Day 19-24: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

Hello beautiful people. I am back once more. I have decided to do this format rather than updating everyday. My sessions have become 23 minutes with the last three minutes spent meditating or just trying not to fall asleep on the mat. I promise you that I like yoga much more than I thought I…

Day 14: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

I know this post is late, forgive me? Yesterday was just so stressful, we are in the process of buying our first house and my goodness the amount of paperwork that we have to go through is astounding. So rather than be stressed out today I decided to do some meditation and stretching. You probably…

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 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…

Day 5: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

My hips, inner thighs, and crotch hates me and for a very good reason too. I have never in my life stretched my crotch this much before. The pigeon pose has a unique power of stretching all that is good and holy about my body. This was a 15-minute session with a lot of slow…

Day 4: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

Wow! I actually made it to day four. This is amazing. My writing has not improved so far but I did put out a poem today that I thought was okay. I have really loved the meditation at the end of the session. I think I can stretch a little better today. I had a…
