Sunday Salon: Missing Yoga

The Sunday Salon.com Welcome to the Sunday Salon!

Enlightenment for Idiots
I miss my yoga classes.

I thought I'd stop yoga for a while to concentrate on tai chi, but I'm not learning a lot from the class as our teacher goes way too fast for me. As far as I can see, tai chi is supposed to be sloooow. So, I started doing some yoga exercises on my own this morning and it's helping my aches and pains from all the heat and humidity the past few weeks!

 I started a mystery novel, was not in the mood for a mystery, and started reading The Song Remains the Same, a novel about a woman who wakes up in the hospital with severe amnesia after a horrific plane crash. She doesn't recognize her husband, her mother, or her sister, and it seems she has become another person - a more outgoing and less stuffy and conservative person she hears she used to be. Am eager to see how the plot unfolds.

Last week, I did a review of a book of poems for a tour for
Listening to Africa: Poems by Diane M. Raab and also reviewed an historical novel, 
The White Pearl by Kate Furnivall.
Next week is a book tour for

Charlie : A Love Story
by Barbara Lampert

In between I'm writing poetry! and plan to work on my family tree, improve my tai chi, and get through the heat wave that's coming up next week.  What are your plans?

The Song Remains the Same sounds exciting! I hope it's a fantastic read.

I wish that I lived closer to a metro area where I could get a good yoga class. I've done it a few times at home and was wore out but in a good way!!!

Yoga was good for my body, but I could never tune out the world around me. I would instead focus on noises in the room and lose my focus.

I love Yoga, and go once a week, but starting this week, I am going to be going twice a week. It's so good for my body and my injuries that I can't go without it for long. I encourage you to go back to it. There is no other exercise that leaves me feeling so good!

I do a yoga tape at home. I'm to cheap to joina local gym, at least right now, but I would love to go to actual classes.
