My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 21 (Experiential Learning Heals)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 21

(Experiential Learning Heals)

yogachallenge

[ Go Practice ]

When I got into my yoga practice almost a month ago, the main goal was simply this:

Do Yoga Everyday for 30 Days.  

Most of my first days were spent learning in the classroom, so to speak: A Yin Class here, a Hatha Class there, a morning Kundalini class, just for fun…

After a while, I noticed that to meet my goal of doing yoga everyday for 30 days while working with my busy schedule, I had to be OK with being flexible… and being OK to go practice at-home, by myself.

And that would make sense, because ultimately, yoga is your practice.  More over, yoga is breathing (and all the poses and such are bonuses in an already abundant Care Package from the Universe).  So, even though I have an unlimited yoga pass, there was bound to be a time when I’d have to go practice by myself, for myself.

[ The Experience ]

I bet you probably suspected I was going to say the following statement.  Today, my practice was spent at-home instead of heading to a Yoga Basics class that will start in about half an hour.

Well, you probably guessed part of the sentence, at least.

As a motivated entrepreneur, I have deadlines and a focus to tend to. In order to manage my work life with my self care practice, I have to meet myself where I am, first and foremost to move forward.

I learned earlier this year that in a study by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, it was scientifically proven that experiential education/learning yields more successful results that traditional classroom methods.  I love science, I love learning, and I love results, and the way we learn in Yoga class is very Experiential.  Because, as pretty much all of my teachers have said this Challenge, “this is your practice.”

[ The Takeaway ]

Before I began my practice tonight, my body was tight and ached.

As I did movements and breath work that served me, and that I had learned over the past 21 days, I filled with lightness.

At the end of my practice, my aches were gone, dissipated in my breath.

[ Question For You ]

Do you allow yourself flexibility when in pursuit of goals?

My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 2 (Cat Nap)


My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 2

(Cat Nap)

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.19.59 PM

  [ The Experience ]

96 days ago, I challenged myself to meditate and chant for 40 consecutive days.  

It’s Day 2 of this 10 Day Meditation Challenge, and I am nearly to my 100th consecutive day of chanting and meditation.  I LOVE IT! It’s really nice to go inward.

Especially after a cat nap.

I took a lovely 45 minute rest and woke up, put on my headphones and turned on my Headspace App.  Today was better, since Andy seemed to talk less.  Funny thing happened: as I sat on the bed cross-legged in Easy Pose, the cat I am fostering starts to scratch herself on my fingers, and then found her way into my lap to rest as I sat in zen.

I took a cat nap, and then the cat napped on me!

[ My thoughts about Headspace ]

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.21.11 PM I think Headspace is a great and easy-to-use platform.  I love how I can track my progress and be a part of a larger community of simultaneous meditators. I also love that you can invite others to participate with you…

If you are reading this and want to join the challenge, add me to your Headspace App: “coachterag@gmail.com”. 

[ The Takeaway ]

At the end of the session, the guide, Andy, asked how we felt before and after the meditation.  I chuckled, because before I meditated, I felt super relaxed a la nap status. Afterward, I felt rejuvenated for a night of leading a group session, kickboxing and practicing yoga for my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

All in all, everything is zen… 🙂

[ Question For You ]

Do you meditate? If so, what are the benefits you have seen for yourself? If not, does an App like Headspace make it easier to start?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

Gratitude: 100 Reasons for My 100th Post


Gratitude: 100 Reasons for My 100th Post
Screen shot 2014-11-13 at 11.48.52 AM

I love Gratitude. I love to hear what other people are grateful for in this Journey of Life. I stumbled upon an inspiring read that I wanted to share with you in the hopes that at least one of the reasons will help you remember that Life is, indeed, a place filled with joy. Check out “Gratitude: 100 Reasons for My 100th Post“!

It is here. It is being written. My one hundredth post! Last time I had a count of anything one hundred was in kindergarten. I marked it being one hundred days of school by gluing one hundred pieces of string onto poster board, all perfectly cut and glued evenly and uniform (it was my first demonstration of my perfectionism). But this one hundred holds so much more significance than that one. This one hundred marks more than a number of days gone by. It represents struggle, triumph, hope, sadness, happiness, lessons, insights, challenges, experiences, and blessings.
