This is for the Philly folks.

go see enlighten up. playing at the ritz bourse for the week. maybe longer.

i went with karen and craig and kcdv and a few of her friends.

seeing this film made me really appreciate my practice. there were some really sweet clips of guruji from a few years ago. i loved seeing the parts when they were in india with guruji and hawaii with norman allen.

ok, that's all.

go see it.

Grand Turk Lighthouse.

Grand Turk Island Lighthouse. Again, this isn't my photo... My photos are on my mom's camera, which is in Baltimore. But I took a photo almost exactly like this, except the lighthouse looks more decrepit. This was the first day on land... It was gorgeous, obviously

vacation time.

i haven't been blogging. but it's ok. not much going on really.

working. yogaing. eating. sleeping. repeat.

yoga is really the only thing that keeps me going. i mean, somedays i just can't get out of bed but when i think about dropping back or working on headstand, i normally can get myself out of bed and onto the mat.

adam gave me a ride one day this weeeek (or was it two days?) i don't know, but wednesday when he gave me a ride... i was extremely grateful because i think i would've just kept on sleeping if i had to take the bus... anyway, wednesday was a very exciting day. i finally did a drop back on my own. it was very exciting!!! yay!! a whole new chapter!

i'm currently in baltimore. i'm going to the carribean on sunday with my dad on a 7day cruise. i plan on keeping little notes of fun things that happen and i will blog when i get back. i might blog again tomorrow about the hike i'm going on with my parents. we'll see if it's funny or not... if it's funny, expect a blog!!

i miss writing. ranting. complaining. joking. examining. so i think i'm back to blogging. cross yo' fingers.

the bang.

i mean, come on. this is how it ends?! all that hard work and more hard work. :) i secretly love and hate this pose. i feel like it combines a lot of aspects of the whole primary series... except forward bending.... maybe it's just giving you a taste of what's to come in second.. (not that i'm any where ready or near doing 2nd.. gotta drop back on my own first.) 

well, it's friday. have to work at 8 today so i couldn't make it to jill's led primary. maybe next week. i'm going on a cruise with my dad on may 10-17th. i'm doing yoga on the deck. no joke. i'm gonna be THAT lady. :)

ps: this pose is called setu bandhasana. bridge pose?! i think not. or spinal lift pose!? that's more like it.
