Duo Yoga. So much fun!

I have been so f-ing busy that I haven’t blogged in a long time. Things are in general going quite well, but a new job, however cool it may be, is still time consuming and ego-breaking.  I hate having to ask a bazillion questions. The documentation software that ATI uses is actually quite robust, butContinue reading “Duo Yoga. So much fun!”

Yin is In

I teach Yin Yoga at Vivify NM Yoga http://vivifynm.com My training is primarily via teachers from afar (they don’t know that, but they are) Erich Schiffmann.  He isn’t Yin per se, but I guess that is why I choose him first.  His style is Freedom Style, and I apply that to my approach to teaching,Continue reading “Yin is In”

It’s raining in Rio Rancho. Thank you Universe!

OMG we are getting precipitation here in the High Desert. It will make for a very messy walk with the Basenjis this morning, but boy do we need precipitation.  Yes!!!! I had the unexpected surprise of sub teaching a couple of yoga classes this week. Hooray!!!! It totally sucks that I lost my PTA jobContinue reading “It’s raining in Rio Rancho. Thank you Universe!”

Sometimes you gotta get dirty

It was **so* beautiful in the yard yesterday, We have some landscaping but a large majority of our acre is sand and desert plants.  I love walking barefoot in the sand, but tend to shy away from performing asana in the sand. 1) Asana in sand is a lot harder than on a mat 2)Continue reading “Sometimes you gotta get dirty”

WordPress!!!! Dammit!!!

Man!!!  I just wrote the most amazing of manifestos, the most brilliant life philosophy from a yogini/PTA that possesses Ph.D in Bacteriology.. I assure you, you would have enjoyed my best essay on life; eloquent, concise, and fucking hilarious….But Google quit unsuspectedly, and said manifesto is trapped in a draft that I can’t access. OhContinue reading “WordPress!!!! Dammit!!!”

One of my favorite yoga postures – Wheel Pose/Urdhva dhanurasana

I taught 3 yoga classes back to back yesterday. I  really had a lot of fun doing so. Especially as they were all different styles – Hot/Sweaty, Gentle Foundational and Yin.  I got to see so many of my tribe.  I met some new and cool people. I’m so grateful to teach at Vivify.  IContinue reading “One of my favorite yoga postures – Wheel Pose/Urdhva dhanurasana”

DOMS

Delayed onset muscle soreness. I’ve got a mild case of it, and I couldn’t be more pleased.  I have pushed myself physically over the weekend, after a week of being pushed mentally.  No complaints, but I need to find a blend each day of the two. I really love my new job.  I have soContinue reading “DOMS”

Stale Items on a To-Do List

I managed to cross one off my list, and I’m grateful.  It was turning on the irrigation system.  I’ve been meaning to do it for a few weeks now.  But today, many plants were essentially BEGGING for water. I am grateful that the husband taught me how to do it. Lucien the Basenji puppy thinksContinue reading “Stale Items on a To-Do List”

A loss for words

I miss blogging.  Most of my thoughts of late have been of classified material.  Not for the government, but nothing I feel like sharing with cyberspace.  Plus, I’ve been pretty busy catching up with boring sh*t around the house, things that have piled up since I started school. God, I’m glad to be done withContinue reading “A loss for words”
