Okay, I am tired of feeling sick. Plain tired of it. After my whole ovarian fiasco, my digestion was still off and now I have a cold (or perhpas it is an allergy thing. I am not sure.)and I am in the menstrual hut. When this little phase passes and I feel great again, you better believe I will appreciate it. Nothing like an exercises in contrast.
Yesterday was a pretty fun day. I went to a Nia class, then had lunch at a Cuban place on South Congress with Kelly (not a lot for vegetarian types there but we had a great veggie sandwich and they make their own fries and I had a few bites of Kelly's tres leches cake which was out of this world.) Then I hung out with Anne and Milo a little, went to therapy and then taught yoga. Classes were pretty fun last night (making me oh-so-bummed to be giving up the Thursday afternoon slot, which has become kind of like an institution in some ways. But I am gone 13 of 16 Thursdays on the next schedule so that just makes no sense. Plus I travel out most Friday mornings and so being home Thursday night is smarter for me.)
We worked with backbends in the 4:30 advanced class, more on backbending poses like ardha chandra chapasana and so forth and culminated in some work in kapotasana. The 6:00 Flow class (where I put on both music and my alter ego teaching self and pretend to be less picky, demanding and critical-) went well also. We did a really strong standing pose sequence that people seemed to enjoy. I know I would have liked it if I walked into that flow class. But well, that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Anyway, it was fun.
Not a lot of double dippers anymore on Thursdays. I think flow after advanced is more than many can face. Susan however stayed for both classes and so did one other person but I cannot remember her name right now.
Kelly and I came home after classes and had a date night at home. We made a yummy meal and had a good bottle of wine and stayed up too late for two people with colds but it was a really good thing in other ways. Today is sort of a day off. I will prep for my Immersion this weekend and try to actually get some order in my office. Also I have a certification video to watch and Arrested Development came yesterday from netflix. (I love that show.)
OH- I do need your help. My friend James just had hip surgery and he wrote me asking for recommendations for movies that are uplifting and inspiring. I thought I could put the question out here and solicit some help from the you all.
