I now pronounce you…

June 17, 2010

Since it is as tough as ever for me to secure a good man, or any man at all for that matter I’ve moved on and stepped up my commitment to YOGA.

On Tuesday, the 15th of June Marla Elizabeth Thornes was lawfully wed via bank account to Yoga Sutra’s teacher program. The ceremony was informal and brief, but lovely  and meaningful.

Yes, the honeymoon period has officially begun. At this point, as a part of my training package I have unlimited yoga at the studio in preparation for my training program which will not officially begin until September. For our honeymoon we’re going to enjoy plenty of Iyengar classes and vinyasas but we’ll also get a little experimental…I’m talking Ashtanga (led and mysore), aerial yoga, and hot yoga.

I seem to have chosen just the right time to get involved with this studio, as they were already stellar but will be expanding as of June 30 to a much larger facility that will feature much more space and new studios to house the hot yoga and aerial yoga they are adding. All of this will be open to moi. I can’t wait to dangle and sweat profusely, respectively.

Seriously speaking though, this will be the honeymoon indeed because this training is going to be no joke. I gather after my meeting on Tuesday that this is one of the most intense trainings around. I. Can’t. Wait. The training largely follows teachings of TKV Desikachar, as he follows in his father’s (Krishnamacharya) yogic footsteps. Krishnamacharya is responsible for training both BKS Iyengar, Patabi Jois and most obviously TKV Desikachar. At this point I don’t know my in-laws very well, but I’m going to be reading up on them starting with The Heart of Yoga. I imagine these are dream in-laws. No monster-in-laws here.

I guess I plan on sharing my training via Dharma Chameleon. Don’t you worry. You’ll all get your fix. I won’t become one of those brides that gets all obsessed and disappears.
