just completed my 1st round of Embodying Enoughness by @TurbodogYoga. did 1, 2, 2, & 3. Had good memory of Dad at the end, crying & laughing
taught today using Shower, Chest Opener on Wall, Abs with A Block, Frog Lifting Through, 5 x Sun Salutations, b-series w/ Rev. War., Pyramid w/ Achilles Stretch, War. I; my student, who claimed a head-cold at the beginning of class, did well. aho!
Under the guidance the Embodying Enoughness series by Turbo Dog Yoga Chicago, I am learning how to change the null-loops that infest my brains. The process is simple; it is honest; to borrow from the language of the computer, it uses the basic technique of writing over old memories with new data. After a thorough yoga session, one lies in corpse pose and delves deeply into the psyche, rooting around for stuck or toxic patterns. Then, once one has selected a memory and it is playing before the mind's eye, one re-imagines it as if it had had the best of possible outcomes, as if all the bad things that happened were instead good things, as if pain and suffering had instead been relaxation and joy. It is liberating to be able to change one's personal perception of the past in this way; it is a salubrious activity to step back from daily self-flagellation and free oneself from attachment to past events, lost hopes, and broken dreams. To walk this path requires guts, and determination; it is not for the weak of heart, or for those people who are not yet ready to heal. But once begun, addictive is a fitting term for the process of exhuming one's buried skeletons and snipping loose the threads of thought that tend to tether one to events and people reachable only within the time machine we call the mind. Chest up, breathe hugely, self-liberate! Aho.

personal practice today was lesson 1 of Embodying Enoughness by @TurbodogYoga, Chicago. It was a powerful class, especially the guided meditation at the end; I regained an ally and a piece of my power down below. The transformation has begun; the chakras align. aho!
personal practice today was What Exactly Does the Spirit Feel Like, by H. Sormaz. taught class using neck release pose, down dog 1 leg up, laying down forward fold. already 1/3 of the way through reading Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss - great book, I've learned so much.
pers. practice today: buzzing up the chakras. reading #AnatomyOfTheSpirit, by @CarolineMyss. things are starting to move in my deep power centers as I work through these books, establish boundaries in my life, and begin to distance myself from people who dim or leech my energy. so much discovery, so much healing. aho!
pers. practice: 90 minute self-guided session. taught class with 5 sets of sun salutations, chest opener on wall, apex: camel on wall. aho!
to the best of my ability I update this blog Sunday through Friday
