Slowing down doesn’t mean doing less, it means experiencing more: Gratefulness project day 13

I like the way the universe has orchestrated my life to move more slowly, especially recently. Obviously a lesson I must learn. Slowing down (hence the yoga in my life!). I tend to jump ahead when I would be better off taking my time. I suppose I’ve always been impatient. Likely a way to fill …

I found yoga, or maybe yoga found me: Gratefulness project day 12

Yoga, yoga, yoga. I’m beginning to actually like it. When I first tried it (several months ago), I found it immensely frustrating. Moving slowly. Trying to breathe evenly. Balancing.

Yoga helps me find my soul: Gratefulness project day 8

I went to yoga yesterday. I’ve been having trouble with sciatica down my right side and I figured yoga would help, and it did. I haven’t been a big fan of yoga. I like to move and sweat and suffer. Not stay still and hold a pose and suffer. (How very Type A of me!) …
