yogic perspective – every pose should have a certain ease and intensity
Warrior #1 as a example
BREATH as a measurement. No calm.
What is the appropriate level of intensity ? We default to our personality. Some might have too much intensity and others with too little intensity.
Different levels of performance – Past your point of comfort
two questions – Intention and Body Types.
In West – The intention and intensity are the same
For example – specific tasks – intention helps the gauge intensity.
Yoga – Heat and pressure to purify the body. —-
Be aware when intensity is BECOMING “Judgemental”
“Negative Play “ –Intensity overwhemling.
Addiction – Rajas – Applies to work.
A DISCHARGE is needed.

Endurance workouts: require patience and commitment so that intensity can be sustained
Is competition a good stimulant for intensity? How does this translate into a successful realization of your good or activity?
Does too much intensity lead to burn-out? yes!!! So why do we think more intensity is better for workouts and staying healthy?
Is intensity addictive? Yes! in yogic terms this type of energy is called rajas: it’s explosive, heating, expansive.
tamas – lazy
Balancing – Rajas and Tamas
Sympathic (Fight or Flight) – Digestion stops Adreline vs. Para-Sympathic (Linked to breath, longer the breath , calm, digestion is steady, recovery
It should be noted that individuals in the west often need a discharge in order to cope with current levels of stress and emotional backup.
What happens when you get burned out? Depression, fatigue, exhaustion?
