Winter Stories-Grand Solar Minimum-Bob Davis Podcast 810

These days almost everyone across the US thinks their winter has been cold. People in the Upper Midwest have really experienced cold. Especially relevant? It may be about to get a lot colder. Learn more in Winter Stories-Grand Solar Minimum-Bob Davis Podcast 810.

Solar Cycle 25

Ever since Rudolf Wolf started measuring solar cycles back in 1755 they’ve been counting them. Solar Cycles last roughly 11 years, and we are just about to enter Solar Cycle 25.

Maunder Minimum

Moreover there’s more than just an 11 year cycle when it comes to the sun. During the Maunder Minimum, from 1645 to about 1715 solar activity was pretty quiet. Check out Winter Stories-Grand Solar Minimum-Bob Davis Podcast 810.

Little Ice Age

The Maunder Minimum is often referred to as a ‘Little Ice Age’. During this time London’s famous Thames River froze solid. Let’s just say it wasn’t a good time. Some scientists believe we are about to have another minimum. They call it a Grand Solar Minimum. Others refer to this predicted period of low solar activity as a ‘Super’ Solar Minimum.

Climate Change Activists Say It’s A Myth

Full disclosure. Global Warming Theory and Climate Change activists think predictions of cooler temps during a potential solar minimum is a dangerous myth.

A New Ice Age

Sun Cycle 25 begins in 2020. Professor Zharkovia, Doctor Helen Popova and Professor Simon Shephard and Doctor Sergei Zharkov all predict we could have a new ice age by 2030. Batten down the hatches.

If Cold Isn’t Enough There’s Always The Magnetic Field

In addition solar minimums can effect the Earth’s Magnetic fields in chaotic ways. Recently You Tubers have posted many videos suggesting a weakening magnetic field could mean multiple and drifting magnetic fields. Ultimately, they say, it could lead to an actual shift in the 23 degree tilt of the Earth’s axis.

What About Human Behavior

As we head toward sun cycle 25 we’re already in the early stages of the weakening magnetic field. How will this cycle effect our weather? How might sun cycles effect human behavior?

Sub Zero Temperatures-Yoga-Body Effects-Bob Davis Podcast 805

Minnesotans love to talk about the weather. These days sub zero weather in the upper midwest is a fact of life. How does it effect your yoga practice? Find out in Sub Zero Temperatures-Yoga-Body Effects-Bob Davis Podcast 805.

Minus 32 is a lot colder than 17

First of all when it comes to yoga there’s a big difference between 17 to 20 degrees and 30 degrees below zero. By the way, we’re talking Fahrenheit here, not Celsius.

Our Bodies Don’t Adjust As Quickly As Our Minds

Furthermore we practice in rooms heated sometimes above one hundred degrees. In contrast our bodies are still adjusted to sub zero temperatures.

One Hundred and Thirty Degree Temperature Difference

Hard to believe there is a a one hundred a thirty degree temperature difference between outside and the studio when it is 30 below zero.

Easier To Practice When It’s Thirty

Moreover outside temps see sawing between below zero real temperatures and warm spells of above thirty. This too effects my practice. Yes it’s a lot easier to practice when it’s thirty outside.

Falling On Ice

Finally we’re all dealing with physical exertion beyond spring, fall and summer. Falling on the ice. Shoveling snow. Ice Fishing. Winter fun. They all help get through a tough season but take their toll.

Daily Practice Means Daily Practice

In conclusion it doesn’t matter how cold it is, I am still going out to join the rest of the community in practice. Being committed to a daily practice sometimes means pushing yourself, but it is so worth it. Some days are easier than others but I always feel great after practice.

See you in the studio
