Healing Practice of Mudra

“Mudras are a non-verbal mode of communication and self-expression,
consisting of hand gestures and finger-postures. Mudras are symbolic sign
based finger patterns taking the place, but retaining the efficacy of the spoken
word, and are used to evoke in the mind ideas symbolizing divine powers or the
deities themselves. ”

Yoga Music

Everyone knows I’m a dancer, first, then a yoga strike-a-poser. I haven’t really done much yoga to music and I find that I’m more focused in silence, OHMs, or listening to my breath. I caught myself ‘enjoying the silence’ in the absence of car radio music, but realized I was listening to the wind like when I’m riding my bike, a white noise I didn’t really know I liked. I’ve started becoming aware of the sounds around my work campus. I listen to trees and birds but mainly use my hearing senses to hear the bus and gage how long before I miss it toting my laptop and mega-sized purse with, sometimes with/sans carefully-maneuvered coffee mug. I added Yogi music to spotify account, but not feeling it much. It would please me so much if I could coordinate yoga practice to music I feel makes me breathe, maybe faster than deeper, but I’d work on it.

I found this article: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Yoga Flow To Jumpstart Your Day by Mary Clare Sweet

So I’ve decided to find more musicians and other celebs that are influenced by their yoga life including The Beatles, Mick Jagger, as stated in this article. There really are a lot of followers, maybe because classes are so expensive, celebs generally fall in line with this social bridging, but hopefully it’s to maximize their days on earth. HELL-O! “Here comes the sun” It’s been a hard day’s night, and now I’m feelin’ downward dog. 😉

#17 MY FAVORITE YOGI – I really had no idea that her whole Ray of Light stretch was about the Shanti spiritual realm and yoga practice… maybe had I been doing “yoga” I could have recognized it. So let’s listen and maybe cherish the stretch and “OPEN our HEARTS” to some Shanti, Shanti…

Well, then again… There’s my Gaga in my favorite Bikram pose. Just won’t choose between them, but I know I love Bikram, sweat and tears. They say its competitive and I remember hoping that one day I’d be tapped to join a team, but then I thought – it’s not about that… and when it is, it’s no longer about self.

Here Comes The Sun


Party Mode

Generally, I so out of party mode because of all the events I put on and the holidays, come February I’m all partied out. But I think it’s the weather that has me seeking social events and summer even before the spring. I had a small trip to Arizona, and although I didn’t get to eagle pose on the mountain tops, I got the fever for a sun salutation. 

Well, VJ ThaKidB was downloading his retro videos and came across this one for my dancing mood.  Siouxie & The Banshees Mix – Peek A Boo and Kiss Them For Me Plus there’s all this India motif and lotuses. Kinda makes me wonder if she’s a yogi. Gonna go look her up on Twitter and ask her. 

So along with going to see The Cure, more aging anxiety comes from my highschool wanting to do another reunion. Geez what would we have but old music and telling each other how enlightened we are about our parents, now being one. It is interesting how people moved and changed careers and how we all seemed to have come back. I wonder if except my little lunch group and my library friends will they remember me? I was like one of four Asians in my elementary. Maybe it doesn’t matter cause we all have Facebook and we’ll just talk politics and hate each other all over again. What to do about people you don’t want to be reunited with? I hope it will be all dancing and less networking. If I get on the planning committee, I’ll let you know how it goes. What was your highschool reunion like? Comment below.
