Why Cycle? I used to hate it.
I used to hate spinning classes.
There I have said it.
The music was too loud.
The mirrors were too accusing.
The competitive spirit was too much.
The microphones were scratchy and irritating.
Now I love spin class because we do yoga afterwards and final relaxation.
I love the music because it is different and just the right volume that allows conversation and friendship to blossom.
I love the windows we look out of onto the big back yard with horses in neighboring yards to look at, the dogs playing tug of war, and the beautiful green grass.
I love the fact that mirrors are only in the restroom and hallway. I am not critiquing my appearance.
I love the fact that there is no microphone. I love the fact that I am pushing myself into cardio then stretching and relaxing afterwards.
I love spinning class. I enjoy the sweating and cardio. I don't even mind the saddle any more. Picture from the bike.
Many people struggle with pain in their lumbar spine. I gave classes back in December for arthritic pain. Here is an excerpt from a private training for arthritis in the lower back. I hope that it will be beneficial to all who struggle with this issue.
One key factor in preventing strain in the lumbar spine is to maintain its natural degree of curvature. Too much or too little with excessive lordosis or flat lower back can be a precondition for arthritis and poor movement patterns resulting in pain. Normal curvature is maintained by balancing the two actions of moving the top of the thighs back, which arches the lower spine, and then pulling the tailbone down. General tips for yoga include the following when dealing with arthritis and lower back discomfort: • In forward folding, remember to bend at the hips not at the waist. Bring the top of your sacrum forward. Tightness in the hamstrings may make this challenging, but soften the knees. • During twisting movements, stabilize the…
If you had all that you needed, money was no object, and time was abundant, what would you do in 2018? There is something about writing it down that creates the window of opportunity.
Here are my Hopes, Dreams, and Aspirations...
I would write a book. I would tell my story and how yoga has made such a tremendous difference in self-acceptance, body image, and movement.I would travel more with my husband. Owning your own small business is a 24 hour commitment 7 days a week. In order to be gone for a day, I prepare at least one to two weeks ahead of time, hire subs, prepare the studio, find someone to clean the studio and do the daily bookkeeping, laundry, etc. Occasionally, having to cancel a class due to a family emergency makes me feel awful, and I always want to be as punctual and prepared for the people I serve. I love my Tranquility business, but traveling would be a new adventure.I would go back to Kripalu. It is no secret that I have treasured my yoga training there; and the…
You are not too old, and it is not too late. 60 reasons to practice yoga:
1. Your hands, your wrists, your hips, your back, your shoulders hurt - why not try to make them feel better naturally. 2. The more that you stretch or balance, the more confident you feel. 3. Age is just a number and so is what the scale says; why not just move and stay young at heart? 4. Pro-prio-ception is what helps me to know where my body is in space. It aides me in both my fine and gross motor skills. 5. Slowing down my breath calms my mind. 6. Yoga strengthens my upper body, and that alone can prevent my back from being injured. 7. I can choose what I will think about instead of allowing my mind to roam towards negative thinking. 8. It's okay to be the oldest person in yoga school. Especially when you have the wisdom to know how to take better care of yourself while doing arm balances. 9. Strong is the new skinny. Use weight lifting to build the strength you need. Sag is just not cute or fun. 10. Growing older…
