One of the biggest takeaways from our training in December is that no matter what it is you’re creating, consistency is key. So, without fail, I’ve met my personal deadlines of posting weekly and with an eye to share, teach, or provide value to all of you. Out of this, a few opportunities have come my way. The YBC team reached out to collaborate! I was sent their quarterly winter YBC Mantra Box® to review and enjoy and now I get to share it with you!
In this Yoga by Paige intermediate yoga video, we'll actively work on strengthening our legs and butt by linking standing yoga poses during our flow. Use this flow to help build strengthen one-leg standing poses and to increase hip stability.
If you could offer one piece of advice to yourself at 22, what would it be?
To begin, let’s set the scene, Paige Earl (my maiden name) was pretty fresh out of university at 22 and living in Portland, OR. She was dirt poor, just entering the full-time workforce, living with her boyfriend, Justin (my now husband!). Paige and Justin would wait up until midnight the day before paydays so they could go to the grocery store and restock the kitchen. Between working opposite shifts for the same company, they spent their free time Netflixing and chilling before it was a thing—DVDs from Netflix being a splurge. Read on to read my advice….
Okay people! We’ve got some serious items to talk about today: leggings. With so many companies and social influencers floating around it can be really hard to know where to invest your hard earned dollars on premium athletic wear that withstands the test of our yoga bending, sweat drenching bootcamps, crossfit box rips, and athleisure. I mean, if you’re going to drop $100+ for legging, they better be good, right?
In this Yoga by Paige intermediate yoga video, we'll spend time twisting in various poses to help lengthen the lower back, promote digestion, and find space in an otherwise tight area of our body. For a little fun, I've added in a sweep hop option if you are working toward building handstand strength as well. If you often find yourself with a tight lower back, this video is for you!
In this Yoga by Paige: Inversion and Strength Flow we begin to understand the mechanics of the muscles around the shoulder to create greater stability and we play around with a few different types of handstand hops that should help address our sometimes irrational fear of being upside down. Come play!
This week has been a challenging one. We have many things balancing as I prepare for a lot of changes on both the #YBP and personal front. To be super vulnerable, I’m afraid that I’m disrupting a career path that could lead to success because I have silly dreams—dreams of being a full-time yoga teacher. My levels of doubt and uncertainty are so incredibly high that my body is reacting with tension and headaches. Read on for more…
A couple of weeks ago, I made my first ever trip to Joshua Tree, California and everything felt right. You know that feeling when you make it to your destination and, you just know the Universe was guiding you? Yea, that’s the one I felt during our drive down: pure wonder and joy!

I previously shared my Sun Salutation A flow as a way to foster the connection with our breath, mind, and body. These repetitive movements allow us to get out of our heads and into the sensations in our body. As a result we feel more deeply connected to our intuition. We also begin to express our needs more clearly because we know them more intimately.
