16:30 - EARTH & Annamaya Kosha Lecture Begins. Commitment is a HUGE structure to support our journeys. Journey check-in reminders. It's time to come up with your own structures! Structures are what support us in finding true freedom & flow! Marriage is one example.
25:30 - In Spiral 2, we explore our relationship with our PHYSICAL BODIES and with the Earth. With your flow practice, this is where you are going to DRILL your flow moves. This is also where we look at what we are putting into our bodies. Let's share Recipe's! Heidi's family business - Grandmother's Kitchen!! Jinju's story about Mama Ayahuasca's message about the physical body. She asked, "Why don't you talk to everything you put into your body the way you are talking to me right now?"
34:30 - Excerpts from the book, The Female Brain.
38:30 - Female Brain & Moon Cycle Graphs! Connections between the womb and the brain. The female and male brains couldn't be more different!! Even as infants!! Women process information more holistically - with BOTH hemispheres!! Women are big picture thinkers, whereas men process information more deeply! Women's brains have 10x more white matter!
49:00 - Danielle shares about how men and women process pain differently - T cells mediate pain in men & microglia in women!!! Wow!! Women are empaths - clever experiment - women will sit closer to people in pain on a bench! AND in science, women scientists observe pain in mice experiments in a different way than male scientists do! Histamine is released in preparation for egg to implant embryos.
56:00 - How do apply this information to our day to day lives? Our brains and our abilities change drastically across the moon cycle! There's up to a 25% increase in neural connectivity in hippocampus in the week before ovulation!!
1:04:30 - STRUCTURE DETERMINES FUNCTION & PURPOSE!!! Structures within & around us. So what is the purpose of our physical bodies??? What is the purpose of being HUMAN?
1:11:00 - Jinju shares results of 3 studies about the neuroscience & health benefits of juggling & dance!! Women with anxiety & depression - Only 5 min a day significantly reduced anxiety & depression!!! Regular parter dancing has a 76% protective effect on the brains of senior citizens from developing dementia or Alzeimers!!!
1:23:00 - Lecture ends. Sisters unmute to connect & talk story!! Let's hold Angel's grandfather in our hearts & prayers. Jenn - there's nothing wrong with us!! :) Heidi's friend - My Moona App!!!! Yes PLEASE!! KATIE is leaving Ethiopia!! Let's hold her in our hearts & prayers as she makes this HUGE transition back to the US. Stephanie - GREAT POINT! It's hard to explain to other people what's so amazing about the "flow" and the "dance".... maybe we need to lead that conversation with the SCIENCE. Yes, so true!

Week 12 (July 10) - NaiAsana Yoga & Flow
week 12 - live recording
WEEK 12 - LIVE RECORDING TIMELINE - Thank you Shawna for doing these timestamps!!
00:00 - Introduction. Jinju. We are transitioning from Spiral 2, from Earth into Water and are about one-third of the way through the journey. Sending love and prayers, energy and joy to the many sisters not on this call.
1:37. JINJU. I love the transitions! You all are doing a lot of transitions in your small groups. I have had several sisters ask if I could drop in on one of your small group calls, so I am looking into that.
2:26. JINJU. Powerful New Moon. Partial solar eclipse. Fertility of intentions is magnified when you set intentions under a new moon without an eclipse. Your intentions last about four weeks up to the next new moon. WITH a solar eclipse in the mix those intentions last about SIX MONTHS!
3:23. JINJU. I encourage everyone to write your intentions on small pieces of paper and put them in each poi. Give how prominent prayer wheels are in Asia… they believe that a prayer that is spinning is 1,000 TIMES more powerful than a prayer standing still!
8:50. Meditation led by Jinju. Beautiful Bali bird sounds in the background. JINJU. Imagine that beautiful glowing flame, that inner fire, seeing it in your mind’s eye and spiraling it down into your heart and then your womb space. Imagine the end of January next year. Picture yourself with the biggest smile and really SEE that smile, that joy, your aura. Embrace and invoke that deep sense of accomplishment; knowing you are not the same woman that started on this journey.
