Like a moth to the flame burned by the fire;
My love is blind, can’t you see my desire.
Burning inside you is all that you will ever need.
Give your joints the blood flow they need. Move Slow. Put yourself into a trance.
UJJAYI BREATH: Breath in through your nose with a narrowed back of the throat. What does that mean, almost like you are purposely growling. This kind of breath feeds the fire within. Grip the floor. Push off and pull in. Activate your insides. How much can you suck your belly button in? Become small. How close can you get your nose to your knee? Close your eyes. Bask in the silence of your concentration. Exhale to get even more compact. Become long. From the wall in front of you to the wall behind you, draw your head away from your feet. Spread your fingers away from each other. Everything blooms. Inhale into into that new space you just created.
Move Fast. Your skin will open up and perspire. Your heart will forcefully push blood to all ends of your body. Open your eyes. See how grounded and ready you are to move with intention. Every great practice needs a great warm-up.
