Siesta Yoga

We offer Yoga of many types: Hatha • Ashtanga • Vinyasa Flow • Restorative
We hold monthly sound baths and a variety of other healing workshops.

Parking is available in a small lot behind the studio. Be sure your spot is marked "Siesta Yoga." Established in 2011 Siesta Yoga was founded with the idea of creating a comfortable, safe place for people to find their breath and move around a bit. It has turned into a school for yoga students to heal and tune into themselves, while being a part of a sweet community of yogis. From students who hav

Tomorrow the moon is dark, which offers the perfect time to get cozy and sit for a while. Invite, observe, and accept what sensations may come up, what visions present themselves, what ideas arise, and the subtle world you can detect in the quiet dark of the night.

Happy Equinox!
Today is a day of balance. Equal day and night. So, why not embrace that equilibrium with the Equal Parts Breathing Exercise?
#samavritti
Inhale and exhale for 4 counts each.
Add a 4 count pause after the inhale.
Add a 4 count pause after the exhale.
Take 1-5 minutes to enjoy this “box breathing” = 4 in / 4 pause / 4 out / 4 pause
Then, rest and observe.

Happy Full Moon!

It’s a good day for grounding. We’ve got a @modularsoundbath dedicated to just that tonight at 6:30pm, live on YouTube. Donations of any amount are welcome - link to register in bio.

Be sure to feel your feet on the ground, maybe even your whole body (#savasana ). Breathe long exhales and get heavy. Allow yourself some time and space to rest. Oh, and of course, gaze at the moon!

Wishing you well!

Diaphragmatic Breathing and Its Benefits 08/24/2021

Diaphragmatic Breathing and Its Benefits

While looking for a good description of Belly Breathing for our followup email to our Modular Sound Bath, I came across this. It lists the benefits of this simple but profound breathing technique, and even offers a couple variations on it. Have a read!

Diaphragmatic Breathing and Its Benefits Your diaphragm, like so many muscles in your body, can be strengthened or used more effectively. Diaphragmatic breathing, or "belly breathing," is the practice of breathing deeply and making sure to engage this muscle. Let’s take a look at what to do.

Well Wishes to you on this Full Moon night!
We worked with our #solarplexuschakra and #kapalabhatipranayama to clear our heads, open our eyes, and come into ourselves all in order to listen to what this bright night has to say. This is a good night for a moving meditation. The summer moon energy is high and all we can do is flow with it. Christian and I (Brandee) led a noontime sound bath today that would be a great addendum to your practice tonight and tomorrow.
If you’d like access, just check out our bio link and you’ll get the recording for 30 days and some follow-up practices!

This outdoor #siestaplant is so thrilled with the sunshine that it’s blooming up a storm! The bees love it and we admire it every day! Those end of summer sunny afternoons are just the right vibe.

We are in the last month of Summer which is such a transitional time: school restarting; weather shifting; days shortening; activities waning; vacations ending. It is a chance to take our time to shift. In that time, we can hold both the former and upcoming, while feeling into right now. Our next Modular Sound Bath (online to keep everyone comfy and safe) offers space for this mindset. It is an afternoon event during the full moon part of our lunar cycle, which allows us an upbeat in energy and a downbeat in activity. Let's learn to mesh the two and create balance in our movement into Fall.

SUMMER SOUNDS at Noon on August 22.

We’re always discovering new things about ourselves: new ways to express ourselves or to understand the world around us, a physical imbalance or a talent we didn’t know we had. The practice of yoga gives us the space and time to do this discovering. And, once we know it, we can incorporate it!

We’re in our first week of summer and tonight is a Full Strawberry Moon, which is a real looker if it’s anything like last night’s clear and bright display! Summertime full moons carry for some of us an extra dose of energy, activity, sleeplessness, eagerness, anxiety, digestive complications, over-heating, excitement, or any number of other big reactions. The sun is bright; the days are long; the moon is bright; the nights are light. This said, we have our breath and we have our tools to help us through if it becomes overwhelming.
Happy Summer ☀️ Happy Strawberry Moon 🍓 We hope you get something out of the practices below:
1. Bask - stand in, walk in, sit in the moonlight.
2. Gaze - gaze with soft eyes at the bright orb in the night sky.
3. Observe - notice your reaction to the shift in energy. How are you showing up around others, to yourself, in the workplace, in your body?
4. Breathe - take loooong exhales to balance the extra activities you’re engaged in.
5. Sleep - allow yourself time to rest, take breaks, stop what you’re doing when you’re tired, take Savasana, do Restorative, meditate. Any and all of these will help with a good night’s sleep.
