That is my meaning for YOGA (your own great athleticism); and below is what the word actually means:
- a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.
I am back in with attending Yoga classes. I just started it up last week. I am practicing the art of simple short meditations morning and night to keep the tension and headaches under control.
- my neck is producing long days of headaches; I am holding all emotions there from life, grief, car accident, etc.
- the gym sessions are only once a month now and yoga is more care and strength training for my feet so I must include this practice.
- I am working on stability at the gym and I now notice that the last 2 Yoga sessions will really push that balance practice up several notches.
- I am finding that “not one more thing”? is getting to me as several things seem to land on the same week or day and I need to practice breathing through those times. That is life and I bring my tension and worries up to my neck and shelve them there.
I attended the Slow Flow Yoga session last night and it was exactly what I needed and I was able to do a lot of the movements and postures, except the ones that require balance. No surprise there.
It’s a good practice these yoga postures and I will remember to keep yoga going and not quit on it.
