SO Welcomes Sarah Oliver to Teaching Staff

Yoga found Sarah Oliver back in 2004 when training and racing for endurance sports began to cause wear and tear injuries on a consistent basis. Once she landed on a yoga mat, she quickly learned to fully appreciate the mind, body and soul connection that only yoga seemed to be able to provide. In 2008, she received her 500 Hour Yoga Alliance certification through Sunstone Yoga in Dallas, TX and has been teaching and continually learning ever since. With a B.S. in Health Promotion, encouraging and enabling others to live a healthy lifestyle is what Sarah is truly passionate about.  She is also certified in Itsy Bitsy Yoga ©, SPINNING©, STOTT© Pilates, and is a USA Triathlon certified coach.  Sarah will be teaching the Southern Flow series at Southern Om.  Welcome Sarah!

Pose of the Month: Dhanurasana (Bow Pose)

In Sanskrit, Dhanu translates to bow. Asana means pose. The body looks like an archer's bow. As the spine is toned and made flexible becoming elastic with practice, the abdomen is toned in this posture.   In Dhanurasana, as in all backbends, it is important to protect your lower back by keeping distance between the vertebrae in your lower spine.   This is accomplished by tilting the pelvis by moving the coccyx toward the pubic bone while simultaneously lifting the ribcage up from the pelvis.  This action should be maintained throughout the pose.  It keeps your lower back long with space between vertebrae and helps prevent back injury.
