OK, I guess I must bestow yet another Roll of Honor award, this time on my favorite yoga instructor in the whole world (and I have been through more than 1 or 2). I mentioned last week that I had, of my own free will, mind you, completed 21 sun salutes (on the same day, not just in one month) as per her usual practice of having us do this when class falls on a solstice or equinox. When I told her this she said, “I just had a vision of a panda doing the sun salute.” Of course what a panda would salute is not, perhaps, the sun, but something that is more near and dear to a panda’s (well, this panda, anyway) heart. Congratulations Amanda! (of Whidbey Island Yoga) You are now on the Roll of Honor! (certificate and cartoon arriving at class this Sunday!) (OK, the other thing that gets her on the Roll of Honor is that she indulges me in my obsession with my favorite spot, and doesn’t mind when I make unsuspecting newcomers to the class move if they get there before me.)
Be the Bear! Embrace the Cuppycake!
