30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 25

Today I’m thankful for a different perspective in my yoga practice. I’ve been away from it for a bit, and since I’ve had a few days off, I have been able to attend 2 classes in as many days.

The class I usually go to (and love) is on Sundays, but since yesterday was Monday and today is Tuesday, time of day dictated my class choice.

I attended a community flow class yesterday which reminded me how AWESOME yoga is at 1) recognizing how many muscles I don’t use regularly but should be and 2) making me feel good mentally at the same time as giving my muscles a run for their money.

Today, I went to the studio right after I dropped the little monkey off at school. I wanted to get my exercise in early as I had a lot of book business and bloggy business to attend to today. The class was entitled Breathe & Stretch, but I think “Tune-Up” would have been a more apt title. It was a smaller class, and I got a lot of feedback on my positioning.  Most times we were hardly moving, but I’ll be damned – if I wasn’t doing deep breathing through some of those poses, I would have keeled over! Intense, but great.

I’m sure I’ll be sore tomorrow (I was already sore from yesterday’s class today), but I am so grateful for the feedback, from my body and from my teachers.

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...
