Namaste is my new favorite word. All the good in me salutes all the good in you.
I’ve always enjoyed Yoga. There was a twice weekly morning class in my gym which I attended religiously whenever pesky interferences like school didn’t get in the way. Part of my gap year plan included returning to regualr Yoga practice. But then our teacher got pregnant. So I had to find a new source of inner peace.
Enter: iTunes podcasts. I don’t have to keep turning my head towards a video screen and I can close my eyes as I move. Its no replacement for a real class but I can do it anytime of the day that pleases me. And for a little while after each session, my mind silences. And even if its only 5 minutes, I relish that silence as one of the high points of my day.
I’m trying to make yoga a daily thing. There are a few reasons, the first being that until my new job starts, I have a lot of time on my hands. On top of this, I have to stop running for the week thanks to my freshly banjaxxed knee. I am hoping yoga will help my knee (strained) and my mind (a similar state) all in one swift movement of a downward dog.
Have a nice day.
