I know this Blog is supposed to be about my yoga certification, but not only do I have a lot to say, my Birthday was Wednesday and therefore a post was in order!
If anyone has ever taken yoga regularly at the same studio, you know there is something amazing about the yoga community. Even though you can practice in a room with 60 people sometimes, you get in your own zone. You are there for the breathing, for the release of not only the toxins from your body, but the bad energy that doesn't serve you well. After each class you feel alive, open, ready to take on anything. Naturally, with all those toxins released and endorphins flooding your body, you build friendships and bonds with people. You may only see them at your studio, but they are genuine, authentic friendships with no agenda. What I'm trying to say is that while upside down in our one minute handstand holds, the whole class sang, "Happy Birthday" to me. It was honestly one of the highlights of my day. I then went home to find a heartfelt Birthday card from my boyfriend, (which if anyone knows me, they know how much a card means to me). I was on a high. Groundworks gave me a free Birthday coffee...life was good. I went to work...my cell phone died and had to visit 3 different Verizon Stores, but a couple hours later came out victorious with a new cell phone...I know what you are thinking, "How did I check my facebook birthday wishes while my cell phone was dead?" I didn't, it was definitely a low point of my day. I then spent the evening with my best friend and went to my favorite restaurant, Jiraffe with my loving boyfriend. Ended the night with ice cream and red wine. I couldn't imagine a better Birthday.
