Vinyasa (all levels)

Full of heart. What is heart? Bend and breath. Thread the needle. Lift your navel, engage your Core. Strong leg. Heart lifted to the sky. What it is heart? Are we being literal, symbolic, or both? Both I'd guess. Yoga is full of double entendres and cosmic allusions. Use your lower back. Don't use your lower back. Use your core strength. Take the strain off of your lower back. Breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. Ahhhhhhhhhhgh. Engage your belly. Sit back on your Sit Bones. Warrior I, Warrior II, Warrior III. Sounds like an awful movie franchise, with a lead actor who went on to brief stardom in a bigger budget, but still bad movie that didn't do particularly well and then descended to obscurity. He didn't star in the execrable Warrior IV, or the TV series named just Warrior, which actually turned out to be pretty good in a campy kind of way. Outside, babies scream, ambulances scream, people drink and slouch. In here, we breathe, live in our bodies and drip drip drip sweat. Do I want to drink tonight, after class? What about this teacher? She totally likes to party, despite all this chanting and purity stuff. I guarantee it.
