Gosh, tonight was one of those nights where I wonder how I lived before yoga?
I went and got my silly knee looked at before class by an Orthopedist. The imaging showed a bone bruise. So, all and all not bad news considering what it could have been. I had the bloody fluid aspirated from just below my knee cap and it feels loads better than it did earlier. Due to the procedure taking longer than normal I was running late to class, which meant I had to change clothes on the way to the studio while driving. Let's just say you can be very glad you were not there...it was hilarious! I got the studio parking lot right at 6 when starts and quickly called and let them know that I was running in. Needless to say I was NOT in a calm, meditative mood walking into the hot box!
Ame, the studio owner was teaching tonight. I love when she teaches, she gives great feedback, awesome energy, has amazing stories and all in all is just a nice person. BUT...I wanted to screech (visualize an owl!) out at her tonight. During Pranayama breathing I was trying my best to let the craziness of my day go...but, it seemed like she was talking way more than normal at that stage in class. I tried to tune it out and just focus....I wasn't so successful. :( Obviously, that's my issue and my journey. I'm still having issues with controlling my breathing throughout class. Hoping, hoping, hoping for a breakthrough in that area soon. For a great quote on this subject check out dancingj's quote on lz's blog. I LOVE it!
I've got a sore throat so I'm going to make some hot tea and go to bed early for once!
P.S. Does anyone know if it's Arnica that helps with bruising?
