Reach for the sun to energize!
The 3rd day of the #MidStateFair, Friday July 20th, has Mariachi strolling the Quad throughout the day at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm and 7:30pm. The night ends with two different DJs at 9pm playing both country and 80s hits to dance to. Fun is multicultural, as is the practice of yoga. (btw: classes with Mary at EarthTones are offered in Spanish and English!) .
So, how does yoga improve our dancing experience? First, by improving our connection to our own bodies. We feel more confident because we feel strong and fluid in our movements. Another case is that through the practice of Pranayama (breathwork) we can breathe through any nerves or anxieties we may have around letting loose in public and allow ourselves some fun! .
If you can't fit in a full Salutation, try this to oxygenate and energize: Stand stable with feet hip width apart. Press the feet down onto the ground and take a nice big inhalation as you slowly reach your arms out and up above your head - palms facing each other (a little bent knee is encouraged!). Exhale and drop the shoulders down away from the ears. Inhale and lift the chest up to the sky as you press the feet down- making your body long and strong. On the exhale, slowly and with control, lower the arms out & down to your sides. Repeat. Sounds simple, but it's very effective!
