Warrior of the Week: Eric Nielson

How long have you been practicing at Flux Power Yoga? How did you know this was your place?

I’ve been practicing at flux about 1 year . A friend brought me and I enjoyed the relaxed but knowledgeable atmosphere,  so I kept coming!

How has your practice evolved and /or what benefits have you gotten in your practice and in your life?

My practice has evolved mostly in its intent. I would say I started solely to gain more flexibility. Now, it has more facets for me. I consider it a spiritual practice, a strength and mobility training and a lifestyle choice. Its strengthened my meditation practice and my awareness of self both physically, mentally and spiritually.  With that, my general quality of life and ability to stay balanced,  compassionate, and focused have improved.

Favorite pose and why?

I’d say dancer pose. It challenges me in balance, strength and mobility. Also, its a fun transition into or out of many other poses! Also, slightly reminds me of some kung fu poses.

Any advice for new yogis?

Be patient with yourself and your practice. Know the value in effort and surrender are equal. Be sure to enjoy yourself! Haha
