Sunday morning yoga

Sunday morning yoga

I wish I had something more exciting to tell you, like 'Oh I went on this amazing adventure and you'll never believe what happened!' The truth is, however, this weekend was pretty quiet and uneventful (unless you count being rerouted through small German towns due to autobahn construction and subsequently getting lost despite having a navigation system in the car (that kept telling me to turn onto pedestrian only walkways)). Saturday night found me juicing up a fridge full of greens, and it cracked me up because Saturday night drinks aren't what they used to be! I mean, I wonder what 23 year old me would've said if she knew that in a few years fresh green juices on a Saturday night would make her happier than a college night out with no cover and penny drink specials. Anyway. Then I curled up to finish Osho's book on courage, and started a new read.

On Sunday, I taught yoga and was psyched to see a couple faces I haven't seen since I taught in Germany last winter. The clip below is part of the warm up I did before class. I like that wave through the spine thing where you go from downward dog to plank pose. It's a good way to gently loosen up the body, and nice practice for rolling over the toes. The focus of the class was twists, which are really detoxifying for the body. I think the sequencing of the class was well received, though I don't think they were pumped about the abs I had them do, haha. (Twisting requires good oblique support, so we did a lot of core strengthening poses.)

How was your weekend?
