Always Yoga

It’s yoga day.

Super low lunges made my legs oh so sore, but it’s definitely worth it. I’ve never felt such sweet relief just from stretching my muscles. The soreness subsided as I went through 40 minutes of the workout. I was constantly interrupted so I wasn’t able to fully concentrate on the program but it’s at least something.

Yoga makes me practice patience as well as working out my body since I have to focus on breathing and trying to slow down my pace. I always want to rush through the exercises but the benefit of yoga is in those long pauses. The longer you’re in a position, the more your body gets used to it and adapts. I notice how my muscles move as I exit one position and settle into another. It makes me more aware of my body and I have better control over it.

Another day down.
