Hibernation

Sleep is elusive to many of us normal neurotic urbanites. It may even require artificial pharmaceutical inducement . Or something better health-wise, some vigorous biological function to relax the nervous system. Wink, wink.

Whatever it takes. Now’s the time to indulge those extra Zzzs. Roll over, go back to sleep. Don’t even set the alarm unless absolutely necessary. Sleep is what your body needs to stand up against the invading horde of pathogens.

Make like a bear and hibernate. It’s your best defense.  Fortify your immune system with sleep and rest. And after this weekend is the perfect time because there’s no classes next week.

Don’t sleep in this Saturday morning, remember. Classes are on. Friday Yoga celebrates the end of Dry January, hallelujah, then Saturday Abs. The next class after the break is February 11, 14, 15.

Stay healthy, Pietro

Finding Adventure Within Structure

Complacency is the real enemy. Complacency in terms of fidelity and variety of your exercise regime.

It’s always easier to roll over, and go back to sleep. Or get stuck in a specific routine long-past its expiry date.  It’s called plateauing. Fossilizing into a dead thing rather than re-creating yourself into a living growing organism.

That’s why its always a good idea to incorporate a new pose into every Yoga Class, every Abs Class. Or an experimental movement along with the usual go-tos. You adopt a pattern. And then the pattern begins to morph

This spirit of adventure keeps us young. This is how we stay interesting to our children. Not by becoming habituated and predictable in our thinking, diet, political opinions, whatever it is.

Unlock your potential. It starts with the body. But it includes the mind. See you at class.

No classes the first week in February. So get them in while you can.

Ciao, Pietro
