Yoga

When I was younger, I was really buff. Then after years of throwing myself into my work, failed attempts at motherhood, and various other binge eating habits, I lost it all. Now in my never ending quest to get myself back in shape, I think want to return to something I used to do a long time ago. Yoga.

Yoga really has a way of getting yourself in tune with your body. I remember doing so many things before that I can even dream about now. I was really flexible and my joings didn’t hurt one bit. Now, well, let’s not even go there.

I think with the help of a few yoga sessions a week, I will at least regain some of my flexibility and maybe even lose a few pounds along the way. So if anyone would like to join me, I have put a video below for all of us beginners who need a way to feel good about themselves and their bodies. Yoga is probably one of the least strenuous ways to tone up the areas that need toning, and regain the flexibility that you once had. It also helps to center yourself and bring calm to a pretty hectic life.

I hope you will all join me as I travel along this journey. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a bit of calm in my life!

Wishing you moments of great yoga!

  • My daughter loves to do yoga, but she is 11 and doesn't have a body that endured 2 births and 3 pregnancies. The old gray mare ain't what she used to be if you know what I mean and I usually end up falling over trying to keep my balance. If I can cheat and hold on to a chair, I am good. LOL
    Great post Susan!

  • Yoga really is phenomenal. I used to make time for it, but somehow lately have only been doing kid yoga with the little ones. Not at all the same. ;O)

  • I'm stopping by from the A-Z challenge list to meet and greet a few new friends before the challenge ends. I'm a new follower.
    Namaste πŸ™‚

    Yoga is a good thing. It is not easy though. I find it to be exhausting and usually leaves me sore. Of course, I don't do it regularly and that would make a difference! The stretching part is good. β™₯

  • I love yoga too. I've done it off and on and always found it helped me lose weight so I've started again about a week ago and already I feel so good. Thanks for sharing the video. I'll be trying out some of those exercises. Happy yoga-ing.

  • Yoga should be mandatory. the whole world is ready for a bit of calm but we just don't have the time. πŸ™‚

  • Never done any yoga, and don't think my arthritic hips could cope with it! I can't even kneel these days so I couldn't do any of those exercises in the video!

  • I have tried Yoga and my non-coordination really becomes an issue. Good luck with your journey – look forward to hearing how it proceeds!

  • I love certain yoga poses…but others I don't care for. I do love exercise of all forms!!

    Cheers, Jenn
