If you are in town today and feeling the need for some R&R, please come join us at Capitol Hill Yoga (scroll down the page, past the Itsy Bitsy workshops, for SS info) today for this month’s Serenity Saturday.
It has been a long work week, and yesterday I though that I’d like to be taking a two hour afternoon restorative workshop myself this weekend. Last night I gave my self serenity Friday night (not so alliterative).
I’d been feeling a bit testy, and my thoughts were starting to be somewhat all over the place. I stepped back and thought about all that I’d put into my consciousness in the past couple of weeks: how many work telephone conferences and meetings in which I’d participated, how much the email and other computer communications, how many errands, movies I’d seen, parties I’d gone to, etc.
Diagnosis: overstimulated. So instead of going out and getting more stimulated (which can be the immediate reaction to feeling like one wants to get away from work and errand thoughts), I stayed home, cleaned the house, and did a long combination restorative, recumbent, and forward bending practice. This morning I woke up refreshed and newly receptive, ready to teach all day and share the yoga.
