Yoga teacher training wk 8

28march14 - 30march14

So this weekend overlapped with chemo, so needless to say it was an interesting experience. I knew I wouldn't be able to make the whole thing, cause I didn't want to completely kill myself, but I was curious if the plan would actually work. 

I had the lovely Rae Ann pick me up at the hospital when I was done on Friday, and fortunately we had enough time to enjoy some tea and her couch before we went to training.  We also stopped for some really good soup in Woburn or Wakefeild... Not sure but it was good. 

Friday we practice taught and thank god
The universe didn't decide I should teach or assist. And we only did one person. So pweh! I had to through. I'm amazed how much better everyone is getting.  And the lovely Angela dropped me home. 

Saturday Angela picked me up and I felt pretty good. I slept for like 10hrs so that helped a bit.   I ended up only staying for the first bit, which was prenatal yoga. It was really fun and interesting and interesting that moms can do most of the poses, and a lot of the poses that moms can't do were sort of obvious. I mean doing cresecent twist with a belly, um I think not. Emily drove me home after that and I spent the rest of the day on the couch. With a quick visit by Mandy in the form of dinner... Cue Beethovens 9th.  !!! That was a huge help. 

Sunday I ended up driving myself because usually we have the same instructor for the whole day. So I knew if I wanted to leave early it would be impossible to get a ride home. I sort of can't believe I made it through the whole thing but I did. And the topic for most of it was Advanced poses. We did that for a round 3 hrs. So I practiced crow, tripod, tripod headstand, titivasana (that didn't happen ) balasana (figure 4 balance) and forearm stand. I'm decidedly better at being upside down than balancing. But hey it was really fun to play. I want to work toward scorpion because you look bad ass. 

Anyway, let's just say I pushed too hard so after I crawled home.... Assumed the couch position and was very thankful that I took Monday off. 

I think only missing 7 hrs the same weekend as chemo makes me an extra bad ass
