YC: Day Five

10/27 Tues - 20 min - MP3 Hip Opening flow w/ Lisa Richards from Yoga Download in my dance room!

This is one of my favourite downloads. I even had a chance to light incense today. My room felt cold from dis-use... I'm happy to start using it again. I also felt it was the right time to re-string one of my Mala's that broke a while ago... it felt like an appropriate time.

Time to go to the store and collect the ingredients to make quiche tonight! Yum!

Everything Ends

So many memories in that place...
good bye Dance Fusion.
Off to a new beginning...

YC: Day Four

10/26 Mon - 60 min - Restorative Yoga w/ Molly McClellan at Dance Fusion

Since I won't have time or inclination to blog after class tonight, figure I'll update now.
Today's yoga is a restorative class offered by my fabulous partner in crime Molly McClellan.
I can't wait for it... it'll be between 3 hours of dance classes and will serve as a bit of a break.

One thing I forgot to note about yesterdays practice was that I actually got side plank for a few seconds. My shoulders fight me constantly in this pose. Trying to find a balance between too much and too little. Chaturunga (sp?) is feeling better slowly but surely too in the shoulder area. It's shimmy time tonight in Belly Dance class... we'll see how they hold up. Cross your fingers for me.

Joanna's Yoga Challenge (YC)

I got the idea for a yoga challenge from Nicole who posted her challenge and blog on a yoga community.
This challenge will extend through the end of November for me.
The basic concept is to do at least 20 minutes of yoga each day, make healthier eating choices, read an excerpt out of Meditations from the Mat each day and blog about it.

I was going to start on November 1st but this past weekend I've done yoga every single day so I figured I'd just start now! Here's what I've done so far...

10/23 Fri - 60 min - Hot Fusion Yoga w/ Melissa at Ken Caryl CorePowerYoga
10/24 Sat - 105 min - Hot Yoga w/ Jim V at Ken Caryl CorePowerYoga
10/25 Sun - 60 min - C1 w/ Lisa at Ken Caryl CorePowerYoga

Time to go take a shower! lol!

Past, Present and Future

Last nights classes turned out to be simply wonderful. The ever lovely Gwyn and Vikki showed up which was very exciting! And we had three new lovely ladies, in addition to all of our fantastic regulars. The energy in the room was exhilarating. So many beautiful and different women.
Pure Joy.
I hope everyone else had as wonderful a night as I did.

Martha Graham Quote

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.

If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not yours to determine how good it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.

You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open. No artist is ever pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”

–Martha Graham to Agnes De Mille
