Tuesday 6 - 7am Bikram Cambie - Ulrike

(tee heee hee) 

It is so dark in the morning but the sky is clear and it is now raining. There are hardly any cars on the road. There are a few runners running across the bridge. One of the Shoppers employees is waiting to be let into work. If you have to be up at this time of the morning it is kind of nice. Of course if you don't have to be it is really nice to sleep in.

Same deal with the left hip - I didn't do the left triangle. It is feeling a lot better though and I am sure I will be back to normal soon.

There was a really good lady in front of me. She was a little bit taller, thinner, and older. It was nice to work behind someone that was so focussed and good.

I was bendier today than yesterday. I like doing two days in a row. I am done now until Friday morning. I get to try taking the bus and skytrain home today as my truck is in the shop here at school overnight. Transit adventure.

Monday 6 - 7am Bikram Cambie - Sunshine

Whoa - I almost didn't get up. But then I got up and now I am happy I did. I haven't been to yoga since last Monday. Wednesday the boy woke up at 5am or something crazy and Friday I must have slept through the first couple of alarms because I got up and went to yoga but looked at the clock as I was driving across the bridge and realized that yoga had already started... so I went back home just in time for the boy to wake up. This morning when the alarm went off I guess I was just out of practice of getting up this early... and closed my eyes and contemplated not going... but it would only be harder the next time.. just do it.

At the front desk there was another lady (Linda?) who had to leave at 7am as well. Instead of sneaking out at savasana Sunshine let us know when it was exactly 7 which was after wind removing pose. That is a much nicer place to sneak out because you get that nice long savasana before that where you can catch your breath before starting the hectic day.

My left hip still hurts so I didn't do the left triangle. It wasn't that hot today... (which was nice). My mind was all over the place. I was having weird dreams when I woke up.... I was living in Jakarta again... so my thoughts started there and wandered all over even though I reminded myself to stop thinking and just focus on my breathing.

Friday 6:30 - 7:30 Thriller - Moe w/ Carrie!!

Carrie and I went to the Thriller class tonight and learned Moe's version. She teaches it every year. I went maybe... four years ago... and taught it in school for Halloween and it was a lot of fun. I am going to teach it to the kids on Thursday for a fun Halloween class. It will make a good video with them all in their costumes.

At the end of the class Moe put on a faster Thriller remix and we did the routine quicker. I am going to do that for the kids too - it was a nice twist at the end.

Friday 12 - 1:30 Contemporary Jazz - Julio

Julio taught "Busy" by Olly Murs. 

This was a fun, "cute" dance. He said cute about one hundred times.

It was a good dance for a grey day.

Oh ya - left hip and right lower rib bruises from the one ATF: lay on back - crunch - roll without touching limbs on the ground.

Monday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Ulrike

What a gloomy, foggy Halloweeny morning. Monday. I did it. My left hip still hurts so I didn't do the left triangle. I also missed a couple of other exercises because I was too hot and dizzy. She didn't turn the fans on at all today. It was super hot as soon as I walked in. What did I miss?? Let's see... left triangle because of my hip, one balancing stick, and I missed some spine strengthening. I was just too hot and pooped. I tried really hard in the heat. I did awesome in the balancing head to knee but then was dizzy for the bow.

Oh well, one down and two to go!

Friday 6 - 7am BYV Express Kits - Tierny

I had a good class this morning.
I woke up four minutes before my alarm.
My left hip still hurts. I didn't do the triangle to the left.
I balanced better in toe stand today.
I wish Carrie would come back to yoga and take this class with me every Friday. It would make sushi Friday's even better!

Thursday 6 - 7am Bikram Cambie - Michelle

My left hip is hurting again. I didn't do either of the triangles to the left. (Last night Jonny got me ice and I used the stuff on it)

Michelle let me out easily.

I hate leaving early.

I had a good toe stand on the bad ankle side.

The parking lot gate was broken and I had to drive around to another entrance and park somewhere different which made me almost late. It was hard to have to rearrange my thinking that early in the morning.

Wednesday 6 - 7am Bikram Cambie - Tierny

I feel so bad leaving early. Tierny came and found me and told me to let her know when I leave so she could lock the door. So, I disrupted the class one more time and let her know I was going. Oh well, I gotta do what I gotta do. I gotta yoges when my boys are sleeping... or hopefully sleeping. When I get home I gotta hang out with them. I guess I could try and go after he goes to sleep - but I prefer morning... I am too tired at night.

Anywho, my hip is feeling a lot better. I did one set of triangle to the left but not the second. It still hurts a bit and even though I wanted to come out of it on the left in the first set I held it. Then I told myself that the second set is shorter and to do it again but I remembered how much is sucks when it aches because I did too much. So, I rest the second set.

I had some trouble balancing today. I did not feel flexible either. I think that has a lot to do with how early I wake up. Jonny had to nudge me to realize the alarm was going off. I was so sleepy but I just kept on going. I always feel nice and awake after :-)

Friday 12 - 1:30 Contemporary Jazz - Julio

Navid was in class today.
I don't know what song it was but it had a lot of smashing sounds that kids in the class would pretend they were hitting something or smashing something.

I had fun - gotta go - baby

Thursday 6-7:30am Bikram Cambie - Michelle

This is what I looked like one year ago. I can't believe it. I am feeling so good and normal now. It was like I was never pregnant. YAY! And.. I love the prize I got at the end... and it is almost his birthday!! What a year.

Anywho, yoga was awesome today. Michelle is one of my magic teachers. I always have a good class when she is teaching. She makes me try hard and the class goes by really quick.

I was thinking about the grade 9/10 class and their next couple of dances I am going to make for them. I was thinking of doing a long across the floor exercise that everyone starts at different times, in different places, and in groups of different sizes. It would be easy to teach but difficult to organize. It would look cool though. Then I had to get my mind to focus back on the yoges. My mind is always wandering.

Tuesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

I asked Mari about the sign in and she said I didn't need to use my card. Ok. I won't. I didn't do the left triangle. My hip is still sore. I have my spare first block so I got to do the whole class. I had a good class.

Friday 6 - 7am BYV Express - Kits - Roxana

So, Roxana showed me the computer today and she has to check off another box when you show up even though you signed in online. So, it might be easier just to use your card. I just like signing in on the app because I like to plan and set goals. I think I will keep doing it and I will just let the person at the front desk click my name when I arrive. I think... whatever.

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I couldn't get back to sleep. I don't feel sleepy. I will probably feel sleepy early tonight though.

My left hip is still hurting so I didn't do the triangle to that side. I had a really awesome class. I was flexible even though it was early. I think it was because I was up earlier and I was more awake?

Anywho  - the bell went. Let's get this Friday DONE and home to my boys!!

Wednesday 6 - 7am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I like Roxana. When she greeted me this morning I let her know that I was going to sneak out at the savasana and she came out and made sure I was able to get out of the door and she locked it again behind me.

I had a good class. My left hip is still sore. I didn't do the left triangle. I let it rest.

The young girl who just had a baby was in front of me. I was imaging weird things today. I imagined she was a Chinese gangster's little wifey.?? What goes on in my brain? Focus! I also thought about creating a new relay warm-up. Thursday I am going to run an across the floor warm-up.
