 
and I want to make the most of it.

All my classes are continuing 
throughout the summmer....
so I hope to see you on the mat!!

Ayurveda, Yoga's sister science

Happy Mother's Day
weekend, everybody!!!
I hope you are all able to enjoy the last few days, 
which have been gloriously lovely.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am putting together some information about the body constitutions, 
also known as the "Doshas." I will be bringing in (hopefully next week) a Dosha Test for everyone to take plus a foods list which will suggest foods that are good for your Dosha.

Yay!!! I love this nerdy stuff. You will learn a lot in a short time and I hope it is fun and informative for you. 

See you on the mat.

A Great Yoga Prop Deal

 I was just looking at Yoga props and came across this AMAZING deal with Marg's business, Yoga Mart. I do not have the bolster but have used them when I taught at the Yoga Center of Lawrence. The bolster will smash down a little bit with use, which is actually very nice. 

I am not receiving anything (monetary or otherwise) for posting this link, I just like to support small businesses AND this is an amazing deal. The link below should take you to that page.
