Patricia will be teaching our first yoga class starting this Sunday at 10 AM. Patricia used to spend countless hours at the “Globo gym” lifting weight 4-5 times a week and many cardio sessions. After trying different types of training programs, in 2009 she decided to give hot-yoga a try. Yoga was not love at first sight. Her first few classes were very challenging especially in a heated room. After acclimating to the heat, she finally embraced yoga and it quickly became part of her daily routine. Shortly after getting yoga, a friend invited Patricia to attend Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint seminar which lead her discovery into the Crossfit world. After a couple months into it, she noticed Crossfit is the only training where she is seeing consistent improvements in strength, endurance and agility. Since then Patricia has been balancing on doing both because her passion for fitness. She believes that both trainings are really complementary of each other in building flexibility, balance, improve concentration and breath awareness to help mental focus and mental endurance.
Her motivation to better improve her practice as well as gaining better understanding the technical knowledge of yoga lead her decision to take Baptiste-Level One training to in 2012. Shortly thereafter she also decided to get her L1 Trainer certification for the same reasons she took yoga teacher training. Patricia is a recent transplant from Seattle where she used to teach yoga at her former Crossfit gym. She’s excited to get back into teaching yoga at HomeGrown Crossfit!

Once your hands and the oar handle have cleared your knees, allow your knees to bend and gradually slide the seat forward on the monorail.

The Catch (Position 1) Arms are straight; head is neutral; shoulders are level and not hunched.
Upper body is at the one o’clock position—shoulders in front of hips.
Shins are vertical and not compressed beyond the perpendicular.
Balls of the feet are in full contact with the footplate.
The Drive (Phase 2) With straight arms and while maintaining the position of the upper body at one o’clock, exert pressure on the foot plate and begin pushing with your legs.
As your legs approach straight, lean the upper body back to the eleven o’clock position and draw the hands back to the lower ribs in a straight line.
The Finish (Position 2) Legs are extended and handle is held lightly at your lower ribs.
Upper body is at the eleven o’clock position—slightly reclined with good support from your core muscles.
