Good Monday Morning!
I hope you had a wonderful mothers day weekend doing all of your favorite things with your favorite people.
Have you been to a Karma Fusion class yet at the beautiful new Karma Yoga studio in West Bloomfield Mi?
If not the 945 class every Monday WB studio and/or 930 Tuesday morning BH studio awaits you!
My 28 year old, totally buff handsome son Ben (he’d totally kill me if he knew I were writing this) came to class with me last Monday with no idea what to expect. Knowing Ben he was quietly thinking “well, if nothing else I’ll stretch a little and it will be fun to hang with mom.”
It’s a beautiful thing when your grown children not only show a genuine interest in your craft by showing up to your yoga class but the mere fact that they want to be with you without any agenda.
In the Karma Fusion class we use light weights, 2-5 pounds, so I brought along a set of 8 and 10 pounders for the boy to ensure he was adequately challenged. Of course, I had no doubt Ben would feel plenty of physical and mental sensations. No worries at all!
And, of course mom was right!
Ben is training for an insane off road trail run marathon in New Mexico this month and a little triathlon in Detroit as well. He said not only was the class a super challenging workout for him but the slower fusion of resistance and weighted exercise, yoga poses, stretching, balance work and concentration skills was amazing. “What a great concept mom to be able to get all of that in one class.” By the way, Ben put down his weights quite a few times during class to give himself a rest, as I always encourage.
The core ball blew his mind when it came time to focus on the almighty core!
I’m so excited he’s coming back to class today. At this point in my life to look out into the room and see my grown son among the students – happy, smiling and looking so peaceful – well, there are no words, just pure joy and love!
Have a great week everyone. Hope to see you in class soon! Be sure to check out the Karma Yoga schedule at both studios for more Karma Fusion classes.
You will work hard, you will sweat, you will love this class!
