I wanted something new. Something awesome. I wanted to have a program for my classes and my writing that would make a difference and help me grow as a teacher, as a woman, as a yoga practitioner.
It had to be sexy, yet clean.
And I still wanted to teach unisex classes, and not use words like vagina, unless it was because we needed a giggle…. But yes; I needed something. Something BIG.
I m not going to end this paragraph joking: I felt like I had a hole inside of me that needed to be filled. But I can’t make any promises for the rest of this blog post 😉 So that’s your warning right there.
A 100 Day Journey
I like 100 Day Journeys. Never completed one, but I like them. Maybe you need to train for it right? Either way, with what I m about to do, a 30 or 40 day challenge won’t work. Because I m going to educate myself in a Taoist lifestyle method known as The White Tigress, and my primary goal is to lengthen my menstruation cycle. Since a cycle is 28 days, and not every month is the same, I need to do this for a longer period 🙂 before I know if it’s working. Also: the book is pretty extensive, and I also bought another book (less obscure: Cultivating Female Sexual Energy by Mr and Mrs Chia) to fill in the holes (oops, there we go again), so I have a lot of studying to do.
To make matters worse, I only just found out that the diet from The White Tigress is diametrically opposite to what I just started eating for my teeth. And while I m writing this I m suffering a violent tooth ache, probably in response to an orange that The White Tigress prescribed!
So to go on this journey with conflicting dietary guidelines is another challenge.
Next to that, I think aspirant Taoist usually spend 9 years or so studying this before they get anywhere.
All in all, I reckoned 100 days would be the absolute minimum in order to get anywhere.
Sign up: The 100 Day Tutelage of Hsi Lai
I crafted a beautiful new blog (with claimed domain name!) so you can follow my journey. I already posted a front page. The blog is free, even though it will be copyrighted material and I intend to use it later for a self-help book I m writing. The 100 Day Tutelage of Hsi Lai is my research project for the book.
So the story 100 Day Tutelage of Hsi Lai will not be included here in this yoga blog, nor will I talk about it much in class. If you want to know all those juicy things, then follow a The 100 Day Tutelage of Hsi Lai ;
What I will do in class, and in this blog, is give the yoga exercises.
