  1. As always Warior One is the best thing we do all week: a good workout, stretch and body recovery coupled with a calming of the mind.
  2. Drishti is a point of focus where the gaze rests during a posture and meditation practice–gazing outward while bringing awareness inward.  It is much needed for those balancing poses, which seem to challenge the pax more than any other poses.

Peace,

    @Deuce … thanks for the well planned and executed stretching workout … it was just what I needed after Othello’s 6″ x 6″ flogging yesterday
