Floor Yoga for Energy and Strength
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ― Nikola Tesla
It is a time to celebrate,
Time to celebrate the end of an era and the beginning of healing.
Collectively, for the world, for the USA.
Whether or not Trump succeeded in some ways as the president of the USA, he is a terrible human being, and that means more to me than policy or money or our standing in the world.
So I am happy that I no longer have to worry about another 4 years looking at his face and knowing he represents this country.
I'm a humanist you see.
There are a lot of different kinds of Humanists, but I consider myself someone who simply believes that our collective humanity comes first, before profit or laws or country, and that we all have rights that should never be stepped on, regardless of your home country, the language you speak, the color of your skin, your religion, or any other myriad of things that make you the beautiful being that you are.
So that's my tangent for the day. I'm grateful that we will have a new president, who will not be perfect, but who, I hope, will be a more compassionate and thoughtful human than the last one.
Speaking of compassion, this class is born from self-compassion.
Do you remember when I hurt my knee?
That's cool. I get it. No one pays attention to me anyway... *slouches off*
Anyway, I couldn't put weight on my flexed leg, so there are a few classes filmed with no standing sequence.
This is one of them.
Rather than building heat through jumping or more intense postures, we build heat with the breath.
In this class we focus on a pranayama technique called Breath of Fire.
Breath of Fire is an AMAZING technique that releases toxins from the lungs, strengthens the nervous system against stress, expands lung capacity, increases oxygen delivery to the brain, boosts the immune system and, my personal favorite, warms you up!
Though we don't move far from the mat, this class is sure to get you sweating, get the body heated, and is an excellent class to come back to in the winter months.
Or anytime it's a tid bit nipply.
Hope you enjoy! Leave me a "BoF YES!" below the class so I know you're doing that Breath of Fire!
