After feeling pretty tired for ages, I feel like I’m finally making progress. Fortunately, it seems the recent change in my thyroid meds are making a difference. Despite making progress on the thyroid front, I was starting to feel ill on Thursday with sore throat and swollen glands. Thankfully, an early bed time and some extra sleep made all the difference. Happily, my throat was a bit sore yesterday, but I feel 100% better today.
And thank goodness for that because I had chair yoga training at Open Heart Yoga Studio. After seeing nobody for months, I was looking forward to seeing people outside my immediate family. There were only three of us in studio with the others on Zoom. I love that technology provides an opportunity for people to take trainings or continue their studio practice at home.
Today’s training was five hours and it was five hours well spent. I love how chair yoga makes yoga accessible to everyone. Further, I realized that while I was injured and in a boot, chair yoga would have been perfectly suited to my physical challenges. Honestly, I learned so much great stuff today that fits in perfectly with what I’ve been learning in teacher training. I’m excited for how I can augment my own practice and help others find their own chair yoga practice.
Naturally, we took a break at 3:23 pm to watch the SpaceEx launch. You could feel our collective relief as the rocket successfully launched into orbit. I would have liked to watch it outdoors, but where the studio is located didn’t provide the best viewing opportunity. Also, it was pretty sunny , but there was some cloud cover to the north that may have obscured our view. Plus, it was super hot!
For dinner, the hubby made a very yummy Blue Apron General Tso’s chicken. It was so good!!! In fact, the Mayor immediately declared that we must make that recipe again. The flavor was good, the chicken and bok choy were perfectly cooked. While we finished dinner and relaxed afterwards, we anxiously awaiting word from family in Minnesota that they made it home safely. Thankfully, we just got word that my sister in law made it home safe. My dad made it home about thirty minutes ago. Please pray for everyone’s safety.
