Even with the best intentions, sometimes plans don’t go as expected. Yesterday I promised myself that I’d do a long, relaxing yoga video in my living room in the cool air conditioning, but a normal Friday shift turned into an 11-hour shift and I was more than exhausted once I finally got back to my house. I zoned out and scrolled through Twitter until Mark got home, and then I actually peeled myself off the couch to go to the gym. SO — tonight’s yoga practice was another gym one.
30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day Ten
Since I was at the gym, I added some extra squats and crunches and leg lefts between my poses. Working such a long day on my feet, I made sure to really focus on my hip flexors, too. Pigeon pose was a champ tonight, as well as plenty of seated forward folds. Doing yoga at the gym definitely is a practice for staying mentally focused instead of self-conscious about the people around me.
- Ready for the weekend!
- I taught dance for three years, so as I started stretching, I kind of just fell into my normal routine that I lead for stretch at the beginning of every class. It felt great.
Namaste and see you tomorrow!
