Normally when I travel
I don’t make a big deal over it. After all I seem to always be going somewhere mostly for work or research these days.
But right now I am in Costa Rica doing a one week intensive session with an amazing Yogi named Pablo Lucero at a gorgeous place called Rio Chirripo.
If this sounds strange to you well, it sounds strange to me too since a few months ago I could barely touch my toes!
That said Life is for living and everything in its right time. Frankly the importance of body mechanics and posturology has become more important as anti-aging strategies with each passing year.
As I find myself
Growing younger,stronger,and faster and maybe wiser I also find that free range of motion or lack thereof accentuates or limits my strength and how well I control my body in space!
5 hours a day of strength based Yoga is a huge challenge for me.
The answer? The thing that allows me to recuperate? The thing that allows me to break for 3 hours and then dive back in?
Well it’s actually 2 things that each provides very different, but very necessary attributes.
First and foremost is fish oil. I am now taking 6 caps 2x a day. That’s right 12 caps a day total! This takes the aches and inflammation right out of my body and FAST! Without it I wouldn’t have made it out of the first day! I am also certain it makes me more flexible!!! If you’ve taken on a more intense then normal schedule, give it a try for a few days and see what it does for you!
Next is Energy X Maxx, obviously for strength and endurance, both of which I need buckets of during the hours and hours of training I’m doing.
At the end of my day today I have made rapid progress in the hand stand poses, something I’ve always dream of becoming proficient at. I encourage you, especially if you’ve ‘fallen out of it’ to jump back in. There is simply no better time than the present to start planning for your healthy future, and that planning needs to involve physical work, mental clarity, and a renewed focus.
Meanwhile in Costa Rica..
It did something it rarely does this time of year: It rained for hours, and the power has gone out leaving lots of time for simple contemplation. I’m not sure if it’s the Yoga, the rain, or my mega doses of fish oil but it’s been a long time since I’ve had this clarity of thought.
I’ll keep you posted for sure! Thanks for joining me!
