*happy dance, happy dance, happy dance!*
Imagine a three-year-old singing, “I did it, I did it, I did it!!!!!”
After scrambling for weeks, I’ve managed to get the funds together for the Bryan Kest workshop in late September. It’s just over a month away. I’m so excited I can hardly stand myself.
Some of you may know that my daughter's birthday is the same week as the workshop (right on the equinox.) I have consulted with the husband and he's ok with having the party a week ahead of time. I'm planning a party at her school on the actual day of. She'll be fine with it - she's three; it's not like she's going to remember the exact date of her party. I, on the other hand, would be resentful and bitter if I missed this workshop. So she'll get what she needs, and I'll get what I need. At the moment I'm not sure where Brian fits in, poor guy. Well, I'll just hafta make it up to him... *cough* somehow.
Friday night is an opening session with an introductory get-to-know you kinda thing – I’m guessing so Kest can get an idea of the different levels of practice in the class. Then a one-hour class.
Saturday, a three-hour morning class. In other words, welcome to the sweat shop.
Late Saturday afternoon, a two-hour class he calls, “Long, Slow and Deep.” I wonder if this is something like a yin yoga practice, where the poses are designed to work the connective tissues. Whatever, it sounds yummy.
Sunday morning, another three-hour class. And I’m desperately hoping it will include some meditation, because I know at some point I’m going to need a break.
Three hours at a go. God help me, what have I gotten myself into?
I can’t wait.
P.S. It just occurred to me what a powerful date this will be for the workshop. So much of yoga is about balance, so to have a three-day yoga intensive on the autumnal equinox, where summer glides into fall, and day and night are exactly the same length is... well, it's pretty freaking cool, is all.
