Any of you could have told me that.
I write a blog with YOGA in the title, for pete’s sake.
But I do! I like yoga best!
But let me back up…
couldn’t pay me
So I’ve been learning to love my new body after losing my yoga community and taking a hiatus from teaching and practicing. I made a list of things that I know I don’t enjoy about exercizing, even while feeling a desire for it in my life again.
I was doing this wonderful program called Power 90. I’m sure you’ve seen P90x infomercials on late night TV, and this is the easier first version of that. A very sensible workout plan based on alternating days of strength training and cardiovascular training.
The thing that I really liked about the program was that it’s whole philosophy is “do what you can, take a break when you need to, and just keep coming back.”
Pretty much what I always say when I’m teaching yoga, right? 🙂
no thanks 🙂
But it’s 30 days into the program and I’m already burnt out. Like I’ve said before, I busted my exercise fuse long ago, so even a sensible, low-key program like this becomes a spectre of dread in my brain if it’s something I don’t look forward to.
The only activity I’ve ever looked forward to: yoga.
When I first started practicing yoga consistently after burning out my exercise fuse, it was like a miracle. I never thought I would find something that made me feel so strong that I looked forward to.
So here I am again, back at the place any of you could have predicted to find me.
Back at yoga 🙂
no way Jose
I’ve got a little schedule worked out, piecing together classes from different studios that I think I’ll enjoy and that will feed my strength rather than sap it.
Today is the first day…I’ll let you know how it goes! (I’m super excited!)
