Two Bits

Each Friday we share some tidbits from our week.  We want to break down these internet barriers and invite you into our lives and we’re hoping you’ll do the same.  You are welcome to share a bit of your week or day in the comments, or if they’re better represented by a photo, tag us on instagram @liveseasoned

liveseasoned_fall2015_oct2We saw the eclipse on Sunday! Did you? Many of our friends had a cloudy view in the valley, but fortunately the clouds had cleared from our view after a few minutes into the show. We turned off all of the lights in the house and watched the show from our porch. Since it’s Oct 2, I mentally know that it’s fall, but the warm days spent at the park have been messing with my mind! It’s so hard to even think about Halloween costumes, but in other news, I’ve had no problem thinking up a long list of projects that I want to work on for Christmas. Is it too early to begin “elving“?

I’m not sure if Sarah will be able to check in today or not, but tomorrow’s her last day of yoga teaching training, and then she’s going off on a big backpacking trip for two weeks. I can’t wait until she has the time (and internet connection) to fill us in on her adventures!

I’m here, I’m here! Once again, it has been a busy and fulfilling week.  I can’t believe my 200 hour yoga teacher training comes to a close tomorrow, but that’s probably just the sleep deprivation talking.  While we do work really hard, we also play hard.  The entire group ventured up to Sarankot, a nearby peak, to meditate during the full moon last week.  I took my Eno hammock along for the ride and everyone loved laying in it and gazing up at the sky.  I also took my tent and two of the other girls decided to have a slumber party with me.  We were all so cozy and warm snuggled together in my tiny tent.  Today I taught a yoga class to my peers.  I focused on self trust and worked on hip openers, twisting and arm balances.  Every single person in my class was able to get into crow and side crow, so I’m taking that as a sign of success.

Now that my training is coming to a close, it means I have to prepare for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.  If you follow us on instagram, you saw that I bought my permits.  Now I just have to buy a couple pieces of gear and pack my bag.  Hopefully it’s not too heavy.  Have you ever backpacked at high altitude? Any advice?  Looking forward to learning the ups and downs of the Annapurnas and sharing that will you all soon!
