Preparing for Week 3…

The weekend is over and week 3 is about to start. From what I have heard it is going to be one of the most challenging weeks in the training:

 

(1) On the physical side, I think I am in good shape. My body is a bit sore from all the exercise but I am getting used to the two classes per day and I have found the balance in my nutrition to face the challenge successfully. I am drinking about 6-8 liters of water per day (1.5-2 gallons) that, in addition to my daily intake of Emergen-C (vitamin supplement) and a healthy and rich diet is keeping my body hydrated and full of energy.

(2) Tomorrow we have the first exam on Anatomy (muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems). I have been studying during the weekend and given my geeky nature, I think I am in good shape


(3) This week, we also start full-speed with the posture clinic (where we cover in groups all the poses of the class). We had a bit of posture clinic the first week (to cover half-moon pose) but in the next 4-5 weeks we will cover the other 25 poses (at 1 pose per day). That means that I will have to learn by heart the dialog of each one and perform it in front of the head instructors. A lot of material to learn by heart. Thanks to Otto (the owner of the Studio I practiced in New York), I prepare myself learning some poses in advance but I am sure this is going to be the main cause of my lack of sleep in the next few weeks. Will keep you posted.

 

As a final remark, I heard that Deepak Chopra may join us for a whole week in the training. For those who don’t know him (I didn’t know him either), he is a world-known authority on the connections between mind and body in the healing processes and the union of Western and Eastern wisdom in these matters. I am very excited since I am always open to meet and learn from world-known authorities 😉
