Thought I’d give you a little update as to my “goings on” since last week. We’ve had some fun stuff happening!
First of all let me say there was alot of love in our house for the entire Valentines Day Week! We had a celebration that lasted several days and spoiled each other silly. We had gifts, flowers, chocolate, ate dinner out and enjoyed lots of cuddling with one another. You might notice in that second photo a small “pinkish” bottle on the right? Thats my special Watermelon Flavored Vodka that I put in pretty jars and give to my friends. Its killer!!! So yummmy – and sort of dangerous if you know what I mean We are out Valentines Night with our dear friends Bruce and Jane – along with their kids and Hannah. We went to a local sushi/teppan place and let the chef cook “Kobe Style” for us. It was fun – the kids loved it and it was a nice way to celebrate with the family. Plus the food was good – and we even stopped by Coldstone on the way home for a small ice cream treat. A perfect night!
This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending some time with a master yoga teacher – Steve Ross. This was my first experience with Steve and he lived up to all the great things I had heard. This guy is a superb teacher and a wonderful SOUL! Seriously – some people are so genuine and nice they just exude happiness! And Steve is definitely one of those people. The awesome Yoga Studio where I practice – Guruv Yoga (www.guruvyoga.com) hosted Steve for the weekend and there were events from Friday night through Sunday afternoon. I was only able to attend Friday and most of Saturday but it was well worth it! One of my favorite things is a rockin playlist and let me tell you Steve Ross had that covered. Both Friday night as well as Saturday he had the best music playing! There were 30-60 of us each day flowing to really fun beats. Both flows were challenging for sure but the fantastic music made it all the more fun and motivating. Plus, Steve has a great dry wit and cracked us up the whole time. Additionally, I got to hear him speak about meditation and practice a few types of mantra and breathing techniques AND do a Yin Yoga class as well. In Yin yoga you hold the poses for longer periods to get into the connective tissues and really loosen things up. Its 100% different from a flow class but still very challenging in its own way! I was feeling it by Saturday night for sure! Steve is highly accomplished and his teaching background is quite impressive. But I found his demeanor and style of communicating to be my favorite things about him. I hope I get to see him again someday.
Steve was so kind to everyone and I am so glad I got the chance to practice with him! If he comes to your area – please treat yourself and go get to know him! He even signed my book copy.
Other weekend highlights included a movie and dinner with friends and a trip to the mall with my favorite stylist – Hannah!
Oh, and we had salads and soup from Panera last night for dinner and copious amounts of peanut butter m and m’s. Today -construction continues!
