Help of Ojai, Wednesday 1:30

For the first time I arrived without a plan. Tucker came to observe. So I said a prayer asking for guidance and did my best to follow it. When I got the "green light" to share Uddiyana Bandha, I allowed the rest of the class to be familiar cuz it seemed like one super weird new thing was enough.

This was super experimental. It is what I have been teaching in all my classes and was guided to share in this setting as well. Tucker pointed out that it could be problematic for high blood pressure and eye problems cuz of the increase in pressure. But most of the peeps seemed to get it! They experienced the "zing" and high of the effect which is super cool.)
