So Fresh, So Calm

I told Patti that I had planned on going to Zumba followed by yoga but I had run out of steam. Instead, I took a really warm, salt bath then headed to yoga.

Your evening sounds wonderful Patti wrote.

It was wonderful I wrote back. I sometimes forget to ruminate on the roses.

Madonna was in a saucy mood -- asking us to do a wicked boat pose from the wall. She would, though, turn around and give us a luxurious counter stretch.

I absolutely adore downward facing dog from the wall. As Madonna said, the wall makes you feel DFD in a whole different way.

At the end of class, I was touched by Gail who made sure that another yogi was comfortable during savasana. Do you need a bolster. Do you need a blanket? Do you need...? 

As I sat at my desk today, I noticed my posture and there was marked improvement. There must have also been marked improvement in my mood because one of my coworkers told me that I am always so calm...


  1. I love reading about your yoga adventures! You're so descriptive I actually get interested in something that I generally loathe :-)

    Do you think you are calmer? That's a nice benefit. My friends generally think I am cool, calm, maybe even impassive, but in fact I am a seething cauldron of emotions. I guess I just don't display outwardly as much.

  2. gingerzingi,

    Thanks. Glad that I have not made you turn away with all of my yoga tales... ;)

    I used to seethe but, now, my episodes of anger are less frequent and less intense.

    I'm definitely much calmer.
