#turnthelensonself – 2

The prompt today was strong. After two months of feeling poorly, Strong is the last word I would use to describe myself. But today there were blue skies and I didn’t spend so much time coughing so I decided to hit the mat while dinner was cooking. I chose a yoga video from Adriene knowing that Pilates would knock me back for the evening. What I needed was some deep breathing and stretching. And there is nothing better than child’s pose when you need to relax. This practice gives me hope.

  1. hitting the mat in ANY way is as good for your mind as your body – hope you body catches up soon!

  2. I’ve been thinking of you and praying you are healing quickly! Seems that you are seeing relief. I miss doing yoga but the gym sessions are keeping me busy and I see great progress!

  3. Ahhhhh. Yoga always makes me feel strong . . . because my body is doing things that surprise me! And that makes me feel strong. 🙂 So glad you’re feeling a bit more “blue-sky.” XO

  4. I love my yoga practices…and I love that I was able to do a practice AND meditate yesterday in the middle of the morning – thanks to a snow day! Hope you are feeling better.

  5. Child’s pose is possibly my all-time favorite…the release, the gentle stretching of the upper body, the quiet strength of the pose.
    I’m so glad you were able to move your body in this way, even with not feeling well. (and do get better, quick!)
