Worked with Adrian, Doug, and Don. Worked on Rolling at the end of class, and I did well on the right side, not so well on the left side, but getting better I think.
Energy bunching up and moving from Center issues.
Adrian is one of those people that has a lot of flow.
Staying centered and moving from center is key, that is also one of the keys to life, not getting overextended, thinking about the future, or the past, one is like reaching far out in front of you, and the other like standing on one leg looking back.
I have to move from center with flow in my life outside of the Dojo. My issues in the past with getting bunched up energy and stressed out in life, are just like what my body does on the mat sometimes. The biggest things that I need to do are breath, and move from the center of my being.
