Yin Yoga Weekend!

Amazing two days learning so much about the human body and learning to find your new edges while still working within the limits your bones and physical make-up allow. Keeping the body fluid requires keeping your joints and ligaments mobile and flexible. That’s what Yin Yoga provides.

Your hips may not be tight- your bones and joints may legitimately be limiting your range of motion. However, you can still work to keep the natural mobility you have, even if it isn’t as wide or as open as you might like.

Your body is your body. It doesn’t need to look any other way than what it truly is to the best it can be. Yin yoga is about your body taking the shape as suits it, not bending your body into a pose to look like something or someone else.

Love your body, know it’s limitations and keep striving to make it the best it can be!

Bonus- a beautiful weekend at the beach!

On November 24, 2013, this number was 229.1.

5 months later and this was the number on my scale this morning. I’ve now lost 33.5 pounds. It’s taken a lot of work and discipline, but in some ways, it has been a very natural change. I still have more weight to lose, but I’m so much closer than I was!

Stay focused, even if you get off track. The results will come.

Getting ready for my Yin yoga workshop this weekend.  My goal is to keep my food intake pretty light and healthy.  Lots of water, firing up the NutriBullet for smoothies and exercise. 

I’ve stagnated in my weight loss the last few weeks, so my goal this week is to get things kickstarted again!

Saturday Yang and Easter Sunday Yin – Flywheel 75!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Saturday was yang-y: kettlebells, spin, late Easter dress shopping (yes, I still buy an Easter dress every year!)   Threw in a little bit of Yin yoga just to wrap up the day, but at that point I was so worn out I could have fallen asleep!

Today was sunrise service and then relaxed the rest of the day!  It’s all about balance right?

Flywheel is doing a 75 minute class this week and that sucker was already completely full within an hour!  I’m waitlisted so here’s hoping I’ll still get in.

I feel so blessed right now.  Sure, there is still so much more I want to do and see, but I’m also grateful for where I am right now this moment. 

Don’t ever get so focused on your goals that you forget to be happy about what you already have now!

Blessings to all!
