Holiday Aftermath

Yesterday I had myself a bit of a rant. Yup, I’m not a fan of Christmas and I wasted an entire blog post bitching about what I didn’t like about it. Today I’m better, so that post is gone. I’m still not a huge fan of Christmas (no Dickensian revelations for me), but why the hell should I harsh everyone …

Yoga Days 9 & 10: Rant, Double-Down and the Dizzy

justin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

First off I’d like to apologize to the folks who are probably getting tired of my yoga ramblings and are yearning for one of my typical idiotic postings talking about food or pop culture or some other drivel. Don’t worry, I’ve got a stack of material I need to address over the next several postings, so the idiocy will return! …

Yoga Day 5: Defying Earth

Taking the various classes offered by Sunstone Yogahas been eye-opening. I can definitely see the differences between the classes and the intended foci that each class were geared towards.

Reporter 1: “What happened today?” Me: “My head wasn’t in it and that’s got to be one of the most important things to bring to the game. I started out …

Yoga Day 2: I can haz wood

After surviving pretty much 24 hours after yoga, I thought I’d celebrate with another class. I thought I’d do a nice “Fire” class to follow up with my “Fire” intro, but, in my yogic euphoria I misread the schedule and ended up at a “Wood” class. “No problem,” I told myself, “Core strengthening and stamina are things you should probably …

Yoga Day 1

The last time I took a yoga class, Bill Clinton was just starting his Presidency and I had no concept of what working out in a “hot room” was about. Today, I returned to yoga and lived to tell about it. Because I have managed to fill my active time with other activities for the past couple of years, I …
