Gahhh I’m absolutely GUSHING about yoga this morning!
My “Yoga Grooves” class was fantastic. Exactly what I’ve been searching for in a practice since I left my beloved studio in Charleston. Jen, the instructor, just moved here from California where she practiced with some of the best yoga people (including Kishan who is the guest instructor of next weekend’s detox workshop event), many of whom have been featured in Yoga Journal. The class was definitely a powerful flow……we were moving the entire time and did tons of sun salutations and chatarungas. Just when I felt like I was at my breaking point and wanting to go down in child’s pose, she called out “and now we will begin the chatarunga sequence!” Haha! We did slowwww 10 second transitions from plank down to chatarunga then back up in another 10 seconds. Talk about working your triceps….and shoulders…and biceps….haha. It was challenging for sure but great to sweat and I felt very strong. And, of course, the music was blasting the whole time.
The only bad thing though that is right now this class is only offered Friday mornings at 9:00, which I won’t be able to do anymore once I start my job. I asked her if they ever planned on making this a noon class (which will be the only time I will be able to make!) and she said she could definitely teach at noon and she would make the request to Annie, the owner. So we will see what happens!
When I got home I grated some fresh and spicy monterey jack cheese, sprinkled it on my leftover pizza slices and did a quick reheat in the micro:
And I had a small cup of blueberries for dessert—
On my way home from yoga I also clocked the distance from the library to my house—-only 2 1/2 miles! So, this afternoon I am planning on a little bike ride there to get a library card so I can work on one of my new year’s resolutions, which is to check out more books than I buy. I already have a library in my bedroom!
There’s talk with Ryan about going out for cuban food tonight and then finally seeing a movie.
See you tonight!
