Week 2 of this yoga thing…

I have just finished week two of my 30days of yoga challenge, and it is going well so far!

I am starting to notice tiny differences, tiny improvements I should say πŸ™‚ a lot of them are indefinable and boil down to feeling better whilst holding or moving between poses πŸ˜€

I am not very good at balancing, but my arms are slightly twistier!

This pose is awesome for your hips...even if you feel like you are falling over!

The wrist twisting thing is exactly what I need to fix my inflexible wrists (apparently this will help with my front squat!)

Day 9 was very twisty, which is good for me even if I am not very good at it!

This squat is nearly impossible if you are me!!

Things I have learned so far:

  • If you do yoga in socks you slip inside them and you nearly faceplant the yoga mat!
  • Yogic squats are really really hard!!
  • I can now sit cross-legged without wanting to cry…it is still not my comfy seated position of choice, but there is improvement!
  • My heels are closer to the floor in downward facign dog than they were…slightly…and this might be due to the sports massage i had on my calves…
  • I actually look forward to this yog-ing now
  • this thing is worth doing!
  • Yoga is hard on your shoulders

PS…if you are looking at the number up there and thinking I am behind a day well, I am I missed Saturday due to extreme falling asleep…

I did two lots on Sunday to make up for it…one of them was an actual yoga class run by Matt my trainer so it doesn’t have a number or pictures…

yep…I even did yoga in public!!

    The yoga looks to be coming along great! And what is that I spy there – another pair of awesome socks!! I took a moment to admire them, they are super. Good news about the bendyness. I am incredibly un-bendy so it is a quality I admire in others.

  2. NancyTex says :

    I am amazed (but not surprised because I know how committed you are) to see that you are ACTUALLY doing yoga every day! I tell you, you are most definitely motivating me to do it too. And I will – just as soon as the madness at work settles down a bit. πŸ™‚
