Something New

Headed to gentle yoga after work and the teacher that I was expecting wasn't there but I heard just what I needed to hear from Erin:
Your intention might be -- I intend to do nothing but breathe and relax.
Thank you for the reminder. Think my new favorite pose is supported supta baddha konasana a.k.a. supported reclining bound angle pose.

And supta reminds me of another yoga teacher, Liz, who said that when you hear supta it's usually a reclining pose and how I love to hear supta.

Had planned to go to Zumba so I checked Shawny's Facebook page before heading out but class was canceled. Shawny's been ill and I guess no sub was available.

As much as I like to exercise, it's hard for me to pull myself together to exercise after 7:00 p.m. but I grabbed a few DVDs and went at it. Looking for variety, cracked the seal on Country Line Dance Party! I'm not a fan of country music but I was surprised by how fast the first 10 minutes went by. It's definitely nice to do something new.

Finished listening to the Aloud LA podcast on my return walk home yesterday. Like the James Baldwin quote that Charles Blow referenced:
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.


  1. I don't like country music either, but I think everyone loves line dancing. I think I'll look for something online, because I have to do everything you do (except yoga and rock climbing...)

    <3 the Baldwin quote.

  2. LOL and...

    The Baldwin quote is pretty powerful.

  3. I'm going to add canopy climbing to the list of activities where I won't be following in your footsteps.

    Also, most of your yoga poses sound like sex stuff.

  4. LOL about the canopy climbing and now that you mentioned it, some of the yoga poses do sound like sex stuff.
