For people who think yoga is boring (like my boss, who has never tried it) I'd like to see them drop in the floor and glide right through the sun salutation.  Yawning the whole way, I suppose.

To the untrained eye, some of the beginners poses are pretty boring, if you like action packed exercises. Now that doesn't mean yoga isn't hard as heck! I've watched some of the advanced stuff and i'm like DAMN how does he get into that position?! You druids and your yoga inspire me to try it more often because who doesn't feel better after accomplishing some of those poses?

I'm joining in!  Better late than never.

 

Welcome! And have fun!

 

apparently we Scouts have a difficult time sitting still long enough to meditate?

 

Agreed, it looks like each Guild is sticking to what they know best... we Druids seem to have a difficult time getting those miles in... and we are spending a lot of time meditating and doing sun salutations!

And if thats too easy do 5 in a row... :D

Welcome! And no chance of finding us Gauls... but I hope you enjoy running around in circles in the forrest. :)

Glad to have inspired you to try yoga more often! :D

 

Most people haven't even mastered the beginner poses... I for one am still working on a good Downward Dog! The advanced stuff is totally awesome! I can not wait until I master Crow Pose without landing on my face every time my feet leave the ground... A lot more core and upper body strength needed before I give that one another go!

This is such a good point... anytime I hear someone tell me yoga is boring, I want to tell them they aren't doing it right :D

PS.... the challenge is close... who is going to take all????

After we thoroughly trounce the Romans, want to gather in a circle and salute the sun together?  At dawn, of course.  By the Rock.

 

p.s.  @ Chanda:  I'm admiring of people who attempt the Crow.   For now I must stick with the boring Bow.  (Ho hum.  All you do is lay on the floor and grab your ankles  :-o)

And anyone who hasn't tried to do yoga properly has no right to call it "boring"!

The Druids of course! :D

Dear Druids,

I am now an official convert to the Cult of the Sun Salutation. Also, my arms are sore. And some muscles in my lower back I didn't even know existed. What is this madness?

Sincerely,

Starstuff

Thats the beginning of a life long addiction to yoga... Welcome! :D

Oh, don't we do that every morning??? ;)

Don't admire... I am not even close to doing it. My first attempts showed me just how far I have to go... "falling on my face" wasn't an exaggeration. Bow pose? I struggle with that... me not so bendy! :D

Just back from skiing in the woods where the romans were hiding-they stink so bad from the fish.....

Then I realized I haven't counted the distances I ski-can I include them Chanda?

Welcome back from your scouting party to the woods. Knowing the location of the Romans will be helpful for moving into the 3rd and final part of our mini-challenges.

How I wish I could say yes to you adding your ski distances! :D I know they are impressive! Very tempting... Unfortunately, I don't think it would be fair though. Lets stick with walking/running... no equipment allowed (cross-trainer, bike, ski).

While meditating the thought came to me that there are a few exceptions to the "no equipment" allowed rule for walk/run distance:

  • Treadmills
  • Nordic walking sticks
  • If you use a cane, wheel chair to get around

 

Clearly my mind is not quiet when I meditate... ;)

I've just spotted on the spreadsheet there's at least one sneaky gaulish assassin masquerading as a roman by dressing up in armour made of old tin cans. You can tell by his obviously gaulish name "Obax". Also he has a big moustache and his breath smells of wild boar. Don't trust him! He's a spy!

Thank you Druids for letting me play!

 

I have never ever done burpees before, so I thought - What the Hell!

Yes, I felt the same way after the first time I tried burpees. And I had to do modified ones. They are very addictive.

 

Nothing quite like a set of burpees to wake you up in the morning! :D

I am setting myself a challenge for every day of the last week and I think you have inspired me to make one of them a a burpee challenge.  Not sure I'm ready for burpees every morning but maybe once a week I can blitz through some!

Do the 100 Burpee challenge!

Today you do one. Tomorrow 2. In 3 months you able to do hundred. I know people doing 100 in 7 minutes.... so it is possible for everyone with just getting up 15 minutes early.

Are you in?

I am the storm."

Walk and/or Run: all that chasing and fleeing that both Romans and Gauls are doing covers a lot of distance. You need to run and/or walk. Any distance counts: from your daily activities, from exercising... it all counts.
Burpees and/or Sun Salutations: with all those spears and stinky fish flying around both Romans and Gauls need to do a lot of dodging. You need to do burpees and/or Sun Salutations. Modifications for beginners are allowed!
Meditate: Both Romans and Gauls are spending a lot of time hiding or waiting in ambush. They often fall into a kind of meditative state.

 

Last week I was walking around and enjoying the world as it is :D 3 hours I think for about 10 km because I had spare time since I´m within my exam period

 

Also I did about 3 Sun Salutations per day .. it´s a bit less than expected because my body is so incredibly stiff. But i´m still proud of it !

 

Last thing: for 3 days i meditated quite and still for 20min each before exams. It´s just amazing how I was able to calm down and focus

 

Thanks so much for giving this little challenge.

 

I will definitely apply all those little things in my daily activities because they just calmed me down and got me so focused that I was surprised how amazing it was.

 

I can btw write this just now because I had no internet for 2 days
