This morning was 9:30 am with Oksana. Aside from a stiff back (hey, who installed an iron rod where my back used to be?) from sleeping for TEN hours last night (Ok, I DO need to snap out of this!) my practice went fairly well. I did some errands, ate a light lunch of a nice green salad, drank smart water and came back for 3:30 with Dominique. I had another good class and the iron rod was gone, replaced with a supple spine again. (thank goodness!). Another yogi, Pam was there again (she was at 530 last night) getting ready to do her second class on a back to back double. After talking to her a bit, I discovered she stayed for the 730 last night and is going to do another double again tomorrow. I ran to the front desk, came back with the schedule of teachers for tomorrow and we scrutinized it carefully, very scientifically picking the best (easiest) combo for a back to back tomorrow. We decided on 1130 with Connie, followed by 130 with Frank (oh dear God, what did I just get myself into??) and Dominique excitedly said she would join us as she is not teaching tomorrow and would like to do a double as well. This is the only way I'll go do the back to back....if left to my own devices, I RUN from the back to backs as I am always a mess that second class. I'm just really going to try to remember that the first class is a warm up tomorrow and not do a "regular" class. I think that was my problem last time. (I hope).
Well it's 530ish on a Saturday night. I sit here listening to the washing machine downstairs, body tingling deliciously from 3 hours of yoga, house nice and clean, plans for the night cancelled. What to do next? I think I'll strap on the 'ol ipod and go outside and wash a car. No reason to waste all of this energy (what? energy after 3 hours of yoga!! This is great!).
Be back tomorrow with a full report on my back to back double, which will hopefully not be filled with yoga drama, me laying down, moaning, throwing up, cramping up .....you get the picture.
