Twisting The Night Away...

Because that is all class turned out to be last night and it was PERFECT! Just what I needed to get back into the Asana groove. They say twisting helps to release bad toxins in our system. I don't know about that but I was definitely feeling sluggish and ick and twist did relieve that. It just wakes up your system and mind overall. Surprisingly enough, I felt rather strong and solid. I was worried about weakness and tiring out too soon but that was not the case. I'm taking another class tomorrow because I do not want to lose my momentum. I just feel so great right now!

Here's some fun cupcake news...

Back to the mat!!!

This evening I am doing something I haven't done in over a month. TAKE A YOGA CLASS!! I am ashamed to admit it but money has been very tight and my shop and other blog have been taking up more and more of my time. While I do greatly appreciate the tips for a home practice, I just can't get my head to that space! When I do manage to practice at home, it just feels like stretching, it doesn't feel like yoga to me. I just love being in a classroom setting and sharing a practice even if it's in a room full of strangers. I know there are some of you who feel the complete opposite and that's cool too. Everyone receives yoga differently.

So thanks to Uncle Sam and this tax rebate many of us Americans are getting this week, I am off to take a class tonight, I'm not sure where yet. I have three yoga studios that I consider my hOMe space. Of course I'm worried that my body will be too rusty. I'm a little self-conscious because even though the scale says I've lost a couple of pounds, I still feel a little sloppy. Regardless, I am very excited!

What is the longest you have gone without a practice?

I also started reading a lovely novel about a yoga instructor that I plan to write about once I finish. I can't wait to see how it ends!

Oh! And while I'm here, I wanted to share a blog entry posted on Yoga Journal, it made me smile: Yoga Teachers Eat Cupcakes, Too.

Karma In A Can

This is too cute to not share...

Karma In A Can. Ok it might be a little hokey but sometimes the act of actually spraying can help feel like the start of a new slate.

Cupcake Dance

It has been TOO long since my last post. I haven't neglected this site, there are just periods where it takes a backseat to other things going on but I thought I would pop in and say a quick hello and share a video someone sent me, it's called the Cupcake Waltz...

How sweet?
