An Auspicious Plan

I didn’t consider how the two fit together until this morning when I plugged the 40 days into my Google Calendar (yep, I’m that kind of yogi) and discovered that the 40th day will be the day before the Itsy Bitsy weekend.

Friday, I quit my job.

Sunday, I decided I needed a little structure to contain and
energize my personal yoga practice. I also feel my knee is telling me
to take a break from my spotty and therefore guilt-inducing running
plans while I focus on personal practice.

Baron Baptise, one of this country's more renowned vinyasa yogis, authored a book called 40 Days to Personal Revolution in which he lays out a progressively longer yoga and mediation
practice. He recommends eschewing other exercise in the process, to be
reintroduced later if desired.

Baptiste also developed a program he calls his "Yoga Bootcamp,"
a very western title for a weekend intensive yoga and mediation
retreat. Since Mac and Maya are staying a few days with his parents in
August while I pursue Itsy Bitsy Baby Yoga certification, I thought
that would be a good weekend to do the intensive meditation and vinyasa
practice and journaling exercises Baptiste recommends (though not on
quite the same schedule because of the training).
