Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana - Part 2

Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana - Part 2 on 8/10/10

This morning was one of those very full 6:20 am classes. I’m not a fan.

So there wasn’t really a spot in the front of the room – guess I’ll have to get there at 6am to grab those.

So I chose the second layer back behind a guy I’ve seen in my last three classes. He comes with his grandfather or someone of that age compared to him. This guy is always in the front row so I never pay much attention because I’m usually parallel with him.

Omg (love that acronym btw), he was so jerky in his postures. Every single one. There was no flow and he always got out of postures early. In fact, I’d say he never really got in them. I think doing this every few postures is acceptable and understandable IF you’re off that day, had too much to drink the night before or aren’t feeling well. But beyond that I find it rude and inconsiderate to your fellow classmates. It interrupts the synchronicity of the room – not to mention drives me crazy!

So needless to say class wasn’t all that relaxing. And for some reason I’m really tired even though I got 7.5 hours of sleep.

Maria was gone today so Julia subbed for her I like Julie because she plays music during the class and part of that music is usually some sort of windpipe that ends up reminding me of New Mexico which is always a welcomed memory as I love it so there.

Today’s Bikram Yoga posture is the final part of the wind removal series – Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana – when I was doing it today I was thinking about how I had told you guys that my goal was to get my neck flat on the ground and how I can’t wait to tell you when I do.

I was watching a recorded version of Oprah yesterday, but I think it was the one that aired yesterday about Ali MacGraw – and when she walked on the stage, her outfit reminded me immediately of New Mexico and then of course, she mentioned that she lives in the mountains beyond Santa Fe – which just made me melt.  Man, waking up to the New Mexico sun every morning and doing yoga – there’s a treat.  Oh, yeah, that’s what she said that she does Yoga every morning and if she doesn’t then by 10am, she is reminded that she hasn’t.  I can totally relate to that.  She told Oprah that it balances her for the rest of the day.  Loved that!
