The Breath of Life

Dear readers, I began to toy with the idea of practicing yoga a couple of years ago. I’m ashamed to admit that it took me two years to begin breathing life into myself through this ancient practice because I was always making excuses.

Until I began  restorative yoga.

My three  go to positions  are soft fish (opens chest muscles and relaxes the upper back), supported frog (fosters a sense of safety and ease), and legs on a chair (helps venous drainage, improves circulation, and soothes cramped and swollen feet). The best part of them all is that they quiet and calm my mind. I’m forever grateful for finding an article Lori J Batcheller wrote and which I stumbled upon while waiting in my neurologist’s office, that featured these three positions.

I’m just going to say that “it’s addictive”!

I get up at five in the morning, when the house is quite and at peace and practice mindful and restorative yoga while listening to my favorite meditations on Spotify.

I tune my lungs and just let life flow inside me. Life can’t get better than this.

I’ve come to understand that there is no thing as big changes in our lifestyles if small and attainable intentions are not set in place.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember accept and love yourself just as you are. Hasta pronto!
