πŸ’—πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈπŸ’« Teacher Spotlight πŸ’«πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈπŸ’—

Meet Parry Dale!

Parry started out as a beloved student at Easy Day, and it wasn't long before life turned her into one of our beloved teachers as well! Her approachable smile and peaceful demeanor puts you at ease as soon as you walk into her class. Her classes are equally approachable, offering options for all different levels of practitioners. If you've been intimidated to try a Vinyasa class, get your tush to one of Parry's classes that nervousness will wash away almost immediately!

πŸ’—πŸ˜We Love You, ParryπŸ˜πŸ’—

Get to know her a bit better:

Parry came to yoga following a car accident and subsequently various means of physical therapy and chiropractic interventions to address ongoing spinal pain. A good friend recommended Bikram yoga and she engaged in Bikram over about a year and a half before discovering vinyasa yoga. After her first vinyasa class, she knew she had found her yoga preference and never looked back.

Vinyasa has served as a therapeutic, creative, inspiring home base from which to grow a devoted practice. As a classroom teacher by day for now over two decades, little by little, yoga became an opening for a deposit in the self and an unspeakably rich opportunity for reflection. Coming to the mat at the end of the day felt like home.

Resolved never to teach yoga and perfectly content as a student, Parry did not plan to ever take teacher training. She believed teacher training could not make her love yoga any more than she already did. Confronted with an emotional and spiritual renaissance, she realized one day it was time to teach – after all, teaching is what she knows. How could she not bring one of her greatest passions to others as a voice of support for whatever their personal journeys may be as they step on their mats? Parry completed her teacher training at Easy Day Yoga and could not be more thrilled to practice in the community in which she teaches – yoga is a lifelong practice and we are all in this together.

Parry teaches Tuesday @ 6:15 pm and Sunday @ 9 am!! Come and practice with her!!

Happy almost Mother's Day to all of the wonderful moms out there! Join us this Sunday and bring your mom along for a free class. Or if you're a momma yourself, bring along one of the children and we'll treat them a free class.

Meet Diane Greene!

Diane started sharing her bright light with us at Easy Day back in January of 2015, and we couldn't be happier that she has been calling our studio hOMe ever since. She's a wealth of knowledge and always has a supportive ear and/or shoulder for a great hug and even a good cry. We couldn't imagine Easy Day without her!

In her own words:
"Easy Day is my 'go to' place to come hOMe to time and time again! What I love most about EDY is that EVERYbody is welcome there! The teachers modify classes for every level from beginner to advanced. EDY has created a safe and welcome place for everybody to feel at hOMe. It's my place to connect and restore."

πŸ’—β€οΈ We love you, Diane! β€οΈπŸ’—

Let's take a look at the Crown Chakra - Sahasrara. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"At its highest expression the crown chakra represents enlightenment, pure awareness, and an ability to escape from the endless cycles of birth and death from which most of us suffer. However, for us regular mortals it is also connected with inspiration and creativity, similar to the third eye chakra.

The consciousness of the crown chakra is beyond all duality, all grasping for temporal things like love, success, and so on. A person with an activated crown chakra can be described as glowing, literally. Life is lived fully aware in each moment, desiring nothing and appreciating every new moment and the experiences they bring. It's a state of consciousness wholly foreign to most of us, but to many Eastern traditions it represents the goal of human experience and is believed to be possible to achieve in a single lifetime."

Let's take a look at the Third Eye Chakra - Ajna. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"When the Ajna chakra is activated, it is believed to coincide with a point in the spiritual development of a person where duality is overcome. So the Ajna chakra governs spiritual awakening. Its key-word is illumination. Attachment to the transient world around us fades and a unified mental state emerges. In the traditional Hindu view, when the third eye is awakened, it is possible to quickly burn through past karma, detach from the illusory sufferings of the world, and find inner peace. Where an activated throat chakra indicates the achievement of a high level of self-purification, the third eye chakra's activation yields transcendence."

