Yoga! I shadowed Debbie at work today. Since her “work” involves poses, Durga breaths, closing your eyes, and stretching; it was far more relaxing than if she had shadowed me. 27 other students sat on mats beside me. I cherished this “day off” and took my first yoga class in 4.5 years. I didn’t realize how much I missed it. I hope I don’t wait as long to take my next class.

Debbie is a Kripalu Certified Yoga Teacher. It is hard to believe that I have spent  more than 10 years living with a yoga instructor, yet I have done so little yoga myself. That should change, especially now that I’m feeling the aches and pains of a long racing season, and a long athletic career. I am fascinated by yoga and read about it all of the time. We get Yoga Journal, the Kripalu catalogs, and the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association newsletters. We talk about yoga all of the time. I’m amazed at how much the business of yoga has grown. I wish that I had jumped on the bandwagon with Debbie before there was a bandwagon and such mainstream acceptance. Kripalu itself has grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise. Flip through Yoga Journal and look at the advertising.

The market is saturated, yet it seems to keep growing. I should worry less about the finances of the yoga industry since I crunch numbers all day long. I should simply go take another yoga class and lose myself in my breathing.

Bolton Center School 4th Grade State Fair. #northdakota Late night #carfreecommute via the #hopriverstateparktrail #railtrail #bicycle Fantastic and "educational" @hookerbeer tour with @ypoglobal friends. #hookerbeer #beer #ypo #manufacturing #craftbeer #madeinhartford #madeinconnecticut 🍺🇺🇸 Start of this morning's 33rd annual #soapstonemountaintrailrace. @trailrunningmom warned the 225 runners that there are rocks and roots on the course. She then offered the patented #shenipsitstriders start line money back guarantee. #trailrunning 🏃🏻⛰ #carfreecommute #burnsideavenue @horsteng #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #biketowork #biketoworkday #bicycle Broke out the #bridgestonemb1 and the #trailabike for a post-dinner Monday night #railtrail spin with the family. It's nice to have daylight at 8:00 P.M. #hopriverstateparktrail Little D at the #mothersdaydash 5K in Rockville. #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #running @trailrunningmom doing her #trailrunning thing. He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
