Peas, Love and YOGA!

I LOVE DOING YOGA OUTSIDE! The warm weather is here and it's time once again to breathe in the delicious morning air at Minto Island Growers Farm. Please join me for Peas, Love and Yoga at The MIG Farm Stand every Friday morning from 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM, June to September. This is an All Levels class, everyone is welcome! Donations are greatly appreciated. Please bring your own props such as a yoga mat, blocks, straps, etc. If you have any questions or need to borrow a mat, call or text me at 503-990-5043

MIG Farm is a wonderful place to be! It has everything we need to open our senses, to connect with the land, and to connect with each other. Experience the beautiful flowers and organic veggies, the sounds of a working farm, and the amazing smells wafting from the food truck while doing yoga.

I am pleased to be invited to share Yoga on the farm with our community for another summer. Thank you to the hardworking, farm loving, yogis and farmers at MIG and special thanks to owner, Elizabeth Miller.


Directions to the farmstand: Located just 10 minutes from downtown Salem .3 miles off of River Road South at 3394 Brown Island Road South in Salem, Oregon 97302.  
After turning on Brown Island Road, cross the railroad tracks, passing our nursery on your right. Continue following signs to the farm stand, which will appear on your right after the tall trees- look for a white canopy and brown pole building.

My Favorite Stretch

My favorite stretch for low back pain.
(Photos by Emily Hall Photograhy)

Lay on your back. Bend your right knee and place your foot near your right hip (in line with your hip, not out to the side). Side bend your upper body to the right and hold your ankle with your right hand. If you can't reach your ankle, no problem. Stretch your left hand overhead as far as is comfortable. If reaching overhead doesn't work for you, reach out to the side or to a 45° angle. Soften at the fold of your left hip. Lengthen as much as you can through your left side. Again, do this at your comfort level, stretching should be pain free. Hold for at least 10 deep breaths, exhaling all the way out. Repeat on the other side. Do this every day. This is one you can even do in bed if getting up from or down to the floor is a challenge.

Part two, repeat this stretch with a block under your hips (at the sacrum, not the low back). Flatten your low back as much as you can. This deeper stretch focuses on the hip flexor muscles.Photos by Emily Hall
