Yoga Bootcamp 2 Discussion

Yoga Bootcamp 2


HEADS up This is not a yoga class, but the first discussion from the Day Long Yoga Bootcamp I taught in September at ALL That Matters, the largest holistic health center in New England.  This discussion follows the class posted called Bootcamp 1.  You are going to get the entire bootcamp- pretty close.


This discussion is about Intuition and what blocks it.  We first discuss the idea a flow from the book Beyond Boredom and Anxiety.  It defines Flow, what we call presence, as the space in-between boredom and anxiety.   His study included athletes, but applied to all of us.  We want to increase our experience of flow or presence because we get a large hit of intuition, and that always feels great.


At about 11.5 minutes we begin to draw a map of what blocks us from our intuition- this is pretty fun. The map we draw is called the “red donut‿ “almost famous‿ from my Podcast, “A Crash Course in Miracles.‿  This is pretty fun discussion and expands pretty far.  I hope you enjoy it.  Please look in the iTunes window- a picture of a red Donut in included with this post.   If you are looking for more yoga, it’s coming in the next few posts- there may be one more discussion first- maybe not.  Then I have a backlog of classes to post.  Thanks.

Some discussion and demonstration of Half-Moon Pose and class starts in Down Dog at 4 minutes.  Good jokes during Frog near the end.  Two premises during class:  1) From your birth up to this instant does not exist, and, 2) the world and all information you receive from your senses is meaningless until you give it meaning.

How to use these yoga classes

Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga is amazing.  I rave about it here.  I am Certified by Baron Baptiste.

  1. You need to be an experienced beginner.  You will need to know basic yoga poses and safe allignment.
  2. Helpful to have a block and strap (or tie is a good substitute). 
  3. Heat the room.  Ideally, 90 degrees F and 60% humidity (use a humidifier if possible). 
  4. You will sweat alot.  Have water and towels nearby.
  5. If you get tired, dizzy, or find your breath has come apart and you are panting, take child pose, regain Ujayii breath, and rejoin the class.
  6. As with all exercise programs, you do so at your own risk.
  7. To download class, see classes below and right click where it says "pod." Click on "Save Target as."  Put the file where you can find it.

The ultimate book on the practice is Journey into Power, by Baron Baptiste.  This is one of the best selling yoga books ever. This will show every pose and explain safe alignment, the sequence and the philosophy.
