I've already discussed my difficulties with weekend classes, as it's a break from my Monday-Friday routine. So I won't go over that again right now. It was the usual difficult Sunday class for me, but overall it went Ok. It was nice and hot with close to 60% humidity. But I thought I'd write about something I love about Sunday classes.
For a variety of reasons, the Sunday 3 PM class is stuffed with experienced and great yogis. One of the reasons is that Advanced Class is at 5 PM, so a lot of those guys do the 3 PM as their "warm up." Then recently we have some visiting teachers, as well as some of the people on teacher training. The trainees have Sundays off, but a few of them come in and do class on their day off! That's some serious dedication.
Needless to say, I don't go in the front row on Sundays. Not because I'm worried about a rough class, but honestly I'd rather be behind these super great yogis so I can watch them for any subtle things about the postures. It's awesome. So I set up in the second row and got to watch all of these incredible yogis do their thing. Very inspiring.
