Sunday Conference 5.26.13


Notes from our Sunday Conference with Diana...


May 26, 2013

“Working” Conference:  Pre-practice openers
·      Lunges;
·      Shalabasana  (Locust Pose) – A and B.  Knees and feet engaged and together; roll outer gluts inward;
·      Dhanurasana (bow pose).  Keep knees touching and feet together; and
·      Ushtrasana (camel pose).  Fully engage legs; hips forward and roll outer gluts inward.


“Posture Guru” – Avoid rounding of your back; focus on extension and flexion. 
(New York Times article of May 11, 2013 – The Posture Guru of Silicon Valley)


Story-telling time (while still doing our pre-practice openers….)


Have you read or heard about “Road Trip Nation?”  In a nutshell:  Young, unemployed people traveling in a bus across the country to interview individuals who are “success stories” in their own right.  What did they all have in common?  Failures and mistakes galore.
Lesson learned:
Be “right” with yourself; feel good about yourself exactly where you are right now; mindfully choose how you “see” things; be the “looking bird..”

Homework:
Continue researching poses prior to your practice along with the 2nd series poses.
