The Work vs The Job

I don’t go to Work to do my Job. I do my Job so I can go to Work.

Imagine for a moment I were a bus driver. It would be my Job to keep the bus clean, safe, gassed up, on schedule, and going in the right direction.

By doing my Job, that allows me to do my Work. The part I would do for free. The reason I wanted to be a bus driver in the first place.

To fill my bus with people and help take them where they want to go.

So do the Job of getting in the room. Make the time, stay hydrated, get yourself a mat, and show up.

Then you can do the real Work. The reason you do it in the first place.


Posture Tip-Awkward 1st Part

img_8755Sit down until your hips touch the chair.

Everybody has a slightly different chair depending on their anatomy, mostly the length of the femur bone.

Sit too low, and you cannot lift your chest up and bring your upper body back , so that your total spine is backward bending.

To go deeper in the posture you aren’t trying to sit lower. You are trying to lean back and fall down backwards.

 

Routine

The best dancers don’t start off dancing.

They start by working a routine, step by step, mastering each move with pinpoint exactness until each step is practiced and precise.

Only then, with body conditioned and mind relaxed, can a dancer truly dance.

Posture Tip – Awkward

Stand up on your toes maximum like a ballerina! Mhmm…

That photo is me showing off. #lookatme

I can only do it for about 8 seconds. It’s not sustainable, and it’s not how I practice in class. It’s exaggeration. It’s exercise.

Don’t do so much Yoga that you are no longer doing Yoga.
