Unfortunately, that's the dream part of the title. I woke up this morning after that dream, restless, yearning, wanting.
I went to 5pm yoga in a daze. Partly due to learning there is a bikram yoga retreat in the south of france run by Craig Villani. I need to get there! (thanks Hannah just breathe for sharing). I wandered into 5pm at Summerlin with Jason teaching, dreaming of France. The class was small. Under 20. The yogis that were there were strong, focused, experienced. Jason even tried to crack a couple of jokes, but everybody was too far "in the yoga brain zone". I was so in the zone I actually started to do the wrong posture once.
Suddenly, during spine series I "came to" and realized I do something funny. It's a quirk I suppose. After locust (your arms are trapped under you in that posture) I "free the girls" before we go into full locust (your arms are out and you are lifting up like an airplane). I always do this but never really paid attention to it. I'm quite sure the dialog between the two postures doesn't say "do a small mini pushup to free the girls before going into savasana". That got me thinking. What's your quirk? Do you do anything during class that is unique to you? I bet you do! Please share! It can't be as embarrassing as freeing the girls, so shoot!
The compliment: After class I was chillin' in the lobby with my zico and Jason said "you have a nice triangle. I was going to say something during class but I got tongue tied!" (He's new, cut him a break!) I smiled ear to ear. Getting used to a different flooring has made me triangle challenged. The last week at Summerlin I felt like I was getting back to my old self and getting used to the carpet. I guess it shows! I have a nice triangle! Awesome!
