This morning for my yoga practice, I decided to go with what I was feeling.
I wanted to be free from any computers, videos, strangers voices. I wanted to do an easy 20 minutes of yoga on my own!
So I lit some candles, turned off the overhead light and turned on the Meditation channel (music) on my digital cable box. I also set my cell phone alarm for 20 minutes ahead so that I wouldn’t fall asleep during Shavasana and be late for work 😉
I started out on the floor and did several seated poses before coming up to downward facing dog. I stayed in each pose for a few breaths, trying to decide where I was going to go next while I was taking the time to breath in each one. It worked pretty well but toward the end I sort of lost my train of thought.
When I was done, I felt like I had accomplished my task: feeling relaxed and invigorated at the same time. My flow was mostly stretching and not much strength since I did a weights workout yesterday. I also incorporated my personal favorite poses – half pigeon, tree pose (pictured below) and supta baddha konasana.
I look forward to learning more from her and developing my own flow, becoming less reliant on audio/video programs. Namaste.
