Day 7....today. I woke up, feeling better and did some household chores, puttering around, latte in hand, feeling alive again. I fed myself lots of water after the coffee and packed a yoga bag with two sets of everything. Double time! I went to Drays studio for the 1pm with Roberta and then drove over to my studio (wait, that feels weird, Drays studio feels like "mine" and "mine" feels more like "old") and took the 330 with a teacher named Paul.
1pm with Roberta was awesome. As I blogged Friday, the heat is fixed! Also, I've been taking class up there at night, so for the first time I could see the redrock mountains through the windows in the backbends. Breathtaking! My studio (old studio??) has window coverings, so naked windows are new for me! The naked windows were fun until camel. I was a spent sweaty mess by then (Roberta was teaching, need I say more?) and it made me dizzy and nauseous to see the blue sky and the mountains. I had to come out early both sets. After class, I dried off, changed, bought a zico and jetted over for 330 with Paul. Paul is a teacher we absorbed when another hot yoga studio closed recently. He is an older guy, gray hair, smaller of stature, but full of energy and commanding voice. He taught from the back of the room alot but that was ok. The room was cold (89) because classes are normally in the "big room" but something malfunctioned in the moksha class that was before us and they had to move to the "small room". So it didn't have time to get hot. It was ok for me, because as I have blogged before, my second class, I start to drip right away. My pores are already open, my body is already in detox mode. So I had a very good class. The combination of the easy going teacher, not very much heat and an hour break actually made for an awesome second class. Whew! Finally I do a double where I don't die the second class! The next three days I'm in a training class for work which is far enough away from both studios that I might have to take 630 class at my old studio. Which means I will end up taking moksha tomorrow night if that is the case. My shoulder is no longer frozen, Bikram has fixed it the past couple of days. If I do go to moksha tomorrow I really hope I don't re-injure it. I'm scared....hold me. Maybe I'll just wait and take 730 at Drays. Have to make good use of my one week pass. :)
