Tis the season in North Carolina where drifts of green pollen coat everything outside. When the wind whips it up, it is almost inescapable and all the common symptoms of allergy season are upon us. This week we will practice postures to open the chest to encourage the breath, some mudras to help release congestion as well as relaxing postures with the head elevated to lessen sinus pressure.
I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
