Notes for our Sunday Conference with Diana...

The significance of Snake Year 

Consciousness/Awareness 
4th through 7th chakras
Live Life BIG 
mindfulness vs. mindlessness
open to all possibilities
enjoy little moments


Pose of year:  Snake/Dog – 3 lines of energy:  heart area, spine and hip flexors
Increase AND lengthen inhalation (inhale …inhale … inhale…), soften heart and hip areas

Move into the depth of your practice through pratyahara, dharana; dhyana and samadhi.
Instills and evokes acceptance, forgiveness, living “exposed”, to LOVE and be loved.

Sadhana”:  Your practice; your liberation;  a gift; an imprint into your own being…
Abayasa” :  Your commitment to a LIFELONG practice –keep dancing


“Researching” (stretching)
  •   Lunges prior to your practice – opens and lengthens hip flexors
  •   Reclining Hero Pose (Supta Virasana) – opens and lengthens hip flexors (place block between shoulders, opens up thoracic area)
  •   Basketball (EasterBall):  place in mid-back area – opens lower-to-mid back/heart areas; opens lines of energy between base of spine to crown chakra (sushumna nadi).


ADD to Supta Virasana:  If your hip flexors are tight, lie back into Supta Virasana with one knee bent; add block placed between hip area opposite of bent knee; breathe deeply.   Change sides.  


Homework and weekly message:

Continue researching poses prior to your practice – Breathe deeply
