What I actually taught and Milo goes to the lake

What I actually taught and Milo goes to the lake


Here are a couple scenes from our day trip out to Lake Travis.  Milo had a great time, though it was a little rough going for his paws on the way down and the way up.  He was so so happy to get in the water.  Water was beautiful and clear and it was super fun. A great reentry day from the majestic beauty of Colorado.


It was also  really fun to be back in class. That sequence  was  a bit ambitious so I cut a few things but the B1 and Parivritta Trik work  was a great set up for  Parsva Sirasana.

and the  Eka Pada Sarvangasanas went well also.

The only thing I’d add is a little abd work.

Anywhere  here’s what I actually taught,

Urdhava Baddhanguliasana in Swastikasana


Bharadvajasana 1



AMS  Palms on  Bricks   (I’ve found this variation helpful for getting more opening in my back and armpits)

Back in Austin – Stay Cation Begins

Back in Austin – Stay Cation Begins

Hello blog world,

We had a really lovely vacation and I’m also happy to be home.  One of the many benefits of moving to Austin.  I’m not sad to come home. (The view  is not quite as inspiring, but I was inspired by the outdoor time to do more things outdoors despite the heat and to get my cardio resolution upto a higher level,  I’ve gone from none to some.  Now, some to daily and vigorous)

Also it helps that   we have a few days of stay cation in  front of us, which is also  nice.   Okay, I have some work to do,  but I’m keeping the stay-cation frame of mind.

I definitely can tell a difference in my frame of mind  having worked all of June, the a week of philosophy conferencing  (#academicproblems)  so I want to make sure I do feel like I’ve had some time to think and regroup before  the semester starts again.    (For me  classes start with Plato seminar four weeks from yesterday).

Also,  Junior  2 assessment is right around the corner.   Seven weeks from  today.

Today’s  class  sequence is based on  a junior 2 assessment question.   Write a sequence that develops inversions and variations  I am assuming it means the variations which are on my syllabus

And also draws upon  Patricia’s exhortation to build practice around inversions to increase stabilization. (I wrote about this about  in  yoga for troubled times).

So the inversions and  variations that are on the Junior 2  syllabus  are.

Adho Mukha Vrksasana  Palms forward.

Eka Pada Sirsasana

Parsva Sirsasana

Eka Pada Sarvangasana foot all the way to the floor.

I’m just going to use poses on the syllabi rather than parts of  poses and poses not on the syllabi.
