I was so delighted to get to play with many of the same people. There were a few new faces but mostly a continuation.
I had a big morning. I decided to lay low, sleep in, make some breakfast and go the beach instead of join a pal for a hike. The shift in routine and the guidance to take it easy allowed a giant insight to come in. A world rocker of one. But I had the capacity to put it to the "side" and prepare for the workshop.
The plan was to create some stability in the legs, meld it with the easy in the spine that we had discovered and move towards drop backs. I found a little more of my voice today. But still, I am rusty with sharing succintly in this format. I had a great time this weekend. I hope they will have me back.

Warrior 1 Geek Out
(I was delighted with this cuz several peeps shared what they have found out and discovered. There were questions. And there was recognition that there is no one way).
I was using Warrior 1 to play with those leg tension patterns and attention to the spine in a more complex place than supine or sitting in prep for dropping back. Grounding through the legs and allowing the spine to feel watery.
