The strange thing about Saturday (Day 15) was that I got up and was ready to go to class in plenty of time, but for some reason I was still late. Well the reason is that I always forget how janky the trains are on the weekend. I hate getting to class late, but it happens. Luckily Saturday's class was an hour and a half. Most of the classes at Area are an hour and ten minutes.
Saturday's class was a Basics class and Angela was teaching. She took her time in class and allowed me to really think about the postures a little more. I'm really into foundation work right now and I've really been thinking about and working on my chaturanga. I think I might have been doing it a bit wrong for a while because when I try to do it correctly I can really feel my shoulder and not in the best way. I'm not beating myself up, but it is something to focus on going forward. I know I need to strengthen my left shoulder. I know it's not 100%, but I will get there or do the best I can trying. All in all it was a great class. I'm glad I made it even thought I was a little tardy to the party.
Today (Day 14), I did as I will be doing at Kripalu, which is take the day off. I will only have 4 Sunday's off the whole time I'm there. I didn't just laze about today though. Once a month I volunteer at a alternative healing center for women with breast cancer or survivors called You Can Thrive! It's an amazing place and I get to do Reiki on the women who come and help them in their healing process. These women are so inspirational. I feel blessed to be a part of that healers community.
Besides that my day was pretty regular. Cleaned house a bit, biked to see my cousin for a while, came home, made dinner and then had rehearsal for my shows this week. It was a great day.
I received a few donations over the weekend and I am so thankful. We are almost there folks! Just about $300 to go to make tuition! It's really amazing how generous everyone has been. I am so humbled and thankful. There is still time to donate so please help out in any way you can. Either by donating or spreading the word. Thank you so much!
