Gave a barefoot running talk + eischens yoga, super strong training!!

MBG Chicago in january 2011:) hahaha
Man we've come along way!! Busy long day today and just made me think of how far we've come since coming down here to chicago...these shots are from January 2011 about 6 weeks before we opened!
QUESTION FOR YOU: Have you experienced the Ah Hah moment while doing Eischens Yoga? If yes, was it strong or very light feel? If not, but you just feel good, well that is cool too:) I just want you to feel it really strong and powerful like we do and like all the folks at Lululemons did tonight:) SO tell me how it is and i'll help answer your question...remember other folks probably have the same thing going on so lets get some feedback going on here too!!
Tonight went over to lululemons on the north side and talked on Eischens Yoga for Runners and it went over great! Started by talking to them about and then teaching them proper running form and then how to use Eischens Yoga to improve your running even more. We did 1 pose with feedback and 100% responded with eyes popping out and jaws dropping at how amazing they felt after standing back up:) That is priceless! Got to love that!!!

MBG 1 restoration - for sure did some at class tonight (EY beginner sequence), then did more at LLL's so simple, so powerful!!
MBG 2 training - trained BJJ with mosquito for 45 minutes then luiz for 15 more minutes til noon class started....incredible sweat!!! For training did all skills to start, working on combination moves alternating bars and floor work;
  • muscle up to jump to other bar for 5 sets of 5 which was good!!
  • handstand holds to planche holds 5 x 3, then tried to press back up....which was a few inches:) hahaha
then decided to do a little prison 12-2 workout of;
  • handstand push ups x 12/10/8/6/4/2
  • cliffhanger crawls for half reps as it's 20 feet long:) x 6/5/4/3/2/1
  • did all in straight sets:)
MBG 3 plantstrong eating!!
  • maca cafe'
  • bananas, blueberries, walnuts,  apple juice, lifes basics (kept me going strong from 8 to 2!!)
  • bananas, kale, sunflower seeds, source of life (felt great afterwards)
  • organic food bar
  • raw veg falafal wraps, kale salad
  • blue corn chips and hummus
peace my friends:)
sleep tight!


  1. I love the 'ah ha!' moments.
    So curious what pose it was that you did with these runners.

  2. You have come a long ways! Very cool to see. Not sure I've ever had an ah-hah moment with EY. Probably because I do it solo, without feedback. I also did not start with major pain or imbalances, so that might make a difference. Love to feel it someday though. :)

  3. I want to know the pose too! My AHA moment was appreciating how gentle and peaceful I felt after EY -especially with Ali teaching. Sometimes yoga classes stress me out (not the point, I know) but never EY.

  4. the single pose was supine bridge, the young lady did it on her own as she has in her regular yoga practice...then same SB with eischens yoga feedback 1st on shins, then heels, then hips, then hands for about 5 count each...when she got up she beamed!! and told everyone one there OMG you gotta do this:) hahaha we then did it with alternate leg lifts and showed the hip imbalances and showed how to engage to correct and they really loved that and could see and hear (via the lecturing) how it can help and improve running alignment and performance:) it was no doubt an AHA moment:)

  5. About 3 weeks ago, I tweaked by lower back due to being careless with my technique with KB swings. The next day I was pretty sore. I got up and did wide leg forward flexion for about 30-40 seconds, focusing on lengthening the spine. The pain was gone! Just like that! My a-ha moment!
