Gratitude, Day 7

This morning, I am grateful that I nearly slept through the night; got off my butt to do my daily yoga practice; and booked all of the arrangements in advance of my trip to Ireland next week. I also stayed under 2000 calories yesterday; ate... Read more

Today I am grateful that I'm packed and ready for what is sure to be an adventure beginning tomorrow at 3:30 AM. I am grateful that I just took the time to do my daily yoga routine, especially since it is very unlikely I will be able to do it to... Read more

This is it: the last of my Daily Yoga Practice blog entries. I feel secure enough in my routine to shift the focus of my writing to gratitude for the next month or so, as I prepare to travel for an extended spell. My poses today were solid ... Read more

Day 24 of My Daily Yoga Practice - Relief

Saturday, June 27, 2015      0 comments

A rare nighttime check-in to say that my routine went better this morning. I was right: the friction of fabric on top of my skinned and bandaged knee was causing the bulk of the irritation and discomfort. Luckily, it's been 80 degrees here the p... Read more

Day 23 of My Daily Yoga Practice - Pain

Thursday, June 25, 2015      0 comments

My right knee hurts from the tumble I took on Sunday. I hope this means that the major scrape is healing. The pain of putting weight on it this morning made my routine less than satisfying. I couldn't do the cat, the cow, or child's pose properl... Read more

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      0 comments

I added two new moves to my daily yoga practice this morning: the Bridge and some alternating bent-leg/straight-leg floor stretches. Well, I actually added a third, too - Dead Man's Pose - as a restful and grounding way of finishing off my routi... Read more
