Breathe in...Breathe out...

This evening I attended my second yoga class with my friend Shannon. The class was taught by a man who was much more our pace, we thought, focusing on breathing and how you feel in a pose. I am proud to say that I made it almost all the way through stopping only for water and the occasional giggle fit. Toward the end of the class while in downward facing dog I felt my left heel actually touch the ground for a second. Score!

Tomorrow starts a new day and a new job. It's a very early day compared to what I'm used to, but I'll deal. Wish me luck!

I had a great idea on the 4th of July....I should take a yoga class! I invited my friend Shannon to go sometime and, to my surprise, she wanted to go yesterday. We both had to stop at times and just sit there for a minute before jumping back in. The room was hot (a normal practice for a lot of yoga studios. It's supposed to get rid of all the impurities), and the excercise was strenuous, but I think it was a good thing. Today I'm sore in places I didn't even know existed, but I'm no worse for wear. Shannon is also nursing a few sore spots, but feels that another trip would be a good thing. Wish us luck!

Foliage Bracelet

Just finished! Trying out a new style of toggle here. I really like the way it compliments the beadwork. This project took around 15 hours over a couple of months. I'm not sure I'll be able to give this one away!
