“The greatest control is the beauty in understand when it is necessary and when it is holding you hostage.” Yoga over the past years have taught me that very lesson. Releasing the control during chaos and remaining peaceful has saved my heart from explosion and my mind from anxiety attacks. Through my practices of Hatha Yoga and Pranayama, I have found my grace. When one has begin to master the elegance of freeing one’s soul, the next reasonable move is to guide other’s in freeing their souls as well. It’s contagious and an amazing feeling to spread a loving practice like yoga! So, I, Artasia Green, a small town Mississippian whose environment was ignorant of this practice, have decided to dedicate peacefully the art of Yoga.
Hiya! The name is Tiff. Who am I? What a question...am I right? First off…. I am an alien...not of this world. This is how I’ve always gone through life….with this perspective of myself that I was so different than others that would surround me. I was always treated so differently by children-as a child myself. I was always the ‘weird one’ the ‘creep’….if you will. I’ve taken great hold of these titles...and I have embraced and welcomed them in. I am also a recovering addict. And now, a yoga instructor. By stumbling upon yoga, I have learned the most magical of all tools….that anyone could ever uphold…..and I am here to spread the word lemme tell you. Tools that will set you free. As a recovering addict….once I found yoga…..it rocked my entire living world upside down (in the best ways possible). For I had taken on a new form…. A new form with new powers…. Extremely strong powers. Powers that taught me how to cope...not just cope...but how to heal, how to love, how to feel, how to calm, and most of all how to LIVE. My favorite yogas to teach is definitely restorative at this moment in time. I teach Yin, Props (obsessed), Iyengar, Ashtanga, pretty much anything as long as it isn’t Hot Yoga….i don’t want to die yet- and I am a delicate flower that will melt instantly.I’ve been very involved in trauma yoga lately. That being said… I am now molding myself to be the best trauma conscience yoga instructor that I can be. I am positive and ready for literally ANYTHING! Bring it on Mercury Retrograde!

With kegels, it’s a “one size fits all” solution. Kegels support tightening the pelvic floor muscles, but for many women, the pelvic floor is already too tight, or hypertonic. This can cause serious problems in posture and breath – a hypertonic pelvic floor can lead to painful intercourse, urge incontinence, pelvic pain, even IBS. And kegels don’t address the hypotonic pelvic floor either. If a woman is suffering from stress incontinence (which happens to many women after childbirth or once they reach their late 30's), then just tightening the muscles doesn’t address other issues such as ligament strains or instability in the pelvic organs due to accidents, trauma, pregnancy or birth. Kegels also describe as “cutting off the flow of urine” which brings all of the attention of contraction to the front of the pelvic floor, losing sight that there is much more to the pelvic floor and its function for the female body.Simply put, kegels are not helpful for everyone. Your pelvic floor could be too tight, too loose or healthy and how this manifests between the front, back and both sides is unique. It is often assumed that pelvic floor problems come from a hypotonic (loose) pelvic floor, although recent research has shown this is often not the case. Through pelvic floor yoga you will understand how your pelvic floor is functioning as a whole and we will design specific movements to address your unique body.

Pelvic floor yoga is the focus of aligning breath and posture in order to support the function of the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles act like a sling to support the bladder, uterus, and rectum. The breath is an important part of this – you want to visualize the pelvic floor stretching as you inhale and contracting as you exhale. And with proper posture we can clear to path to breath, to support the pelvic floor, and to be on our way to a strong pelvic floor yoga practice. Through pelvic floor yoga you will cultivate the awareness and tools needed to work toward healing and health.
