wired

i suppose you could say that i had nothing better to do last tuesday afternoon. the only thing i had on my schedule was a 7:00pm class at crenshaw yoga (see previous post).

there were so many things i could have done that day, like:
- hang out on the beach
- read one of the books from the "summer reading" pile by my bed
- do the crossword and sudoku puzzles in the LA times
- watch one of the videos on my must-see list
- spend some time on the driving range

you know, something productive.

instead, i dropped by the coffee bean and tea leaf on wilshire to claim my free coffee, courtesy of the upcoming movie "the devil wears prada" and their "national coffee break day" promo. and after i got through half of my large iced coffee, i was so wired that i got into my car and kept driving. and driving. and driving.

and somehow in my heavily-caffeinated state of mind, i decided to drop by a bunch of yoga studios that were "on the way" to crenshaw yoga so that i could pick up yoga schedules, see what events were coming up, and check out their sale bins.

now that i think about it, none of those studios were really on the way to my final destination. in fact, crenshaw yoga was probably closer to my home than any of the places i visited. but my wayward journey wasn't for naught; i found a mari dade tank top for $20 in bala's sale basket and a yogamonk capri bottom for $23 on liberation's sale rack. needless to say, i bought them (again, i blame the caffeine for letting me succumb to the temptation). i also found out that golden bridge had a facialist who was highly recommended by the ladies working the front desk (and if i had the rest of the day free, i might have gone for that, too).

still having time on my hands, i decided to swing by los feliz to get to yummy yoga. ever since its transition from yogamatt, i had been planning to drop by, pick up a schedule, and maybe even say hi to ducky (and if you've been following my path so far, you'll see that at this point i've now gone way out of my way. go figure).

unfortunately, i had gotten there between scheduled classes; the gate was closed and no one was there. the only visible clue that it was still a yoga studio was the sign "YOGA" on the front of the building and a class schedule taped onto the front gate. not wanting to write off the visit as a waste of time, i walked back to my car, got my old yogamatt schedule and a pen, and proceeded to write in the schedule updates.

so while yummy yoga's website is still being worked on (which means you have no way of getting their schedule unless you physically go there like i did), here's what i scribbled down... and you can blame any errors on that large iced coffee!

After living in Los Feliz for 11 months and FINALLY deciding to try a YogaMatt class tomorrow, I searched google and happily found your blog instead of a YogaMatt site! What happened with YM? How long was it open? Your blog is great!namaste-

hi peggy --
i think it was in september or thereabouts last year when matt reyes decided to open up his own studio, yogamatt. i'm not sure if he chose los feliz because it was closer to his home, or because he wanted to share his style of yoga with the east side, or both. but when his west side followers complained that it was too hard to drive crosstown to get to yogamatt, he ended up opening yogahop in santa monica. trying to manage two studios proved to be a massive undertaking, so he asked ducky if she could take over yogamatt. she agreed and renamed it yummy yoga...
at least that's how i think the story goes :)
hope that helps!
