Yesterday was Saturday and I had to work. That’s pretty bad, because I am a teacher. Teachers are not supposed to work on Saturdays. I had a work thing from 8:30 to 4 pm. I looked at every yoga studio I could think of in the city, and there were no classes before or after that time. I really did not want to skip a day, so I decided to practice at home.
I have a yoga dvd, but it’s the extreme-sport version of yoga. There are side planks and dolphin poses in there. Good stuff for when you are really into it. There are two levels, but I’ve never gotten past the first one, even on a good day.
I had very little energy left after this wonderful (sarcasm) day of work. I decided to look online and found some great “evening yoga” videos. One of them had moon salutations. I really enjoy moon salutations, but most classes are sun salutation based.
I did both moon and sun salutations, then I was a little worried that I might have messed up the universe by doing them back to back. Everything seemed ok this morning, so I guess it all worked out.
If you’re not familiar with moon salutations, it goes like this.
I did another video that consisted of cat/cow poses, bridge and lots of lovely twists. I decided to do my final savasana in the bathtub, with Strawberry Shortcake scented bubbles.
In case you’re wondering, this is what me doing yoga in my pyjamas at home looks like.
I was disappointed that I couldn’t get to a class, but I think it all worked itself out in the end. I was very tired, and it was nice to stay in to practice instead of going out. I’m glad I didn’t miss day 13!
