This week, yoga literally makes me feel good! And don't you think yogarific is a great word to describe that??
As you all know, I've been making an effort to get into better shape (dieting, exercise, blah, blah, blah...). Well this week, I decided to incorporate yoga into my routine.
I love how relaxing it is at the time, and how the day after you do it, every muscle in your body is sore and you have no idea how it happened.
I love how it forces you to do a little meditation (as hokey as that may sound to many of you!).
And I love how it's just good for you, all around!
I've also been having lots of fun trying out different yoga videos. I have yet to find one that I really enjoy, so if any of you have recommendations, PLEASE. Help a sista out.
I've learned some new techniques that I have never seen in any of my yoga classes at the gym, such as "Breath of Fire." Sounds like a circus act, no? In actuality, it's a bit more like a panting dog. I can't really do it without laughing (and attracting unwanted attention from my puppies), so I had to nix that video.
Today's video ended with the words "Celebrate! Be great!" scrolling across the screen. Well, the sheer ridiculousness of that also made me laugh. Plus, I thought the yogi chick was slightly annoying. Her pigtails (yes, pigtails) were uneven. And her nipples were constantly at attention.
Two videos down, one more still to try...
In any case, I did enjoy getting back into this practice that I so rudely abandoned a few years ago. The long and short of it? Yoga just makes me feel good!
**In case you are confused, the woman in the picture is not, in fact, me. But after a few months of my mad yoga skills, you won't be able to tell us apart.
Happy Friday, everyone!
