Another weekend is just about here and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s been a really busy week and I’m looking for a few days that aren’t quite as fast paced.
Other than some yoga stuff on the agenda (more about that below), I also have a date night and some relaxing time planned. It should be a fun weekend.
Auditing 200 hour yoga teacher training
I did my 200 hour yoga teacher training at Passage Studios and finished it up in March. Since they run and intensive every summer and from September to March each year, as a graduate I’m always invited back to audit sessions – whether that’s the entire course again or just the sessions that I feel I need some more education about.
When I went through it last year we actually had one person who had graduated years ago but re-did the whole thing again. I was so impressed with her determination – it’s a lot of work!
So this weekend I’ll be taking in another session or two. The first one I’m interested is about making yoga inclusive. That’s one of the things that I’m really interested when it comes to yoga. How can we break down barriers and get people outside of the stereotypical thin, white, able bodied people in yoga classes?
The other session I’m thinking of attending is about cuing, demonstrating poses, and using our voice and music in classes. That is definitely a topic that I can use more practice with so I’m hoping to be able to make time to be able to attend.
I learned so much during my teacher training last year, but it was a lot of information. I’m hoping to be able to go back and spend some time going over the things that I want to spend more time on.
Midnight in Chernobyl
This week I started reading Midnight in Chernobyl (affiliate link) by Adam Higginbotham. It’s a monster of a book, but it’s worth it so far because I’m having a hard time putting it down already.
It tells the story of Chernobyl from the planning and building of it until the aftermath of the explosion that happened in April of 1986. I can’t remember who told me about it or where I read about it, but I’ve had Midnight in Chernobyl on hold at my library and I finally got it earlier this week.
I found these last weekend when I was with my boyfriend at the grocery store. They were so good – perfect for when you’re craving something sweet and crunchy. I’d compare them to cookies. Once you eat one it’s hard to stop! Needless to say they disappeared in just a few days.
I can’t remember what other flavors they had, but the salted caramel ones were absolutely delicious. If you happen to spot these at your grocery store and are looking for a sweet treat, give them a try.
What are you reading right now? Have any fun plans for the weekend?
