"The Seven"

A suicide bomber killed seven CIA officers and one Jordanian officer at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 after posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. Seven new stars will be etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.
Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46.

CrossFit Scottsdale Yoga…do one thing a day that scares you

Yoga can be intimidating. When I first started practicing, I had no clue about the breadth and depth of yoga. I didn’t know the difference between Childs Pose and Karma…. and don’t even get me started on Sanskrit and yoga class etiquette. I avoided attending a yoga class until I had a few months of practicing to DVDs under my belt. When I showed up for my very first yoga class, I found myself worrying about keeping up.

What I love about CrossFit Scottsdale Yoga is that it makes yoga approachable to the beginner without overwhelming him or her. Classes are small and allow students to move through the poses at their own pace based on their own ability. It offers a solid foundation for any yoga beginner by including the following information: Sanskrit and Hatha Flow basics, benefits of a regular yoga practice, tips for avoiding injury during your CrossFit WOD’s or yoga practice, and yoga class etiquette. The CrossFit Scottsdale Yoga program is designed to increase flexibility, strength, balance, and muscular endurance complimentary to the needs of a CrossFit athlete. Work on stretches and forms that will improve hip mobility, shoulder flexibility, and over-all well-being in a relaxing and rehabilitative environment.

For those of you who are looking for a more direct route to yoga-land, join us at CrossFit Scottsdale on Friday’s at 4:30 pm, for a body weight CrossFit WOD and some yoga.
