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

Podcasting In A World Of Propaganda

I stay up all night. Especially these days. Time for a walk and talk podcast about podcasting. Learn more in Podcasting-In-Propaganda-Maelstrom-Bob Davis Podcast 921.

Podcasting

First of all I don’t often talk about podcasting. Above all this medium has taken me from one place to another in life.

Propaganda

Especially relevant? I don’t think I have ever seen amount of propaganda we’re exposed to now.

Anxiety and Negative Thoughts

In addition new research shows people in the United States are experiencing high levels of anxiety and negative thoughts.

Trauma

To hear a my podcast about the effects of trauma click here.

Uncertainty Rules

Also I think our biggest problem is the not knowing outcomes.

Walking and Talking Is Good

Consequently it’s always good to do a walk and talk.

Content Creators Struggling

My thoughts as a content creator are especially relevant.

Wading Through Crap

Even more how do content creators thread our way through unprecedented levels of propaganda.

Won’t Tell You What To Think

Furthermore I refuse to tell subscribers and listeners what to think.

Doing Our Homework To Avoid Mass Manipulation

I’ve explained how we can do our own homework. In addition I’ve shown how social media can be used for mass manipulation.

Won’t Follow The Audience’s Lead

Certainly I could tell audiences what they want to hear. Everyone else does, right?

Deeper Into The Darkness

To detail every little rift and latest conspiracy or story making headlines only takes us deeper into the darkness

Leading Rather Than Following

In Podcasting-In-Propaganda-Maelstrom-Bob Davis Podcast 921 I give you two unexpected examples of people who refused to follow their audiences and how they became leaders.

How Do We Get Out Of This Mess?

Finally it seems to me what we need is a way to start thinking how we’re going to get out of this mess we’re in.

Fussin’ and Fighting Won’t Cut It

Fighting about the latest outrage only takes us deeper into the darkness.

Real Damage In The Bahamas. A Dreamworld In The US

First of all this podcast is about media coverage. Hurricane Dorian did major damage in the Bahamas. After nearly two weeks of fear from media Dorian had little effect in the US. Learn more in Hurricane-Hysteria-Creating-American-Dreamworld-Bob Davis Podcast 860.

Speculation and Predictions

These days the mission of my podcast is to avoid predicting the future.

Outcomes Matter

Furthermore outcomes matter. Hurricane Dorian exposed how our media lies.

Shoddy Reporting

Moreover hurricane coverage exposed how they cover every story. Shoddy reporting. Predictions by so called experts. Breathless gossip. Dramatic scenes. No facts. Little perspective or context.

Stating The Obvious

In addition, seems like I’m stating the obvious. In Hurricane-Hysteria-Creating-American-Dreamworld-Bob Davis Podcast 860 I’ll tell you why it’s this way.

Public Nuisance

It’s especially relevant to say news coverage has become a public nuisance. Just ask those who evacuated only to learn it was a waste of their time and public resources.

Sharpie President

Moreover why is the President being attacked for his predictions of the storm’s path? Didn’t the media do exactly that for more than a week? Sharpie’s indeed.

Gossip

Seems like major media companies can’t afford real reporters. Also, no one trusts them. No one will talk to them. Certainly this is why they have nothing real to report.

US Achilles Heel

Finally I wonder what happens when there’s a real crisis. Consequently we must admit our advanced communications capability might turn out to be our Achilles Heel. Welcome to the American Dreamworld in this Walk and Talk Podcast.
