Hey Danny, hope you had a good time over the holidays.
My question is this, do you indulge in any form of working out, be it exercise, yoga, stretching so on? This last year I have gotten into "fitness" and I have come to find it quite meditative and centering, so I was curious if you indulge in any kind of sport, exercise or body movement as an extension of your meditation and interest in reflection.
i do yoga, and am interested in a martial art called kali [although i don't get to work with my trainer as much as i'd like]. my main exercise right now is walking. but i do tai chi and have studied that off an on for a while and various other things. practicing is kind of hard on the body when you add up thirty or forty years of it. i've been sort of working on a system of exercises to help with that. alexander technique is really good for that, though i don't have a practitioner near me. i don't really work out per se, though i do go to the gym in hotels when i get kinda stove up from traveling. mainly i like yoga and walking.
Hello Mr Barnes. From a fan in the UK. Looking to get the Banjo into my life but not sure where to start as I've never even attempted to play an instrument. Watched your Youtube clips and found them a real inspiration. My question is where should I start ?? Beginner books then move to a tutor, or a combination of both. Lots of forums talk about Janet Davis and Earl Scruggs as good beginner books. Would you recommend these teachers ??? Just need a little guidance. Hope you can help ???
