Warrior of the Week: Jordan Bridges

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

 I have now been practicing at flux for about 6 months and I knew this was my place because during my first class I felt this sense of support immediately from the teacher/Jonathan and then taking my second class with Jen Fairey and third class with Morgan. Wendy, one of my dearest friends had begged me to come to yoga with her for months and I kept on blowing her off because I was was not about to sweat and workout with other people…little did I know it turned out to be so much more than that. The community at flux is really so much more than people that do yoga together, they have created such a family and have been so open to invite others into that family! I now invite as many friends as possible, because I hope to help them find as much joy in it as I do.

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

I have gotten so many positive results out of joining flux! I previously have never done any form of yoga before joining flux. In the 6 months of being with flux, the first time on my mat felt like I had no idea what I was doing but just looking at others and trying to do the poses. But with time it has become so much more than that! My work and just general way of life has so been impacted by doing yoga everyday! I have had previous back surgery and I never thought how yoga could restore a lot of my back muscles but it did that and more! 

Favorite pose and why?

My favorite pose is definitely Downward facing dog and because it’s the pose that I have had the most growth in. Before it actually felt pretty painful with my ankles being weak and my back muscles as well, but I have worked really hard to engage and breathe during class, the instructors know the perfect times to come assist.

Any advice for new yogis?

 Advice to new yogis, would be to really take it at your own pace! This stuff is HARRRDDD, but so rewarding. Show up for you!
