I do not know if it because I am in a summery mood. Maybe it has to with challenging myself with something I normally do not do. Whatever the reason I have been spending a lot of time doing yoga. I am getting up earlier to do a session. Then when I get home from work I do a longer session. Basically I am spending between an hour and a half to two hours a day doing yoga. I feel great!
I realize I will never be one who will wrap themselves into a pretzel, but I am starting to feel and see the results. It is more than just physical. I have noticed that I am more at peace with myself. My pace has slowed down. I am sleeping so good.
YouTube is my yoga resource. Yoga with Adriene is the series I have doing. She is the quirky gal from Austin. Texas. She is very motivating. I will confess that sometimes I would like to throttle her, but overall she is my friend. I could not handle someone that is overly perky. I do not do perky.
Yoga is challenge for me because I am about as graceful as a rock. When I run, I can tune out and dive deep into my music or my thoughts. With yoga, I have to concentrate on every single pose/position. Right now I am just going with it!
I want to keep my summer frame of mind and the positives of yoga. Asking me to be a tree no longer makes me crack up. Progress. Nice, right?
Enjoy the weekend.
