angry yogi - part deux

Holy bad yoga class, batman! Seriously. It was bad. I came into class not well hydrated, it was hot as hades and there were about 15 new people and one was super disruptive. I was on the hot side of the room and I was having thoughts like, "Who do I have to blow to get the ceiling fans turned on???" It was not one of my prouder moments. It's kinda funny to look back on though :)
What did I learn from tonight? Well, it's always good to bring an emergency snack to yoga in case you're feeling like crap on the way home. I like the Honey Stinger Pomegranate chews. I also realized that this practice has it's ups and downs. It is a physical practice but it's also a mental one. I like to think that I left something negative on my mat that won't have to be with me in the rest of my life.
Hopefully you were able to be a little more zen in your practice today :)

Yikes- a disruptive newbie is the worst! Oh well - good thing each class is different and we get to start fresh everyday. Namaste!

Who do you have to blow to get the fans turned on. That was pretty funny. After 3 years of a very steady practice one of things I'm working on is how not to be disrupted. There are the new folks. There are the old folks who always fidget. There are the folks who have been around for years and fall out of the the same postures at the same time, in the same way, very class.

So much that can be distracting.

I try to focus on the breath, and bring my attention back to the mat. It's a continual endeavor.
