My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17

(Yoga Or Nap?)

[ What To Do ]

I love using tarot, astrology, Doreen Virtue’s cards (Goddess Oracle Cards, Ascendent Master Deck), and even flipping coins to help make decisions.  The latter has even helped me win $2200 in cash and prizes on a game show once…

Before the flip. Before the win.
Before the flip. Before the win. #LMAD

I love my helpers.  I also know that if you’re like me and use similar tools to make decisions, you resonate with their answers because you already know what to do.

[ The Experience ]

I couldn’t fall asleep last night.  My mind raced with ideas for my business.  They were great, appreciated thoughts, just not what I had planned when I got in bed.  I think it must have taken me about 2 hours to fall asleep.

With about 5 or 6 hours of sleep, I got ready and got to 10 AM Kickboxing. Then I had a day at a craft faire (well, 2.5 hours), and had to get back home before heading to a dinner with some friends.

I was going to catch a 4PM Hatha Yoga class today before going to the dinner. I decided to take a “30 minute” nap, and l ended up sleeping 2 hours and 15 minutes, instead.

[ The Takeaway ]

I didn’t make yoga class today.  I chose to be generous to my Self, to rest and flow with what my body and mind needed.  I was all the more merrier for it.

My day was filled with creativity and yummy physical activity. My evening was filled with laughter, our friend’s two young boys’ antics and delicious vegetarian food.

Yet, when we returned home, I still had time to do some yoga, so I did a 10-minute practice that included meditation, simple, effective postures and some chanting for my chakras.  Afterward, I immersed in a cleansing bath and the day felt complete.

So, did I Yoga or Nap? I did both… I did yoga and I surely did nap.  I did both in ways that suited my body, heart, soul and mind, and on my own terms.  I am proud of myself for allowing myself to flow with life, rather than forcing it into what I thought it should be or what I should do.

As I end my active day, I feel rested and complete. Complete in my Being and complete in accomplishing another day of my commitment to my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 14 (Easy Does It)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 14

(Easy Does It)

yogachallenge

[ Me Day ]

Today I took almost a 3 hour nap.  This means I had no time to head to the Yoga Studio, even if it is only 2 minutes from my home.

Thursdays are my Me Days, or even just a day when I do something Self Care-centric for myself (what I call, “Me Time”).

Today I truly needed to do a Day for Me (even though everything Thursday it is schedule in). So I napped and did my yoga practice at home.

[ The Experience ]

My Yoga session went like this:

I kept my eyes closed. I did equal breathing. I tapped into the simplicity of life with my simple, intentional movements. Along with the napping I did today, I tapped into the essence of my youth, methinks, too.

[ The Takeaway ]

20 minutes is more than enough to do the body good, as far as yoga and meditation goes. It’s far better to be intentional for 20 minutes than it is to be spaced out and unfocused for an hour.  Then again, that’s all relative.

What I do know is that for me, “Easy Does It” was my mantra today, and easy did me well.

I call Thursdays my Gratitude Thursdays; though, I am grateful daily, through out the day.  I am grateful I have the lifestyle than can afford me time to care for my SELF.

For it is days like today I remember that life Flows gentler than we force it to…

[ Question For You ]

Do you take naps? How do you Take it Easy?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13 (Embrace The Uncomfortable)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13

(Embrace The Uncomfortable)

yogachallenge

[ Eyes Closed, Listening ]

I did myself a favor today and took a nap after I finished my workday.

Mind you, I’m no nap amateur… I am a regular, Nap Master! However, today’s nap got me to really listen to my heart and my body.  What I heard was, “do Yin“.

[ The Experience ]

Normally on Wednesdays I DJ a 3-hour set at a Bouldering Gym, and today I was off. I’ll be DJ’ing this week on Saturday, instead, for a big competition they are holding. So, I took advantage of the timing to visit the teacher I take Yoga Basics with, who also teaches Yin.

It was nice to get to see her style in this format.  Honestly, I enjoy her teaching style, I just feel I enjoy a different teacher for my Yin class. And that’s perfectly fine, ya know?

After all, yoga is all about YOU, first and foremost.

Still, I’m glad I went because she had me doing simple poses that were a lil’ more uncomfortable today.  I think it’s because my hamstrings were tighter because of Kickboxing yesterday.   Nonetheless, I kept my eyes closed the majority of the time (getting better at trusting) and I felt my way into deepened movement, so as to really open the connective tissues in my body.

[ The Takeaway ]

We tend to only do what feels right. I mean, who wouldn’t, ya know? It makes sense to do what feels good.  However “good” isn’t always the best thing for our growth.

Today the teacher encouraged us to “listen to [our] heart and body”, and embrace the uncomfortable as part of the process of healing.  Though some of the holds and twists were uncomfortable, I embraced them with presence and the fullness of Me. I breathed.

We also focused on our adrenals today, and our teacher reminded us that the best and most efficient way to get the adrenals back in balance is simply through our deep, relaxed breath.

It appears, all roads lead to the breath…

[ Question For You ]

When was the last time you
embraced the uncomfortable?
How did you grow from the experience?
