I have not been practicing yoga much these past few weeks, since my yoga teacher (you know who you are!) moved to NC . I drove the road to North Berwick to get to yoga, about a half hour away, over and over and over, and was happy to do it.
I wasn’t familiar with that area at all when I first started going, but I got to know it well enough. It was a nice ride. I got to meet some wonderful women that I might not have met otherwise. I went to shops that I liked on the way home sometimes. It also gave me the opportunity to listen to my audiobook of the moment, which was a nice bonus. (Oh, did I mention I passed a Dunkin Donuts on my way…? I always invite coffee to my yoga practice :).)
Change is hard.
Anyway, I decided to try a new yoga class, and (since I was out of my comfort zone already) a new yoga (to me) entirely: Holy Yoga. My class is in Sanford, and is taught by Susan Hampton (find her website here: soulfulstretch.com).
I was the first to arrive (hello? I am a first-born) and as I was waiting, I started reading the notices on the bulletin board.
It’s important to note here that I am always looking for clues to know that I am in the right place and doing the right thing.
This is what I saw on the board:
- Llamas. I LOVE llamas. My husband and I have a collection of about a million (conservative estimate) of them, all different sizes, shapes, colors with one noteable exception: living. None of them are living.
- Another posting said something about Brave Girls and my one word this year is BRAVE!
- There was a posting about a Drumming Circle and not too long ago someone suggested that I try drumming.
Do you think those are enough clues?? Plus, Susan is a fabulous teacher: welcoming, funny, and caring. All of the other women were lovely. It was a pleasure to be in this class.
