Oh my aching Quads!

I am HURTING from class two days ago.  The instructor held me in the longest Warrior II I’ve EVER held – and I’ve held some long ones over the years!  Wowie.  Granted I’m not in the best of shape having taken a relative break from my asana practice in order to unpack the past few weeks…..I’ve been doing a lot of Yin and and a lot of arm balancing but very little Power Yoga.

A great example of arm balancing – handstand
paschimottanasana – very Yin 

Whoa.  I am GLAD I feel so sore.  It means that I pushed my body to become stronger.  That class made a difference.  I am definitely going to class today to squeeze out the metabolic waste that is making me ache :).  Today I’m going to go to Exhale.  I’ve taken classes from Jay and Rebecca (and I like them both a lot) but today I look forward to taking a class from the studio’s owner, Dee Jay.  I have heard really good things about her.

On an unrelated note, I had a dream that I was back working at IDRI and they were doing all sorts of kooky food microbiology experiments.  I got chastised for wearing the wrong color lab coat by a former supervisor, who shall remain nameless.  I was sorta glad when I work up – but what woke me up was one of the loudest claps of thunder that I think that I’ve ever heard.  It was a strange night!

On another  unrelated note, I wasted a TON of time this morning trying to church up the blog with a new theme.  But it messes EVERYTHING up when I do, so I ultimately reverted back to my old one and I feel rather frustrated.  My computer savvy son Fisher had better watch out – the next time I see him I’m going to plead with him to help me out!  He is after all the one who got me going on this.

So I’m going to do a little stretching and meditate. Gotta shake off the frustration. I wish you the loveliest of days .

Your handstand is majestic. I too LOOOOVE the soreness feeling! Best pain in the world!
That’s so funny, I had a nightmare of a time trying to ‘renovate’ an old blog. And still am! I think I spent the last 3 days trying to figure this thing out. Then I just gave up… lol

Thanks dearie. Yes, I like WordPress in many ways but boy I can waste time on the teensiest of things. My son is a computer guru, the next time he visits he is going to be FORCED to help me change my theme, etc. But I give up until I see him. Hope you are fabulous 🙂
