During what we can all agree has been a challenging year, Arielle reminds us that finding fitness, wellness and balance is not all about hammering or holding a 5-minute side crow.
“This year I rolled out my mat at home regularly, but I also took time to ground and re-center myself in nature,” she says. “I had long phone calls with friends across the country and filled up a couple of different journals with musings from my heart … So while this year’s practice probably had a few less downward-facing dogs then previous years, it was no less profound.”
By the way, this is a woman who truly takes outdoor adventure to the next level. If she’s not striking a yoga pose on jagged precipice or hammering on fat tires in the desert, she’s shredding on a snowboard, sunbathing on a beach or navigating a slot canyon.
In all this, she points out that finding balance amid challenges, those brought on by the pandemic and beyond, requires introspection. “Every time I paused for a full breath, rolled out my mat or dropped in for a meditation, I was reminded of this place of home that rests within the eye of the hurricane,” she says.
With this in mind, she welcomes everyone registering for her classes this June to “show up as you are. Whether you rolled out your mat every day for the last 14 months or this is your first down dog in over a year, you are welcome.”
