Today I ambled into the studio with a stiff thoracic spine, a dizzy tired feeling, and a general "I hope I don't look like an idiot in this class" state of mind. Luckily for me the universe decided to be kind to my weary body and give me a wonderful instructor and a beautiful flow to open up that spine, express my hearts intentions, and flow into the day with a true sense of purpose, relaxation and energy all at once. Who needs Espresso when you have Jill and Vinyasa?

I'm so glad I did... It was total peace today. I was alone in the studio the entire session and I get some serious work in. I can really feel the difference of regular reformer work is starting to develop.
