Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for your kind words in regard to the collision, unfortunately only the first two letters of the truck, first experience like this, no idea we had to called the police, when it happened the first instinct was to follow the truck until it turned to exit the subdivision and my daughter thought what if by following he/she cause some harm or more problem, so we decided to head home instead. We have to bring the Nissan Sentra to the collision center for evaluation y pay $500 of deductible to get fixed. Fortunately we are ok.

Congratulations for the awesome Yoga and Meditation practice on November! emoticon

Is it too late to report? If you got the license plate, they will probably still take a report, especially if you have damage to your car.

I made it to 27 days of yoga and 30 days of meditation for November. We had a house full of guests, which made the yoga a bit trickier. It was nice though to have guests for Thanksgiving.

LESLIESENIOR thanks for your kind words, at the moment the person fled we started following the truck but when it turn to exit the subdivision my daughter thought better to go home to avoid being in more trouble, we did not report it, although now I think, it would have been the right thing to do. It was Thanksgiving morning. The insurance ask us as well...

Best wishes and congratulations in reaching your intention for Yoga, Meditation and walking! emoticon

Oh my gosh Patricia. On top of everything else, a hit and run! I so grateful you are safe. I hope you reported it. But most importantly you are both well and safe.

Today I got my last walking miles in for my intention.
I also did a 20 minute self guided practice replicating the shoulder stand sequence that my yoga instructor did on Tuesday night. I also did forward folds and twists. I’m trying to digest Thanksgiving dinner. Ha Ha. (12 of 12 for my intention)
I met my meditation goal for November also.
Namaste to all!!!

Bravo KAYOTIC!!!!


Nov 27: 12/15 Morning Yoga, my own, and day 21 new Chopra Meditation, 19 min

Nov 28: 13/5 Vinyasa Flow, at the studio , 1 hour and day 22 new Chopra Meditation, 20 min

Awesome practice at the studio! like 50 people shared Thanksgiving yoga practice today!

We were driving back from our Thanksgiving Yoga class and in our neighborhood a truck Chevy suddenly stop ahead of us and back up like going to turn left to his/her drive way and hit us despite the fact that my daughter honked the klaxon, immediately the person fled the scene, and we started following him/her but my daughter thought it was safer to turn and go home, you never know what we could have gotten into...the car obviously needs repair, we are contacting our insurance to see what happens. In a blink of an eye things happen.... we are shaken but ok, it happened around 11:30 am

So glad to hear that everyone is healing. So smart to get help for your dog too. It was so traumatic for you all. Yoga is a blessing in these times.
I went to yoga at the gym last night and I’ll head there again in about an hour. (10 and 11 of 12). I’ll do yoga at home to finish my intention since they won’t hold class during Thanksgiving.

Stitches were removed yesterday morning from my daughter's finger, all the three fingers are healing well. Doctor was saying that her fast healing is all due to her being young... thanks God! grateful for that! We hired a dog trainer to help us train our dog at home, because after he was attacked he became nervous and growling when we met other people with or without dogs during our walks, and the barking also increased. Working this week with what we learned on Sunday, next lesson next Saturday, he looks more settled...My daughter went to her Yoga classes at the studio yesterday afternoon and with modifications she was able to do more. ..and little by little is getting out of her depression/anxiety episode....Thanks God. Grateful for that too!

I agree. Yoga, meditation, and breath work has made such a difference in how I handle life's challenges. Continued good thoughts for you and your daughter, Patricia.

I was gone again most of last week. My kids and grandson in San Diego needed me. So I was glad to go down there twice. It's a lot of driving but is so rewarding. Yesterday we were in Riverside attending our other grandkids' pre-Thanksgiving singing performances and then taking them home 1/2 day from school. We stayed for dinner and waited for traffic to die down before heading home. Beautiful day.

I did a 30 minute home practice today, self guided. I really needed to work out the kinks! (9 of 12 for my intention)

Namaste everyone!

Thanks LESLIESENIOR, the orthopedist surgeon found no need for surgery, only the splint and next Monday to remove the suture, She enjoyed her yoga class, it helped a lot because now her anxiety and depression grasped her after the traumatic event. Breathing and being in the present moment might be helpful but it is easier said than done, we keep working on it her and I.

Thanks KAYOTIC, she went to a Yoga class to find some inspiration yesterday, she did some poses that did not involve the use of her hands, she was more relaxed afterwards. Take care , colds last and with the changing weather kind of difficult to stay all the time warm and without temperatures changes. Best wishes! Get Well Wish your way!

