Yoga Basics, Wednesday @ 5:15pm

12 Peeps.
Arrived relaxed and excited to see what we would do. It had been a hot day and everybody seemed pooped. I thought we would focus on twisting, but Alana also came and she just had 7 ribs put back in and twisting would be the worst thing in the world for her. Also one of the ladies from my Help of Ojai Class came so I did not want it to be too hard.

This ended up being one of my best ever classes. Something clicked tonight that rarely does. I felt completely and totally relaxed. The group seemed involved but individually present. We did very little. I shared easily and opening about the practice of relaxing and unraveling the inner stress bunny. We laughed. We cried. Sometimes the magic just happens.
