“Yoga is the study of balance, and balance is the aim of all living creatures: it is our home.”~Rolf Gates

I took the 5 AM Acela to New York last Thursday and had the day from hell.

I should have known. I felt sick to my stomach when anticipating going, and so I know better. I know to listen to that feeling. I – almost always – listen to my intuition.

I usually love love love teaching in New York but something told me that that day was going to be off.

Nothing flowed. My train was pulling into Penn at 8:44 and lost power -- all the lights went out –- and we sat for 30 minutes in the dark, one minute from Penn station.

So I missed taking our Brooklyn Studio Coordinator's class at 9 AM -- and also missed my practice.

It was about 10° so my walk -- or jog rather -- from Penn to Prana NYC was painful.  I have chilblains so my hands felt like knives were stabbing them – and when I arrived at the studio I knew I couldn't interrupt Craig's class that late. I walked directly to the Sixth Avenue F train to scoot to Prana Brooklyn to teach.

I never teach without practicing beforehand. I walk my talk.

My energy was off so I was attracting off things to me. I won't get into details but man it was the day from hell.

After teaching at Prana Brooklyn I took the F train to Union Square to meet with our Studio Coordinator at Prana NYC, but I got caught up talking to students and never got to talk to him.

When I got on the Acela to scoot back to Newton for dinner time with my kids, the train was packed and I sat down next to a woman who glared at me as if she wanted the seat to stay vacant. The conductor had announced many times that the train was oversold.

About 30 minutes into the 3 1/2 hour ride I laid my gloves on my seat -- left my backpack in the overhead bin – and went to get a snack at the café car.

Walking back through the quiet car – my favorite place to sit – I couldn't find my seat. My third walk-through I realized that a dude was sitting in my seat. I smiled and said, "Oops that's my seat." He said, "Oh, she said it was empty," pointing to the woman seated next to my seat.

I looked at her like, "WTF?" And she said, "I didn't know if you were coming back."


Then while catching up on emails our beloved babysitter told me she was out of town over the weekend when we were teaching teacher training. I incorrectly assumed that she was booked to babysit.


I could go on but I won't because Law Of Attraction is real and working every moment.

I got home and said to Philippe, "I gotta get this practice to more people. I don't know how they're walking around like that (having not practiced)."

Have you practiced today?

Have the best day ever!
