I ended up dragging my cranky butt to the 3:30 class with young Mark Frye today. I love the way he teaches, because for some reason, the class goes by fast for me. I don't know if it's his timing, the inflection of his voice, I have no idea, but for some reason I stay out of my mind a bit better and am able to meditate and focus more. Today there were SEVEN brand new people in his class. There was one lady in the back that under normal circumstances would've given me a chuckle. Instead, she was annoying the crap out of me. She obviously didn't know about the no talking rule and kept shouting out questions at Mark during half moon. He didn't answer and didn't skip a beat with his dialog. She continued to comment and talk all the way through eagle. By then I had taken note of my annoyance and given myself a little "calling out on the carpet". I scolded myself for being annoyed, decided this was my personal challenge for the day, can I meditate and focus and balance and be strong even with chatty cathy two rows behind me? Once I did that, I was able to focus and had an incredibly strong practice. I'm sure she eventually stopped talking, but when I couldn't tell you, because I was so focused that I tuned her out.
So I'm back home, showered, relaxed and with a brand new attitude female woes and all. This yoga works on so many levels!
