August Break: A Picture Is Worth a 1000 Words + A Dose of Uddiyana
Posted on 02 August 2011
is there anything more luscious than cat/cow when you've been writing all day?
my cat/cow revealed
as with most things, i do cat/cow differently than most... inhale/arch back into a back bend; exhale/round back like a halloween cat, pause, stay empty of breath, and pull belly back toward spine into uddiyana. hold for as long as comfortable - maybe a 10-second count. repeat.
break it down for me, doc
uddiyana means "soaring." is there a more apt kriya for august? a kriya is a cleansing practice in yoga, or as defined by julia cameron of the artist's way
, a spiritual earthquake that shakes stuck things loose.
thank you, august break, for a 1000 words
here's the new twist on a picture being worth a thousand words - i'm writing a thousand words of my book by taking a break from blogging. love it.
delightful to be present to the month of august through a camera lens! photo by madeleine tilin
