Yoga

I realized the other day that Yoga is far more than a trend similar to Tai Chi or the¬†Thighmaster or Thai Bo. It’s been around a long time and we’ve both been doing it ( on and off ) for several years now. What I often find most interesting is the huge ranch of people that often participate. Janelle has a membership at the hot moksha yoga studio here in town and goes many times a week. On the occasion that I will join here I’m always shocked to see an age range from 8-68 of people with all kinds of different body types participating.

I’ve been going fairly regularly this year but I should commit to attending at least once or twice a week.

I work in a cubicle all day long and frankly am just so mentally exhausted when I get home it seems like I just blob around….while I’m destined to do at least a couple more years of this until it gets paid of I got to realize that more physical activity is an absolute requirement.

Janelle and I did the “couples yoga” at the Noorish studio here and both really enjoyed it, while it’s good to have a membership somewhere (especially since we can’t replicate the hot yoga temperatures of 35c+) it’s even more important to just get spend a few minutes each day stretching, and if it’s with a cutie you care about…all the better.

 

 

March against Monsanto

Janelle and I had a great time attending our 3rd annual March against Monsanto walk on Saturday, it was a stunning day and it was just great to see hundreds of healthy like minded people out on a beautiful day. So many good speakers and I always love the performances by the Raging Grannies.

I’m really hoping to get more involved in a career that offers me something related to food security or sustainable minimalism/consumption. I just see how much happier (albeit also stressed from school work) the wife is now that she is transitioning from a career in a sterile (pun intended) “big” health system to something with a more holistic approach.

I got to get me a better camera to bring out…ah well

I also wanted to say that I had a great time helping out at the Jon Janzen nature centre’s composting ….centre? it was overcast and kind of rainy but I got to speak with several people about compost and pretty sure I convinced one guy to get out there and do it.
