Day 65 LA-Yogaglo-Tara Judelle

First stop in L.A… Yogaglo, where the skeptical YoYos spotted a sign that read…”Monthly Yoga-$18”.  Really?  The YoYos knew that’d be the price of admission to take just one “e-ticket” ride with our “Seattle to San Francisco” recommended Anusara teacher, Tara Judelle, or any of the other “super star” instructors at this pioneering studio.  So what’s the catch??? Would unsuspecting yogis have to wash mirrors and clean toilets for all eternity?

Closely examining this chic, pure white, vast studio soundstage, we discovered hidden cameras and small tape marks on the floor where yogis in this innovative space were to lay their mats. Welcome to L.A!  The “not dressed for success” YoYos quickly found a front and center space to throw down the Mandukas to shy from the cameras that were filming from the back.  Bummer, if YoYoYogini would have known her backside would be smilin’ to the camera, she would have been sportin’ her new butt liftin’, thigh squeezin’, leg- lengthenin’ Hatha Power Pant from Lucy.

Seems recently opened Yogaglo(bal) is the brainchild of Derik Mills, a regular genius of a yogi who has pioneered a way to bring “off the charts” yoga into living rooms across the globe, by streamin’ diverse HD classes onto computers or flat screens takin’ away the age old snag of time and money.  But, here’s where this ground breakin’ idea explodes…yogi members on a budget, the international set and road trippers alike are invited to attend the plethora of  classes offered at this stylin’ space at no additional charge.  Cool!

Tara loves those Hip Openers

Tara loves those Hip Openers

Tara, our tale tellin’ teacher, entertained our class as she opened with a story about her “glo”in’ sister who had endured four days of natural child birthin’ labor while goin’ through intense contraction and powerful expansion with bouts of joy and saltiness.  HMMMM…sounded like the YoYo’s in Tara’s class.   This skilled instructor continually returned to this seemingly humorous recount of her sisters “breathin’ through it” exercise, while joyfully introducing challenging and unfamiliar asana, a killer balancin’ sequence, and “birthin’ babies” hip and thigh openers as she comically kicked our ass.

The YoYo’s love the “off the charts” quality of this teacher and  groundbreakin’ studio who’s truly bringing yoga to everyone…even the roadtrippin’ YoYo’s, who can now just fire up the MAC and Yogaglo anywhere… on this most excellent adventure!
