7 days of Yoga – Day 1

Good Morning Friends,

Today is Day 1 of putting Yoga first.

I have practiced yoga for years at home and at a studio but lately I put it on the back burner. I usually do my weight training or cardio in the morning and do yoga later in the day if I have time but I haven’t been getting it accomplished lately. Needless to say, my hips are tight and I have a nagging tight hamstring that will not ease up so I’m focusing all my energy on yoga this week.

I will put my yoga before my other workouts even if it means I take a few days off. My super tight hamstring is a sign a need more yoga. My body usually lets me know 😀

I enjoy taking classes at my local yoga studio but most of the time I do it at home. It saves me time and $. I have a collection of DVDs and a lot of favorites but my absolute favorite is Tamal Dodge. He’s the only one I always coming back to.Tamal’s instruction is always so clear, calm and easy to follow. I have all three of his DVDs but this one is my favorite. “Intro to Yoga”

There are two programs: Fundamentals and Intermediate. I do “fundamentals” most because I feel it covers everything and provides a balance of challenge and relaxation. My body thanks me after.

I will be back to check in and share my progress over the next 7 days.

Namaste.

Marlene
