Reeelaxxxxx… Power comes through repose. Indeed.
Who has ever studied martial arts? Or taken up cycling? Or played tennis? Or any sport? Relax the shoulders. Relax your neck, back, relax your arms. I briefly studied Shoto Kan Karata but don’t worry. I am no Karata warrior! I am more like a ballerina in a white gi with a green belt! “Relax,” the sensei would repeat over and over. Relaxing gives you the speed and power. And cycling? Relaxation helps slow down fatique. “Get those shoulders down, Marcia.” Pant, pant, huff, puff. “They are down” I’d yell back to my husband as he’d coach me. Relax.
And so it is here, at MKMMA. “Power comes through repose!” Relax during the sit. Actually, I focus on relaxing any time I sit. “Get those shoulders down,” I repeat to myself. Power comes through repose.
Enjoy the Superbowl everyone!! And reelaxxx!
