I have been totally slacking off on the blogging. In my defense, there has been a lot going on this summer, and the fact that it is consistently over 105 degrees here tires you out pretty easily if you spend any time outside. On top of that, I have been doing a few weekend workshops, preparing the house for our two exchange students ( one of which is already here), subbing classes, and taking on a new seniors class and a few more private students. My Monday night class at my yoga room is also growing. There were seven yogis there last night. The room only holds about nine comfortably. If that class continues to grow, I will add a Wed. night class at the yoga room after my commitment to sub the Wed. 4:30pm – 5:30pm Hour Power class at DC Village concludes at the end of September. After a positive review on my class at the Elevation Institute a few Sundays ago, I am now going to begin teaching a few classes at the institute during the week. It will be the first time ever that I have taught classes in the downtown Phoenix area. I am thinking that a Tuesday- Thursday noon class may work well with my schedule and may be in demand for those who work downtown and want to catch a yoga class during lunchtime. There are showers at the Institute so those who need to shower can do so before returning to work. Will start that In Sept. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas about good times for classes in the downtown area, email me. My Lifetime Fitness classes on Mon., Wed., and Fri., are really growing. I consistently have over 30 people in a room that only holds 26. It is a tight and sweaty, but everyone just keeps showing up for the yoga. Some days the practices are more difficult than others. You never know what you are going to get in yoga. If you have no expectation of a yoga class then you will not be disappointed. I am working to have them move the class into a larger room if they can free one up.
My Saturday afternoon power yoga class at Gainey Village has been growing as well. It now has 11-15 people in it where it used to have only 3-6 people. It is funny class. It is 90 min. and frequently by the end of class there are only 4 or 5 left in the class. As the class progresses and typically gets harder, people start rolling up their mats and leaving. Some only plan on practicing for an hour or so, others just get tired and bail on the class. “It is what it is,” and I explain at the beginning of the class that it is a challenging class. That is why the regulars come back because they know that they will be challenged. I have been meaning to write a review on the Lululemon mat that I have been using for the past seven months. That will be my next blog in the not to distant future.
Namaste for now……..
