1. Began my day with a boot camp class given by Core Power Yoga. Bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, partner work, drills & yoga mix for 90 minutes.

2. Grabbed a green juice & headed to the Expanding Light Meditation Dome. I loved the beginning of this class but found I was in more of a napping place then a meditating place. My eyelids were heavy… so off I went to lie down…

3. …Had one of the most fantastic naps ever, seriously napping rules. I woke up 7 minutes before my alarm to the gentle clinking of dishes. I got up in a daze & opened the door to a beautiful table of food & the sweet faces of my Wanderlust roomies. Dreamy. I ate my lunch all blissed out & then got ready to…

4. …Take the cable car from 6200 feet to 8200 feet to my next class. The ride up was breathtaking and I didin’t bring my camera. oopsy. The rock formations and view were unreal. All that beauty woke me up & I was ready to practice again with Kathryn Budig, this time on what is usually the outdoor iceskating rink during the winter months. This class was called Highway to Hamstrings & was a tad out of my reach but I loved it!

5. Back down the mountain I went to get ready to celebrate my friend, Srutih’s second year in a row win for being the biggest fundraiser for Off The Mat Into The World. A special class was being held & lead by Seane Corne (founder of OTM) & Michael Franti. I took photos, met Tristan Prettyman, took a walk because it was taking so long to get the audio all together and then returned for a yoga-love-music-appreciation-party! I laughed, cried, danced & hugged it all in & out. Amazing.

6. On our way back to the condo after that emotional breakthrough gathering a little girl came up to me & I think I’ll just post here what I said on facebook that evening: A little girl just came up to me & told me I look like one of Santa’s elves. I said thank you & that I stopped growing when I was 11. She looked up at me all sparkling & said, “that’s good, you’re more like a kid & you always want to remember what it’s like to be a child & not a grouchy adult.” Wise little girl.

7. Danced away to Michael Franti & Spearhead until I couldn’t dance any more… and sweet dreams.
