Health is Wealth: 66/243 - Strength Day #RUN #YOGA #MTB

If it’s not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this, and all seasons, is you. A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only celebrations cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your divine heritage and sacred destiny. You are life’s prayer of becoming and its answer. The first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that I might know my own depth, discover new heights, and revel in seas of blessed emotion.

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity - traits of the immortal - your badges of honor. May you wear them with a pride as great as what we feel for you.

Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.

This is the time of year we celebrate ..

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: When manifesting you need to remember these things. 1. Always stay positive. 2. Do not spend time thinking about the opposite of what you want. 3. Meditate daily on what you want. 4. See it, smell it, feel it and hear it. 5. If it is real in your brain, it will be real in the physical.

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: Energy is the currency of the universe. When you “pay” attention to something, you buy that experience. So when you allow your consciousness to focus on someone or something that annoys you, you feed it your energy, and it reciprocates with the experience of being annoyed. Be selective in your focus because your attention feeds the energy of it and keeps it alive, not just within you, but in to the collective consciousness as well.

  • Teacher: Jamie

  • NOTES: I had a great workout at the gym and dipped over to Corepower for Jamie’s C2 class. In hind sight, I should’ve eaten and gone to her C1 class at 1:30p. It was a strength circuit day, so I thought pairing that with the C2 was the best move.

    • Overall, the class was awesome. There were a couple of poses that I couldn’t get just due to my lack of flexibility which is awe some to me because it gives me something to aspire towards.

    • By the time we got to core challenge part of class I could feel my physical energy drain. From there the frustration built, and I did not recover.

    • I knew I should’ve taken it easy for a few different reasons: yesterday was a rest day, and I ran anyway. I got crap sleep and my HRV score was reflecting that. I had an empty stomach, why the hell didn’t I eat anything?

    • The great thing about Jamie is that she continually reminds us to ask ourselves what do we need. I finally started to listen to myself after the core challenge section by the time we got to pigeon. I struggled hard in the Warrior three poses, Virabhadrasana III and when we dropped to pigeon, I knew I just had to drop down into extended Child’s pose, Balasana. I had nothing left. After that, I rotated to my back and remained in Shavasana for the rest of class.

    • Jamie, I apologize if you sensed any negative vibes radiating from me. The frustration got to me. Thank you for a great class and I look forward to tomorrow’s C1 class

Again, when I woke up I felt rested but just lacked the amount the I needed. I could tell I was a bit dehydrated from yesterday and my hips were a bit sore. My lover and I spent the first few hours of the AM wrestling in bed, was the perfect way to wake up and get going on a lazy Saturday morning. Its a full on rest weekend. :)

Today don’t think or say, “I’m tired,” “I’m hurt,” “I’m angry.” Don’t even think or say, “I’m happy.”

Instead, think and say, “I’ve chosen to be tired, hurt, angry.” Or better still, “I’m choosing to be happy.”

You don’t get “hit” by feelings, you feel them based on your perceptions, and you perceive based on your beliefs, and you believe as you choose.

I could still feel a bit of soreness in my right shoulder and right elbow, but will continue to stretch and use the tennis ball on my triceps to loosen up the muscle back there along with my chest. I feel like my chest is pretty tight, I need to focus on loosening up the chest up as well. Going to be a fantastic Friday.

    • At the end of class, Jess handed out these gratitude straws with suggestions written on them. My read, Bring Treats for Your Coworkers. So I figured next class I attend, I will bring donuts from Granny’s in West St. Paul.

    • Class was tough, I was sweating or as like to call it purging like no other. It was a great class. I think I enjoy her music selection that absolute most of all my classes. Sweat. sweat. sweat!

Living in time and space just might be the scariest, most heartbreaking, and lonely path an angel could ever choose.

Until, of course, they realize that being scared doesn’t mean they can’t make a difference, broken hearts can still love just fine, and that feeling lonely doesn’t mean they’re actually alone.

Then they’ll laugh an angel laugh, fluff their wings, and dare a new dare all over again.

Stress: Stress happens when you hold tow opposing thoughts in your mind about the same subject. “I want that, but I can’t have it.” “I am sitting traffic, but I do not want to be.” “I should be doing this, but i do not want to.” This creates disharmony in the mind and gives rise to stressful emotions. You are now at odds with yourself. When an opposite thought contradicts a desire, you have to either change the thought or let go of the desire. You can;t drive down two different roads at the same time. Pick one.

  • Notes: Adam, another teacher, had asked me how class went as I was putting my shoes on and all I could really say, is there ever a bad class? I mean this is by far the cheapest form of therapy possible.

    • I wasn’t planning on attending class today, as Thurs and Sat have been my rest days from Yoga, but some plans changed and I thought going to class was the best idea.

    • Ella, of all the teachers has the calmest presence. With that being said I was still sweating like a bitch in heat in that class. I am starting to look at sweating in these classes like purging. Perhaps the day, I make it through a class completely sweat free, Ill know I am the most balanced version of myself ever? Haha!?

    • In all seriousness, I really enjoy her class. I think this was my second class I have taken by her. It seems, that every class is exactly what you need it to be. For what ever reason, the ending of her class today elicited a really emotional response. I have not a clue why.

