It BURNS! It HURTS!
If you’re thinking this is out of a vampire movie ala True Blood [looooove the show], you’re so wrong.
That was me, in class.
It felt SUPER humid, or maybe it’s cause it was before the rain, and by Trikanasana I was dehydrating majorly. Ah, but to keep calm and breathe and concentrate on the dialogue took me TOO DAMN MUCH EFFORT that I let my mind slip away and started thinking about, among other things :
– How much foodstuff should I bring over?
– OH SHIT yoga mat! Bella and Edward kinda tore holes in mine, but I don’t care.
and the kicker :
– Can I laminate / bind my copy of the dialogue for free? 😀
Yes, I got my copy of the dialogue! WOO!!!!
Like I said, my mind wasn’t with me in class. I think it’s some form of coping mechanism that I’ve developed over the years – when the going gets tough, I start thinking of other things to distract myself [that’s why I’ve got so many imaginary friends…]. Naughty not-present-in-the-moment yogini. I guess it’s one of those days!
And because I was dehydrating so much so early on [I SWEAR the studio director is cranking up the humidity to prepare us for TT], I experienced my first ever body cramp. Thank the heavens it was in kapalbhati breathing, because I sure as hell wanted to kick my leg out turn the toes in and un-cramp it.
If I can cramp in my little home studio, oh God, I’d better be prepared physically for training. Electrolytes, here I come!
