Incorrect Knowing Uncolored
January 2019

Yoga Sutra 1.8
“Incorrect knowledge or illusion, (viparyayah) is false knowledge formed by perceiving a thing as being other than what it really is”
The classic example is being outside at dusk then seeing a rope but it is mistaken for a snake. This misconception can cause a reaction that is based on something that is not real and most assuredly can cause unnecessary suffering. The primary suffering when you cannot know false from real is that you can’t know the Self. The person seeking enlightenment will use these instances to gain more insight and as a result can start to uncolor these false perceptions to reveal what is real. You know longer have to fear walking in that direction of the rope because you now it for what it is.
Right now we are in the midst of the “Fake News” era, where the truth is being distorted to get a reaction beneficial to a cause rather than what is real. When we seek to know what is actually real we remove a layer of coloring between what is real and what is not. To uncover these colorings, to reveal the truth takes purposeful contemplations.  Look to the Shanti Mantra the mantra of peace that says from the unreal lead me to the real, from the darkness lead me to the light and from death to eternal life. We cannot find peace without living in the truth of what is.

DSY Featured January Class
Aerial Yoga $10 drop in

For the month of January we are featuring a special class option, Aerial Yoga.
This class meets every Friday at 5:15 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.  The Aerial Yoga class uses parachute silk hammocks and handles that allows access to different yoga postures not available on the mat. In addition, suspension in the air releases tension in the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and decompression of the spine.
This class will require the payment of the fee to reserve a space. You will need to pay the special $10.00 rate at the studio, or by contacting us at either diana@dianasschoolofyoga.com or calling 
817-909-6544.

 Muscle Recovery Facts

Question. The older I get the Harder it is to recover from workouts. Why?

Answer.  As we age, muscle fibers decrease in number and shrink in size. We also have a slower rate of muscle fiber re-generation. The result is a slower process altogether for recovering from either an injury or a strenuous training workout. Men recover faster than women due to the added benefits of muscle building testosterone.  Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are physically active and over the age of 40.

  • Don’t do the same exercise every day. Cross training will mix up the muscle groups used thus minimizing the stresses placed on the musculoskeletal system.
  • The 48 hour recovery rule worked fine in your 20’s and 30’s but now you may need to allow 72 hours of recovery time to fully repair and heal. 
  • Be sure to include flexibility training in your regimen as muscles, tendons, and ligaments tend to stiffen up with age predisposing you to injury. Increase your range of motion with yoga, swimming or myofascial release.
  • Include strength training in your regimen to injury proof your body, decrease muscle fatigue and improve cardiovascular performance. 
  • Rest is underrated when it comes to recovery. Sleep time is when the body goes into healing repair mode. Deep sleep triggers growth hormone release which assists in the development of muscle as well as decreasing adipose tissue (fat). Aim for 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.
  • Take advantage of the open window of opportunity for restocking your glycogen stores after a workout. What you eat and how soon you eat immediately after training can make all the difference in the world when it comes to muscle recovery. A study done on older men found that this principle is even more critical than in younger men. The goal is to ingest within 30 minutes of training a combination of carbohydrate and protein to facilitate muscle synthesis. Amounts vary depending on size and workout type but a general recommendation is: 15 grams or more of protein and 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per kg of body weight.
