What a crazy past couple of days! Thursday was our wedding anniversary (4 years) and I started to feel a bad cold coming on and my voice fading fast, Friday my dad arrived and my yoga weekend began, Saturday morning R left for Italy for over a week, Saturday I taught my first yoga class, and Sunday I had yoga training all day. Thank goodness for Grandpa Ron. He did a great job taking care of and keeping M entertained all weekend! I think he changed his first diapers in almost 32 years! He snapped this cute photo and sent it to me on Sunday. Notice how she has her hands in her “pockets” again.
Teaching my first yoga class was really interesting. I didn’t prepare as much as I had hoped to. I planned to cram right at the end, and then I got sick and lost my voice! I think being sick really gave me an excuse to stink, if I did, I could blame the sickness. Also, I told myself, I don’t really plan on teaching, so it doesn’t matter if I am any good this weekend. I think both those stories I told myself really kept me from being overly nervous or anxious. But as that room started to fill up (35 people I think!) I got more and more nervous. As my fellow teachers began our practice, my stomach turned more and more. And then it was my turn. I just got up there, and I just did it. I was comfortable, I was calm, and I really enjoyed it! I can’t wait to do it again.
