It's Tuesday and I Don't Have a Clever Title for this Post

It's spitting snow out there. Hubby insists this is because I decided to put my winter coat in storage. Well, the yoga studio will be nice and warm this morning anyway.

We got the sorry news recently that one of our beautiful yoga teachers has breast cancer. She is in her early 50's I think, but like most yoga teachers, looks 30. I am sad that she has to go through this, but thinking good thoughts for her full recovery. Lots of ohms going out for her. xxxooo

I'd taken myself off the yoga teaching schedule when I was finishing writing The Christmas Village, and then stayed off because we will be leaving soon. But I sub for other's classes and I'm doing several this month. It's nice to be able to teach some farewell classes.

Hey did I tell you that a famous actress practices at our studio? She came to my book signing too :-) Think "Love Story."

Today is work until about 2pm,

That's our studio, but I'm not in this picture

then handstand practice,


I CANNOT do THAT. But I'd like to.

then chanting class. I'm always tired by the time we get to chanting at 4:15, but I always feel better - relaxed - afterward. I call it my choir practice.
Okay, off I go! Have a great Tuesday. And take it easy today - there's a full moon and the energy is strong. So that's when you need to back off and have a little rest. Me, I'm always in favor of a little rest.

  8. Dear Melissa,
    Thanks for the tip about taking life easy today. I was wondering why I felt so sluggish when writing my posting for Tuesday. Normally I post around 11:30. Today I wasn't able to get the words right until 1:45!

    So soon I will leave the blogging world and take the rest of the day off.

    Peace.

    1. Yes, you're right. My book was The Christmas Village - you can read about it down the left side of the blog. I'm working on a sequel.

  10. I do yoga too, but seeing as classes are held in French here in Geneva, I've brought along Jillian Michaels' DVD. I'm exhausted by the end and my dog likes to try and lick my face during the up-facing-dog (irony!) move, but it's all worth it in the end.

    1. I used to do a private class with two ladies and the bog liked to lick their feet and faces during savasana. :-)

    1. It makes you feel good. I really don't care that much about the meaning of the words, I just like saying them and the beautiful sound it makes.
