Is this SERIOUSLY how Spring Break is going to start?
We don’t like to complain, but cooooooooo (OM) ooooome on! This snow needs to go. We are so ready to feel the sun on our faces – and to peel off a few of these layers.
Okay, enough of all that. We know that we need to let it go, and luckily there are lots of events available this week to help us do just that.
Check them out and let us know where you will be getting your flow on! Hashtag #njyogacollective and #practicelocalnj and maybe we can meet up for a few asanas!

Dig Yoga, Lambertville
The pelvic floor is an often neglected part of our anatomy.When well toned and activated, this wrap of muscle between the pubic bone and the tail bone supports a surprising range of health benefits: improved bladder functioning, regular bowel movements, prevention and alleviation of hemorrhoids, a balanced reproductive system, and a soothing of the sympathetic nervous system. But when the muscles of the pelvic floor grow weak, the forces of time and gravity take their toll, and we gradually fall prey to a host of problems.Yoga can help you strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles and relax tight ones. A practice which coordinates alignment with slow, considered movements and the breath, is particularly well suited. Learn which poses are right for you and ancient Ayurveda strategies to help support and deepen you relationship with your own pelvis and pelvic floor muscles.
