Back in the Saddle



Just wanted to let you know, I'm teaching again . . . yoga that is. . . just for a 2 week study on the affects of yoga on the cardiovascular system. I never take jobs when they're offered to me and I never try to create them either. It just always ends up being more trouble than it's worth, however this time around the class is at 9pm, so I can get the kiddos in bed and head out. . . the size of the paycheck certainly sweetens the deal. It's been fun and I am truly amazed at the progress of these first time Yogis (being a first timer was one of the requirements of the study) in just 4 days. It's REMARKABLE. This isn't a granola become one with the universe by sitting as still as possible and stretching for an hour type of practice we're workin' either. They're working hard and doing great! Just a note about yoga. . . After my brother died, it truly did "get me through" those couple of turbulent months when the reality of it all started sink my ship. I went on a short hiatus for a couple of months and now that I'm back in the saddle, I'm realizing in a profound way that I just CANNOT AFFORD NOT to make time for this. It's good for my heart, it's good for my mind, it's tremendously good for my soul and it helps me in the perpetual push toward a size 4 (ha ha yeah right).

Wow. I need you HERE. Maybe you could motivate me. You almost did it with this blog! I'm too scared to go to the one down the street!

I wish I could be out there during this study. I'd LOVE to be in a beginning yoga class with you right now. Will you be my Guru? I need one!

Wow! That's great! I wish I could be in your class. I went to one a long time ago and didn't like it so i've never tried again. Yours sounds wonderful!