17:06. JINJU. POI INSTRUCTION STARTS HERE. One asana I recommend before and after spinning poi is Eagle Arms.
Warm-up stretches ensue.
22.52. POI LESSONS begin here.
23.40. Three different kinds of transitions in poi dancing; stalls, bending planes and turns.
26.09. Planes and how parallel they are. Practice noticing where your poi are in your planes. When you don’t have a mirror to look into you can use a window or shadow reflection to observe the linearity of your planes. Once you get into fire it really matters!
29:42. CIRCLES - Another really great drill in the vein of planes. Start with one poi. I learn everything on my dominant side first and then let my dominant side teach and inform the less dominant. You can have SO much fun and flow without crossing the midline! I think this is where I encourage you all to find your flow. Put on some music and have fun!
34.12. DOWN-STALL DEMONSTRATION. Down stalls are another transition method. I love the metaphors that start to appear between poi, and life, and the cosmos and the universe and all that… the “zero point” … for one split second there is no pull in any direction. The zero point of energy is where all possibilities and things are possible!
43.48. ANGEL. I have a question about the transition from the wall plane to overhead moves like the windmill. – Jinju demonstrates hip reals.
50:54. POI TURNS. Sweep turn; All the way around the world; split time turn. One of the bet drills in the Aloha series to help really embody and get the planes and directions is “AROUND THE WORLD”.
1:06:30. Jinju. For me, personally, the yogini and dancer in me sees the poi visually and energetically as extension of my prana body… you are sending energy from your body into an extension of you… I like to dance poi with my hands open. The prana really extends out. I can’t practice without music. That’s where the flow, dropping into that zone, is a beautiful, beautiful thing!
1:10:51. ??? who asked this question Jinju? Heidi asked this question. “Aren’t the hands reflections of the heart?” JINJU. In a lot of my workshops I talk about that fire inside the heart. When we do the corkscrew and put that fire in our hands we connect the hands with the heart.
1:14:20. DANIELLE. With music and when I’m in the flow, I can feel the changes carry over from spinning the poi to my other movements, whether it’s on the mountain bike or mentally at work. I can definitely feel the neuroplasticity, which is really amazing!
1:16:05. JINJU. I noticed shifts in my nervous system immediately (from spinning poi). Samba poi was the birth of my first poi dancing, and now I am learning Balinese dancing, which has so many figure-eights in the hand movements. And then you get to the FIRE… meeting the fire again I realized I am not the same person I was when I first spun fire. What really cooks me in the fire dance is really spending time with it, not dancing with it, just holding the fire. I love really connecting and communing with the fire that way.
1:20:20. HEIDI MARIE. I took the poi up with me to climb with my dad and spun to warm up. To spin before that is just a really good little climber thing! JINJU. I just love the relationship that you and your Mom have. HEIDI MARIE. We are really close. She’s really excited to come to Bali and be a part of it all!
1:22:17. JINJU. We have two dance venue pavilions on the retreat property! It actually creates the possibility and the likelihood that we can split into two classes, one more beginner and one more advanced. I have partnered with Trinity Star for hoops. Don’t buy a hoop until you check out their hoops. Their travel hoops are amazing! Discounts as part of the retreat will be forthcoming.
1:26:32. JINJU. Details about the retreat and the new NiAsa Training Program to be unveiled very soon. For the first time it feels like things are just coming, its flow, the information, the pieces… I’m learning a lot or just remembering a lot about how life works. It’s the timing – Just thinking about all those times in my life when I tried to force things. We don’t have to do that, and to remember that if I’m feeling like I’m forcing it and it’s not flowing, the timing’s not right and I can put it on the back burner.
1:28:40. JINJU. Discussion of some details about the NiAsa Training Institute programs! If you have any interest in certification please watch this section for SURE! So very exciting!
Week 13 (July 17) - Integration Week
