Burning thighs … er … sore hips


My work schedule has been a little weird this week.

I worked from home yesterday. And today we were allowed to leave work a little early after being treated to an amazing seafood lunch. (See lobster photo to the left.)

Yesterday morning I took a yoga class from the yoga studio, Namaste Yoga Studio in my neighborhood, where I regularly go about 3-4 times a week.

I took Naushon’s Power Vinyasa, which I have taken a few other times. But it is not a regular class for me, as her times don’t normally fit in my schedule. Talk about a sweaty class. I am talking … dripping sweat.

Between a full meal, an intense workout and the one beer I was ready for a nap. And so that is what I did.


Yesterday we had Emily sub for Ashley’s Vinyasa Flow class. Emily told me the type of yoga she taught us. But I couldn’t remember the name. I found out she teaches Jivamukti Flow, which is a Vinyasa style practice, according to About.com. And that makes total sense since I thought it was taking a Vinyasa Flow.
