I wrote this post for a site that I have been contributing to called YogaBudo. Please wander over there and see some of the other things I have been writing.
I took (yoga) class this afternoon at 12. It was a great class, with one of my very favorite teachers. I wasn’t sure how it would go seeing as how I’ve been fairly exhausted lately. But Tuesdays are my day off and I was determined to get on the mat. I slept better last night than I have in weeks and woke feeling more rested than I have in a very long time. So, the noon class seemed like the best choice for me. I was rested, dressed and ready.
I got to the studio, got my mat, water, towels and went in the room.
Hello heat, hello dizzy!! Why am I so dizzy? Only breathing? Ha! Wow, Roy looks so tan. I need to go to Spain. No NO NO Focus!!! Half Moon, ahhhhhh. I am the queen of the backbend. I can do any backbend any time I want. Oh wait, not the forward bend. OUCH OUCH OUCH!! Hamstrings, I hate you. Warm up, Balance. Kick out, hold it. Lock the knee. Why did I wear these shorts? No no NO FOCUS!!!! Touch it, touch it!! Touch the forehead, now the top of the head. Man, I used to not be able to do this. I am super yogini. I am the awesomest. I love you Triangle, I hate you Triangle.. Toe stand. Snap, crackle, pop. Right knee not cooperating. Forget it. Just do the posture, no don’t do the posture, where is my balance? Change, sweat, water, breathe. Mmmmm, water. Floor…
Spine, so stiff. Not the queen of the backbend anymore. Stupid Cobra pose. More heat. Why is it so hot? Sweat sweat sweat. Bow pose. Balance on the hipbones? Is she serious? I wonder when LOST comes on again. Oh look, water break. Mmmmm water. oh.. maybe not. No water, nasuea. Ugh, I know better. Almost there, can do it. CAN DO IT. I would marry you all over again, Camel. I am super yogini.. WILL NOT skip Rabbit. WILL NOT. Ouch, neck is stiff. Shoulders, so stiff. Must do the posture. Did it get hotter? Oh wait, I feel cool air. Stretch, twist.. Breathe. Water.. Done.
Focus, I ain’t got it.
