Inspired

This past weekend was really incredible beyond words. I have been practicing yoga for about 7-8 years now. First just at our gym, but later here. In fact, I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga for over 6 years now. I mainly started it because I liked the way it made me feel physically but this weekend made me realize how important it can be to me spiritually.

I took this same clinic with David Swenson last June, but only attended two classes. This time around I took the whole thing and experienced yoga in a whole new light. I got chills hearing all the yogis in the room with our "Oms." I think I am just beginning to understand what the practice is all about. I guess I have the rest of my life to keep figuring out.

His wife Shelly was also a joy to learn from.

I am so glad I got to share this experience with my favorite boy in the whole wide world.

We ate here a lot (I think this is the original Whole Foods!)

As well as at Central Market.

I also learned that Texas can be a beautiful place.
