Use it or ‘in-fact’ lose it. Those words couldn’t be more true. All you have to do is wake up in the morning to notice how we are all a little stiffer. And as we age? Well, countless things begin to happen and thats what makes a yoga practice so incredibly important. Yoga, massage, body work of all forms. Just plain movement!
Gil Hedley Ph.D, the anatomy teacher in this video (whom I would give anything to one day study with), really couldn’t put it any simpler. We are continually being covered over with fuzz and need to break through it or well…
Talk about frightening…
I don’t speak very often about an accident I was in once, but I know all about being unable to move, atrophy (muscle wasting), trauma, healing, and yes…being absolutely covered in fuzz! I’m talking about a three year recovery here…life support, the works. (but enough about me. I really couldn’t feel better!)
Thought I’d share this video just in case you know someone who was ‘debating’ going to a Yoga class…don’t debate, just get on your mat!
Forget the mat just get on the floor! Get inside your body. Really inside. Life is just too short to not connect with yourself and break through the fuzz.
So let’s get moving. Let’s do it up and enjoy life to the fullest!
And a special thanks to my most cherished teacher in this city Bernie Clark for bringing Dr.Hedley to my awareness and for sharing so much of his incredible knowledge, wit and wisdom over the years (most recently in my Yin Yoga Teacher training). Bernie is the man. In my opinion Bernie Clark makes the yoga scene in Vancouver what it is. To find out more about Bernie, yin yoga and what he does for this incredible planet of ours go to… www.yinyoga.com and www.mindtheplanet.org
