10 hrs of Yoga

Yes, between Fri and Sun I did 10 hrs of yoga which included one headstand, one handstand and one shoulderstand. I was wicked impressed with myself as I haven't done a headstand since elementary school. I was pretty scared too. They weren't pretty and not quite balanced, but hey I was upside down.

The Om store was closed on Thursday even though the door said open until 7pm and it was 5:20pm. Doesn't matter, found mat spray on the weekend and bought a second mat. I wound up on linoleum on the first two days and one mat does not offer a whole lot of cushyness. The second mat is a bit thicker and it's beautiful. Has natural stripes of purple, green and burgundy that flow into each other sort of - not distinct lines.

I loved this weekend. Kate Potter is amazing, inspiring, insightful and funny. I'll definitely be keeping my eye on her website for future opportunities to learn from her.

H and I made it to WI and I was down a pound...whoo hoo. It's been a while since I've seen a whole number. The stay was awesome, great hotel but after yoga we didn't do much. We were pretty exhausted. I can feel every single muscle.

It was good to come home and sleep in my own bed.

Tonight I might be seeing Pirates of the Carribean - At World's End. I just bought the 2nd one as I've never seen it. Oh well, I heard a review that said it's okay if you haven't seen the second one.

Transit and the city are talking today...again. Fingers are crossed there will be a settlement and no strike.

What else, we talked about Ayurveda over the weekend. I think I still have my training stuff from a bazillion years ago when Body Shop carried an Ayurveda line. I think we were before our time then.

I think that's it.

Please comment if you visit, I'd love to find you guys as well.

Unbelievable that you were doing handstands and shoulderstands! I'm gobsmacked. I can barely do the tree pose without wilting.;-)
You never cease to amaze me, Cowgirl.
And you're awesome for taking on 10 hours of yoga this weekend. Was there any Bikram?

Amazing 10 hours! 1 pound down is great news. We had a transit strike last week. Thankfully it only lasted the week. All the best.

I need to start doing yoga again. There is a yoga studio down the street from my house. Gotta go get a monthly pass or something.
