So why did I decide to do yoga school/shala?
Don’t you ever wonder where the time goes?
It’s been one year since I started this blog. Wow! I’m so happy to be able to write that down. Here are some of my musings on this auspicious occasion…
Can you think on your feet? What would you do if “the game changed” on you?
When is something considered to be a habit? I think yoga has become that for me because it has permeated my life, thoughts and actions. I can tell that I approach things a bit differently than I have in the past. Trust me to say that I’m far from being a saint (ask my family). But that’s why they call it a yoga practice! So what have I been doing that makes me say all of this? I’ve been busy educating myself about yoga and veterinary medicine.
Yoga shala started earlier than usual and Dianne was determined that we stay on schedule. We needed to take a group photo, write a test, practice yoga, do some kirtan chanting and share in a final feast. Seemed like an overwhelming to-do list but it all worked out. I think that time stood still for us that day…or a least we hoped it would. This was our last class together.
“I’m tired after working so hard today!”, I told one of my yoga teacher training colleagues. We had just finished a five hour workshop.
Yeah, the title of this post is campy but the sunlight reflecting off the yellow maple leaves outside my window inspired me to be a little lighter today. Hee, hee!
This was a weekend all about A’s – anatomy, Anusara, attitude, alignment and action.
A cool, breezy Fall afternoon. I was glad to be indoors and warming up at the studio.
Dianne started us off on a discussion of the three main eras in yoga philosophy: pre-classical (based on teachings called the Vedas and the Upanishads), classical (which is all about Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras) and post-classical (Vedantic and Tantric philosophy). Geez. What would I do without Wikipedia? LOL.
