And must facebook/tweet that she is going.
And possibly check in on foursquare or yelp.
She wonders if anyone would mind if she instagrammed the pretty candles set up for Candlelight Yoga.
She breaths in and out and tries to focus.
Out of the corner of her eye, she sees a new twitter mention notification flicker across her screen and shoves her phone under her sweatshirt so the light won’t distract her or anyone else.
She hears the teacher say something really profound and wonders if she could quickly tweet that little gem out. Maybe with a #yogatweet or #yogawisdom or #frommyyogamat hashtag.
She notices that her yoga mat is looking really worn and tries to remember who sent her this mat for review and if they’d be willing to send her a new one.
She wobbles a bit in a balancing pose and thinks that if she falls, someone needs to capture it in a picture so she can blog about what a big klutz she is.
She regains her balance and thinks there’s got to be some sort of metaphor there about this pose and finding a work-life balance. She should remember that and blog about it later.
She realizes she’s actually putting her yoga pants to use at yoga and not just as a mom blogger uniform. She wonders if she should take a poll on facebook and ask how many people have worn their yoga pants for actual yoga.
She thinks perhaps this calls for a new pair of yoga pants.
And she mentally reviews her emails, trying to remember what athletic wear companies she’s worked with.
She notices the super cute outfit the girl beside her is wearing and thinks oooh, post idea: cutest yoga gear for the couch or the mat.
She gets distracted by the really loud breathing coming from the only guy in the class and thinks that if she ever managed to get her husband to a yoga class, she’d need to vlog that.
She takes a sip from her water bottle that she got from a blogging conference. Because damn, it’s hot in here. She could never do hot yoga.
Post idea: different types of yoga classes.
Another post idea: 9 things you should know before you attend your first yoga class.
She realizes her mind has been racing during the whole class and maybe that defeats the purpose of yoga class. But then she realizes that she was told in another yoga class that it’s impossible to totally quiet your mind unless you’re dead. She wonder if she ever published the post about that or if it’s just sitting in her drafts.
She lays down for final relaxation and figures no one would appreciate the light from her phone if she checked in on instagram real quick.
She manages to actually relax but then almost starts to giggle when she thinks about the possibility that she could fall fast asleep and somehow be left in the yoga studio overnight. The weird places moms will fall asleep if given a chance to actually rest- another post idea.
On the way out, she gets into a discussion with her yoga instructor about a yoga festival they’ve both been to. Gets looked at like she has two heads when she mentions she was there because of blogging.
Tweets that she survived the yoga class.
Drives home and immediately writes a post about what happens when a blogger goes to a yoga class.
