After work today, I went to yoga. I love this class. It’s only an hour long, it’s a flow yoga so it never gets boring and you never stop moving, and it really forces me to focus on stretching. I need to regain my flexibility. And I did great tonight!

Nope, I didn’t do great on this pose…

or this pose…

or even this pose…

but, I did great because I showed up! In yoga, you learn to be more open and compassionate towards yourself. Tonight, the first few minutes my bones cracked, then my ligaments and tendons creaked, and then later I was sleepy and distracted. However, I’m proud I showed up and tried. At the beginning of six months of training that’s all I can hope for. Later on when my practice becomes more regular, I’ll push my poses and try new things.

In the meantime, I may need to look up another yoga class on the schedule. These bones feel a little older and tighter than I remembered. 😉
