Tuesday 6 - 7am OHHY - Marcus

My right knee bursa is sore. It feels like electric juice is flowing around in there and if you touch it, it sparks. I didn't sleep well last night because of it.

I don't remember ever having Marcus as a teacher before but I may have.

I did a grabbed my ankles and put my hips up instead of doing camel.

There were five or six people in class today and it was a bit warmer.

Good class. I like the closeness. I need to have my clothes ready in the bathroom so I don't have to bother Jonny as much in the morning.

Monday 6 - 7am One Hour Hot Yoga - Christine

Dan lent was at the front desk and lent me his coffee thermos for water. (I forgot my water bottle - new routine.)
There were three students in the class including me.
Christine is a teacher from BYV.
The heat was not too hot - but that didn't bother me.
I like the proximity to my home.
I like seeing Jonny in the morning and showering in my own shower.
I like the morning walk in my city instead of getting in the car.
I like being able to get a whole class in - because I usually leave early and miss the last few exercises.
I like the price.

I feel guilty and disloyal leaving BYV.
I prefer doing everything twice and worry that I might not make any improvements with this shorter format.

Everything up until spine strengthening was done once
Spine strengthening twice
then it was some things once and some things twice - I don't remember.

Saturday 1-2:30 Ballet - Nicola

Good class. Lot's of people. Lower right back hurts. No balance today but great turns. Class went by really fast. Nice sunny day.

Friday 5 - 5:30 Skate E Spot

Yay - felt good to be out for a skate with my boys. The sun was out and the weather was crisp like fall. Ollies, 180's and kick flips.

The biy and I went to Coopers after to play and I got some nose bonks in as well.

Wednesday 6 - 7:10am Bikram Cambie - Mari

It was hot today!! I was glad I got to leave early to go to school. It is hard to get used to the heat after not having it for so long. 

My lower back was sore too - so I took it easy a lot. It was definitely not my best yoga practice day - but I got up and did it. I am proud of my early rising abilities. 

Tomorrow is my last day there for a while. I will be happy to be leaving on a Roxana tip :-) 

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

What an awesome class. We were in studio 3. I like that studio because you can see outside to Granville street and it is on its own level. I didn't want to stand at the front but I ended up there. It was a smallish class but not too small... maybe 11 or 12 dancers. I enjoy Navid's teaching style - he repeats a lot and cleans as he goes. He makes you pay attention to details.

This choreo was really sweaty. I am sure I left a pool of sweat. I got it - which made me happy - standing in the front makes you have to get it.

Navid had more dance to teach than time and asked if we wanted to stay and we all were happy to finish it.

This dance was a catch your breath cardio workout. I was a hurting old lady when I got home and the next day!

Tuesday 6-7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

Lisa asked me about school start up after class this morning. That was nice but made me feel guilty for not continuing my membership. It isn't personal it is a financial decision l and I know I will be back. That is my studio.

My lower back was super tight and sore. I had a good class still. It wasn't very hot and those steamers were gone. ?

Monday 6 - 7:30 Bikram Cambie - Tierny

Last four days at Bikram Cambie. I have an old pass at Commercial for a few classes - not sure what the Groupon was - but I haven't used it yet - so will use those up. I want to take Mackie's class. Then I will start my new Groupon for the one hour hot by my house and see how that goes.

It wasn't very hot. Tierny didn't make us hold things very long. It wasn't a hard class.

Injuries: right lower leg is still numb - that is a week now. Right lower back is crunchy (from carrying the boy??) Right knee bursa is still sensi.

Nothing is stopping me from doing anything - just keeping an eye on these little injuries and hoping they don't get worse or cause other ones.

Thursday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

Still not very hot - but I'm not complaining. Fake blonde walking out and others were complaining and wearing long sleeves and pants! I was sweaty!

Still numb in the right lower leg. It is kinda tingling now (it is bed time).

Washing machine stopped working with all my yoga clothes in it. I guess I'm sleeping in tomorrow.

