The Yoga Date
I know that I have been a bad blogging yogini lately but since returning from India my life feels like it has expanded significantly. I am teaching 5 mornings a week plus newly expanded and expanding evening classes, working at the museum three days a week, and really opening myself to the Rhode Island yoga community by having weekly yoga dates out there in the world. Since leaving the sun of Mysore I have stepped into some seriously sunny yoga glows all over the state. My first Sunday back I went to Eyes of the World Yoga right in the heart of Providence's east side. The following Sunday I went to Ashtanga Yoga Rhode Island. This is right where I last left off with the blog. Next up was a two and a half hour prana flow immersion with one of Shiva Rea's deputies, Coral Brown at All That Matter's yoga in Wakefield RI and just this Sunday I went with my very dear friend and second time house guest Cyndi to Raffa Yoga for a 9am vinyasa class with one of the students in my Mysore program there.
Cyndi: "Never underestimate the power of the yoga date."
What I have learned from this experiment is that it is good to get out there even if it is not the style or method that you study. I take practice so seriously that once a week it is great to surrender move and groove in a new pattern both in body and breath and have some fun.
Practice yesterday left me sweaty, happy, connected, excited about my future at Raffa as a teacher, and with one of my best Kapotasana's ever!
Where should I go this Sunday?
