Today was an extremely challenging Vinyasa class..it was crowded beyond belief! Toes to head. Isn’t it amazing what a difference it makes from teacher to teacher? The practice, the energy, your fellow yogis, the intensity of the spiritual or athletic practice- it’s so varied. I still haven’t set my heart on my favorite teachers- I’m having a lot of fun jumping from class to class and trying all the different styles. Sometimes your body needs a restorative practice and other times it’s dying to be challenged, flowing and sweating.
My arms were still sore from yesterdays challenging class, so the arm & core heavy class was harder for me than usual (which actually isn’t saying much, since I have wimpy arms).
I also didn’t have as spiritual a practice today, since I was sweating, huffing and puffing my way through the poses which seemed never-ending. But it was extremely satisfying at the end, when I knew I just had an amazing work-out and had pushed my body (and my poor arms) to strengthen, tone and my practice to evolve.
Lunch: 1 vegan veggie patty with a kale & cucumbers salad, roast vegetables, hummus & salsa.
Snacks: 1 1/2 servings of rice crackers & 1 pear
Off to enjoy the day!
