Tuesday Morning

Kelly and I took a lovely trip down to San Marcos yesterday. We organized the props in the studio and then we went boating.

The San Marcos School of Yoga is going to open in May with a lovely group of teachers offering a variety of classes- from Trigger Point Yoga to Restorative Yoga to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and I think a happy-hour flow class is on deck as well. The space will be open as a cooperative so if anyone is looking for a place to rent for classes, send me an email (christinasell108@gmail.com) or call me (512-665-3743) and I can talk to you about it. I am not doing any teaching there right now since I am not in town enough to keep a class alive without a team of substitute teachers in tow but it is an awesome space and a great group of folks to get involved with. More on that as it evolves so stay tuned.

The boating was fun. We spent close to two hours on the water and it was perfect day to be out. It was warm sunny and the water was fast but manageable. I am bit sore across my chest and shoulders but it was totally worth it. We had a great time.

I made it back ion time to get to Peggy's class which was an interesting foray into some restoratives and pranayama. I got some great insight into vamadevasana and how it is going to help me with some other poses. She only taught a few poses, we did a lot of long holds and I felt fantastic afterwards. Anne and I were talking about how a class like that really shows how potent the advanced postures are. When 10 postures in two hours can shift your state of consciousness that dramatically and open your body that profoundly you just gotta be wowed. Anyway, I left feeling centered, soft and yet alert. Love it.

We did:
half baddha konasana/virasana
rope 1
rope 2
supine twist which reminded me of parivritta ardha chandra chapasana but on the floor
eka pada raja kapotasana with back leg in ardha bhekhasana
ardha baddha padma pascimottasana
sirsasana- eka pada, parsvaikapada and padmasana

So this Thursday I am subbing the Group Practice for Mandy-ji at The Love Yoga Coop. So show up at 4:00-6:00 with $10 and come play. I have asked for pose requests so if there is something you want to work on, drop me a line and I will see if we can incorporate it into the session.

Also- I am teaching Teacher Training all weekend at Breath and Body Yoga again so I will be teaching the public classes there on: Friday from 4:30-6:00, Saturday from 10:00-11:30 and Sunday from 10:00-11:30.

Then I am out of town from May 3- May 13 and again from May 16-May 24. I am toying with the idea of a group practice on Saturday, May 14 since my Dallas gig is cancelled. Anyone interested?
