RESTorative YOGA

Fancy Red Spring Flowers

I've had a peculiar week. It began really well. We used tone for the first time in class this week and so this was a big deal for students who have been working in line for four months and were chomping at the bit to get into using value on their drawings. I did a fun demo and they followed along with me then we put a spotlight on the model and turned all the lights out (but a few lights on behind everyone so students could still see what they were drawing) ... this is always a favourite class.

I put on my Canada Goose 3/4 length coat and walked 2 miles to my first restorative yoga class and then 2 miles back afterwards. What a wonderful afternoon that was. The class was so relaxing and the new Chopra Center down by the lake is luxurious. I am very glad I took out a membership.

On Thursday I slipped in a dark hallway at school and reinjured by back. I am trying not to think about it and am attempting to do all the right things so I can get better. UGH! I don't like taking pain killers but when something like this occurs I have to.

I am optimistically hopeful that this will resolve itself soon ... I have had to take a day off again and will most likely need to continue taking more time off to fully heal ... I'll be seeing my Doctor as soon as I can get up and out (I've already talked to them about it - I know the drill).

Hope everyone is enjoying January and keeping on track with goals. Slow & Steady!

    Like the pics of the flowers. Sorry about your back, will this injury interfere with your doing the yoga, hope you heal quickly. I hardly cough at all anymore, just have the feeling there's always something in my throat so am constantly trying to clear it out, which drives me batty, but am doing much, much better. It's a cold day here, they say by this evening the wind chill will be at -5, I will be all warm and snuggly in Mario on my lap in the apartment. We do have to out today as Mario has a 2 p.m. vet appointment for a checkup, I hope it's all good and then we'll take him home and then go out for a few groceries. Healing thoughts for your body.

    I'm so sorry to hear that you injured your back again. That can be so painful and frustrating. I hope that it will heal quickly and you will be back to your regular routine very soon! Take care!
