Wow, what a week!
My family and I enjoyed traveling this Christmas to spend several days with family. And when you’re with family, unless it’s a family of yogis, let’s be honest, I simply didn’t do one bit of yoga while out of town.
The most amazing part of it all, I actually could tell a difference in my body without the yoga. I was stiff. I was tight. It felt as if my body was shrinking back into a ball, something I experienced earlier this year when I was suffering from a great deal of grief and depression. To say the least, I now know yoga was benefiting my body, as well as my mind, even though I’m still not that flexible or consistently meditating.
So, last week was a no go but I look forward to getting back into a routine now that I’m back home. And, speaking of routine, I actually got up this morning and did a session, Vinyasa Freedom For The Neck, that focused on the neck/thyroid, and nose area. Since yesterday I’ve been experimenting with the Plow Pose (featured above) and this morning I worked on it as well.
So this coming week’s focus will be on:
- daily yoga
- 64 ounces of water, daily
- no fast foods, home made meals all the way!
- enjoy some relaxing reading
- New Years Day hikes with the family!
