Update

Tuesday I was dismissed from Jury Duty, phew! Back to my regularly scheduled life. I'm glad I wasn't picked because the case was a doosey. It involved a sexual assault against a 12 year old. I do not want to spend the rest of my summer hearing details about this one.

Last night I took it easy and took a Level 1 class. It's still work but I just was not in the mood to put myself through intense work. I don't know how to word it without sounding cocky, you know what I mean? You wanna practice but not at the level you're use to. I guess that makes sense. The point is, I have no problems taking a "beginner" class and still feel like I can benefit from it.

I'm staying in the city this weekend apartment sitting for my parents. I hope I can squeeze in a class or two in that time. It would be nice. I don't usually practice on the weekends.

There's always something to work on, regardless of the class level. That's one of the things I love about yoga!

Ah, the beginner's mind. What a wonderful place to be.

Oh gosh, that kind of case would have made me cry. Anything with children or pets gets me so emotional, I'd find it hard to distance my emotions and be objective. Glad you didn't have to do it!

It's good to know that even at an advanced level, you can appreciate a beginner's class also. I really appreciate the way you think about yoga.

Some days it's great to slow it down a bit and enjoy a more restful practice. Do you ever find that it puts you in a more reflective and quiet mood and sets the pace for a more tranquil day? I have a great Shiva Rea DVD with lunar practices for the times when I need a more mellow practice.
