Day 10: Hidden Talents

Today was 5:30 with Dray. At my studio. Yes. I am going to make the move. I know you all could feel it, I was leading up to it, and yes, I am moving there. It just feels like home. I still have a membership at my old studio, and will still drop in, but my "every weeknight at 5:30" drill will be up at Dray's.....that is now "my studio".
Tonight was hot but not humid. So for once, I was not raining. We got a bit sweaty, sure, but it was nothing like Monday night with Roberta where I was dripping in awkward and wondering if my body was malfunctioning. There were only about 6 of us in class tonight. Dray still taught as if to a packed house. His energy never wanes. He encourages, demonstrates, and gives hot tips. He is absolutely contagious. If you take his class, you cannot help but get caught up in his enthusiasm. I put a comment on his facebook the other night, thanking him for a great class
and he wrote back this:

Thankx u Yogini Ninja! Ur 1000 yard stare is amazing!!

1000 yard stare. Sweet! I guess I have a hidden talent that I was not even aware of! Speaking of hidden talents, I have decided that I have something to give and may be working with his studio in some capacity. More to come! I feel very fulfilled right now!


  1. Awww...congrats on your decision to move studios. Sounds like you are going to be so happy! So funny about the sweat and malfunctioning body comment. Last night in Tree I could see a steady stream of sweat coming straight off my knee. Looked like a faucet. So funny. Happy day to you!

  2. tracik~sometimes I feel like a freak when I am "raining". **sigh**. I suppose it's just one of those side effects we have to live with! Happy day to you too!

  3. Dray would teach with the same energy whether he had 2 students or 200. It's great.

  4. Awwwww, so cool!! Gotta love enthusiastic instructors, people that love their jobs.

  5. Yep. You DO need to be working at a yoga studio. This one, in fact. Excellent. :)

  6. Cirita~ can you imagine a grumpy bikram teacher that hated their job? oooh, miserable 90 mins that would be! :)
    J~ I'm gonna facebook ya with info!
