At 10:15 this morning, I have my second Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class. I took my first class on Thursday–a beginner’s class, the website explained. Beginners? By the end of the class, everyone was busting out their head stand moves–practically levitating, others were. Head stands, levitation, chanting in Sanskrit…needless to say (the most useless phrase, isn’t it? If I don’t need to say it, why am I?), the class was a tad advanced. Needless to say (there I go again), I woke up the next morning, with grumbling muscles I didn’t even know I had. Back of neck muscles? Above my elbow muscles? Pinky toe muscles?
I have class again this morning. I’m trying to mentally prepare myself, by preparing some recipes to cook for when I get back.
Four recipes I’ve come across this week have sounded really good. Two curries and two noodle dishes. I couldn’t decide which two I wanted to make, so I decided to combine the two curries into one curry and the two noodle dishes into one as well.
I also plan on making bell peppers stuffed with tempeh and some sort of grain (quinoa, bulgar, rice, etc.).
