The 27th Posture

Did I mention we've added a 27th posture to our practice? Well not officially but there is a daily ritual after class that we call the "27th posture".

Its walking back up all the flights of stairs to your room. Ugh as if 90 mins of yoga wasn't enough but its better than fighting 430 sweaty yogis for the elevator. The Hot Room is on the 2nd floor and so it means 4 flights of stairs for moi but there are others that live on the 9th floor so I shouldn't complain too loudly.

We have also gained some new body parts according to the dialogue - hands-palms and leg-heels. We can "cross our arms each other" (no thats not a typo on my behalf), "think very deeply about our standing leg" make it a "lamppost" and at times only have one leg. Ha ha ha ... ok I know its not that funny but I'm trying to find humour anywhere I can! I've been studying dialogue all weekend and its doing my head in. After a while none of it makes sense.

Speaking of which, Full Locust Pose awaits................time to fly.

From the Red Carpet in LA

So last night I went to the LA Film Festival in Hollywood!

Now before you get too excited I should probably admit that it was a short film festival for up and coming film makers so nobody famous was there. (Well nobody famous enough for me to know who they were.) They still had the red carpet rolled out and everyone got their photo taken against the sponsers' wall as they walked in - just like you see them do on ET etc.

The theme for the films was "This is my LA" and so it was really cool to see all the different iconic things around LA that people had put into their films.

Then it was out for dinner on Sunset Blvd. Oh it was SO nice to get out into the real world. To get out of yoga clothes and dressed up and talk to people outside of the yoga bubble! Its interesting though when people ask me what I'm doing here as they just can't get their head around what this TT involves. Mind you I can hardly get my head around it at times and I'm the one doing it!

Today, Sunday, was spent getting organised for the week ahead. Studying dialogue, getting groceries, studying more dialogue, catching up on emails and just for a change, more dialogue. Sigh..... what I wouldn't give to be having a Sunday roast dinner and then relaxing for the evening watching the Sunday night movie on TV! In time eh.......
