Call it sharing, teaching, instructing or whatever…..I find myself always in a position of doing it! I simply cannot stop. It’s not that I’m a social butterfly, far from it, I rather lean toward the contentment of books, computer, good TV programs and close family than social events.
It has something to do with wanting to help others be the best they can be.
So here I am in our winter RV park in Yuma AZ and I decide to join a yoga class at our fitness centre. I’m used to practicing yoga, but available space in the RV is not conducive to Sun Salutations or Downward Facing Dog! Especially when two cats want to join in.

There is no instructor at our class but several of us ladies bring along our favorite yoga instruction DVDs, plug one in and just follow along with the screen.

I’ve practiced yoga long enough to realize that some of the students, being of more mature years, were going to end up hurting themselves trying to emulate the instructor on the DVD rather than adjusting the positions to work with their abilities.

So, my mouth having a life of it’s own, just opened up and out flew the words that stunned even my own ears……”Id be happy to instruct a class once a week for the month of January”.

Duh!

So here I am with two classes under my yoga mat. Thus far, I am being asked to continue the sessions into February and March and also if I would do private lessons. I don’t recall writing this on my Goal List?? What does the Universe have up it’s sleeve??!

Hey, I know! This is how the Universe is interpreting this following goal of mine: “I am 100% committed to doing what it takes to be incredibly physically, mentally and emotionally healthy”.

Such a smart Universe! Never question it. By doing lots of yoga I will be in great physical condition, the concentration, study and preparation for the students and classes will keep me mentally sharp, and, best of all, because of my love of helping people through sharing great information, I fulfil my greatest emotional desire.

Here is my yoga class of over 20 ladies


And yours truly in “Triangle Pose”

Be very specific in wording your goals, or you may find yourself winding up in “Pidgeon Pose”! The Universe has a sense of humor.

I got a free tooth polishing today! And a superb “chiropractic” neck workout.

Yup, all I had to do was smile; all I had to do was smile and hold my head up.
Oh…..did I mention I was on a motorcycle riding across the open desert on a WINDY day? I ate more grit than a whole tube full of dental polish and with every hefty gust of wind my full-head helmet whipped my neck into positions that made me reminiscent of green pea soup.

LAS BANDITAS!
Where’s the nearest bank? We’re all ready for the holdup. Not quite. My friend Noreen, on the front seat, graciously loaned me a dickie to cover my nose and mouth.

AN OASIS? A MIRAGE

Now how about this? Water, a marina right in the middle of the desert?! Yes, this is “Martinez Lake”, really a tributary of the Colorado River. Here is where our troop of bikers had lunch on the patio.

ROLLIN’ ON THE DESERT

Had to end the day with this self portait:

Stay tuned for the next adventure!