Let's take a look at the Throat Chakra - Vishuddha. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"The major association of the throat chakra is with speech, communication, and creative expression. When the throat chakra is clear and open, we are able to let things go, especially our own past choices for good or ill, and express our views in a healthy way. We learn our lessons and move on; there's no dwelling on the past, present, or future anxieties, and we've gained wisdom from life experiences. Our speech flows freely, we live in a state of healthy detachment, and this detachment makes its easier to experience powerful spirit dreams. The 'ether' associated with the throat chakra is akin to our astral today, and at nights it's believed that this etheric body leaves the body to dream."

Let's take a look at the Heart Chakra - Anahata. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"Anahata rules love, breath, balance, relationships, and unity. This chakra is all about the higher energies of love and compassion when in balance. It governs matters of romance and friendship and heart connection. When your heart chakra's needs are met, you feel loved, cared for, and you love yourself. The universal urge that we all have to love and be loved originates in the heart chakra."

You don’t want to miss this workshop!! Join us this Saturday 1-3 pm for two hours of sheer bliss!!

Let's take a look at the Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"Manipura governs your personal power, confidence, assertiveness, and will. This chakra is all about power. It empowers the rest of your body, and it relates to your right use of power and will. The solar plexus chakra creates your uniqueness and enables you to transform through your will and personal power. A bright and clear solar plexus chakra helps you wield your overall personal power in the world.

When in balance, this chakra emanates autonomy, self-esteem, confidence, and free will. It helps you be self-assured and independent in the world. It is meant to facilitate your meeting your own needs for validation and freedom. All people desire to feel sovereign and catalyzing to their own world. Because of these needs, it is a natural human urge to strengthen the solar plexus chakra."

Let's take a look at the Sacral Chakra - Svadhishthana. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"Svadhishthana governs pleasure, desire, sexuality, sensuality, and procreation. It is all about the sweetness of life and feeling good. This chakra enlivens your world experience by engaging your senses and emotions. This is a complicated, rich, and, when in balance, rewarding chakra. A healthy and vibrant sacral chakra will help you enjoy life to the fullest. It brings vitality through pleasure and enjoyment and can be a source of great joy.

When in balance, svadhishthana gives you the ability to navigate change and the polarities of life. It also resonates pleasure, movement, emotions, sexuality and nurturance. It helps you engage in the sensory experience of living and integrate that energy into your subtle bodies. The human urge to procreate and be close to a romantic partner is part of the dance of the sacral chakra."

Let's take a look at the Root Chakra - Muladhara. Below is a bit of what Amy Leigh and Chad Mercree say in their great book, A Little Bit of Chakras:

"Muladhara governs survival, security, and your walk in the world. This chakra is all about support. It's supports the rest of your physical body because it is at the base of the spine. It relates to how supported you feel in this world materially. A healthy and clear root chakra will bring vitality to your feet and legs. The energy flowing there will be strong and rich.

When in balance, muladhara resonates security, stillness and stability. It helps you feel safe in the world and sure that your needs will be met, especially your basic physical needs for sleep, food, water, sleep, clothing and material comforts. Because of our urge to be stable and secure in this world, we all see strength in the root chakra."

Chakra is a term that sometimes gets tossed around in Yoga classes, but seldom really explained. So we wanted to shed a bit of light on these energy centers so that they make a little more sense the next time you hear them mentioned.

Most Yogic traditions believe there are 7 main Chakras (though some believe in less, and some even more). They are located along the spinal column, starting at the base and running up to the crown of the head.

A Chakra is a vortex where both physical and psychological energy is generated, assimilated and transmuted. The entire system is a map of the human bio-computer, essentially a diagram of how and where the physical body and the psychological body intersect.

Stay tuned over the next 7 days to learn a bit about each Chakra, and maybe a bit about yourself along the way.

We know sometimes it's easier said than done. But today, we hope you can Be Happy πŸ’—

We're starting to get really excited for next weekend's workshop with the amazing duo, Ashley and Jim Cash of Woven Green. They'll be joining us Saturday, April 20th at 1pm for an inspiring and transformative 2 hour Sound Bath experience. Their energy is unbelievably calming and invigorating all at the same time, making this workshop one you definitely don't want to miss!
