Thank you, Amy--it went by in a blink even though I was sweating by the end of it, so I definitely felt it. I did this at the end of a long day and with a headache; by the end of the class I was energized and no headache left. So glad there's another challenge available.
I'm going to commit to writing down each of my observations and/or epiphanies after each class in this challenge so I can refer back, when needed. The following are my 'take a ways' from BREATH & ENDURANCE: 1) The idea of 'expansion from within.' Why have I never thought about it like this before?? LOVED the diaphragm imagery using the toy. 2) The recognition that I have NOT been breathing "all the time consciously with commitment" in my Pilates practice! I've been avoiding the #1 principle out of convenience. 3) My breath should go to where I want more freedom in my body. Brilliant! Amy, you mentioned all 3 in single leg circles, & it was like a lightbulb went off in my head. Thank you, dearest friend!! What a gift you're giving us.
