Yoga subs are great way to experience the new, different

I had been eyeing these cute socks at Namaste Yoga studio for sometime. I finally bought them the other day ... on sale!

Today my Vinyasa Flow class had a sub. The class was taught by Emily. I like her style. I have taken class from her before.

After class I told her I enjoyed her class and style. She told me the type of yoga it was, which I don’t remember now what it was called. I found it funny that I didn’t realize that it wasn’t actually a Vinyasa Flow class.

The type of yoga Emily teaches apparently isn’t really being taught in the East Bay. I hope she becomes a regular instructor at Namaste.

Regardless, the class was good, tough, sweaty, intriguing and I learned something about me and my practice. If most or all those factors come into a class it means it was a good practice for me.

When we were meditating at the end of class Emily read us something (many teachers do this):

The Dalai Lama was asked what surprised him most about humanity:


Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;

he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

This really makes you think, doesn’t it?
