Day 61: A substitute
Today was the nice Friday express class with Kirk the easy guy. 530 class that would get out 5 mins early. Yes! Reggi was not there, so I went on the totally other side of the room (see Roberta, I can move) and practiced near another regular, Christian for my Reggi substitute. His quiet, strength, discipline, focus was much like Reggis and kept me going. And, like Reggi, he has a sense of humor. In full locust posture, Reggi and I always tap hands, like "hi, I'm here". Christian did the same. He tapped hands and then for fun, trapped my right arm down on the ground for a few seconds. So once we both got into the posture fully, I returned the favor by shoving my arm under his and lifting him up. I saw him smiling in the mirror and thought to myself, "this is soooo much fun!". I love yoga. I love yoga people. I am mentally tired of going everyday and it's getting harder and harder to get there, but it's worth it!
