Random Thoughts on Yoga

So originally I had thought I might sell some more clothes today. However I asked on Twitter if it was weird, and y’all saved me from myself. Apparently it IS weird (and probably was when I sold clothes last time too) so off to donation / plato’s closet with them.

Instead I’m going to talk about yoga.

Yoga Mats

I feel asleep on my mat BEFORE class started yesterday.

But aside from that, I am almost finished with my new student pass at 502 Power Yoga here, and it’s my first time trying a Baptiste style class. It’s similar to power flows I’ve done before, but very very fast paced. It has really grown on me.

I’ve always thought it would be cool to become a yoga instructor. I love that yoga is an  exercise that is so good for the body, mind and soul. I think it’d be so awesome to get to know the practice so much better, improve my own, and potentially be able to teach on the side.

I never really looked that seriously into it because I didn’t really have the time or money to put into training.

Except now 502 is offering winter teacher training. They are also offering an weekend seminar on adjusting and assisting next month. And I want to do it SO BADLY, but it makes NO SENSE for me right now.

1. I don’t have the money to pay for it.

2. When would I teach? Something tells me medical school and residency aren’t full of free time.

And it bums me out. I think it’s part of this “glide year.” I’m not able to be in school yet, so I’m not really doing something I’m passionate about. I am just itching to get back to something that I love and keeps me engaged. Hopefully medical school fills that role — awesome, new, fascinating, HARD things each day!

SUP Yoga - Mom & Clare

(SUP yoga with my mom last summer!)

So for now I will use the end of my intro pass and then figure out what kind of package I can fit into my budget. I may just buy a class card at their 6-year anniversary discount since they never expire, that way I can ration them and still not pay full price.

I freaking love yoga.

Pretty PRINTS for my apartment!

Gold Prints Collage

I'm a little print-obsessed right now. The only artwork I've had on my walls previously was picture collages and paintings I made in high school. I'm ready for a look that's more grown-up and a bit more stylish, but still fun for my little … [Continue reading]
