Today I did something pretty out of the ordinary. I went to two–count ’em–two yoga classes in one day! I did my normal yoga class in the morning and then tacked on a yin yoga class afterward. I thought it might help with some knee pain I’ve been having. I’m heavy on power yoga/any yoga that is more physically demanding, so it was nice to try something a little slower. I don’t think it helped my knee pain, but there’s an ice pack in the freezer with my name on it that has been helping ease the discomfort.
I started doing yoga about two and a half years ago and absolutely fell in love. Seriously, I pretty much plan my entire week around when I can make it to yoga and, if I have to miss a class, I do my best to find a way to sneak in another class. I’ve toyed with the idea of doing yoga teacher training, but a few things have held me back:
- Working full-time
- I like to keep my weekends to myself (not that I do super fabulous or interesting things, but I just like my time to be my own)
- Most importantly, the very real fear that doing yoga teacher training would make yoga seem like a chore instead of a hobby
Moving to Chicago might provide the perfect opportunity to give it a go. We’ll see. I’d honestly appreciate any insights from other yogis out there who have done yoga teacher training.
And, to close things out–here’s an outtake of Burrito photobombing one of my yoga pictures. Happy Sunday!
Goodbye for Meow.
