I'm finally Zen-Communicado..

So I've been meaning to get this blog started for awhile. I keep thinking, the quicker I get in the habit of blogging, the easier it will be for me to stay with it in training... and considering, I signed for my loan yesterday, booked my flight last night, and wrote out my check to Bikram today... Now is the time to start blogging!

so of course I have to admit I'm a little nervous. It's easy to think- 9 weeks in Acapulco, sounds like a little vacation, right? eh... from what I've heard, not so much. the schedule goes a little something like this: m-f wake up around 7:30am, first yoga class is at 9am, then posture clinics, lunch, another yoga class, more posture clinics, more lectures, a little anatomy and phys classes, and sometimes more lectures that rumor has it can last up till 2am. apparently, Bikram enjoys listening to himself talk. (not that i'm judging, as do i) anyhow, that adds up to some long ass days. the nice thing is aside from one yoga class saturday morning, my weekends are basically my own. and hopefully, the plan is as long as I keep up with my dialog before I go, I shouldn't have to do too much studying through the night. bonus.

And Lately I really have been practicing my dialog like crazy. In the car, at work, at home, (even in the limmo) all I hear is : "Arms back, Look back, Fall back, Go back, Way back, More back!" ..("come up and stop in the middle... next is padahastasana, hands to feet pose"--- i could go on, trust me) But anyways, it really is consuming me and in a good way. I feel like I was so stressed and upset about moving back home, that I hadn't really been doing that much thinking about training. It's like it hadn't actually set in yet. Now, I feel so much more motivated, postive, and just plain excited. I am about to spend 9 weeks completely eating, sleeping, pracitcing and living yoga. How cool is that? I feel like it's still a dream. I can't believe that I am going to be a yoga instructor. I am so proud of myself that I am following my heart, and I am doing something that I truly believe I am meant to do.

Okay, enough of that, I am off to bed, work in the a.m. at DDC and then more yoga tomorrow!

this blog is rather scattered, and dashed, but it's here and it's a beginning. Namaste!
