But I haven’t taken a whole of pictures. Just enjoying it for a change I guess. We are here for a wedding – today – and I am really excited. I love the Bride, she is an amazing woman and she is one of the reasons I didn’t quit Pima, when I wanted to so many times. I am grateful that I am a licensed PTA now and for my special classmates who kept me on track.
It has been lovely to be alone with my husband a little break from the Basenjis. We love them so very much, but a little pet free time is nice. Particularly when one of the pack is going through his adolescence and is constantly into trouble.
I did a little morning practice on the porch of the cute condo we are staying in, which I dedicated the everlasting love of the Bride and Groom. I do wish them the best marriage ever. 🙂 Namaste.
I spent so much time making the above flyer. I have so many yoga pictures. I have to figure out how to manage them all! I also thrashed on what pictures to use to convey my version of Yin. I wholeheartedly believe in the transformative potential when one balances their Yang and Yin practices. I love teaching Yin and want to build a strong Yin program at Vivify. As I gain experience as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I intend to inject my ever-expanding insights into deepening into poses. I have my homework to do!
There are other issues that contributed to me spending far too much time on this flyer. First, I am absolutely Lame when it comes to Canva. If you know me, you know that I am electronically-challenged. Getting better, but at a glacial speed. Additionally, I have a ton of yoga pictures. Over 12,000 at this point. I have to figure out a way to sort them or I may go bonkers! I realized in my quest that I have shitloads of Yang poses, but darn few Yinny photos that aren’t going to immediately scare potential students. I will have to remedy that, for I love my Yin classes.
I will embrace my inner Gumby Goddess – and try to invent magical fairy flexibility dust that I could sprinkle on my beloved students 🙂
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. I was extremely exhausted afterwards, but in a really good way.
Teaching Yin again today at 4 p.m. Really looking forward to it 🙂
I am also grateful to be working at Therapy Solutions in NM. The commute to Santa Fe is a little long, but it is a gorgeous drive and it is cool to get to know more about Santa Fe. I have much sight-seeing I want to do, but in good time. I’ve got a lot going on, and after work, I’m pretty tired after work, it is a super busy place and I feel like such a newbie it bums me out! But I’ll get the hang of things and I love how Physical Therapy and my Yoga practice is fusing into where I want my career to go. I want to work with people of all ages, and help them to rehabilitate and hopefully catch the yoga bug. Getting to know more about rehab makes me a much better yoga teacher. I love where this is going in my life.
There is a rest area near Santa Fe that I have “had” to stop at en route to work. The sun is just rising over the mountain range and I’ve been cooped up in a car. So of course I’m using this incredible backdrop for some yoga photography 🙂
Week 2 at Therapy Solutions underway. I have a whole lot to do to get up to speed. I am highly motivated.
I had great plans to study last night, but the “Fake News” like Hurricane Harvey and Russian collusion sort of sucked me in last night. I was also simply exhausted from trying to absorb a whole lot of information.
Please do understand that I am being facetious about FAKE NEWS and AlTERNATIVE FACTS. There is a lot of bullshit media sources but I honestly believe in numerous credible sources.. The Lies and actions of 45 truly frighten me and I firmly believe that he needs psychiatric testing. I do not believe that he is fit for Office. I’m confident that corruption runs extremely deep in this presidency. I want him to be removed from office.
The lack of action by the House/Senate to get him out of office really baffles me. Grow a damn spine and do what is right and stop refusing to cross political lines. This Presidency is dangerous for our country and removing him as soon as possible should be a bipartisan emergency. Mike Pence is super scary alternative, but Donald Trump makes my skin crawl. So I would just LOVE for Donald Trump to be removed from office in disgrace and hopefully fade into relative obscurity (prison would be nice!).
I think it might be time for me to take a much deserved break from the media. Apart from John Oliver, I am hooked on watching him.
