I had mentioned a couple of posts ago that I wanted to try vortex yoga on our trip to Sedona. In order to have a fair comparison of standard vs. vortex, I joined in on the standard morning class offered at our resort to start off the day. The instructor, Yogi Blair (yeah, that's how he introduced himself), led us through some nice series of stretches and leg strengtheners. He also added in a few extra poses - snake and dragon, which I hadn't done before and were more like tai chi. The class was outside in the grass and was a nice way to start the day.
|In an effort to try vortex yoga, I had to first find a vortex. I found a helpful map that gave information about where to find the four main energy vortexes in Sedona. The best hint given was that vortexes tend to be near twisted Juniper, seen here.|
|We had spotted a bald eagle earlier in the day when we were on our train ride, more on that tomorrow, so this it my homage to Mr. Bald Eagle - half of the eagle pair of Black & Decker (names they were apparently given by a dude).|
|Brian Beard had no comment about the yoga, vortexes or anything else that he wanted to share but he does look handsomer at the top of a mountain.|
