My cousin Jenny and her son Jake have sent me a doll, Flat Stanley, to visit me for a few weeks in Shanghai.. My job is to host him around town and answer the hard questions "Have you ever seen a dragon?" and "What do dumplings taste like?". Stanley had the pleasure of coming to work with me and here he is, resting and restoring in a nice, long savasana.
Yesterday's flow class was nice. A good group of yogis willing to do work. Our 'peak' pose was revolved half moon. Thought about taking it to the wall for emphasis, but there was a good flow and it felt too disruptive. I realize as both a teacher and student I tend to enter and exit the asanas quickly, and I'm trying out this new slow movement. I think the 'one breath, one movement' training from CPY is engrained into my brain, but I'm learning that breath and movement can look and feel like anything I want it to.
