Our most recent yoga class centered on the word Adapt. This was to help us think of ways to get into certain poses. I used it, and our conversation before class, to figure out a way to almost do downward dog(!). I have a lingering injury which does not enjoy the way of the dog.… Continue reading Adapt
Yesterday’s word for my yoga class was slow. The idea was that we would be deliberate (and slow) in our practice. We slowed our breathing as well as our movements.