My daughter saw the orthopedist surgeon, who cleaned the damaged fingers and put a new splint in the fractured one, he wants her to move the fingers to avoid stiffness.... he will see her again next Monday to remove the suture and check the healing of the bone...

Thanks for your kind words POINDEXTRA and LESLIESENIOR. We took our dog to the vet yesterday afternoon, fortunately the bites were superficial, right cheek and neck. The teacher's dog had a bad bite in the cheek, but the teacher decided just to clean the wound and apply Neosporin, she was leaving the city the afternoon of the events and was overwhelmed by her paying-bills-job(realtor). She left the dog with her boss. We hope her doggie heals well.

My daughter was in pain yesterday, Tylenol helped her, she does not feel her index finger, which is in an metallic splint, waiting to see the orthopedist on Monday.... breathing...

Great LESLIESENIOR! Keep the good exercise plan going!


Yesterday we had a terribly experience, last week we adopted an American Stafforshire Terrier 6 months old, 50 pounds, from a rescue group through my daughter's voice teacher who was fostering him at that moment. The day before yesterday, the same teacher brought her dog to be look after by my daughter, like other times when she goes out of town, because the two dogs knew each other while the teacher foster the 6 months old in her house for a week, no-one saw any inconvenience for looking after her for 6 days. Yesterday morning however, the two dogs attacked each other, she placed two bowls of food for each other but the teacher's dog got both bowls, and my daughter got bitten and had her index finger fractured and opened besides bites in the thumb and ring finger of her right hand and bruises in her left hand and left foot.

Immediately I called the teacher and explained the situation and my husband to come to get our daughter to the ER. The teacher got her dog, she was bitten in her cheek and our dog in his neck by the collar and cheek. We still have to take our dog to the vet, but my daughter could not sleep due to the pain and swollen finger which had three stitches and is in an splint to keep it protected.

We could get an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon that she had her right thumb ligament repaired last summer, next Monday 18. See what happens. Trying my best to be mindful and breathing, and trying to get my daughter to do it as well, but the bleeding, pain and scare was there. Breathing now....

Headed to a practice at the gym in a few hours. (6 of 12)

I am on track with my walking/jogging miles this month. Our temperatures a bit cooler (70's) so that has been really nice for getting out.

Prayer and meditation are so important to me every mornings, especially as the holidays approach.

Hi all,
Patricia, yes I did get the sand bags from Amazon. There are many to choose from.

I did a yoga practice at the gym last night and tonight. (4 & 5 of 12). Tonight she worked on standing poses and alignment. So good for my aging body!!!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Three yin yoga practices this past week and one for pelvic floor. That takes some concentration.

I found a yin yoga video last week where, while lying on our backs, she put a block under the sacrum. WOW, that was a fantastic hip flexor stretch!

I have to search that one again and book mark it.

Hi all.
Crazy busy week.
3 practices this week, 2 at the gym and 1 at home. (3 of 12)
The sand weights have been used at my former studio and now at my current instructor’s home when we do yin. I ordered my own online. They are great for weighing different body parts down during poses. They help deepen poses.

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Hi yoga lovers,
This month my intentions are:
12 yoga practices at the gym or at home (hatha, vinyasa, yin, restorative)
50 miles walking/jogging
Meditation/prayer/readings every morning (min.15 minutes)

I love the discussion of props. They are so useful. I also enjoy my sand weights during yin poses.

Namaste everyone.

KELLIEBEAN thanks for the tip of the block for crow pose, great that Yin Yoga is helping you. Also I looked up Dr Fishman POINDEXTRA and I posted the link in Yoga Videos in the Forum of his 12 Yoga poses vs Osteoporosis video. Thanks for sharing.

POINDEXTRA good that you are looking the advice of a PT and/or Certified Yoga instructor and listening to your body in regard to what poses you can do . Take care.

I just looked up Dr. Fishman Poindextra. I'd never heard of him. Very interesting.

I did the yin yoga video for flexibility. I've done it a few times since last month. My lower back has loosened up quite a bit!

THEN, I tried crow pose again, using a block under my feet to start, a tip I read recently. I was able to lift both feet up for a second here and there. Gaining confidence!

I will see the PT next week and hopefully get better guidance on the Fishman poses. If they can't, I'll reach out to a Yoga teacher I know for a couple of private lessons. Other than that, I'll just keep with the short routine that doesn't cause me any trouble!

HI all! I will continue Yin practice. I really feel this is improving my tight muscles. I love using my new yoga blocks, in addition to my towels and Mexican blanket.

I will add 1 pelvic floor practice each week.
