Blissful Yoga 30 Day Challenge – Day 26

day 26

I changed my mind about what class I would take today several times.  First I was going to go to Yinyasa at the new Scottsdale studio.  Then I realized I could get to an earlier class- Hot Flow.  Then I had a margarita at lunch.  Then Hot didn’t sound like a good idea anymore.  Finally, I settled on Restorative at Arrowhead, which I believe was improved by the aforementioned margarita.

This doesn’t directly have anything to do with yoga, (I suppose I could muster up some sort of mumbo jumbo to connect it… let’s just skip that.) but I’m watching a really fascinating show on Science called To See or Not to See.  It’s all about eyesight and other senses.  One really interesting thing was the connection between sight and taste.  They gave these culinary students colored drinks and asked them to name the flavor.  The trick was that the color did not match the flavor.  And a lot of them were completely wrong about the flavor because the color fooled them.  Cherry cool aid doesn’t taste anything like cherries, for example.  But it is red.

Pretty fascinating stuff if you ask me.  Check it out if you get a chance:

  1. I know, it’s crazy! How we’re all preconditioned when it comes to food. Have you been to one of these restaurants where you’re eating in the dark, served by blind people? You’re not told beforehand what you’ll have, and I couldn’t guess any of the things on my plate. Scary!
    When I did this Sadhana Intensive Course at an ashram in India, the food was not spiced, no salt, no sugar, nothing. It had no taste – but the taste came back after about one week, it was crazy. Suddenly the veggies were tasting amazing 🙂