Wednesday 6 - 7:15 Bikram Cambie - Mari

The heat still isn't working properly - not that I mind. I'm still sweaty.
Lower, right leg numbness. Feels weird when I grab my ankle for standing bow. There is not discoloration or swelling and it doesn't hurt - so I'm not that worried.

Definitely tired in class today. I was in the front right corner pocket - all alone - drifting off into my mind and not trying super hard all of the time.

Tuesday 6 - 7:10 Bikram Cambie - Onkar

I like the watermelon tank top Onkar!

Onkar did some cool teaching today. He made a bench under the black haired girls butt in awkward to demonstrate how much lower to go and he also put the lid of his water bottle on her hips to demonstrate how to keep them straight and even.

I also got an amazing foot foot massage.

I hated leaving early for school but glad I made time to go. I was debating going tomorrow to go to school early to work again - but this is my time. I need a little.

Friday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

forgot to write. Questioning the point of keeping this blog going - too busy. But - hard to give up.

Thursday 6 - 7:30 Bikram Cambie - Roxana

Forgot to write.

Wednesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Tierny

Yesterday Onkar did not show up yesterday so I got to school really early. Tierny was here today though. The heat was not too hot. The two classes after mine were cancelled for maintenance which I'm assuming means the heater - so tomorrow might he toasty.

My mind was on school the whole class - what a week. Is it always like this? I can't wait to get it under control.

Anywho - good class. Tierney needs a sound, like a clap or a word, like change so that people no when to change position. I think I'ge said that before. She leads a very calm class and does not wear the headset.

Anywho - done done done! I hope I can go tomorrow - let's see how much work I get done today.

Saturday 12 - 1:30 Ballet - Eva

I love Eva - she is so funny and she is always happy. I can feel her love of dance.

The tall girl who dances in her socks and stands at the barre with me - she has an accent - asked me where I had been and we had a little chat about how cold the Pacific ocean is. I like her - I will have to ask her where she is from. I am happy I have a regular class - I hope I can keep going.

There were some beautiful dancers in class today - man - I wish I was young again and could start dancing now - there are so many more resources. I think I would have gotten it sooner if I was looking at Instagram instead of an old book from the 70's.

Saturday 10:28 - 11:25 Skate E Spot

- listening to new music for school next year.
- not doing a lot of good skating - must try harder.

Friday 10:35 - 11:10 Skate E Spot

We had a quick skate today before dance. I didn't get much accomplished but I got to play with the boy. He was having such a good skate that he didn't want to leave.

Friday 12 - 1:30 Contemporary - Julio

I had a great first class back. I worked my butt off, sweat a ton, and danced till I lost my breath and collapsed.

Julio did his usual warm-up which I love. We skipped atf and spent the whole rest of the class learning choreo.

I had to wear the right knee pad but it helped me so I didn't have to hold back. I really felt like Inwas getting this combo - but it is an exhausting one.

Friday 6-7:30am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

My yoga outfit smelled like sweaty ballet slippers because it was the outfit I had in my dance bag on the trip. NTS: don't keep dance clothes in the same bag as smelly stuff if you don't want to smell.

The heat was not very hot today and the the fake blonde girl at the front who hates that walked out before standing series. I think Roxana took it personal - it isn't her fault the heat isn't working well and there are many other elements of the series you can focus on better without heat. But - I am just making stories in my head - she may have some issue that I am not aware if that requires super heat?

I had a good class. I'm loving getting back into home routine.

Thursday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

It was good to be back this morning. I didn't want to get up. I read my book way past my bed time. Luckily I got a spot by the door and a pregnant lady so I got some fresh air from the open door a lot. (The old truck guy who always goes out and in a lot was also near me.)

First day back done. I'll be back tomorrow!

Wednesday 1:50 - 2:40 Skate E Spot

We are home! It was a rough start with the boy. He wasn't intolettingme skate but he turned himself around and our second half of our skate was good. Jonny got a good workout today.

Tuesday 7:15 - 7:50 Skate Kelso Park

It didn't rain! We got one last skate at our little park. The boy didn't go down the hills on his knee like he did before. He did do some holding on and standing - it was a nice morning. Then, we drove home.
