Virtual Yoga Teaching

I met Mr. Nick Schmidt when I commented on his blog post for Techie Diva. By ‘met’ I mean he contacted me after the posting and we kinda began to email back and forth, forging a virtual friendship. As we continued our conversation, videos and getting in shape surfaced, and I thought how cool would it be to send him a video so that he could do yoga! He’d never done yoga before. So I kinda got something simple done, it was really meant just for him, so he could feel comfy at doing the practice. I thought, how cool would it be if he could send me a corresponding video, so that I could watch him to see how he was doing. Well, lo and behold, he did such a good job at it! So good in fact that I gave him permission to use the video on his site and all. Here it is. check it out.

Yep. The mighty Nick got my name wrong. That kinda sucked. He called me Elise. I have nothing against all the fantastic Elise’s out there, but my name is Elsie. Kinda gave Mr. Nick some crap about that, but hey, what’s done is done, and I know that his heart was in the right place ๐Ÿ™‚ enjoy the video!

I’m officially a YoGeek!

So Dave Malkoff from CBS2 news showed up to my class to interview me about online fitness ๐Ÿ™‚ How cool is that? Well, we had a great time chatting and I showed him how I did my stuff (podcasting and the like), with my MacBook, my iRiver, and my lav mic. He and his camera man then filmed about 45 min of my yoga class at Swerve Studio. Since he asked me to, I proceeded to record my class, the way that I would normally do it, for my weekly yoga podcast. So there I was now, with 2 mics on me, one, my normal awkward way (with my iRiver on my arm and the lav mic clipped to the front of my top) and then a huge mic box thing inside the pocket of my lovely still crop pants, and another fancy lav mic wrapped around the back of me, and onto the right strap of my top.

Kinda hard to ignore

Still harder to ignore, the fact that the mighty camera man (he was great!) wove in and out of my students and myself carrying this heavy, enormous camera, as if it was a little camcorder. For some reason there was a moment where I actually sort of forgot he was there, as much as one can, and the class became ‘my class’ again. All I thought of was how to help my students stay comfortable being watched. I think that’s one of the hardest things to do, so the way to do it was to simply guide them there. I did my best. This class will be Episode 39, so that y’all can take the class along with them!

Dave told me that I was going to be on the 6 o’clock news ๐Ÿ™‚ yeay!!!!

Yea, not so much…as fate would have it some loon decided to make the police chase him all over the freeways, right at 6pm, so I was not on tv ๐Ÿ˜ฆ the loon was…or at least until today. Don’t know when the story aired but now the video is up on the website, you can check it out HERE

and check out the corresponding Blog post by Dave , the following is just the beginning of the post, but it’s my favorite part!

Who is the bigger computer geek? Comic Book Guy or the woman stretching next to him?

Don’t judge a Comic Book Guy by his cover… or Elsie Escobar by her perfect yoga pose. They’re both about as nerdy!

Aaaahhh, finally, to be compared to Comic Book Guy ***sigh*** the YoGeek has truly arrived!

Make sure you check out his full post.ย  There’s a link to a very interesting article about online fitness!

Knees in the Mirror: Alignment and Engagement

Can we bring our knees to anatomical neutral? Can we in very simple ways begin ( for this is just the beginning), to engage in new ways to align our bodies.
Using your muscles and making active choices with them can help stabilize and strengthen joints and connective tissue.

Just a simple video to delve into the most basic anatomical alignment for the knees.

Please let me know what you think!
