YoGeek Chillout after a Setback: Back to Basics and Breathe

So I had it all planned, this weekend I was going to get lots of footage for this show! Lots of it, thought it would be easy.

Not so much 😦

I was so disappointed and quite defeated, but really that’s what it’s all about, allowing yourself to step in fully and whatever happens is part of your yoga. How do we then make the best choice, to the best of our ability. The time that I had at the studio was truly almost over and I felt that nothing that I had shot was remotely what I wanted to offer. It was at that moment that I decided that I just needed to breathe and chill out, so here it is…5 min of movement a little bit of quiet time to pay attention to the basics and breathe.

Once I opened my eyes and once again stepped into the world, I felt so much better, knowing that perfection lies in the imperfection, and that it’s there that we are given the Grace to be the best that we can, all the time, even if it’s not what you imagined it would be!

Check it out!

  1. I know it’s frustrating when you can’t get the things done the way you want them. But it’s also a learning experience.

    When I speak for myself I prefer a ‘quick and dirty guerilla-style’ video to a nice and clean ‘überdirected’ one.

    So I think you needn’t to be very perfectionistic about it. Guerilla-style has also its charm.

  2. I’m kinda slow sometiimes. Earlier I wanted to tell you that was a cool video, but I saw it said no comments. For some reason I thought you weren’t accepting comments. LOL! Obviously what it meant was you didn’t have any comments yet. Duh!
    My friend that I’m triaining is going to show me a little Yoga. I’m not ready for Pilates yet. Nothing wrong with them other than the name is a little to feminine for me.

  3. Hey Elsie, keep going girl. The way of the YoGeek is not always easy, but it is rewarded with many new findings. I wish I knew more about video to help you but I don’t and I’m starting to learn. So apply our Yoga principles and give us your best YoGeek, that will be good for most of us.

    I must admit, I feel about exercise and health and all that , the way you do about getting some of this technology. The difference is that you are doing something to work towards progress not perfection. I haven’t done that yet cause I feel the road is so long I’ll never get there. you inspire me with your willingness to try Elsie. It tells me that if I’m willing maybe I can grow (or is that shrink) too.

  4. Victor!!!! You know you are the one that helped me believe that I could! In some way, you ‘created’ the YoGeek 😀
    I’m trying in the same way that you are. I believe that it’s the little things that make the difference. I’m actually not looking for a finished answer, nor do I want it to be that way. The en devour is the key, sometimes it’ll be easy and sometimes not, but are we still willing to step in, growing and shrinking is the way of the world 🙂

  5. Elsie, you already know how much I love this video. In part because you took my cerebral palsy into consideration when you put it together. I have watched it so many times it’s pretty much committed to memory now. But I feel I still get more out of it when I follow along with you.

    Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.
