We think it was some sort of drainage hole, since it was at the bottom of the property’s slope. It just so happened to perfectly fit a trampoline inside it (seriously, the trampoline was level with the grass) and look like a pit where Scientologists would put suppressive persons. Very odd.

Wait, so does it kill a third of its victims or a third of the 5% of victims who go on to have encephalitis? Is it taking down people with no or mild symptoms?

Don’t even get me started on the use of mixed fabrics!

Yes,  yoga studio I used to frequent had cold lavender washcloths afterwards. She used to put them over our eyes while we were in shavanasa.

A bowl with good quality paper towels in it. Pour over chilled water with a capful of either rosewater or orange blossom water (food grade from an Indian or Persian groceris super cheap). Alternatively a couple of spray bottles with the same liquid should do the trick.

Definitely fans if it’s a gentle class not for sweaty exercise. I love it when my yoga classes have a breeze rolling through. My favorite class was one that had a roll-up door and fans; like an inside/outside type thing.  Read more

You may also wish to consider a spray bottle containing a 50-50 mixture of rubbing alcohol and regular tap water. I like to spray this mixture on my hands and legs after walking as I find it both cooling and (sorta) cleansing. The alcohol odor (if any) tends to dissipate quite rapidly as well, leaving me refreshed and Read more

I think the witch hazel wipes are a good idea. But if you want to reduce the trash how about a homemade facial mist? Everyone could lightly spray their face, back of the neck. There are lots of easy spritz ideas online.  And keep the lights off in the room if that’s possible. I'm sure your students will appreciate Read more

I love the idea of the witch hazel wipes! One of the worst feelings in this oppressive heat is just constantly feeling grimy (and underboob sweat). I have also found that minty/mentholated candies help, so maybe a little bowl of Life Savers or mint hard candies.

My vote would be for something like iced herbal tea, if that’s practical to store/bring cups for? I am a big believer in herbs and it might be a nice mood/spirit lifter as well as cooking? Read more

I think this is sorta a new thing?  previously idioms (that’s an idiom, right?) were mostly used in verbal conversation, so it was harder to notice wrong spellings and such.  I’m pretty sure articles have been written about this, but right now the only other one that comes to mind is “toe the line”, with a lot of Read more

Wait, do-outs, not action items? That sounds like someone was having a senior moment and couldn’t remember the phrase “Action Items” then came up with a lame replacement in the moment that unfortunately stuck.

“Adulting”, “toxins” (when not talking about actual specific toxins), “vibes”,

My two biggest pet peeves are ‘have availability’ instead of ‘be available’ and, worst of all, ‘inputs.’ Input is already plural! Ugh. Read more
