I have to admit, it's been a while since I've been on my mat.
Why, you ask?
- We are moving! To South Carolina! I've been really busy cleaning the house, going through everything so that it was presentable for our first open house yesterday. Ugh.
- I started taking Aikido. I go two nights a week, cutting out opportunities for yoga classes. But it's really fun! And challenging... to say the least...
- I am a mom. My son is 11 months old. Ahhh, remember the days when I could just leave the house and do whatever, whenever? Yea, me neither.
Well, last night I made sure to make it to a yoga class. I went to a lovely Yin/Restorative class with Karen at Livonia Yoga Center. Yin Yoga is a slower practice that aims to stretch connective tissues instead of just muscle tissue. It was a super relaxing, mellow practice, just right for a Sunday night. If you haven't tried Yin yoga before, I suggest you do.
Of course, if I'm totally honest with myself, I could practice right here in my own home. So could you. But do you? I would love to hear how you stay motivated on your own. When and how do you find time to practice at home? Do you use DVDs? Do you have a favorite CD to listen to?
Wah! is one of my favorites:
Hope you find your way back to your mat if you're off. If you're on, keep it up! And if you don't have a mat.... well, what are you waiting for?!!
