Find peace with hip tension...

(Click for more benefits)

After being out for 10 days with a psoas injury. I found great comfort and help in yoga. As I practiced I was able to inventory on my body....

What did it want??
Where was I tight??
How could I better myself??

It was wonderful to have the time to reconnect and become grounded again. So many times we think that we need to pound out our weaknesses to get results. When really we need to take the time to reflect and listen to our bodies. The body really knows what is best!

Short on time...

Some days we don't have a lot of time to fit our workout in. Use the time you have wisely and bring all that you have. An awesome workout that I did today...which created some major sweat.

1 minute sprint followed by 1 minute recovery. I only had 15 minutes for cardio and it worked out great. You can use the Elliptical, bike, stair mill, or treadmill. Just push yourself to an 8/9 intensity. Remember you aren't doing it long. So make it worth your while.
