Yoga Etiquette – A List We Created

Posted by terrepruitt on March 29, 2017

When I participated in yoga training one of the things we did before we started with the training was to come up with what we thought was a list of “Yoga Etiquette.”  This was a great idea because everyone piped up with what they thought was proper etiquette for a yoga class.  And then, of course, we were to use the list and apply it to our yoga training and the classes we were to be participating in throughout the training.  Most studios will post a list of yoga etiquette on their website or in the studio.  It is helpful to know the different ideas of etiquette for each studio.  Some studios lock the doors so that the class, once it has begun, is not interrupted.  Since not all studios lock the door it is really good to know so you know that if you are 10 minutes late (or whatever their stated time is) you will not be allowed to enter.  That is just an example.  Here is the list that me and my fellow trainees came up with:

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit

 

I would say that most of these are fairly common rules of etiquette, but I will also say that even though they are common they are not commonly practiced.

Some of these might have you questioning the reason, or perhaps wanting more of an explanation.  If so, ask away.  One I will address because I often hear people ask what “appropriate clothing” is and why that matters.  I mean, many people feel that people should be allowed to wear what they want.  Especially now-a-days where clothing and what people wear is such a topic for debate.  But this is a pretty important one especially for teachers.  While someone might feel absolutely comfortable with a low cut top or bottom, when they bend over and all that the other participants in the class can see is either breasts or butt, it is somewhat off-putting and distracting.  Even if the wearer is comfortable exposing his or her chest or bum, yoga class is really not the place to let it all hang out.  Also really tight fitting clothing is not appropriate if it keeps you from moving.  I would say jeans whether loose or tight are not appropriate yoga wear.  The clothing should allow you to move and be comfortable, yet fit properly.  I also think for many yoga classes, layers are a good thing.  When the class first starts it might seem chilly, but then the body warms up.  At the end, shavasana, it could be the time to cover up again.  While the yoga studios that I have seen have not dictated what people wear, the do usually provide guidelines.

Do you agree with all of these rules?  Do you have any to add?  Do you have any you would like to see followed?

Tea Favorites

Posted by terrepruitt on March 17, 2017

Ahh, these are two teas that I love.  I have been drinking more tea than coffee lately.  I am not a morning person so on days I teach Nia I usually just get up in time enough to play with the cats for a bit, figure out what I am teaching in Nia (if I haven’t done it the night before), and get ready and go.  I don’t get up early enough to sit have breakfast and a cup of coffee.  Since on most days I either teach yoga or stretch right after Nia, I don’t get home until after noon.  And if I have errands to run it is even later in the day.  For me drinking coffee that late is just not good – it doesn’t allow me to get to bed in the same day that I got up.  So I drink decaffeinated tea.  There are two of my favorites.  I cannot say whether they actually help with my immune system or stress, but I like them.  Although, my dad had a lot of tea so recently I have actually been drinking some of the ones he had.  One is a Chai, which has caffeine.  And the other is Ginger, which is decaffeinated, and rather nice.  These are still two of my favs.

Tea for my Friday Photo.  Do you have a favorite tea?  What is it?

Foot Cramps – OWW!

Posted by terrepruitt on March 6, 2017

Muscle cramps are awful, especially when you are exercising and totally focused and then you get a cramp.  You could be in a yoga pose, feeling all zen, then the next thing you know – you are in pain.  Muscle cramps seem to affect everyone so know that you are not alone if it is happening to you.  I was told a long time ago that a muscle cramp COULD be from trying to recruit other muscles to do the job.  I cannot remember the specific details of the cramp I would get, but I do remember thinking, “Yeah, that sounds about right because what you are having me do is very difficult for me, so I can see my other muscle trying to do the work.”  It could also be that the limb is in an unusual position and it causes a cramp.  Or it is gripping too hard.  Seems to me that the most common muscle cramp I see is in the foot.

The poses that cause the cramps range from standing balance poses to sitting poses.  So the pose that causes the cramp is not all that common or the same, but a foot cramp seems to be the most common.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitThe first thought that comes to mind when a cramp comes on is, “Are you hydrated?”  Cramps tend to occur when we are dehydrated.  So making sure that we have enough water especially before exercising is very important.

Then there are some nutrients that might be causing the issue if there is a deficiency.  Not enough potassium, calcium or magnesium could be the cause of cramps.  Perhaps having a banana before class could help.

Cramps could also be caused by lack of blood to the muscle or a compressed nerve.  So sometimes just moving the foot can help relieve the muscle contraction.

Movement that might help prevent cramps in the feet would be to point and flex the foot and circle the ankle.  Move the foot with the hands.  Take the foot in both hands and just manipulate it.  Move the foot all ways, bending and straighten out the arch, move each toe – remembering that the foot and ankle are made up of 26 bones and over 100 muscles.  Try to affect them all.  You want to ensure the foot is warmed up and ready to serve you.

