This post is a non-philosophical one.  I have simply given you my take on how to do the six movements of the spine, with reminders on integrating the breath, internal and external focus, and ways to adapt it when you, or your student, might have an injury or condition that makes one of the styles of practice difficult or uncomfortable.  Please feel free to share, quote, or get back to me with questions.

In any type of exercise or athletic training, optimal performance is reached when our primary source of fuel is fat instead of sugar. Fat stores are sustainable forms of energy, while sugars (i.e., glucose) are unsustainable forms of energy.

The other day I was looking something up for a class, and happened to go through several of my old ACE manuals. For those who do not work in fitness, ACE is one of the largest certifying agencies for fitness professionals. I still have my first manual... published in 1987. I also later did a personal training certificaion, and then, after taking time off when my kids were little, did the group fitness one again. So I have a lot of manuals.

One day when my youngest brother was about 12 or 13 (and I was about 15) he decided he wanted some cake. Not having money or transportation, or a store anyplace near us he decided to bake one. Actually he decided to bake an angel food cake. My mother had always done a lot of baking, but had gone back to work full time the year before and we were all learning to figure out how to use her heretofore closely guarded kitchen. When I got in from wherever I was he told me about it, and showed me what he had baked.

At first glance, yoga and martial arts seem like everything but a match made in heaven. In fact, they appear to be opposing forces, one slow and endearing, and the other merciless and crude. Beneath this seemingly stormy relationship, a deeper truth lies buried. Namely, once you make an effort to grasp the bigger picture, you become aware that there are many ways in which these practices can actually complement each other. Yoga and martial arts surely are not birds of a feather, but they can certainly flock together towards a new, exciting fitness frontier.

It's almost a new year and many of you are going to be thinking about joining a gym or taking up some sort of fitness regimen. There are many different opinions and schools of thought about fitness and wellness, so depending on where you go, you will find a different approach to fitness. I realize that different things motivate different people, so one approach may not work for all. Check out the philosophy behind Philosophy-Fit and think about whether this might be a solution for you if you hate going to the gym or don't want someone pushing you to the point of injury.
