I have returned! Rawr!
I went to Boston from Sunday to Thursday and did four days of Mysore-style, which was too marvelous to be brief about. Fear not, I have pages, PAGES, of notes and tangents. ALSO, I met the legendary man with the podcasts, one Cody Pomeray, and CP is fantastic. Go hang out with him in the city. It's good for you.
The most attention-intense parts of my yoga practice were, as you expect, Kapo and backbends. Get ready for several posts running about those. And for my commenters on the prior post--yes, congrats appreciated! And for cautions about bending the back and taking the heels up, yes, I agree! There are developments here, too, from my Boston experiences, and so I will address cautions and advice in the blog posts to come.
Also, I met my nephew, who is 16 months old, and his youth is changing the whole family dynamic up there. That too, was very cool. Also, while in the northeast, there was more meat in my diet than I EVER have over here, but that seems, with one exception, to have been fine.
And finally: a week before classes begin, I suddenly wound up with a THIRD class to teach, which means that I will be teaching two art school classes, one composition class at the community college, and also grading two sections of 80 people each. That's one heck of a lot of work, but more money than I'm used to.
All of this is coming. Right now I have to put syllabi together. But stay posted!
