  • Weekend Intention: Give Your Lower Body (& Self) Some LOVE with Gigi Yogini

    deep lunge

    This upcoming weekend devote 30 minutes of your time to lend your lower body some love and support. Why the lower body?

    Let’s ask the joyful and inspiring Gigi Yogini:

    When I first started practicing yoga regularly, I was slightly intimidated. The image of yoga women looked half my size. But it wasn’t long until I realized that yoga had benefits for everybody’s shape, big or small.

    I started to appreciate my body for all the incredible things it could do, even if it didn’t look like the images I saw on the cover of yoga magazines. I felt incredible relief from hip opening and started to get stronger with lunges and warrior poses.

    Now that yoga is my full-time business, I’m committed to helping people strengthen their mind-body relationship and love the body that they have. In the short video, Lower Body Love, I encourage you to practice love for your legs because they carry you from point A to B with ease every day.

    Enjoy this practice as a way to appreciate your legs, warm-up or cool down before or after a run, or to get a quick stretch in the middle of your day.


    Feel the love with some deep lunges and stretches in Gigi’s lovely 30-minute online yoga class: Lower Body Love. Practice gratitude for your legs and release any self-judgment you're clinging to so you can continue to gracefully and confidently move around the world.
