Adding Yoga to Your Fitness Routine

This is a Fitness Guest Post by Katrina Ariel who Teaches a Kamloops Yoga boot camp in Canada
Empowering Your Fitness Practise

centering-in Here’s my take on strength training and working out: It can be an incredible way to get in shape, lose weight, and maintain a healthy body. When you build muscle you feel more capable, and that muscle burns calories for you even when you’re sleeping.

But, for me, fitness has to be balanced with yoga so it doesn’t become a harsh routine of physical force. It should be fun and feel good, not be a form of torture. And, by bringing the two together, you find your yoga practice evolving as you become more in tune with your body. There’s also the fun of discovering what aspects of your practice are more available to you when you’re stronger, and to see yourself in the mirror and think, “Wow! I look great!”

Let every practice be an offering to yourself; a dance of strength and sensitivity led by your breath. Always listen to your body.

FIRST: The first thing is always to connect with your breath, center in and set your intention; envision yourself strong, healthy, happy, and full of energy! Call it in with an Om.

After your warm up you are going to want to find a set of stairs or a curb…should be pretty simple because curbs and stairs are literally everywhere. You are going to do the 4 Different Circuits with the listed amount of reps. and repeat each circuit for a total of 4 times before moving onto the next one…here it goes….

Part 3: Lasting Habits for New Orleans Boot Campers
Find the “self” that is truly you.


A Fitness Blog Post by: Jonathan Kaufman( New Orleans Boot Camp Instructor in Lake view)

Before I kick this off..I want to set the tone of this article because, even though I’m a New Orleans Boot camp instructor. I’m also one of you too! A student of sorts, I am always learning from my campers and when I see someone struggling, my heart goes out to help them.

This is the conclusion to my three-part “lasting Habits” article and I want to try to use it to encourage each camper to find themselves.

Find the “self” that is truly you. Find the “self” that is capable of understanding the changes and the change process, and then takes action. The “self” that succeeds.

Who’s pulling you down in New Orleans?

A Bucket of New Orleans Crabs Pulling you down?

Have you ever seen a bucket full of crabs?
They pinch and pull as they struggle to climb over one another to reach the top of the bucket – to freedom.

Ask any fisherman and they’ll tell you that a bucket full of crabs doesn’t need a lid – they simply won’t escape.

Why? Well, it’s not impossible for a crab to climb to the top, and really if they worked together it would be quite easy. But crabs don’t work together…


Instinctively crabs pull each other down—literally.
