Tara Stiles is all about helping her students create a connection with their body. Drawing on her background in classical ballet, choreography, and yoga, Tara created a new practice called Strala. It combines the movements of yoga with tai chi, qigong, and traditional Chinese medicine as a way to help people release stress and heal. We asked Tara to offer her take on Fit Tips On The Go, and true to form, her insights are all about ease, softness, and feeling good.
Connect with Your Breath
Ease your body and soften your breath
Take a big inhale and float your arms up
The palms meet and fall in place to your heart
Gentle Side Stretch
Ease your elbow to the ground
Reach up and over
Roll around however it feels nice
Find neutral and connect with your breath
Gentle Forward & Back Stretch
Crawl forward a little bit, drop your head and neck.
Find an easy sway, if that feels good
Bring yourself all the way back
Fingertips press hips and chest up
