I don’t have a review today. I just wanted to tell you what I have been up to and what I have in store in the months ahead.
First off, I joined a yoga studio in March. I have been visiting on a regular basis. The first class I attended was Stress Relief Yoga and it was magical. I slept so well that night. I try to go to this class every Sunday night to get ready for the week ahead.
I also have been going to Hot Vinyasa Flow classes regularly. I went because I wanted the intense heat after the brutal winter we had. I was chilled to the bone and was hoping this would help. It sure has. I’m not sure if I’ll keep attending this through the summer months or not but we’ll see. The yoga studio has other classes planned that I might be interested in this summer and since I pay per class, I will need to be discriminating on what classes I choose. The hot yoga classes are heated to 90 degrees. In my opinion this is the perfect temperature. A little lower than some of the other hot yoga classes. 90 degrees is just enough to be super heated, but not so intense that you feel smothered by the heat.
I joined this studio literally the weekend that it opened. That way I didn’t feel uncomfortable going into the studio for the first time. Everybody was a newbie even if they were already seasoned yogis. I really like it there.
Here is a pic of me participating in the Stress Relief Yoga class during the meditation portion (I’m sort of in the middle to the right a little hidden from view:
In May I am attending a Women in the Wilds outdoor event. This is a day planned for women to do outdoor recreation activities such as kayaking, canoeing, hiking, archery, gun safety, yoga, and the like. I signed up for yoga (surprise, surprise), kayaking and a woodburning craft. I’m excited. I love doing yoga in the outdoors.
In June, The yoga studio that I frequent is having a yoga marathon to celebrate the summer solstice.
This August I plan on attending the Finger Lakes Yoga Festival once again this year.
On a personal non-fitness level I am also going to see two legends in concert this summer. First up is Ringo Starr – a/k/a Richard Starkey. You may have heard of him before!
Second up I am going to see a childhood idol of mine the Queen of Rock n Roll herself: Ms. Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
I’m also attending the Finger Lakes Wine Festival in July for about the 9th year in a row.
I cannot wait to post about some of the above activities and hopefully I’ll have some new reviews for you soon.