The second thought that comes to me when someone has a cramp is: pinch your nose, the septum to be exact – really hard.  Most people look at me really odd.  But I learned that a long time ago when I had a cramp, someone told me to do it.  Recently someone else agreed with having heard that before, too.  I guess when I am having a cramp I pretty much am willing to do anything to make it stop so pinching my nose and causing pain elsewhere sounds good to me, as long as the cramp stops.  And, it usually does for me, I can’t get anyone else to try that method.  🙂

So, the other alternative is to move, as I mentioned before – perhaps get the blood flowing back to the muscle or perhaps relieve the pressure.  Also, massaging the foot might help.  Try relaxing the foot, sometimes that painful contraction happens during a standing balance pose so there are times less gripping of the standing foot can help.

There are things that can be done to hopefully help prevent the foot cramp and to relieve it when it happens.  But if it does happen know that you are not alone.  If it happens ALL the time, then it might be a good idea to see a doctor to make sure there is not an underlying cause.

Do you get cramps when you exercise?  Do you get cramps when doing yoga?  Is there a specific pose that leads to your muscles cramp?

Posted by terrepruitt on February 8, 2017

This is day eight of the Daily 10 Minute Practice, are you still with me?  I am just going to have faith that there are people out there doing it, but they are too busy or shy to comment.  I am keeping the faith that someone is using the calendar (besides me) that I made.  I have a Nia Class and a Yoga Class this morning, but I will comment when I get my 10 minutes in!

Chicken and Vegetables Stir Fry

Posted by terrepruitt on February 1, 2017

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitAs I have said over and over, I tend to cook the same things over and over.  It is so much easier to just cook what you know than to have to do something new.  Half the annoyance with doing something new is shopping for it or making sure that you have it.  But I decided to cook a stir-fry.  Not that I haven’t cooked it before or not that I don’t stir-fry meat and veggies.  But this time I decided to try to give it that stir-fry flavor.  Ya know, I really just wanted to use the cornstarch.  So, last week I made stir-fry chicken and veggies.  My hubby liked it.  I will make it again, but next time I will plan better.

This time I thought I had planned well.  I spent an hour cutting up the meat and making the marinade and cutting up all the veggies BEFORE I went to teach my evening yoga class.  I thought I would come home and cook it up fast.  But it took longer than I thought.  I had meticulously planned on how I was going to cook the veggies.  The idea is to cook the ones that take the longest to cook first.  Now we might not agree on cooking times because I like my mushrooms a little caramelized . . . and my carrots, broccoli, and bell peppers a little raw.

When I cut up the veggies I put them in the bowl in the order in which I would cook them.  So while I was driving home from class I was thinking about throwing the stuff in the pan in the order in which I put them in the bowl.  Then it dawned on me that I had not even thought about when to cook the chicken.  That threw a little wrench in my wok.  😉  I ended up cooking the mushrooms and chicken in one pan while the remaining veggies cooked in another.  It was just faster.  So here is what I did:

_______________________

Chicken and Vegetables Stir Fry

1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
1 + lb chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
garlic salt
1/4 onion
6 mushrooms
1 small baby bok choy
2 bunches of broccoli
4 small carrots
handful of snow peas
1 bell pepper (red)
rice

Mix the cornstarch in the water.  Stir until it is completely dissolved.  In a dish that will fit all the chicken, add the cornstarch water, the soy sauce, the brown sugar, the ginger, garlic powder, vinegar, and the teriyaki.  Mix it up.  Cut the chicken into about bite sized pieces.  You want to cut them up so they are all about the same size so the cook evenly.  Put the chicken in the dish with the marinade.  Put the dish aside.

After you wash the veggies.  Chop the onion.  Slice the mushrooms.  Cut up the baby bok choy.  Chop up the broccoli.  Slice the carrots.  (I just sliced the ones I had because they were small, so they were little rounds).  Slice the snow peas.  Chop up the bell pepper.  Decide which veggie you like cooked the most and start cook them first.

I cooked the mushrooms first.  I put a tablespoon of oil in the pan.  Let it heat.  Then added the onions.  Cook the onions.  Then add the mushrooms.  Add some garlic salt.  When the mushrooms are almost cooked to your liking add the chicken.  Add some of the marinade.

When the chicken is almost half of the way cooked, heat up the olive oil in another pan.  Then when the chicken is half cooked put the bottom part, the white part of the baby bok choy in the pan (the one with out the chicken and mushrooms).  Then add the broccoli.   Add some of the marinade to the pan.  Add the top (the green part) of the baby bok choy.  Let things cook a minute.* Then add the snow peas.  Add more marinade.  Let it cook a bit.  Then add the carrots.  I don’t like cooked bell peppers so I add them last.

