Rouse.Yoga = Pass it On

Grateful to join the Rouse Family. Check us out! Your first week of unlimited live-streaming with a wide variety of awesome teachers is FREE. Check out https://rouse.yoga

I’m live-streaming my FreeForm stretchy class today (1/10/2021) at 5 pm MST.

My style includes long stretches – sorta 1-2 min vs traditional Yin classes of 5ish minutes. Traditional Yin is truly awesome, I just gravitate to teaching shorter holds. It gives me a chance to also spend time on the upper body. My teaching style is multi-level Vibe. If you reach out prior to class, you help me guide the Vibe.

Mulling over class theme of the day – and how to promote my classes.

  • Tuesdays 12 noon
  • Thursdays 5 pm PST (to be posted today)

I have self-diagnosed computer dyslexia. Super embarrassing. I laugh it off, but underneath I am so embarrassed. It is not that I am stupid, and I do my best to figure things out. I experience a GREAT deal of stress that turns my dyslexia button on. I dunno. Things always work out.

I am compelled to send out major shout-outs and love to my anonymous computer angels that have guided me through the years. I love you all so very much. You have earned major karma points. Now I need to manifest another who will help me with a website.

I’m 8-weeks post-rotator cuff repair. Making good progress. I have full range of motion, and the pain is way down. Sleeping can be problematic. My arm is so weak, but now my physical therapy can step it up a notch with resistance exercises.. So motivated to get stronger again. But I also have to be very mindful 🙂

A few pictures from yesterday. I am very mindful to not let my left arm do much assistance at this time.

Baby steps. But better than nothing! I am grateful that I’m bouncing back – as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I’ve worked with many patients who struggled with shoulder repair. It is a pretty intense surgery!

I think I might puke

I am so concerned about this election. I oh so badly want the Orange AssHat out of office. I am so worried about the rotten cheating things that he will do before ousted.

I do like the idea of him going to jail and all his funds siezed. The billion he owes…. Ah, how fun it will be for him when that money comes due. Just REALLY don’t want to have a leader that owes 1B to God Knows What.

I wanted to practice a Yin-nish style class today, but just didn’t get to it. Too busy getting sucked into the news. I Tried to be be Strong and not look….

Tomorrow – Yoga Mat – it is you and me 🙂

“Name a weakness”

Since I’m officially “separated” from ATI, it is tantamount to find a job! I leave in good standing, it is COVID related “separation”. So honing up on my interviewing skills and meditating on what it is that I truly desire. And get ready to answer questions such as the dreaded weakness Q.

Desire = My ideal job involves freely using Yoga-based physical therapy.

Weaknesses

High anxiety is arguably my #1 weakness and nemesis. Years of psychotherapy has helped me keep it in better perspective and not cave as much.. Not really sure why I’m even bringing it up with you, Cyberspace crickets. 🙂 I guess I’m just want to send it out there, maybe someone will perchance upon it and “get it”.

#2 weakness -caring way too much about what others think.

#3 is temporary. It is left upper extremity weakness and pain. Underwent left rotator repair a week ago, and it has been very emotional and painful. I’m in for a long recovery. Trying to view as a learning experience from clinician point of view. This is of little consolation in the middle of the night when my biceps/brachialis start to spasm.

Being in a sling on one’s dominant arm complicates everything I do. I miss my downward dog therapy so much! My mat is my tether; trying to not to feel too much of a shell of me.

Looking for a Yoga therapy-heavy job is definitely complicated by not being able to do any weight-bearing on left shoulder and drive myself places. I know how to teach without getting on my own mat. I do not need to demo – there are plenty of amazing teachers that don’t. But I am left-handed. Everything I do takes way too long. Meh.

One nice thing it that I’m learning how to use my iPHONE11. Perfect example of something that I would typically procrastinate, but being laid up in many ways – I am getting a few things done 🙂

A little Manic Monday Practice

I cannot believe how much difficulty I’ve encountered loading this video. Electronics sure hate me. The cherry on top of my aggravation is that I was blocked from playing the song.  So, if you want to practice with me – put on the official video and get silly 🙂
