90 Day Yoga Challenge: Days 6 and 7

One week into this challenge and I'm feeling good. Today I woke up feeling not so good. My cramps were horrible, I was tired. But some quality time on the mat set me straight. I don't mean to sound so blasé about it, but it's the truth. The mat always has my back, and I become a better person to be around when I make myself and my yoga practice a priority.


It is also helping me think more clearly. I love the phrase, "Create a life you don't want to escape from." My daily yoga practice is getting me closer and closer to that goal. I have a lot to be grateful for: a supportive family and husband, good friends around the world, a vision, and an adequate amount of talent to help turn my dreams into reality. I am also restless. Like Alexander Hamilton (a fellow Capricorn), I will never be satisfied. So knowing this about myself allows some grace to enter to my life.


What is your yoga practice teaching you about yourself?

Yes! Day 7! I was a little sore in my back today so I did work on my neck, arms, back and hips. And breathing. I feel so much better. It's a hot one outside today so I'll head outside to keep my muscles stretched and mow the lawn (with the rider of course).

Day 6 and I tried to do some solo practice time (no videos playing) with what I've learned so far. I did not set a timer, but did a clock check before I started and again at the end to know how long I practiced. I went a little longer than the minimum time I planned, which was a positive step for me. I won't always be able to do completely free timed practice, but when I can, I want to! I go back to work next week and I'll need timed practice if I want to do it before work.

I am so happy to see all the other ladies getting in some yoga time whenever possible! It's going…

I love doing a quiet, solo practice - it really puts me in touch with what my body needs and how I'm feeling in the moment. I don't feel pressured to "keep up" with anyone else. It's truly "me" time!

Day 5 was about trusting myself that I have the strength to truly build my practice. Look at that! I'm calling it "my practice"! I'm starting to watch more videos outside of "practice time" to understand more about yoga. That is how I realized that saying the term "my practice" actually meant your own personal yoga 🧘‍♀️ practice that you create for YOURSELF. I always thought that term was for a certified instructor's sessions that the average person gets to watch and join in on. My practice is slow process and I'm in no rush. I want to make it about feeling better, being more self aware, feeling stronger, and finding peace in my everyday. It can be what …

I couldn't love this more! That's exactly what yoga is about (and anyone trying to tell you anything different is trying to sell you something). I'm so glad you're finding the benefits of slowing down and building strength. Go Jen Go!!!
