Day 15-18: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

Forgive me once again for not writing. Most of the poems you see are scheduled weeks in advanced and I am under a huge project that could change my life. Each session that I did lasted from 20-30 minutes. I incorporated swift flow movements then repeated them very slowly to get the full effect. Cobra…

Day 13: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

Another practice complete and another tired Joy at your service. I have been so tired lately; the fatigue is slowly killing me, I guess. Today was another 23-minute practice with three minutes in the last pose, where I just laid still and breathe. I feel as though today’s practice was heavy on the arms, I…

Day 12: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

So Day 12 is a bit late, but for a very good reason: I am a lazy potato in need of food. Just Kidding. I did today’s practice a bit late due to some pain and overall fatigue. It has been a relaxing weekend, but due to the weather acting up, I haven’t been feeling…

Day 11: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

Yesterday was a rough day and the day before, I started to write the post but only got so far. Now it is a new day and I am a cranky duckling. I am two posts behind and plenty of poetry that I should have written. I got hit with a depressive episode and I…

Day 10: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

Oh my goodness! It is the 10th day and I am so happy. I may or may not have tried a harder session and I may or may not have done the lizard pose. Regardless of what happened, my hips are currently on fire and I am sweating. I tried to do a hip extension…

Day 9: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

WOOHOO!! I made it to the ninth day. I am so proud of myself right now. Today, rather than stretch beyond the bounds of physics, I decided to do a small meditation session followed by light stretching. I spent 20 minutes trying to find peace of mind and hearing my stomach accuse me of treason,…

Day 8: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

I missed a few days of yoga due to just being too darn sick to do anything. My pain has gone down and my motivation is back so here I am continuing where I left off. I contemplated about starting over, but I eventually decided that life offers a few re-dos and I was not…

Day 7: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

Today, I have reached a new plane of reality. Lol, that was a bad joke. I am starting to gain muscle and may I just say that it is refreshing. I was in a lot of pain today, so I took the easy route and did a stretching and meditation. 15 minutes of meditation and…

Day 6: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

The lizard pose strikes again! This time I was ready to stretch my nether regions. My hips took the burn of the stretch and afterward I did have to rest them for a bit but it was better than before. Today was an 18-minute practice and it had a lot of stretching and breathing. I…
