STRETCH YOUR HOTNESS
JULY 25, 2010:
Super Duper Namaste! Great article in Women's Health caught my eye: "Bend to get more buff. In a study reported in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, volunteers followed a strength-training regimen three times a week, with half of them adding two stretching sessions to their routines. After eight weeks, the flexible group almost tripled their muscle strength. Stretching like lifting, causes tiny tears in your muscle; as your body repairs them, the tissue becomes stronger, says study coauthor Jason Winchester PhD, of George Mason University. Add 10 minutes of stretching to your routine today!"
Thought you'd like to know that. Flexibility makes us stronger! (AND MORE HOT!)
I am happily teaching all week then I am off in August to attend Vinyasa Teacher Training out West and enjoy a wedding of friends and take a holiday. Hope to see you all on the mat before I go! Big, big love and infinite Gratitude! Silvia

LIVING LIFE OVER AGAIN - A FAVE POEM
"If I had to live my life over again
I'd try to make more mistakes next time.
I'd try not to be so damn perfect.
I'd relax more, I'd limber up.
I'd be sillier than I've been on this trip.
In fact I know very few things that I would take quite so seriously.
I'd be crazier and I'd certainly be less hygenic.
I'd take more chances, I'd take more trips.
I'd climb more mountains, I'd swim more rivers.
I'd watch more sunsets, I'd burn more gasoline.
I'd eat more ice cream and fewer beans.
I'd have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.
You see, I was one of those people who lived prophylactically
and sanely and sensibly, hour after hour and day after day.
Oh, that doesn't mean I didn't have my moment... and if I had it
all over to do, I'd have more of those moments.
In fact I would try to have nothing but wonderful
moments, side by side.
I was one of those people who never went anywhere
without a thermometer, hot water bottle, a gargle,
a rain coat, and a parachute.
If I had it to do all over again, I'd travel lighter next time.
If I had my life to live over again, I'd start barefoot
earlier in the Spring and I'd stay that way later in the Fall.
I'd play hooky a little more.
I'd ride more merry-go-rounds.
I'd smell more flowers.
I'd hug more children.
I'd tell more people that I loved them.
If I had my life to live over again.
But you see, I don't."
