Note: these are my personal inner thoughts. you have been warned!
8/21 Sunday – 11:00AM YES! I am so excited for class! Today’s class intention: I’m going to pay extra attention to how she cues her poses and the intention of breath. <class starts> Is it just me or is class super hard today? Wait – no negative talk. Today’s class is full of opportunity to learn. Firefly? Yeah I can do that pose. Wait – why is everyone off the floor and I am still on the floor? Think positive Jenn – remember? Laura Mary says we become what we think. Believe you are a firefly and you are flying! WHY ISNT THIS WORKING? I am STILL on the ground. Whew. ok we are finally out of that pose. Was that just the warm up? ACK! Okay… it is going to be a long day…. savasana – finally! I bet I cannot mess this one up…
8/21 Sunday – 6:00PM Round two! The chance to push myself to be better. The first class was a warm up and now you can give it all you got. <Laura Mary cues for half moon> You got this Jenn! uh – oh… timbeeerrrr. Yep. I just fell out of position. Ok, getting back into position. Wait! Now it is time for inversions and binds. Why are my hands not reaching? One step at a time Jenn, you cannot rush this. We are now partnering up for head stand. Tulsi is amazing! Look at her go. Okay, you can be like that too! Focus on the pose and breathe Jenn. Focus… focus…focus….oh noo. That loud boom was me. At least no one heard me fall.
“Jenn want me to spot you?” Tulsi asked.
DOH! “Um, sure of course” I responded.
Now Jenn, you have someone helping you – don’t. mess. it. up.
<I start getting into the pose>
Man, Tulsi is a good spotter. She is good at giving direction too on how to be successful with this pose. I have a lot of studying to do this week! Ok ok enough, back to focusing on my poses. I feel like I am really working it today. My arms are a little shaky but I will be ok. So. Many. Poses. Oh yay! Happy baby! We are almost done with class!
Wait… class is over?! NOOOOOO I cannot believe it – when I started to get into a groove, class ends! Boo…I guess there is always Tuesday!
8/21 Sunday – 7:00PM Meditation class? PERFECT! This music is killing me.. all I wanna do is write short skits about birds doing yoga. Ok maybe I should have a diverse group of animals going yoga. 1….2… 3… breathe. Wait ack! I am off. I need to start over. Never mind I guess we are counting to 10 now… are we done yet? Meditation is great when guided. But when there is too much silence, my mind def wanders… like below…
