This pic makes me so excited for summer! This is our darling chickens' first spring, and boy are they pissed! Silly summer chicks, they don't like all this muddiness. But I just throw a pallet of straw in their play area and they go to town. Such strong talons! Mighty beasts of feather and claw
All of life's problems can be solved with a pile of something to dig in.
Here is a shoddy pic of Peaches and Esmerelda from last fall... they are even bigger now! Big ol' fat chickies. They have been fairly consistent with eggs recently, usually 2 per day. This summer should kick it into high gear, if the sun ever comes out again :) Another rainy day!
Tonight I am resuming teaching my old yoga class at Loprinzi's Gym! I missed teaching, but I really enjoyed having the past year for a little more time to myself and my new house, not to mention attending more yoga classes. I can't wait to share the wisdom and experience shared with me from my teachers, and apply the fundamentals of anatomy I have been studying in my training workshops. I have always struggled with getting "off the mat" as a teacher, walking around and observing students' bodies and unique alignment. The teachers I study with have such mastery of the voice, their call guides students effortlessly through complex and balanced sequences. Granted, I realize the studio where I practice is a home to many experienced yogis, whereas teaching in a gym brings in many beginners to yoga, although with high fitness levels. Its natural to want to look around, and want to watch the teacher guide by example. Its just a matter of finding that balance... OM ॐ
