60 min yoga
I went to RYAH for their lunchtime vinyasa class today. I walked in, rolled out my mat, and glanced up at the teacher. NO! Remember the mm hmm lady? Well I totally forgot she teaches the Friday lunch class. D’oh! Thankfully she kept her “mm hmms” to a minimum.
Time for Friday Favorites – Music Edition!
Love, love, love Pearl Jam…and have since high school. I’ve seen them close to 20 times. No lie. When they come to Philly (or in the surrounding area) I often go to at least 2 shows. I’m in the fan club (super fan!) so I’m eligible for pre-sale tickets and can get some pretty good seats. And don’t get me started on Eddie Vedder. Saw him solo = amazing show!
For a really long time, I didn’t like any other bands. I would just listen to Pearl Jam. I’m making more of an effort these days to listen to the radio so I’m “in the know” musically. I rely on my friends Michelle and Trish to tell me what is “cool”. I don’t know what songs Katy Perry sings and I only know a few Lady Gaga songs (and this is all because of Michelle and Trish). Matt says I haven’t updated my iPod since 2005!
A few months ago I found a band (well Matt started listening to them first) that I love almost as much as Pearl Jam (no worries Eddie, you’ll always be number 1)…the Airborne Toxic Event!
Airborne Toxic Event
This band has been around for awhile but, as I already stated, I’m a little slow in the music arena. I cannot get enough of them! Matt and I went to the Keswick Theater last June to see them and they were incredible. I have been looking all over for a chance to see them again and found out they are playing at the Trocadero in May. YEAH! Actually, Matt was going to surprise me with tickets but I heard about it on the radio and ruined the surprise. BOO!
I don’t have a 3rd favorite band…yet. Maybe after I listen to the radio some more I’ll find one…
Have a great Friday!

Ahhh, yoga! So, I just got a yoga dvd for endurance athletes. I totally neglect my flexibility when running and am going to incorporate this!!
I think it makes such a difference. I haven’t been doing yoga long but I see the benefits already!

PEARL JAM!! LOVE!!
OMG. I can’t stand when yoga teachers have a verbal ‘tick’… drives me up the wall. It’s already hard for me to focus in yoga and when the teacher is yapping some crazy-talk, the class drags.
There’s this one teacher at the studio that I go to that says this a hundred times a class… and the way she says it gets me every time. Imagine a thick Midwest accent….
‘Breeeeeeeeeathe iiiiiiiiiiin. Breeeeeeeeeeathe ooooooooooout.’
