A happy Friday to you, and along with that we wish you happy hips, too! This week's #FreeVideoFriday is a classic favorite of ours from Shannon Algeo: his Happy Hips practice.
This 65-minute yoga session with Shannon is designed for all levels (take it at your pace) and is great to practice at any time of day. If your hips and lower back are feeling tight, this is a great practice to restore balance and oil up the joints for optimal ease and relief.
For many weeks after we started our podcast, The MOJO Show, my mom thought that where said "Hey MOJO Mob" we were actually saying "Hey MOJO Moms!" 🤣Well, this week's #FreeVideoFriday is actually all about MOJO moms with Monique Ducharme-Pullen's Prenatal Yoga for the 1st Trimester. Now, this is a great video to learn about important do's and don'ts when you find yourself with child. It's also got some great, soothing practices that everyone, pregnant or not, will certainly enjoy.
If life has you feeling a little rough around the edges, or just plain worn out, this week's #FreeVideoFriday will hit the reset button on the nose. Sara Crawford's Rest and Recovery Day invites us to take a nice full break from the rest of the world and dive in to a well-rounded practice to rejuvenate our bodies and our spirits. It's designed for CrossFitters and athletes, but every body will benefit from this recovery practice.
Ever feel like you're running around like the poor proverbial chicken with no head? We do, too. But that's why we have yoga, right?! Our yoga mat calls to us with the reminder that slow is smooth and smooth is oftentimes the fastest way to do anything. This week's #FreeVideoFriday, Meredith Cameron's Molasses, will help us remember to slow down and be clear in what we're doing when life tries to whip us into a frenzy.
Are you ready for summer yet? Now that we're in the full swing of spring, it's high time to start dusting off the winter cobwebs (if you haven't already) and getting into a sunny summer state of mind. So, whether you're a surfer or beach bunny or lawn jockey, everyone can tap into that happy outdoors mindset with this week's #FreeVideoFriday: Yoga for Surfers with Jean Marie Johnson!
Sadly, anxiety abounds these days in the US, and it's safe to say in much of the rest of the world. For many it's acutely heightened by political tensions and uncertainty in the moment. For others of us, it's just a daily struggle. Fortunately for all of us, we do have the refuge of meditation and yoga to help us take care of the one thing over which we do have a chance at exercising some control in this world: our state of mind.
Ready for your free treat this week? Lisa Simmons designed this week's feature specifically for runners, but it's also a great practice for anyone who wants more open hips and hamstrings with a stronger core and more relaxed vibe. Yes, please!
This week's free treat comes to you courtesy of MOJO powerhouse, Meredith Cameron. Chaturanga Dandasana (4 Limbed Staff Pose): if you know anything about yoga you probably have some strong opinions about it. Well, Meredith has a great take on Chaturanga that's all about stability, with actionable tips you can incorporate into your practice starting right now.
Happy Friday, indeed! #FreeVideoFriday is back and this one's a very special treat: Day 1 of Kassandra Reinhardt's 14 Day Yin & Yang Yoga Challenge. It's a 2 week program for a stronger, leaner, more stress-free you... Yes, please!
The new year is almost upon us, and are you as pumped as I am?! New Year's celebrations are my absolute favorite holiday, and you can hear why in this week's episode of The MOJO Show. And our #FreeVideoFriday feature this week is yet another new year ritual that makes this time of year so special: it's my Tips for Your 108 Sun Salutations!
And now, here at the end of another week, we present to you for #FreeVideoFriday Lisa's Yoga for Insomnia and Relaxation. We heard her confession on the podcast that she's a "terrible sleeper" and that was the inspiration for this practice. We hope that whether you're a terrible sleeper too, or you just need to wind down and relax, this practice offers you some soothing reprieve. Enjoy
Well, if you're having a hard time implementing them, or don't really know where to start, this week's #FreeVideoFriday is here to help. Day 1 of The Find Your MOJO Challenge details some of my favorite ways to practice gratitude, which just so happens to be the #1 happiness practice in our challenge for this week.
Hustle and bustle is already upon us, and we know that it can be surprisingly difficult to keep up with our self-care practices when our attention (and wallets) are being pulled in so many directions. But never fear, dears, for MOJO is here with tools aplenty to help you stay sane this holiday season.
We hope this week has been kind to you! If you find yourself in a funk on this fine Friday, though, be sure to check out our most recent blog from Meredith Cameron: her "Do's and Don'ts for When You're in a Funk." And then, of course, brush off the week's woes with our #FreeVideoFriday offering from Meredith, "You Can," that reminds us that no matter how busy or funked-up we might be, we can always find a little space to do a little yoga. Enjoy it free this week only and ever after as a MOJO Member in our virtual library. May this help you elevate your state and sail into the week ahead refreshed and renewed!
