This weekend I am going to add in some yoga. I’m pretty excited about it because I haven’t done yoga in almost nine months and I truly miss it! Friday night I am planning on going to candlelight hot yoga and Saturday I may go again if I’m up for it. Pose by pose, breath by breath, I’m going to quiet my mind and focus on just one thing during my practice, my dedication. I usually dedicate my practice to a loved one or for something I am trying to achieve or let go of, but this weekend it will selfishly be for myself. I intend to let my heart fully open and allow my body and soul to surrender to the heat. For me yoga practice isn’t just for fitness. Ultimately, it is emotional, spiritual, and a way of letting go of self, and hopefully the finding of something larger than ourselves.
I am sore from head to toe with the exception of my arms, that kicks in tomorrow. It was tough to do my abs tonight considering they are so tender today, but I got them done. There were only three ab exercises tonight so I suffered through.
