Today was my first day back in action after the cold subsided. I taught a Gentle Healing Yoga class and my voice held up for about 70 minutes, and then started crackling. Or so says Chris who escorted me to the studio and assisted with prop placement (and then joined in as a student). Actually I think he was there to be sure I didn't overdo it!
It felt good to make it through a whole class and feel peaceful at the end. I had four new students and one who I knew from before. The range of familiarity with yoga, and comfort with moving in and out of gentle poses, was quite wide. But the props helped me keep all of the students doing the same pose at about the same time. Never a dull moment!
I'm feeling better than yesterday although still somewhat slower than before the onset of the cold. I plan on taking it easy for the rest of the day, playing with Pickle (my dog), answering emails, and just recharging my batteries for whatever tomorrow may bring.
