We had super fun classes in Austin tonight. At 4:30 we had a rousing back bend class with lots of work with the chairs and a foray into scorpion pose. Everyone worked really hard and lots of people went quite deep into their back bends. We had just enough people for the number of chairs in the room so I decided to just go for it and build the class around chair work. It wasn't anything that should be on certification video, necessarily, but the work with chairs, when you really figure out how to utilize them is so powerful. I have done so much of it to work my way into the advanced back bends.
At 6:00 we worked toward hanumanasana, which was its own kind of intensity. I used a sequence that rotated through a quad stretch, a hip stretch, a hamstring stretch, and a twist all the way to hanumanasana by the end. Lots people got down to the floor and almost everyone was deeper than usual.
Katherine, Susan, Kelly, Anne and Mark all double-dipped.
So, during the workshop with Des, someone hit Lisa's car. She told Lisa she did not see anything on the car but if Lisa needed to talk with her about it I would know how to get a hold of her. Lisa found a dent and the thing is we do not know who actually hit her car! Lisa described her to me but it sounded like everyone who was there- fit, petite, dark hair, in yoga clothes, etc.) So if you are reading this and you remember hitting a red car, please email me so that I can put you in touch with Lisa.
Okay- so that is about it for now. I am looking forward to some time off and to a major scorpion pose practice of my own. That and some time on the river. Yippee.
