Tapping Out

Glass Bottom Boat, Negril
Had a great weekend including a three-hour yoga retreat reunion dinner at a Jamaican restaurant. Of course, I didn't get much done in the way of chores but that's the way it usually goes...

During the reunion dinner, talked with this woman, Emma, who hasn't been going to yoga lately because she's taken up Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. Emma will be glad when she's better at her activities so that she can stop wearing long-sleeved shirts because of scratches and bruises. She also talked about "tapping out" when the fighting gets to be too much. I also like how Emma talked about her goal was to get to two yoga classes this week. I love yoga goals.

Voiced my opinion about how we should have the equivalent of tapping out in yoga and Joy piped up to saucily say Child's pose is your tap out. So funny and she's right and I do have to say that the pose of the child is one of my favorite yoga poses. I like for my energy centers to be close to the ground.

I'm also craving more yoga. I've been averaging two classes per week but my other activities don't leave much room for going to a studio so I'm planning to get with the program and get more serious about a home practice. I'm not planning on an hour-long situation but it would be nice to get in 15 to 20 minutes.


  1. First of all, I read that sentence as "yoga goats." Who doesn't love yoga goats??

    Last night I dreamed I went to a Zumba class with you. Apparently it's a lot of fun.
