New pictures!

#1 Postby nicole » Mon Sep 26, 2005 10:53 am

There are so many forums to choose from, I didn't know which one to add these to, so I just picked here! I hope that's okay!

Anyway, I chatted with a few people about yoga practice when I joined, so I figured that I'd share these pictures of me, which were taken yesterday by an awesome photographer (nsoroma79.com). I love the way they came out, and had only a vague idea that my back looked that good. Hahaha. :)

Thank you (and everyone else who commented so far)!

Right now my week looks like this, but it changes depending on how busy I am. I am a little overwhelmed right now with my schedule, but I'm trying to make it work!

Monday - Elliptical at the gym for 45 mins-1 hour while reading/watching tv.
Tuesday - Power yoga class for 1.5 hours.
Wednesday - Power yoga class for 1.25 hours (beginners class where I have been "modeling" the poses for the new students, but still do the class right along with them in addition to demoing new poses).
Thursday - Power yoga for 1.5 hours.
Friday - BREAK!
Saturday - Yoga teacher training, where we typically spend 1 hour to 1.5 hours "practice teaching." So, most of that time I will be the "student" and doing the practice taught by my fellow trainee. Then, power yoga class for 1.5 hours after training.
Sunday - Power yoga class for 1.5 hours.

Crazy! The amount of yoga will calm down in December when I am done with training, I think. Well, the amount I do at the studio, anyway, because it is expensive, but the classes I'm taking now are included in my training tuition. And hopefully by that time I will be teaching, too! :) Then, I can return to the gym more, since I am still paying for that, as well! I need more hours in my day!!!

Nicole,

You look really awesome. You have great muscle and are very fit. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.

It is always nice to see fit vegan physiques and you are a great example of that.

Keep it up!

Have a great day!

-Robert

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Thanks so much, Robert!

And Crash, I actually did think about it! I saw the thread about that a while ago, so I will have to go hunt it down again for the info! Now I just have to pick which to enter!! It's really hard to pick a favorite. :)

Hey Nicole! :D

The moment i saw the first pic i thought the same as Crash ;)
:)

I'd be very happy to have you in the calendar!
The first picture is very cool, but i think color would be better. :)
No one said it would be easy.

Hey Alex,

I think the Black and White style looks pretty cool. I think most of the ones we're using are in color so this would be something different.

I really like the look of B&W photos.

Just my opinion.

Great photo by the way :D

Either black and white or color works for me. I am getting the disk this week from the photographer with the rest of the pictures on it, so maybe she has sent versions of the b/w ones in color. I don't know! It's hard to decide which to submit. The deadline is soon, as well, right? If there is any one that you guys like in particular, let me know! :)

I do some Yoga, too. So I know that it is hard work doing it as good as you do!
Is there a reason why you favor power yoga (beside it obviously creates a absolutely fantastic body)? Do you meditate as well?
Maybe you also have advice for me how to enhance my lotus flexibility?

Best regards,

David
