My oldest daughter gave me the nicest set of yoga DVDs for Christmas a year ago. There are three individual DVDs with lots and lots of routines on each one. There is one for beginners like me. I've mostly talked about using them and actually done very little with them. Sad, I know.
I have attended four yoga classes and that helped me not to be quite as timid about trying it. Now, I'm going to challenge myself to work on doing all of these routines in the next few months. This morning I did the first two routines which were 15 minutes each.
I know that being more flexible is a good thing but I also think that calming a racing mind is almost as good. This morning I kept getting distracted by myself but the person talking on the DVD would encourage me to concentrate on my pose and on my breathing. I felt really good after the 30 minutes.
The sun is still hiding from us. They say there may be a few snow flurries tonight but no accumulation. We can hope they are right.
As an aside, I've had the best eye day today that I've had in months. I hope it lasts.
