Day #22 of #letsgetflexy

Hooray it is Wed – which means i am teaching Yoga at IDRI… But maybe this is the last time; the space we use has finally been rented out.  I’m not sure of their renovation timeline.  Oh well, it was tons of fun while it lasted. I have learned so much in the process.  And the students have become so strong. I am ever so pleased with their progress.

Relentless rain outside. Glad I’m inside sipping coffee in the comfort of my meditation space.  Will start getting ready for work in 15 minutes.  Steeling myself for a rough commute, wanna hit the road by 5:30 today.

Ok, here is the picture of the day. One from The Ashram’s big studio (above) and IDRI “Yoga studio” (below). I love the duality of the rooms.  I love the big studio so much.  I find the colors so soothing,  Teaching under fluorescent lighting in IDRI’s space has been an interesting challenge.  No way to turn off those dang lights.  But we have fun nonetheless.

and a couple #stopdropandyoga photos that I’m exceptionally pleased with.  Timed selfies, they are an extra challenge

Gosh I can’t wait for my iPHONE6 to arrive.  I am stoked about the camera improvements, really wonder if I’ll see an observable difference… 🙂  Have  a great day. 🙂

Day 21 of #letsgetflexy

Listening to Pandora as I contemplate what to say today.  Billy Idol White Wedding has just come on. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the video, here goes….

I had a lot of fun yesterday with Susantha taking photos for #letsgetflexy.  I am indebted to him for all his assistance as a photographer – and for all the encouragement he’s given me over the years at IDRI. He is my favorite office mate ever, one of the sweetest and mellowest people I know.  I will miss him a lot when I move to Albuquerque.

Here we go.  Taken in my IDRI “yoga studio”

So it is Tuesday.  Only Tuesday.  Hmmmm, it is a good thing that I’m going to meditate now and take Ali’s Power Class before head to IDRI. Try and get as positive as possible, my to do list at work is giving me *Major* stress 😦  I have faith that my practice will fuel my day, I’ve just got to do the work.

I found out yesterday that the 5th floor “Yoga Studio” office space has been rented. So this week’s class might well be the last; they are going to start renovations shortly.  I need to email everyone involved and give them warning. I’m bummed, I have really enjoyed teaching there.  I also just like going up to the 5th floor to work on my to do list, away from the bustle.  If I had internet access I’d camp out up there, lol.

Okay, time to plug in.  Have a wonderful day.

Go Hawks!!!

Seahawks game starts in under an hour.  I am looking forward to chilling on the sofa, I slept exceedingly poorly last night and doing a bunch of nothing sounds rather nice.

I did just force myself to go outside to do the #letsgetflexy pose of the day – it is rather gloomy out so I donned the brightest outfit I could find.  I include a crow I did for a #stopdropandyoga tag that I got.  I feel considerably better having taken a few minutes to stretch but oh my it was chilly out there.  Definitely will be watching the game from underneath a blanket

I plan on taking Gary’s 3 p.m. Power class followed by teaching Yin at 4:30.  It is going to be a great day, I just know it 🙂

I am teaching Yang at 10 a.m today!

Found out last night that I get to sub today. Most exciting news ever!!!

I went to bed at 8 p.m. knowing I’d wake up at 3 (which I did) . I’m working on my playlist.  I am adding Maroon 5 to it.  I wish I had unlimited time to find kickass Yoga Music  I would LOVE suggestions!

Here we go – Day 18 of #letsgetflexy.  I need to get back to this emergency playlist session.  And of course, I have sequencing to ponder.  I love teaching yoga. Excited for teacher training to commence. I am so grateful.  Namaste!

#letsgetflexy Day 17

Taught a fun Power class this morning.  I love love love teacher Power.  I have so much to learn but everyone looked like they got a full experience and there were a lot of smiles after class.

Here is my shot of the day:

Just got to IDRI – have a meeting in a few minutes then writing a report.  Hopefully I’ll have time to do an experiment as well but I’m determined to get the writing out of the way.  I have Davin’s Power class at 5 p.m. to look forward to

have a phenomenal Friday. Don’t forget to stretch!  Your body craves it 🙂

Namaste