*In between the veggies cooking add almost all of the marinade to the chicken and mushrooms.  Save just a little to use for cooking the veggies.

Make sure you cook the marinade with the chicken or vegetables.  Since the raw chicken was sitting in it you don’t want to pour it over your rice without it having been cooked.

Once everything is cooked to your liking serve it over rice.

_______________________

My pictures show all the veggies in two bowls, that is because I prepped everything, then had to leave to teach yoga.  I would not have piled everything in bowls if I were just prepping and cooking.

I loved all the veggies in this dish.  This might not be a typical stir fry.  Not even sure what that is.  But it was good.  We will be having it again!

What do you think?  Does it sound good?  Does it look good?

Happy New Year – 2017

Posted by terrepruitt on January 2, 2017

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitSo, Happy New Year, huh?  Yeah!  Let’s just make it a good year.  There is always going to be stuff going on that we can focus on to make it a “bad” year, but let’s not focus on that.  Let’s just decide it is going to be a good year and make it be a good year.  Well, again, I have that whole “thing” with years and days and the like being “bad” or “good”.  They actually just are.  It is the moments IN the year/day.  The moments that make up the year that one might label “bad” or “good”, but to label the entire length of time bad or good, is just not something I do.  So . . . let’s make a lot of fun, exciting, smile-worthy moments in 2017!

We shall have so many smile-worthy moments that when something happens that makes us sad or upset we will be able to face it better.  We can make it through and not have it turn us into permanent mush.  I mean sometimes things will happen in life where you might need to take some time to be “mush” – not doing anything, and just process the situation.  But I don’t think it is good to stay mush.  There are too many good things in life to just be a pile of mush.  So, if there are a lot of experiences that have created smiles AND things to come that will create smiles it is easier to get through the mush times.

I’ve had a week off from my Nia, yoga, and stretch classes and I am ready to get back to them.  We are going to be moving and grooving into 2017.  We had a nice rain to help us get a clean start in the new year.  It is looking good!

 

I hope you had a nice Holiday Season.

 

I am wishing you a very

Happy, Healthy, and

WONDERFUL 2017!

 

Make it so!

Withdrawal Of The Senses – WHAT?

Posted by terrepruitt on October 19, 2016

In January I started writing about the Eight Limbs of Yoga with a post called More To Yoga Than Just Asana.  They are 1-The yamas, 2-The niyamas, 3-The asana, 4- Pranayama, 5-Pratyahara, 6-Dharana, 7-Dhyana, and 8-Samadhi.  I finished posting briefly about the niyamas in April.  So it has been six months since I visited any of the limbs on my blog.  I thought I would pick up with the fifth limb – pratyahara and share a what I understand about it.  As I have said before, all the limbs and their smaller branches (like the yamas and the niyamas) can (and do) have volumes written about them.  I am only scratching the surface AND only exposing what I understand them to be at this time.  Pratyahara is the withdrawal of the senses.

That is what I have heard it described as.  I never really understood or agreed with the “withdrawal of the senses”.  The initial “scratch on the surface” was not enough for me to get on board with this limb.  As I looked briefly into the meaning or the idea, I think I understand it a bit more.  Now I can totally relate.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitThe books I used to help me put it in perspective and allow me to understand it in a way to actually apply it are B.K.S. Iyengar’s The Path To Holistic Health, T.K.V. Desikachar’s The Heart of Yoga and B.K.S. Iyengar’s Light On Pranayama.

In The Path To Holistic Health B.K.S. Iyengar said, “When the senses withdraw from objects of desire, the mind is released from the power of the senses, which in turn become passive.  Then the mind turns inward and is set free from the tyranny of the senses.  This is pratyahara.”  Ok, I feel that put me on the path to understanding.  Him saying “withdraw from objects of desire,” made me think, “Ok, we are not just shutting off our senses.”  I made me think that it is more of a form of concentration than a form of torture.

Then in The Heart of Yoga, I understand T.K.V. Desikachar’s to be saying that we might sense things but we ignore them, but we don’t really do it necessarily as a conscious practice, but because we are in the moment.  We are attuned to what we are doing.  We are focused. To me his explanation made a lot of sense because he was saying that our senses are not entirely withdrawn and shut off . . . we are just focused.  As an example, in an asana practice we are going to be aware of our body and sensing where our arms are in relation to our hips, but we are not going to be thinking about how we need to apply lotion to our arms or how our hips sway when we do the latest dance move.  While lotion and dance moves might not be examples of “objects of desire” they are examples of thoughts that distract us from the asana practice.

