Sequence from last night's group practice.
theme: FUNdamentals- having fun with the basics
sub theme: small agonies in service to a greater fun and freedom)
alignment emphasis: root to rise; get in the legs to stretch and free the spine
Heart theme- commit to the here and anchor yourself.
relevance: first requirement for having fun is to be present. best way to work against fun is to wish you were somewhere else. (therefore commit to the moment and anchor yourself in it.)
Additional info you need to know: make sure the room is warm if you really want to mimic last night's class. it was a sweatfest. Oh, and when the energy gets a bit low after the serious standing poses, tell some jokes and funny stories.
