Thursday is our favorite farm day of the week all because of Diane! Diane is our yoga instructor who comes to the farm to lead us through an hour long special session geared specifically for farmers. She takes our “season” into consideration so that she can have us stretch those parts of our body that have been overused since her last visit. This past week we have been harvesting beans and onions so she had us do some yoga stretches that would help our thighs and lower backs. (I really can’t remember all the body parts that we stretched, she tells us, but it just doesn’t register in my brain memory.)
After yoga I feel like a new person. Diane is so special, because we are an hour out of town, so it would be nearly impossible for us to drive to town for yoga, which is why it is a blessing to have her come out to the farm. I need to take some initiative and begin doing some yoga on days other than Thursday.
