Some days are just built to be a roller-coaster. This was one of them- some amazing highs (WE MADE 55!!!!) and some lows...
This morning a lady fainted on the bus. But it was so hard to tell if she was breathing- her neighbour called out in alarm that she had stopped breathing and I called an ambulance and kicked into action the first aid training I'd had from the Military and from British Red Cross (for yoga teaching). Thankfully she made a full recovery. What a start to the day.
Then, for yoga happenings I had the best day ever!
I had my first Vintage Glamour class at 11 am. If you are below 60 you are just not vintage or glamorous enough to be welcome! We got all fancy with the props- chairs, walls and cushions (for cushion read rolled up jumper).
I met with James of Jericho Coffee near Oriel to confirm a yoga session with the Boatie girls he coaches.
Most importantly we reached the Yoga Quota of 55!!!!! This means the 50 people for the Big Issue class has been met and we're already 5 into Oxford Youth's Yoga Quota. Awesome! I am so humbly chuffed with all the Yoga Quotees who've made this happen. Boom!
But then another low.... (an amusing one mind) I was faffing around for so long saying thank you on Twitter and Facebook that the people who rent the room above me thought I'd gone home and locked me in!!! Uh oh! Luckily the Lush people were still in a super important meeting downstairs with someone who looked like a lady from Head Office. My fervent calls to their landline and all their mobiles got through and Tilly saved me! Oops! Sorry for disturbing your important meeting!
Seriously, today is a milestone though. I had absolutely no idea we could get to 50 visits in 2 weeks alone. My business case predicted around 1.5 people a week in the first few months and I thought I'd have to rope in (blackmail) family, friends and choir ladies to make the 50 by early November. This 55 has been done with only one sympathy visit from @moaningmundy and the rest all genuine Yoga Quotees! I'm overwhelmed. Thank you for getting behind this, people.
