Almost out of the woods and to Grandma’s house

I’m at Yoga School this week and it’s been an interesting experience. Yesterday was off to a hellacious start with a very “tonic” practice of “Boat”, “Warrior”, “Locust”. Apparently, the word ‘tonic’ is yoga-speak for “suffering”.

It’s rather appropriate. We’re working in Chapt 2 of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and oh boy, that’s all about the suffering.

More later on the stuffs I’ve learned. Just hoping that this morning is a little less “tonic”.

Thanks for reading and Namaste,



About Kate MacKay

I'm a certified Viniyoga teacher, in Fredericton, NB. I was a 9-1-1 operator and emergency services dispatcher for 22 years. Surprisingly, the two worked well together, or as I liked to put it, from the sublime to the ridiculous -- all in a day's work. I'm currently off work as a result of a stress-induced cardiac condition that's thrown a few crimps in my lifestyle. I'm not actively teaching yoga in the classroom right now and probably won't for several more months. That said, this blog is one of the forms of practice I can do and I thank you for joining me in this exploration of all things yoga.