It also sounded to me like T.K.V. Desikachar was saying that we can – and more than likely have experienced Pratyahara before.  It could be when we are so focused on something we don’t realize what is going on around us.  Perhaps on the phone and not noticing someone is trying to get our attention.  Perhaps we turn everything out when focused on a task such as cooking, knitting, sewing, writing, drawing, etc.  Where the senses are withdrawn because the focus and concentration is so intense.  This goes along with T.K.V. Desikachar saying that pratyahara comes naturally.

I’m thinking that not having it be a conscious practice might depend on what you are doing.  I could be at first we might have to really focus on concentrating, but eventually it will just become a part of our practice.  I think the more we practice the better we can achieve pratyahara.  Light on Pranayama described pratyahara as quieting the mind saying that pranayama and pratyahara help with that.  I know that when I focus on my breathing it helps quiet the mind and I feel more focused.

So now that I feel that pratyachara is not just withdrawal of the senses to all that is around you, I feel that I could actually be practicing and doing this limb of yoga.  At this point it helps when I am in a class or following a yoga application and not just doing yoga on my own.  We all know how distracted I get when I do that.

How about you?  How well do you practice pratyahara when doing yoga?  Can you think of a time when you have experienced pratyahara when not doing yoga?

Pan Fried Gnocchi

Posted by terrepruitt on October 12, 2016

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitWhen I get home at noon on Wednesday it seems like the day goes by really quick.  I am working on my Nia routine for class the next day.  I am working on the stretch routine for class the next day.  I might have to put together something for yoga for the class the next day.  Plus I have a blog post I would like to write.  So I just don’t have a lot of time to think about dinner.  Well, tonight was one of those nights.  I hadn’t even really thought about a blog post during the day.  And I was making up dinner as I was cooking it.  I really didn’t know what I was doing.  Cooking the steak we have is always an adventure.  I hadn’t really thought about a blog post as I was flying by the seat of my pants as I cooked dinner.  At the last minute I thought well this might work and I snapped a couple of pictures.  I didn’t really know how I was going to cook the meat or gnocchi.  I had taken out two packages of meat.  I thought each one was a steak, but it turned out each one was two cuts of meat.  Yay.  Now, we have dinner for tomorrow, well at least the meat part.  I always try to have some gnocchi in the freezer, I thought it would go well with the steak.  But I wanted it different – normally I just boil it.  I thought after I boiled it I could pan fry it, to give it that crispy brown.  My friend taught me that.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitI have a friend who used to make . . . now I don’t even remember what type of gnocchi was . . . I think it was butternut squash gnocchi.  Perhaps it was sweet potato.  I didn’t even like gnocchi until she gave it to me.  She apologize when she gave it to me because “it didn’t turn out right” and she recommended pan frying it.  I thought, “Ok, whatever.”  It wasn’t potato gnocchi so I thought it must be better cooked differently.  Turns out ALL gnocchi is better cooked that way.  But her gnocchi was THE BEST.  It was sooooooo yummy.

Most gnocchi has to be boiled first and then it can be pan fried.  Well, that is the way I like it best.  With a little bit of browning on it.  I had never done such a large batch before and some of it broke up and got a little mushy, but then the mush browned so I was ok with that.  I threw in some kale and it rounded off our steak great.

Do you like potato gnocchi?  Do you like it boiled? Have you ever tried browning it?

First Friday Photo

Posted by terrepruitt on October 7, 2016

In January of 2016, I decided to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Since 2009, I had been posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  I thought, since I didn’t teach Nia or yoga on Mondays or Wednesdays it would be easier.  Well, you might have noticed I have missed posting a few times.  Sometimes I am busy with something else or I can’t think of anything to post.  The latter is the really big one.  I can sometimes rush out a post when I am busy but I know what I am going to write about.  But sometimes I know what I want to write about but the research or the pictures end up taking longer than I thought . . . so I end up not posting.  A couple of times I had written the post and I planned on posting it after I read through it one more time, then I have gone about my evening and forgotten to publish the post.  All types of things can come up.  Having no idea of what to write is a deal breaker, though.  Can’t write when you have no idea!  Anyway . . . Fridays seem to be the most difficult.  So I am going to change my Friday posts.  I am going to post a photo on Friday.  I’m gonna call it Friday Photo.  Not original, I know, neither in name or format, but I often have photos I want to share, but they don’t have a story, it could be that I just like it.

A picture on Friday.  These will not be works or art, by any means.  They will just be a photo of whatever I want.  So just like my blog posts where I post pictures . . . . you will see a lot of our cats, a lot of flowers, a lot of birds, and just ordinary things.  I am just gonna see how it goes.

The photos might even be from years past.  It just depends.

Thank you for hanging out with me for a moment on Friday.  Here is my first Friday Photo:
