Today I also went to practice at a studio called Freret Street Yoga. Such  a nice level 2 hour flow. Made me so happy to be in my element again! 4 Days of drinking really depresses me and makes me feel super fat and useless! oh well first Mardi Gras. YOLO. Tonight making diner for my generous hosts! Missin Nigel today and I hope he’s having a beautiful day.

P.S. Today in yoga we practiced Nadi Shodhan…alternate nostril breathing. Excellent breathing technique to calm and center the mind. Our mind has a tendency to keep regretting or glorifying the past and getting anxious about the future. Nadi Shodhan pranayama helps to bring the mind back to the present moment.

heres a video on how to do it!…
