Notes to My Student…

July 14, 2009

These are notes I made last night before teaching at 6am this morning…

  • Focus on powerful, steady, forward gaze. 
  • Tune into internal self: Notice what’s happening within the body, breathe into those areas and release tension. 
  • Let the outside world slip away and allow yourself to get lost in the practice.
  • Steady, deep breaths guide the movement: Flow smoothly from one pose to the next, creating a moving meditation out of the postures.  Each breath corresponds to a movement or subtle adjustment within the body.
  • Return attention to the breath if the mind starts to wander.  Come back inside.

Can you tell I wanted to create a mind-quieting, steady and deeply internal class?  The soundtrack was lots of the quieter songs from Madonna’s Ray of Light, Zero 7, Portishead and Air.  Class ended with a long savasana (corpse pose) and guided relaxation.
