[Sound on] Caught in the act of weirdness. Making up lyrics on the spot to sing to the cats is my kinda man 😻 The only thing more Hampden than this was when I took the other feline for an afternoon walk.
I bent down to pick my laptop up this morning and out my back went. Just a small drop-out (if you’ve experienced this you know what I mean by “drop-out”). Frustrating because I’ve worked my ass off to get back to a fuller and more pain-free range of motion. And no big deal because I’ve worked my ass off and I’ll bounce back fast. To help healthify my back, I’ve changed my yoga practice drastically. I’d call it more of a movement practice now. Happy hips means happy back. Twisting to my current max range of motion while engaging bandhas feels bueno. Movement inside of poses is fucking delicious. Even when it’s not at its peak, my body is healthy, supple, strong and moving.
On Sunday I got to teach 3 of my favorite things to a group of incredible people in a gorgeous store filled with plants: meditation, breathwork and movement. Thanks to @bwillowbmo for inviting me and @popupyogabaltimore to practice in your space! Bringing some of all this to you (minus the plants. frown.) tonight at @yogaworks_baltimore midtown 8:30pm.
THE LAST INKTOBER 😱
Inktober 31. Slice. Words by @_chestnutsroasting_. Art by @eyeballfortress.
Severed clean off yet
Life force still drives forth
Without sunlight, air or a
Thrills and chills and witchy ghouls
Circle your feet as you twitch and move
Ribs meet knees you pound and wail
And shake your head and dig your nails
Through rubber mat to spaghetti floor
You gasp and scream and cry for more:
“Twisting my body into a fright
Is my only freedom on Halloween night
Free me, release me, I’m caught on your lure
Give me all the yoga my soul can endure.” 🔮
Tonight 8:30pm, @yogaworks_baltimore Midtown, $7 bones. Be there. What will you wear?
