So, where are you?

Hey, my Bikram partners in crime. It feels like we're in a "let's see other people" phase of our relationship. You all are clearly there (thanks, as always, for your comments!), but since the 101-Day challenge has ended, I feel like there's been a bit of a lull in the BBC (Bikram Blogging Community ;-). That's OK, though. I'm not complaining. I know we'll always be together. 

The last three weeks or so have been interesting to observe. I'm reminded that energy and passion needs both subject and object in order to thrive. Maybe because yoga is about healing ourselves so we can better serve the world, we need to be reminded of who is actually in that world. (You!) I feed off the energy y'all radiate when writing about your yoga practices in your blogs. Your passion inspires me to improve my own practice and to share in this BBC. 

So, where are you? In your practice? In life, if that's an appropriate question for you?

I admit I haven't been as attentive to the BBC as I could be, either. It's hard to keep up with Life once she's on her way. I've been pretty busy. I think the dust will settle a bit once the semester's over, but it's currently a whirlwind. I am definitely getting to yoga, however, and I am feeling fairly optimistic about my practice lately. How wonderful that when life plops you on the roller coaster and makes you ride and ride, there's always yoga to get you to "concentrate, meditate on yourself" for those special 90 minutes.

LOL Yolk :) I like this... where ARE you? Hahaha. I didn't do the challenge so this must not be pointed at me. I have actually been revved up in my practice recently. Since training I've been at 3-5 classes a week and that's been fine, with teaching. However I'm practicing more now and loving it. I think it's that training has started again and if those folks can do 11 classes a week, I can at least do four consistently and hope for more!

I'm... applying to go to a teacher training (non bikram) in Bali in August and I find out whether I get it or not on June 1... I have a back up plan - if I don't get it... I'm going to get pregnant! That's going to be a whole other crazy dimension of Bikram practice that I'll be blogging about too. (((hugs!)))

hahaha I feel the same way. Where is everybody? I am still here, practicing 5 times a week, enjoying life (not this weather) but SUPER busy at work, home ... what else? Ohhh, I am excited about my trip to Las Vegas. Can't wait to practice with 355 teacher trainees!!

Saludillos chica!!

Hahahaha. Anna, you know I love your blog and appreciate that you post. Yes, I'm going to have to ride the TT-driven energy!

Cirita, que bueno que vas a Las Vegas. ¿Viajas la semana del taller con Esak? Quiero practicar contigo. Un dia!

Yes, the din certainly has settled since the 101 challenge ended... :)

But, I'm still here, too! Life is certainly like that---she chugs along whether we're comfortably in our seats or dangling off the side and holding on for dear life. I find myself somewhere comfortably in the middle these days. It is a good place to be.

I'm still here! Practicing 5 days a week. I'm trying to decide if I want to go back to school. Which is exciting and intimidating at the same time!

I still love reading everyones blogs! They keep me sane as I'm chained to my computer all day :)

Funny you should post about this! I have been lurking but not ready every post on every blog...and I've not been blogging. But I miss the BBC! Perhaps it's time to fire up the laptop, dust off the blog and check in!
I'm so glad I still have my practice though! That's one thing I will not willingly give up..ever! If it were an object, they would have to pry it out of my cold dead hands!!

I am just now trying to catch up on my blog reading! Writing anything seems unbearably demanding. I was lucky enough to have lots of time on my hands during the challenge, but I started working 2 jobs at the end of April. It's tough to adjust! This whole "work" thing really gets in the way of yoga, blogging and blog-reading. Damn it.
