Home Practice #3

Ok so I skipped a day, I'm entitled! :) I don't expect to practice every single day for the rest of my life. Baby steps. Today I got on the mat again and followed another YJ Home Practice which turns out, I didn't follow much at all. I went off the page in a completely different direction and that's ok. The practice was Iyengar based which consisted the use to props, blankets, chairs and I didn't want to go there so I did variations of the poses. I was feeling pretty solid so I did a series of inversions and standing poses like Warrior 3 and Standing Split. It felt wonderful and I was so refreshed after my meditation.

As great it is developing a home practicing and kind of finding my way, I do miss the community feeling a classroom environment. There is a YogaWorks one town over that I think I will go check out next week. I would love to at least go to one or two classes a week for the instruction and then practice at home and work on my meditation more.

On the subject of home practices, Gaiam has a Yoga Club 12 Week Home Practice.

Good for you for getting to the mat today! This was also a yoga day for me. Yay, us! I took the summer off from classes, but I think I will start by in the fall.....
