Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life, Fat Lip

I just started reading Mindful Yoga Mindful Life by Charlotte Bell. I'm still pretty early in the book but I am enjoying it so far and feel like she is speaking to ME. Don't you love when that happens? I'll write a real book report once I'm finished.

My face met the floor last night in what seemed like one of the most challenging classes I have ever taken. The theme seemed to have been "What can't Marilyn do?" and I walked out with a fat lip, nothing too crazy, my face was closer to the floor than I thought at one point. I wish I can tell you the name of the pose I was working on when it occurred but I can't. It was an arm balance that didn't quite happen. But it's all good. Happy Wednesday!

Goodness! Well, Marilyn I don't know what your Chinese animal is, and after meditating on what year of the Rat means to me as a "horse" it would mean another fat lip THEN things would look up!

We look forward to the progress report! :)

Thanks Joy. Actually that was not the arm balance we were doing. I need to dig up a photo somewhere.
