Here is another approach……..Ilive a very structured life, not necessarily ridged, but has a lot of structure.
So, the morning ritual is the same very day with the notable exception that I do vary the yoga practice….sometimes it is a long session from the Monday video, or it may be one of the shorter videos on a specific activity (i.e. hip exercises come to mind).
I rarely do any functional exercises unless they are incorporated into the yoga practice. The Cmdr.’s Fit Warrior comes to mind on that topic.
My focus is the same everyday…..flexibility in mind and body…sounds somewhat contradictory from a guy who appears to be rigid, but, as I stated, rigidity is not a part of my real life. I use the morning ritual to ‘get into the zone’ for the day, if possible.
The evening ritual is short and focuses on stretching the hip flexors, primarily. If th morning takes 40 minutes, the.evening is about 15, at best.
During the evening portion, I ask myself if I ‘made it through the day’ with the flexibility i was developing in the O dark/30.
During the daylight hours, when I am away from the office, I do try to follow the Masters
I hv used the go classes as part of my morning ritual, both breathing is a nimportantpart of the program. It is only within recent weeks that i am understanding how the breathe works with the poses. Having said that, I do remember, with greater frequency, the role of breathing during a stressful situation on the job. I do not use the box breathing as often as I could due to forgetfulness, but the tactical breathing has bee more important during my day.
