Day 106 – The Jury’s Still Out…

I’ve decided that “The Jury’s Still Out” when it comes to Shagane.  She taught a pretty amazing class today.  In fact, when I walked out of the class, some middle aged man behind me goes, “Thank you so much for that class, that was the best yoga class I have ever taken.”  Instead of saying, “Thank you.” Shagane went into why he didn’t listen to her and got out of postures early and then I just said thank you and left.

I understand not saying, “Thank you” could be a cultural thing – or it could just be something that hasn’t been taught or learned – heck, I still have to remind my parents to accept a compliment and say thank you for it rather than negating it.

Nonetheless, the point was that it was a wonderful class and she totally deserved the compliment.

I arrived at the studio about 4:10 – class starts at 4:30pm and ended up falling asleep before class.  That always freaks me out because I don’t know if I mumbled anything or what.

Today’s posture is Garurasana or Eagle Pose.  Not one of my more rockin’ poses.  Oh Eagle, why cannot I wrap my foot around my calf?  Why must you hold me back?  I thought by the end of this year that I would have knocked this out.  I am not sure it’s one of the fat probems either (in other words, I cannot do it because I am fat) because I have seen people who are larger than me get ‘er done.  Maybe there’s still hope for it.  We’ll see.

I am going to do my best to drag myself out of bed in the morning for 6:30am yoga.  Wish me luck.

Namaste.
