Okay, so it's been a while since I've updated my blog but here I am on day 22 of 30. Today me and Andrea went to an intro Ashtanga yoga class. They have this promotion 10 days 10 dollars which is pretty good considering the price for drop ins. My arms will be sore for sure tomorrow. Not use to doing so many downward dogs! Actually even my fingers hurt from pressing them down on the mat with my palms lol. But it was worth it! It was really great! The pose of the day for me is the Wide Leg Forward Bend. As seen in the photo on the left. I really enjoy the stretch that this pose offers. Here is a video to check it out. Click here.

Today I went to Moksha Yoga and it was very intense. I wasn't able to keep up and found myself in Child's Pose ( <--- the pic) more than a few times. But I am okay with that. The more I do yoga, the more I learn about it. Yoga isn't a competition and I don't need to keep up with anyone. I go at my own pace and I do my best. That's the beauty of yoga, anyone can do it. Child's Pose is a resting pose and was my savior today lol. When things get to be too much, short of breath or need a break, this is one of the resting poses that most suggest to go into. It's a pretty simple pose but here is a link if you'd like to see it. Click here.

Almost half way there! Anna came over again to do some yoga. This time we did Power Yoga by Bryan Kest. It was actually pretty good! We both enjoyed it. I enjoyed the exposure to new yoga postures. Anna's favorite was the Crescent Lunge with Twist which you can view here.
