Why We Do Yoga 2

In this chapter of Why we do Yoga, I travel to a few new places to find out the reasons and ways people do yoga. Familiar faces and new encounters lead me through a slew of changes plans but graceful adjustments. Watch as one connection leads to another from Martinique all the way back to Atlanta and a few places in between. Luck and coincidence carried me through this one. Look forward to the next soon enough. Peace 

The list of Yogis keeps growing but you can find most of the people seen in this one on Instagram

Why Do You Do Yoga? Documentary

The Inspiration for this capture was the perspective I gained of yoga before I actually practiced. The image of the people doing yoga in the magazines and documentary films were not the people I saw doing yoga on a daily basis. I simply set out to record the experiences of people I know that practiced yoga.  The all star line up includes Yirser Ra Hotep, PintsizeNurse, Superdopemin, Bendi.Locs (Ifcukgirls), Ona Hawk, Lisa Ralston, Marisol, Sara Clark, Sacred Brooklyn Yoga studio plus more! Check it out and let us know what you think.

 

Buy Cubensis T Shirts

Introducing the cube. We are working on a project titled Introducing the cube. This will be a documentary exploring the idea of simply introducing people to the Cubensis mushroom and documenting their experience. There has been a mis-perception built around the “magic” mushrooms. We will be focused on showing show that this particular mushroom is not dangerous and can teach you much more than you will ever know.

Look forward to How to Grow workshops, Yoga and meditation sessions based around Cubensis. Each T-shirt purchase helps us funds the goals we have set to see this vision become a reality! Thank you, Support the project & Grab a Spore Print T Shirt Below

The Liberation Pack

Mycology – The scientific study of fungi. The first time I went looking for mushrooms with my boy Jordan (RIP) was quite magical. Blue Wylies were the type he would forage north Georgia. We pulled up to a spot behind a playground with a small area filled with trees that separated the park from the horse stable. He warned me to be in and out cause this spot was hot but he also brought a spliff to burn while we was there. Jordan had that type of logic. 5 minutes of looking around we saw nothing he told me to spark the spliff , I lit it and 5 seconds later it seemed like mushrooms all of sudden started appearing. We left with 2 grocery bags filled of fresh dark blue Wiley mushrooms. I was 16 at the time and thought we could always find them wild but that wasn’t the case. This forced me to learn how to grow mushrooms myself and I still wish I had a sample of blue wileys to clone. I’ll always appreciate him for putting me on.

Book Select – Charcoal Joe by Walter Mosley

In this latest installment of the Easy Rawlins series from beloved and bestselling author Walter Mosley, the L.A. private eye has his hands full with the investigation of a racially charged murder.

Easy Rawlins has started a new detective agency with two trusted partners and has a diamond ring in his pocket for his longtime girlfriend Bonnie Shay. Finally, Easy’s life seems to be heading towards something that looks like normalcy, but, inevitably, a case gets in the way. Easy’s friend Mouse calls in a favor—he wants Easy to meet with Rufus Tyler, an aging convict whom everyone calls Charcoal Joe. Joe’s friend’s son, Seymour, has been charged with the murder of two white men. Joe is convinced the young man is innocent and wants Easy to prove it no matter what the cost. But seeing as how Seymour was found standing over the dead bodies, and considering the racially charged nature of the crime, that will surely prove to be a tall order.

At the beginning stages of REM Rebound and the activity rivals Dennis Rodman. Going through a lucid phase of what can be defined as sleep. his episode was sponsored by a broke PC seal ring. Sometimes things are just flowing way too good and it must balance itself out. Im on a 3 day break but its a minor setback for a major comeback. I never realized what people meant when its said that they didn’t accept an apology until today. Comes a point where sorry don’t mean a damn thing and kicking rocks with no socks on sounds like the best option for said apologist. Another day under the sun.

How low cadence can make your weekly mileage more difficult

All mileage is not created equal. Pace and conditions are common considerations but Max Paquette, a biomechanist and sports scientist, suggests that considering cadence might be just as important as those two factors. Cadence is often overlooked, but it’s a very important variable when it comes to measuring the difficulty of kilometres run. Cadence refers to the number of steps a runner takes per minute and it’s an aspect of training that runners and coaches are starting to pay more attention to.

Cadence makes a difference

The above table shows the vast difference that a discrepancy of 10 steps can make. Runner one takes 180 steps per minute and runner two takes 170. They each run 60 miles a week, but runner two’s body has to work much harder to cover the same distance.

At first glance, this doesn’t seem like a big difference, but over the course of a week, taking 10 less steps a minute added up to an extra 75 minutes of running. That’s like adding a long run to someone’s program for no reason. That extra 75 minutes of running also adds nine per cent more tibial shock (stress on the shins) and five per cent more force.

A case for measuring using minutes

This small difference can make a big impact over the course of weeks, months and years of training. While measuring training by kilometres covered is the most common metric, Paquette’s table suggests that measuring using time might be the way to go. Running for time can alleviate the tendency to fixate on a certain number of kilometres per week and allow the runner to focus on how their body is feeling instead.

Runners who are very focussed on the weekly accumulation of miles may neglect to consider the intensity their bodies are working at and accidentally overdo it.

How to measure your cadence

This research isn’t suggesting that runners alter their cadence, but rather, they use it as a training metric like distance, time or heart rate. If you’re interested in checking on your steps per minute, there are a few simple ways. First, you can simply count the steps you take on one foot for 30 seconds and then double it.

A slightly more sophisticated way is to use the data from a foot pod or your running shoes. Most companies that make GPS watches are now also making foot pod accompaniments which measure everything from stride length to cadence. Some running shoes brands, like Under Armour, have place chips in their shoes to measure the same thing and provide the wearer with training insights.

Runners don’t need to become fixated on cadence, but rather check in on it a few times a season. After all, it’s always better to be careful than injured.
