How many yoga classes can you teach in a week?

Answer: Too Damn Many. Fifteen classes this week, Monday-Friday. That's too many.

I napped for two hours yesterday and woke up feeling like the world was tilted sideways. Eating some pizza helped, as did spending time with a wonderful friend on her birthday. Woke up this morning ready to record one of the sequences I taught 7-8 times in two days. I wouldn't recommend doing it that many times in a row, though.
