Twenty-four weeks later...um, I'm still here! I need not explain the life of a mom of an one and three year old and why I've been vacant from the blog for so long!
I am still an aspiring yoga teacher.
I am still doing at least one yoga practice a week (usually nap time).
I want to still learn more!
The practice is typically at home with the lovely Yoga with Adriene. Here's what I did today...
Yoga with Adriene's 30-day challenge is great! I've dabbled with about 1/4 of the videos and hope one day I'll do the 30-day challenge in its entirety. Until then, here's what went down today!
Hero pose - aka Virasana - was a beautiful ending to the practice. About 6 minutes in, my little yogalini joined me after his nap, and he was entertained for a while. The coolest thing about hero pose today was I glanced back over my shoulder to find him in the pose too! Those little chubby legs were perfectly positioned!
I haven't always been able to do hero pose. I recall earlier in my practice when I thought "are you kidding me!?! You want me to do what?!?!". But over time and with flexibility, I've transitioned to needing no blocks for support and letting my hips sink into the pose. It is a tremendous stretch for the quadriceps!
So here's to more posts in the coming weeks. I'm still on my journey (with a couple yogalinis along for the ride!),
Aspiring Yoga Teacher
I've practiced yoga since I was a pre-teen and have always found it to keep me centered. I will be a teacher one day and this is my journey to discover teaching and practice.
