Loved this. Love the language you use to create new ways of envisioning/embodying. I am also very stoked that I'll get to teach again in person by the end of the month!! I am planning to riff on the themes you've had us play with in this wonderful season!
Kate M Excited for you— getting back to teaching in person was one of the sweetest things... Let me know how the riffing goes! I love reading your insights here and am thrilled this practice resonated with you! Thanks so very much for your generosity of spirit!
This was my very first time catching a little air in an arm balance since my last pregnancy! (which was four years ago, so a long time, lol). I've been dealing with some abdominal separation from my pregnancies, so I haven't felt strong enough to even attempt an arm balance. But the way you brought us into it was perfect. And the concept of exploring the pose is what gave me the courage to feel like I could go for it and get that final lift off! Lovely class, thank you, Sadia!
Did this last night and calves and quads were sore on the morning group ride... My knees and toes can't handle the first asanas, and I enjoyed watching the Jedi side-crow wizardry. Getting out of balance perked up my mood post-practice. I am not good at math either, but your fractions were off. Loved that comment about relaxing the mind out of tension, and I recalled your first season and the cool way you emphasized enjoying the spacing in between the destination. Warmly, David
