Yoda and Yoga

The two have more in common than just the sound of their name. Both are in a relationship with the force of the body and wisdom. I’m not a die hard STAR WARS fan but I do love Yoda.

When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”

Yoda, Return of the Jedi

wise-is-yoda

Very true that quote is, which is exactly why I’m on the chase to sculpt my body into
something fantastic this year. I’m quite excited fitness. I’ve been working out on an average of 6-days a week. I could probably stand to cut back, but honestly, it’s not strenuous workouts. I hone an elliptical machine for no less than 65-minutes straight each morning. If the latter of the day permits me time, I squeeze in an even lower impact 20 (+) additional minutes– (moderate walking speed). The elliptical machine works my arms and legs simultaneously and the caloric burn is unreal. So I wasn’t put off when I started to get a little lower back aggravation.
Working out 6-days a week is nothing to scoff at.
The lower back pain wasn’t persistent or too, too bad, but it was often enough for me to start researching stretches and things I could possibly do to alleviate it. Because the elliptical machine works both the upper body and lower, I’m also experiencing muscle tightness in my shoulders and between my blades. It doesn’t help that I naturally hold tension in my shoulders. There is no room for additional taut in my trapezius muscles.

It is wise to know thy body, Yoda is right. In search of non-medicated muscle relief (so that I can get back to my fun and awesome workouts), I came across many suggestions of muscle stretching and lengthening via Yoga. I’m all in!

If wisdom is on the table – I’m trying to eat it.
Once knowledge is conquered, I’m down to seed it.

I’m glad you dropped by and decided to read it.
Yoda and Yoga are categorized wisdom. I need it.

Yoda and Yoga are my go-to’s when I’m looking to dimensionally elongate,

Happy Tuesday to thee – I’m scheduled to write on Hump Day – but I just couldn’t wait. 😀

Interviewed by the future – For future use

The ChildrenCurious Teen: Is partying all that you do Ms. Qui?

Ms. Qui: Pretty much.

Curious Teen: But how? How do you do it?

Ms. Qui: It’s all in the way that you set it up, my dear.

Curious Teen: Set what up?

Ms. Qui: Life.

Besides being an energetic, creative free-spirit that reels exciting personalities in all day, I am indeed an avid partier.  And to be honest, I really can’t help myself. Life is so… exciting!

The kid sat upright, lifted his brow and  erected his back,
he said, “Ms. Qui. I love the fact that you get down like that.

Whenever I think of you, in my creative minds eye,
I think ‘Jabbawockee’ — [from that Star Wars sci-fi].”

Oh my!“, I responded, “A Jabbawockee? How could it be?”
I know them from blowing up Randy Jackson’s  ABCD.

I was a fan of the dancing Jabbawockeez, so I broke into a dance move.
He stopped me and said, “That’s what I’m talking about — you’re all party and groove!”

I replied, “I don’t understand what you mean by the parallel that you’ve made.”
He said “Those tiny bears on Star Wars – they were all party and little behave.”

He continued to say, “I’ve been watching you, and quite a lot,
and I’d love to posses a fraction of the zest that you’ve got.”

The Jabbawockee inside of me is apparently vibrant, alive and awake.
A master at the art of living, draws little distinction between his work and play.

My work is so much fun; the obvious enjoyment can not be hid.
I thank God, I am blessed to work “reel production” with the most talented of kids.
Disney’s not the only one that can identify an adolescent whiz!

He’s actually looking at my life and charting his vibrant and productive future.
There’s a bit of a gap between adults and teens, though Ms. QUI’s view is a suture.

Ooo yeah! I like the way he sees me, no need to bear hues of bitter blue,
I’m Qui
