I'm really new to yoga. I mean I have dabbled back in the day. I had a yoga dvd I would pop in from time to time. I took a Pilates class once that our city offered in the city pamphlet. Pilates seemed similar to yoga. Then there was the summer Abbie spent in Arkansas and I woke up nearly every morning and started my day with Youtube "yoga with adriene" But I took my first official class last month. It's been something I've been interstested in for years and years but have never committed to a true practice. I'm ending 2017 with this yoga challenge, a pose a day just to keep me thinking about it. Now some of the poses will be impossible for me to do and I'm not being negative, I'm being realistic. Some of the poses are INSANE. However I'm giving it my very best shot knowing that there is plenty of room for improvement and correction. My heart is in it, I'm excited to do more yoga in 2018. I suppose it's a goal I have set for myself in 2018. It will be so fun. It's like the best kind of exercise I have found for ME. I have tried so many different types and yoga fits my person:)
I'm so very blessed that my guy will take my picture in a public place without batting an eye, like it's normal business you know? He is the BEST. All my family will humor me and click a picture whenever I ask for help. It's awesome to have all their support in whatever I decide to do. They just go with it. So open to my little whims. Like the face down phase I went through, or my bench Mondays I still like to do.
I'm hoping next year in December if I take the challenge again, I will see improvement, strength, flexibility and maybe even do some of those INSANE poses I can't do at this moment.
AND maybe next year some of you out there might join me in this yoga goal and we can get strong and flexible, peaceful, calm and healthy together. Think about it? Consider it? Patience and Practice and like my friend in the PNW reminds me of her Mantra from last year that changed her life quite a lot. Her mantra was "a little a lot" I LOVE it and I'm adopting it. I've always been an all or nothing kind of gal. If it's not perfect I'm a big fat quitter. I plan to change that too this next year. I don't have to be perfect, not even close. Sure takes the pressure off.
