Wednesday 12:25 - 1:50 Contemporary Jazz - Moses

OWWW!! My shinbows and shoulders!!
25 minutes late and patronizing lectures - why did I like this class? He reminds me of Barbara - same reasons. I like pain and pushing myself. I would like to take his class more... but it will have to wait until spring break and July because Wednesdays are a school day that I can't miss.

Anywho - I will be back for more torture you thirty year old with the body of an eighteen year old. hahaha!!

Tuesday 1:30 - 2:30 Hip Hop - Richie

Oh - that new teacher was in both classes today.

Shauna was in front of me. She kills it. I was getting into it. I like how many times we ran the choreo. He did random groups at the end and the new teacher danced in one. I felt dumb not dancing in one but I just lose it. I guess this has to be one of my goals - dance in a random group.

It was another awesome dance day - three in a row now. Thank-you best husband in the world!

Tuesday 12 - 1:30 Contemporary Jazz - Liz

I like Liz. I can't remember the when I took her class before but I am pretty sure I have. Maybe she was a sub for Moe before. Anywho, it was a great warm-up. (There were many similarities to Genieve's warm- up yesterday.) Unlike yesterday, this class was packed and full of all the cool kids.

We didn't do abs or across the floor because we did a long choreo. It was a drunken feel with lot's of momentum driven floor parts and spins.

I look forward to taking her class again one day :-)

Monday 1:30 - 2:30 Hip Hop - Stu

Woo - this was a good one. It wasn't sticking in my head. There were a couple of parts that my brain just blocked. He also made us dance facing partners and in a circle to help our brains and get out of the mirror. He had a lot of good teaching moments. I can't remember them all. He is very pro-marking. He talked about how some awesome dancers can take it all in just by watching choreo. (Shauna) he said try to get 16 counts - then try and add in another 8 next class. He was basicalky saying focus - which is what Jonny always tells me.

It was a good class - with two awesome little girls and there was one of our new teachers from Tweedsmuir there. I will have to look up her name cause she is going to be there tomorrow.

I have an awesome husband for letting me go!!

Monday 12 - 1:30 contemporary jazz - Genieve

I was one of four people in class. It was an all female group. Genieve taught a really long and stretchy warm-up. We did across the floor: turn, kick, jump. And, a short combo.

It was as if she knew I wanted to practice standing in different places - cause we did that at the end and we faced different directions. It was a short combo though so it was ok.

Sunday 3:45 - 4:45 Hip Hop - JP

I finally made it back to a JP class. I was getting it and having a good class until he pulled out the camera to film at the end. I messed up then and now it is recorded for life. (Please delete!) The class tired me out - it has been a while. I look forward to a dance filled week. (And a couple of yoges - but most importantly dance! I always can go to yoga at 6am when school starts)

Two things I have to learn:
1. Filming a dance shouldn't make you lose your memory.
2. Changing places or directions shouldn't make me forget the dance.

I saw Pam when I was leaving and happy new yearsed. (Yes, I just turned years into a verb)

Sunday 9:40 - 10:10 - Skate Vegas Lease Lot (30 mins)

Yesterday we walked around a lot trying to find a good, safe spot for us all to skate. We ended up skating just across the street from our condo at empty parking lot. We could get one of our condos with the balcony facing our skate spot. That would be cool. 

Anywho, I just did line one and some kick flip practice. The fart stones here are plenty - but I didn't get struck today. The boy enjoyed rolling back and forth on the side walk and along the drain area. 

Tomorrow will be a longer sesh. Always nice to have a cool swim right after the sesh.

Wednesday 6-7:15am Bikram Cambie - Mari

I had an ok class. It got really hot during the balancing series. I enjoyed Mari's class because I did get to hold the postures and she did enough breathing at the start that I felt warmed up. I can't believe I just said that. Usually, I like it quick - I guess that is a sign of improvement.

Monday 6 - 7:05am Bikram Cambie - Tierny

I had a good class and I got another foot massage! Score!

Sunday 9:13 - 9:52 & 2:30 - 3:17 Skate E Spot (1H 23mins)

We had two sessions today. We had sun at both of them. (There wasn't sun at the start of the second session but it peaked past a builind soon enough)

I did line one, pushed fakie and did fakie ollies, and worked on kick flips. My hip flexors are sore. They don't want to lift up my legs.

The boy had Boo during first session and didn't end up doing any skating. So, Boo is only for car and plane now. Second session - it took him a while to realize he wasn't going to get Boo - but after a lot of cranky pants he started skating and had some fun with us.

Saturday 9:09 - 10:07 Skate E Spot (58 mins)

Jonny surprised me with a freshie and new hardware. I had one short skate last week when Jonny forgot his board - hardly long enough to blog about - other than that it has been either too cold or rainy to skate. But, this weekend we had some nice warmer weather.

This was yesterday - let me see if I can remember what I did.

Ollies and 180's mostly and I skated with boy - we pushed to each wall. It is so cool he is pushing!!

I had a good class. Tierny doesn't make you hold everything as long. I got a foot massage!! YAY!!

Tuesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

I had an awful class. My yoga brain was trying to convince me to talk. Get everything out in the open. But, my normal brain is back. You can't change people or make them feel bad for who they are. I just gotta keep being me and ignore the criticism.

Friday 6 - 7:14am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I had a good class. My hip flexors are super tight from yesterday's Nike warm-up with the kids - too many V ups! I need to stretch them out.

I had fidgety girl diagonally in front of me today. She is so fidgety. She even grabs her shorts out of her camel toe. WOW - that was mean - but come on - just do the fucking class and quit fixing yourself in the mirror. She should remove herself from the front row and hide in a corner. The mirror is too much of a distraction to her.

Monday 6-7:10am Bikram Cambie - Tierny

I had a good class. The heat was neither hot nor cold. I didn't want to get up this morning but I'm glad I did. It is a nice way to start the day. (Then again sleeping in and family time is also nice -)
