What I do in St. Louis

So a lot of people have been asking me (Kim) what I do all day in St. Louis. Since I'm not working or in school at the moment. I honestly have been really busy and find all kinds of fun stuff to do. My most favorite thing that I do 5-6times a week is yoga. I adore yoga and have for the last two years. I first discovered it at USU when I took a class. I have sinse taken classes at my gym in Phoenix and here in St. Louis go to a Yoga Gym. I love Yoga Gymns because may of the teachers have 20 plus years experience and I sure learn a lot from them. I focus on all types of yoga. My favorite is called vinyasa flow yoga which is a flowing powerful type of yoga in which you follow your breath while going in and out of poses and it is a little non-stop. I then do 2-3 times a week power yoga (similar to Bikram Yoga) which is done in a 90 degree heated room. It is a step up from vinyasa and is more fast placed, the heat causes you to sweat A LOT! It is so cool to see drops of sweat coming from your forearms and calves. I love that type, because I feel like all the toxin buildup in my body is being released. I do one other type of yoga once a week Yin Yoga, which is a calm, yoga. It focuses on increasing flexibility and not on strength training. You get into a pose and hold it for four minutes and interesting enough that is very difficult. But, I truly love this and am so happy that I've been able to participate so much in it.
I also have been scrapbooking, biking, and touring all the museums around St. Louis. I've found a new found love of books and read a lot. I also really enjoy the New York Times. So all-in-all I've had a great summer thus far and am excited to enjoy more.
