2 Privates Today

I learn so much working 1:1 with peeps.  It's a mediation practice cuz it is so obvious when you are not totally present, which is why they are still somewhat exhausting for me. I have not totally relaxed and I still try to hard.  Practice practice practice.

My 10:30 arrived tired and down on herself cuz she had started smoking again so we focused on the breath.

Creating Breathing Room
Supine heart opener over a bolster with specific breath focus
Sukhasana with Easy Side Bending Play
Easy Janu Sirsasana Twisting
Upavishta Konasana
Revolved Head to Knee Pose

Breath of Fire
Deep Breaths with Kumbhaka 

(This was such an interesting moment cuz she guided us to the breath of fire and then when we came to sitting, she was so dialed in, it did not feel right to move her.  My mind kept trying to convince me that we should do more asana, but my body and feeling was to allow us to simply sit in the effects.  This was a very cool learning moment)

Plank/DownDog Play
Cobra Rolling from 1/2 Dog
Bridge x 3
Eye of the Needle
Eye of the Needle Twist

The 1:00 showed up with a very specific mischief in her leg.  This was a bit trickier, cuz my sense was that there was nothing really much to do for the leg, so much as create a sense of safety for her to relax.  But we worked on the leg and I tried to do the other.

Releasing the Grip

Thai Yoga Massage on her legs
I opened the sen lines of her feet and legs

And then we messed around with the following.  I had her walk around after each to see if she could sense any shift.
