Zombies and Yoga


Posted By on Aug 26, 2012 in O2 Yoga Blog |

Just did my first practice on board our boat on our trip to Maine. We are rafted up(that’s sailing lingo for tied together) with two other boats, our friends Kate, Justin, and Parish, and Garth and Maya. We have known each other for years.

Why So Particular?


Posted By on Jun 16, 2012 in O2 Yoga Blog | 1 comment

We, at O2 Yoga, are known for being pretty particular about certain things like alignment of feet, knees, wrists and shoulders, use of breath, and specific set up and entrance to postures. It may seem overdone at times are at least too much to take in. When people first come to O2, they often start with Basics but not always. Whatever class they start with, they usually say the same thing at the end of class, “Wow. That was...
