And this is Heart, my new best friend for the coming weeks. He needs a little behavioural training but is lovely otherwise. And check out his moustache! 🐱
Ladies and gents, may I present to you my first homemade bagel breakfast ever: sweet potato hummus and cucumber topping. (Cut melon for dessert.) I 💚 #Toronto!

Arielle Nash-Degange doing a brilliant job teaching anatomy at AYCT. Did you know that elbows are backward knees? ;) #ashtanga #yoga #ytt #toronto (at Ashtanga Yoga Centre)

Thanks to jet lag, I woke up at 4.30 am this morning - “just in time” for David’s 6.30 am led Mysore class. “Just in time” is obviously a joke because I live a five minute walk away from the shala only. But I killed the waiting time well by speaking to my boyfriend on Skype. Class was great. For some reason, every led Mysore seems to be the most sweaty I ever took. I was practicing on a Manduka mat for the first time (available for use at the shala), and oh my it was slippery! I ended up buying a Manduka lite and mat towel nevertheless… In hopes that all that slipping will build extra strength. But it was funny, too: In Chakrasana, I just flew behind (beyond) my mat and slipped on the sweaty wet floor and almost landed on my face. But I was happy I managed them in the first place, given I had been up for the better part of the last 48 hours. But everyone at the studio was and is really nice, so I’m not worried about embarrassing myself at all, hahaha. Jeppe, the Danish guy, is also here. In fact, our first Assistant Teacher Training class starts in 45 minutes and I better get ready and going. I’ll keep you posted!
Hurrah! Hurrah! :)
I’m just packing for Toronto, will keep you updated.
Knee pain! Yikes! It was there throughout my practice, more intense than usually and even before I started. Especially when bending the knees a little for jumping (right side only). Strangely, there was no pain in all half and full bound lotusses. I could feel the lack of practice since having returned from Stockholm, too. I have been wanting to do so much more. Oh well.
I’m also debating whether or not to bring my mat to Toronto. I might just buy a new one there. I will be flying out Thursday morning. Very soon.
