One intensive down, one to go

Hello, semi long lost blog!  It's been an absolute insane couple of weeks, with another crazy one to start on Thursday.

The day after I wrote my last entry announcing my departure from "survival job" land and into full time yoga-dom, I hopped a plane to Massachusetts for the next 5 days to attend the beautiful, beautiful wedding of my boyfriend's older brother to his long time love.

The happy couple!

After that, I took a couple of days to nurse my out of control allergies (going back and forth from the trees of New England to the mold of New York was intense!) and then jumped headfirst into Thai Yoga Massage Intensive, Level I.  This was the same course I took back in May, only this time I was attending as my teacher's assistant.  Jyothi, my teacher, is an absolute delight of a person and a phenomenal teacher.  The class was full of really special people and I just can't say enough good things about those five days.  I'm so blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of it, and I am HOOKED on assisting! I learned just as much taking the course again as I did the first time.

So now I'm getting some life-stuff in order that has been put on the back burner in the midst of all this travelling and massaging (and being massaged!) and giving some love to my oft-neglected blog.

Starting Thursday, however, I'm diving back into the sea of intensive yoga training - this time for Karma Kids!  My excitement is growing every day to start in on this next part of my yogic journey, and I'm sure I'll have much to report!

In the meantime, I leave you with some pictures of the past week, courtesy of Kevin, Tama, and Dave, some of the wonderful souls in class with me.  Enjoy!

Jyothi shows the class how to do Hurricane Kick.  Note our awesome toe socks, one of the most fun things about the Intensive :)

Have a beautiful last couple days of September...can't wait to welcome October!

Resurrection of a blog (and a hip)

One year ago today - on a much cloudier, much colder, and quite frankly very hungover morning - I went out to run.  My goal was either 4 mil...
