Creating A Solid Home Yoga Practice

These days if you want to do yoga in most places, you have to do it at home. Yoga studios closed. What do you do? Develop your own yoga practice. Join me on the journey in 108-SunSalutes-Home-Yoga-Practice-Bob Davis Podcast 925.

Twenty Years Of Practice

Most noteworthy for me is my twenty years of practicing yoga. So I should be able to do this right? Truthfully there are guides online, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Not Worthy To Teach?

Even more I never felt I my practice was good enough for me to even think about teaching.

Always A Student

Moreover I always felt the best thing for me and my practice was to be a student.

Enter The Lock Down

Enter the lock down. The sequester. Shelter In Place. Quarantine. Whatever we call it, the pandemic is wreaking havoc for Yogis, Martial Artists and Gym Rats.

Get Creative

As the result of the studios and gyms being closed we have to get creative. Learn more in 108-SunSalutes-Home-Yoga-Practice-Bob Davis Podcast 925

Not As Easy To Practice At Home As I Thought

Consequently I decided to start practicing yoga at home. For someone who has practiced as much as I have, it should be easy. Right?

Long Term Goal To Have A Home Practice

In contrast developing my own practice was a little more challenging than I thought. I didn’t let that bother me though. Above all for years I have wanted to be able to have a practice I could do whether I was on an abandoned dirt road in the desert, or stuck at home during a quarantine.

Enter The Sun Salute!

One of the things I love about yoga are sun salutes. So the two series I developed for myself all start with 25 sun salutes.

Not Done, Until It’s Over Done

Likewise the other day I thought, we do 108 sun salutes twice a year to celebrate the change of seasons. Why not do that at home?

The Wow Factor

Wow! Probably one of the best things I have ever done.

We Can’t Predict The Future But We Can Practice Every Day

Finally some real talk. I think it’s most noteworthy we don’t really know when this will end, how it will end. We don’t even know where we’re going to be when it’s all over.

Now I Have A Strong Daily Yoga Practice

While I can hope for the best I know the only way I can keep balanced, and clear my head, is to have a strong daily yoga practice.

Missing My Yoga Community

In conclusion I want to dedicate this podcast to the my teachers and the yoga community where I live. I miss them so much. I know there are zoom classes and DVD’s but it’s not the same as hanging at the studio and talking yoga.

See you all soon.

Namaste

Thanksgiving-Road-Trip-Planning-Bob Davis Podcast 876

Mega Road Trip!

I have started the countdown clock for departure for my 2019 Thanksgiving Mega Road Trip. Find out why I only do back roads. In addition, why am I taking a trip through the American Midwest. Learn more in Thanksgiving-Road-Trip-Planning-Bob Davis Podcast 876.

Back Roads Only Please

As far as I am concerned back roads are most noteworthy. I don’t do freeways or toll roads. The back roads are where you learn what is really going on in this country.

Podcasting From The Road

Moreover I really have a passion for podcasting from Mobile Podcast Command, a ‘repurposed’ 2000 ambulance.

Places No One Ever Reports On Or Goes To

On America’s two lane state, county and farm roads, a traveler sees and feels places no one ever goes to or reports on.

“No One Ever Comes Here”

Especially relevant are two Iowa farmers I interviewed last summer. With all the politicians in Iowa you’d think someone would have knocked on their doors. “That’s all up in Des Moines”, they said. “No one ever comes here to talk to us”.

Real America

In contrast I’ve taken the back roads from coast to coast, north and south, east and west. Because of the back roads I’ve learned a lot about America.

Mysterious Ancient Paper Maps

As a result I have learned the value of a mysterious thing called a map. I don’t mean google maps. I’m talking about paper maps. I’ll explain in Thanksgiving-Road-Trip-Planning-Bob Davis Podcast 876.

Exact Route

Above all I’ll give you the exact route I’ll be taking this Thanksgiving across Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia. Pretty much all back roads.

RV Nomads

Finally when I started back roading in mobile podcast command, there weren’t very many RV Nomads out there. This podcast is a salute to all the Van Life and Skoolie Conversion people I follow. Now there are millions. Maybe they’re onto something.

Mobile Podcast Command Is Primitive

In contrast I won’t be living in relative luxury in my RV. Mobile Podcast Command is primitive. I sleep in a hammock. Cook my dinners on a camp stove. I Take showers at Yoga studios and Truck Stops. I do have a coffee maker, however.

Real Happiness Through Travel

Above all, happiness is a clean windshield and a full tank of fuel.
