Finally got a restful night’s sleep, but then made the mistake of checking email before practice. Ended up online for 90 minutes before hitting the mat. So bad, so unhealthy. I am going to consciously work to unplug when I do not have to be online, so please do not be alarmed if you do not get an immediate response to an email or text. Need to stick to: wake up, yoga ... then life.
Really went deep into the Cardio class today. I was able to really meld breath and movement to get my heart rate up quite a bit.
The extended side angle/reverse warrior flow proved to be a doozy for my glutes once again!
Starting to feel my yoga muscles hugging the bones more snuggly, resulting in a tightening up (in a good way – no relation to flexibility) of the physique. Ahhhh, the vanity bonus of a power yoga practice.
Smoothie, errands, then work today.
Tip: I store my extra smoothie portions in spaghetti sauce jars!
