Teacher Training: Spend a Lot of Money to be Yelled at by a Crazy Man in a Speedo in a Hot Sweaty Room with Hundreds of Other People

Yup, so as many of you know (or have guessed) I'm headed off to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in LA this April.  Now that the venerable Steve23 has posted a link to my blog on the Mission Yoga website, it's high time I share a few details!  I'll keep blogging about other studios when I can, but the focus of this blog will shift a bit from new yoga to the same yoga, every day, twice a day, in (as stated above) a sweaty hot room with a crazy man in a speedo yelling at me and a few hundred other equally crazy folks.  But let's be honest, I'm excited, and looking forward to sharing my progress (or lack thereof) with you all.  And what better way to kick it off than sharing my application essay?

Yoga Child, Funky Door Polk, and Funky Door Berkeley: Catchin' Up

Sometimes the stars when you want to write a blog post catching your six-person readership up on your yoga goings-on, so you idly perform a Google image search for the phrase "Catching Up" and you find yourself reading an article entitled "Catching Up With...former Oriole Don Stanhouse" illustrated with a photo of this delightful 70s fellow in what appears to be a Balancing Bear.  The universe works in mysterious ways...

Anyhoo, I've been on a few yoga adventures over the past few weeks and figured it was high time to catch you up!  We'll begin in Philly and also introduce a new Guest Blogger, Guest Blogger Laura.  Let's begin!
