I got to Park City around 2:15 yesterday, checked into my condo and made my way down to the training. John was working yesterday afternoon with people who have back pain. And the guiding principle for this is establish curves and then stretch. And in order to establish curves guess what? THE THIGHS MUST GO BACK. Inner Spiral helps establish curves and outer spiral helps give the length. Over and over again. There are certainly other nuances but I always love to see him just apply the basics to chronic pain and to get immediate results with people who have absolutely no yoga experience. It is so inspiring.
I had dinner last night with Sundari at Whole Foods. We had a most excellent yoga-geek discussion and "gossip" session and then I came home, put my groceries away, called Kelly and went to bed. I slept great- as I was pretty tired from our late night out Sunday, my early morning on Monday, a day of travel and an afternoon of getting my psoas worked on (which I definitely needed.)
I woke up pretty refreshed--grateful for the time difference which grants me an extra hour in the morning and put my kicharee on to cook while I did my morning practices. Now, having drank my tea and checked in here, I need to jump in the shower and then get to the venue. Big day ahead.