    • The earliest memory I have, which I don’t even know is real, is running through a prairie field, I am naked, young, maybe around seven or eight years old, so just tall enough for hands to skim across the tall grass. Mountains surrounding, and trees swaying in the far off distance. I have had this vision more times that I can count through out my life and for some reason is brought a tears to my eye. Or maybe is was just the sweat building pooling in my eye sockets.. . That is what came to mind, I could see it so clear. I have seen this vision more times that I can even remember and it’s always the same. Weird.

    • She left us today in Savasana, which was awesome. A teacher has not done that in a class I had taken before. I felt like I could have stayed there for a couple of hours, but opted to hop up and get back to the day after a bit.

    • Thank you for a great class, Ella, it was much appreaciated!

  • NOTES: Class today was tough as hell and fucking awesome. It was the first C2 class I have taken by Nico and I thoroughly enjoyed the ass kicking. There were a few things that came to mind today that I struggled with.

  • It was not so much a lack in flexibility today as it was muscular endurance. Some of the poses especially the first couple of flows through were deep and held for. I noticed the impingement inside of my hips. There were a couple of times I thought my hamstrings were going to cramp but I pulled out of it. Half Moon, Ardha Chandrasana, is extremely tough for me even with a block. When I add Half Moon Sugar Cane Bow Pose, Ardha Chandra Chapasana… the leg curl and reach to grab my foot is where I really noticed my hamstrings tighten and close to cramping… It was REAL close.

  • One pose felt extremely good, I just don’t remember the name. It was similar to a thread the needle but it was for our legs. Down-dog, knee to nose, down-dog knee to opposite elbow and then straiten leg and raise hand opposite of extended leg. Ill search for it!

  • Excitedly after class, I did Hurdler Pose, Eka Pada Koundinyasana. That was a big accomplishment that I was really happy with. I continue to work on hand stands and preparatory exorcises. My core needs a lot of work. I feel like my balance is returning slowly but surely.

  • Nico - Thank you again for another fantastic class, the work out and your help. Your feedback and constructive criticism is ALWAYS appreciated!

    • It was interesting as today was the first time I noticed change in a few postures. I felt a I could go a little deeper and hold a little longer. I really really enjoy this sequence. It is challenging but at the perfect amount. I was a sweat mess on the mat today, I couldn’t keep it out of my eyes which was frustrating. However, I was reminded numerous times, to let it go.

    • Again, I love the philosophical reminders and how these things we learn in class can be taken with us and applied to our life outside of the hot rooms. What do I need? A questions I need to continually ask myself. As importantly, What can I let go? What am I holding on to? What is no longer serving me and my purpose? These are questions that I am reminded in class to ask myself. ALL. THE. TIME. Not just in class. Let the weight go….

    • Thank you again, Jamie, for another fantastic class!

Infinite Love & Gratitude!


The Corner of 8th & Insanity: Tarot Reading from a friend today…

To me it sounds like you’re right on track. There’s multiple energies that suggest you are en route to your life path.

I like to think of routes as occurring all at the same time. So if I want to adapt multi-dimension-ally, I must accept all routes, so for you to reach TRUE BALANCE…

You must prepare yourself for teaching by embracing the now and just BEING.

You must express gratitude in every facet of your life by remembering you are LOVE. The more you live in that vibration, the easier it is to access others of that consciousness.

You must take on a new PERSPECTIVE by embracing your inner child through imagination and align with your ABUNDANCE.

We have all stifled and controlled our inner child through societal conditioning, using meditation as an access point to allow ourselves to day dream and connect with pure innocence is the tool to heal that skill set.

YOGA: Corepower

  • C1 Class #19

  • 60min

  • Average HR: 86. Max HR: 115

  • Teacher: Jamie

    • Class was great today. It felt extremely calm. I could hear my self breathe the entire class. When the teacher speaks, I listen for something different or new that I can really identify with.

    • I don’t remember the pose, it was probably forward fold in rag doll, Baddha Hasta Uttanasana. She was asking what could we let go. Was I still tense in my neck, my jaw, my shoulders? I was continually asking myself what could I relax the rest of class. It seems every time I find that spot that is tense (particularly my upper back/shoulders or hamstrings), there is usually a deeper stretch if I can relax on the inhale and really let go on that out hale breath. I’ve really been working at getting my hamstrings to loosen up. I definitely feel an overall difference in how my legs feel an body feel.

    • Even days I think I am going to wake up feel incredibly sore or stiff, it is much more mild and my starting point is still relatively flexible compared to how tight I have been in the past.

    • Before class I asked Jamie a couple of things about the heel position in Crescent Lunge, Ashta Chandrasana. I was wondering if you needed to be up on the ball mount of your foot or driving the hell towards the ground. I think what it really came down to was lengthening my stance and really pushing that rear knee away from the ground.

    • Fantastic class as always, Jamie. Thanks you-

Infinite Love & Gratitude!

Health is Wealth: REST DAY - 48/243 #RUN #YOGA

It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

HRV Score: 58
Relative Balance: 10 (Parasympathetic)
Sleep: 9h 21m

Overall morning mood: Sleep was needed. Slept in, opted to take a full on rest day, no Yoga class either. Went out to breakfast, and lounged all day before work. Back at it, with a long cardio day tomorrow.

That’s exactly how it is in yoga. The places where you have the most resistance are actually the places that are going to be the areas of the greatest liberation.

REST DAY!

We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
