Someone told me years ago that practicing yoga would benefit not only my mind but my body and balance, too. I put yoga to the test a few weeks ago when I did the unthinkable (walking up an incline with platform shoes on) and lost my balance. If it were not for my quick thinking I might have broken a bone a hip an arm or fractured my pelvis. Fortunately I did none of those and ended up with a very sore bottom.
Because of this,I did very little exercise and found my self lethargic and unmotivated. Yesterday I decided I would get dressed for the 10 a.m. Yoga class and hoped I would be able to do some of the poses without too much discomfort or pain. It is amazing how our bodies do remember! And with the help of a folded blanket and a cushion for my knees I was able to do all the poses except for the boat. Anne (my instructor decided that was not a move for someone in my condition) perhaps when my butt healed internally. As I relaxed into the last pose I could feel the energy return to my body and my mind was calm and happy.
I think Yoga belongs in everyone’s life young and old as it is the WD-40 for our limbs-balance stamina and mental clarity. Get your yoga moment today!
