From the mind of a not-so-sleepy Yogi
Good Morning, Wednesday! I hope everyone is off to a great start today. Since I have been in Colorado, here there and everywhere, I haven't had too much time for my wonderful yoga classes. I came across this post on Garance Dore and it made me laugh simply because it's how I feel sometimes when it comes to dragging my ass out of bed to get a work out in. Actually, who am I kidding? Honestly, the only days I drag my ass out of bed for yoga are on Saturdays, otherwise a 6am yoga class and I do not mix. Okay, I went once to the 6am class... but because I started to feel nauseated and my body wondered what the heck was going on at 6, when I still could have been in my warm bed sleeping until the light begins to seep in (yes, I'm lucky...) I haven't ventured out that early in awhile. When I did get up really early, I have to say that my thoughts scattered from "oh, why am I doing this. I can barely balance to put on my yoga pants" to "Okay, I am already in my car, no turning back." Upon arrival, and doing my first downward dog of the day, nausea hit and the guy next to me was breathing so loudly, I thought he was snoring. But, by the end of the class it was only 7:15 and I had my whole day set with the feeling that, "yes, I could accomplish anything." Yippee! Wonderful! And upon my ecstatic feeling I then, excitedly told all of my friends that they should join my yoga class...
