I know, you've been worried since I posted about my 40 days of yoga challenge and then never mentioned it again. Sorry.
So, let's talk about it. Did I do yoga every day for 40 days? No. Did I come close? Er....close-ish.
Did I enjoy myself? Yes. Do I feel better? Some days I do.
I practiced at home, and I started going back to my studio at the end of August.
The first 3 times I went were emotionally very difficult - the first time I was
shaking and nearly crying from being so panicked about returning.
And nothing bad happened - I didn't hurt or embarrass myself, no one laughed or told me to get out. After a few "easy" classes I returned to my regular classes from the Spring.
The sky didn't fall!
I am obviously well out of practice, my sore shoulder makes some of the moves
difficult/impossible, and my anxiety likes to pop up each class and remind
me how much I suck and that no one likes me,
but I'm doing it. I'M DOING IT.
I'm practicing pretty much daily now at home, and taking at least 2 classes a week.
I've been reading a lot online, trying to establish a home routine, but so far I've just been doing what feels good, and what I can sneak in in the mornings before work or the kids getting up.
If you're reading this and you have any yoga books, websites,
pose or any recommendations, drop me a line!
