Well, well, what do you know? I didn’t get my ass down to the shala today. Instead, I actually did a whole bunch of errands that I had been putting off. When my plate was clear, around 11, I decided that I would try the new, old, Uptown Jivamukti, for something different, something fast. They have 45 minute express classes at noon. Off I went. Let me tell you, it feels damn good to be able to do EVERYTHING in a class. Once in a while, it is really, really nice.
I don’t know if Jiva Uptown is going to make it, anymore than they made it in the past. There were only three people in the room today – me, another student and the teacher. And it’s not like I am going to become a regular there.
Afterwards, I had one more errand to run at the synagogue, which entailed a fair amount of waiting around – I had to register the kids for next year’s Hebrew School with the registrar, and she was up to her elbows in registrations. So, I went, checked in with the registrar and then went into an empty classroom and did my seated postures. I felt great. Could be the Jivamukti class, could be the weather – far less humid today than it has been.
In any event, what to do tomorrow? I guess we shall see. I need to get back to the shala, I know I do. Sometimes though, I just love practicing by myself. It’s so much less crowded! So much less body heat! And it’s entirely doable since I don’t “need” the adjustments other than in Supta K, and even then, well, I can do some interesting self-assists in Supta K that I can’t do when I am being adjusted AT the shala.
Anyway, I think I need to get down to the shala, if only for the sheer discipline of getting down to the shala.
Tomorrow is another day…
