Successful blogs require video. Successful blogs have a great social media following and include video blogging or video instruction/information.
I filmed a video. Okay, I filmed four days of video. I learned a lot in four days.
Number 1. Don’t wear crazy yoga outfits. They only look crazy. I think the reason people wear crazy yoga outfits is because they haven’t really seen themselves in it. When you do a quick pass in the mirror this simply does not get across the entirety of a crazy yoga outfit. I learned this information on day one.
Number 2. My living room does not look like a studio, or a nature center, or a film set. It looks like a carpeted living room with a lot of big furniture in it. As I reviewed the video I see that it would take a week to get all the furniture out. And then I would have to paint the walls, or cover them with curtains. HEY! Maybe I can just go pick up curtains to hang in front of the entertainment center – the one that no longer holds a television in it. How do I disguise the fishing poles? And where do I hide the couch off-camera and still have a hallway in the house? I am still thinking on these questions.
Number 3. I have a common thread in each of my yoga practice days. I have a favorite modification. It seems that modification shows up every single day. It may be because I did the video in August. This modification is the Towel Swipe modification. Towel Swipe modification is available in pretty much every posture – Downward-facing Dog, Wild Thang, Gate Pose, Locust, Any Warrior. Even trees and mountains modify with a towel swipe. It was hot. I am not meant for Hot Yoga.
I would set a video in here. Video as a challenge to myself. But I reveiwed it again. No way. I’m just going to sit back and continue to breathe.
