Monday Monday DOMS

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

I really paid for a week of not getting on my mat much lately. I got back to business Friday night/Sat/Sun, which were all fantastic days of yoga.

But now, Monday morning, I am feeling it!  I welcome DOMS, it means that I have been asking my body to change, to be strong enough to get on my mat and get grounded.

I took a lot of pictures over the weekend. Our Boy Besinjis escaped the yard and totally freaked me out in the process.   We’ve had a lot of rain and never considered that the topology of our yard had changed quite a bit

It took some time to locate and bring the Wild Boys back Home.  I was honestly freaking out, for it made me head trip to back when we lost our Quesito, our Beutiful Sweet Brindle Boy. That was such a horrible loss – of a 2 year old sweetheart. I would be devastated if either Romeo or Lucien was injured. But all is good, and in the process, my husband and I patched up the hole and got to enjoy the beauty of the Balloon Fiesta.  I think that was the silver lining of the experience

I took a few yoga pictures over the weekend, but here is my favorite.  I don’t have the time to sort that others, it is time to begin the ritual of getting ready for work.


I hope everyone has a lovely day. Monday, Monday, I am grateful that I am alive to enjoy mine.  I am blessed. I know that, but man, Monday Monday Blues until the coffee kicks in


Durango CO is so beautiful

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.

Yinny yoga. How I love you….


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 🙂
