I Didn’t Expire

If you read my post from the day before about habits in the Hot Room – and my insistence on setting my mat in pretty much the same area class after class after class… know that tonight I placed my mat on the total OPPOSITE side of the room (still 2nd row, I don’t wear my glasses to practice and if I’m any farther back, forget about seeing myself with any fuzzy clarity – I’d just be a black clad blob). Guess what?  I DID NOT EXPIRE.  I thought I might – but I didn’t – go freakin’ figure.

I was a little nervous about it – but once I started my first breathing exercise, I promptly forgot I was concerned about being elsewhere.  It all went well – thanks to everyone who encouraged me to make a switch.

On a blah note, I had to leave the room because I didn’t eat enough prior, took a vitamin on an empty stomach and wanted to expel my innards during locust pose.  I came back just in time for camel (whoopie) and did finish up.  Now to practice not beating myself up about it.  Waiting…waiting…waiting… ok – I’m good.

Nighty-night ~

    I’m still wondering why you do this thing voluntarily…. I mean there’s the heat and the vomiting and the stress of where to set up your mat. It’s an OCD nightmare. Is the instructor cute by any chance?

    Do you always use the same stall in the bathroom, by any chance?

    Vitamins on an empty stomach whilst in a hot room could make for a very satisfying blog post.

    Funny how we are habituated in strange comfort. Yoga is especially where creating the territorial space seems to be so important. Glad you made the change… liberating after the fact!

    Wouldn’t everything look so much more pleasant as fuzzy blobs?

    I’m glad you didn’t expire, but next time you might want to consider the innard expelling. It makes for a better blog post, right?

    I hate changing spots in the torture chamber. Glad you tried it though. Oh, and tell your stomach to wait for camel pose before causing a riot!

    Glad you tried it, Denise!

    “expel my innards during locust pose.”—Yes, because who doesn’t hate when that happens?…

    In life, there are no bonus points for vomiting. – my tattoo
