As we begin to understand and feel the connection between the breath and movement, you may notice a rhythm. On an inhale you feel the body’s ribcage and belly expanding. The breath lifts the chest and we elongate the spine. On an exhale, the body compresses, cueing us to support the pelvis and lower back.
Mitra Bar Order ~ I will be placing an order from Mitra Bars this week. If you are interested, I am happy to order one for you. I’ll place the order on Wednesday so please let me know before then. The cost for my newsletter subscribers is 950mxn. After this order the price increases to 1,000mxn to pay for my gas to pick them up in La Paz when they arrive.
This Week’s Classes
(Las clases de esta semana)
In week 3 of QiGong we will continue exploring gentle movement as well as finding our Ujjayi breath. One of the most important pranayama breathing practices in Yoga. Finding this breath while you practice yoga can help you concentrate and override thoughts that could possibly distract you from being in the moment.
Adding gentle, repetitive movements in your day can change your attitude (energy). Not only does it give you time to be present, reset and or restart the day, these movements lubricate the joints and fascia in the body. Here is a 10-minute routine from Forest Rock QiGong.
The second video is a review of Alternating Nostril Breathing from Thursday’s and Saturday’s classes. This is my favorite pranayama breath exercise. It’s nice to use when your are feeling “off”. This breath can calm you down and/or bring you up. The alternating breath evens the energy/chi on both sides of the body. Masculine and feminine (Yin and Yang). Maybe you can try both before next week.
