Victorisms
Enjoy!
Feel free.
Thank you for being here.

Take your time.
Nicely done. (variations were: Nice work in that series. Good job in…. Etc.)
As you are ready.
Breathe.
How’s that?
Eventually.
Relax your glutes. Yoga should make you less of a tight ass.
Find yourself as you are.
Shall we flow?
Looks like you’ve had enough of that. (variation: That’s enough of that.)
Indeed.
Is that all you got?
I got nothin’.
Make the ordinary extraordinary. (variation: The ordinary is extraordinary.)

Sara’s Birthday Mix

By: Victor Dubin

About 5 years ago the Tuesday night intermediate class and I went out to dinner at Olitas. At the time I was using only “yoga” music in my classes, flutes, sytar, chanting, etc. At the dinner the topic of my personal yoga practice came up and Sara asked what kind of music I listened to while practicing. I mentioned Led Zepplin, Mos Def, among others. She suggested I start using that kind of music in class and I began experimenting with different music mixes. Since then many of you have come to enjoy the Martin Luther King Birthday mixes, and the mixes for holidays, and even just encouraging the sun to shine. Thanks to Sara for the encouragement. This one was for you:

A National Holiday For A King

All week I have been creating music mixes for classes to honor the life of Dr. King. Today it culminates with the national holiday in his honor. Most of today’s exerpts come from the March on Washington speech, but some from the march to Birmingham and others from his later years in opposition to war in general and the U.S. participation in war specifically.
