Teacher, Are You Sure You're Looking at the Clock? --- Day 7/318

Walk: Iyengar Yoga Institute, Trader J's
Distance: 3.5 miles, Big Yoga


Iyengar Yoga Teacher (Not Ciwt) plus ropes, wall and blocks

Five minutes is a long time to be in a headstand for Ciwt.  And the same or longer for shoulder stand.  Not to mention a bunch of poses yanking (ooops) assisting herself with ropes, blocks, bolsters and using the wall and chairs to make absolutely sure she is doing the forward bend as deeply as she possibly can.

Such is Iyengar yoga.  Not fun, endorphin releasing like the movement yoga Ciwt has done, taught and now teaches herself.  But good for Ciwt because, even when teaching, she didn't put students in inversions or really any poses for long.  And now that she is her own teacher, No Way. So Iyengar and now those teachers trained in his system is Ciwt's (occasional/supplemental) taskmaster, at least for a while.
