Last weekend, we went up to Seattle. It was super fun but real quick….24 hours quick. I mentioned in a past post that I was going to a Jasyoga workshop…well it was a teacher training. I wasn’t taking it to become a teacher but hoping that I would have a better sense of how to put together some “practices” for myself.
We drove up to Olympia Friday night and stayed with some friends. Finally got to meet the 9 month old Christopher.
We got to Seattle early enough to go to Top Pot Donuts. I know I know donuts before yoga. Dumb I know! But we are not in Seattle that often and they are delicious!!
Dan dropped me off and was going to pick me up 6 hours later!!
Jasyoga has a “mobile” studio so they do not have one of their own. They rented this space which was awesome.
I really enjoyed the workshop. Bree was awesome.
We talked a lot about balance. The yoga solution is: performance, injury prevention, and recovery. We went through practices, discussions, and critical thinking exercise for all the topics.
We didn’t practice as much as I would have liked. Definitely different than I expected but it was still interesting and I had fun. In other news, Erin(the founder) has just put out a bunch of new videos for balance and for runners so I’m pumped to practice some of those.
Dan picked me up and we headed to Green Lake where there is a 3 mile running loop.
He ran the warm up lap with me and then I was on my own with some hard work to do for the 2nd/3rd lap.
We had planned to head to the Oiselle store and head home but some friends happen to have a babysitter for the night so we went to dinner with them instead.
Super fun trip. We left early Sunday morning so I could come home and go for a bike ride. If anyone is wondering what Dan did in those 6 hours: I was pretty proud of him. He did a whole shit ton of tourist things. (I was actually kind of jealous)
One last side note: We are still talking about the Top Pot donuts!!
