I’m glad to report that my return to a group ashtanga practice has been pretty smooth. I was worried I would feel really rusty, but the Tuesday evening class is balmy with lots of ashtangis gathered side by side. And holy kurmasana [pic, but not of me]! I was sweaty enough to slide right into this and be nearly flat to the ground. I did not know I had that flexibility.
This past week, I also celebrated another birthday. The absolute best part about my birthday is that I take a work day off and go to a yoga class in the middle of a week day – something I rarely get to do. I looked through schedules across a few studios and found a noon class by one of my favorite teachers, Angie. It’s been a good week of yoga.
