Jan was filled with two things fitness: cycling and yoga. I've given up on the trainer for now and we're back to riding outside, at least for long rides on the weekend. We have 6 more training weeks until the half-century. That's where my training focus happens to be.
But what I feel like sharing today is my yoga journey. I've had an on and off relationship with yoga over the years. I've usually gone into it thinking that I don't like it and am not good at it, and end up fulfilling that destiny. Recently something has changed. I feel like I'm truly embracing it, and the result is that I'm starting to enjoy it and see improvement in strength and flexibility. Surprisingly, I've been doing yoga daily for 20+ min and sometimes more (longer or a second session) for the past month.
The biggest obstacle right now is that I am attempting yoga at home with dogs. For some reason, they can't stay away when the mat come out. Some photos of my escapades:
|Downward Facing Dog (with dogs)|
|Every morning it's the same, the dogs want to be on the mat!|
|Sunbird Bow in a rare uninterrupted session. Dogs happened to be outside.|
|Swan Pose (with dogs)|
|Cat Pose (with dogs)|
Tell me about your experiences with home yoga practice. Anyone else accompanied by dogs/cats/kids?
