Although I am excited the weekend is here, this means that our perfect vacation has to end. Major sad face.
It was full of funny, wonderful, happy, and exhilarating moments, however–and I am grateful I got to share them with fabulous family members!
On the final day of our vacation I did some yoga, and oh how wonderful it was!
Yoga Is Calming!
Who knew that yoga was so calming, relaxing, and empowering? I felt so much better after practicing for about a half hour. My muscles felt stretched and lengthened, my breathing deeper, and my mind calmer. I felt ready to tackle the day of, um, well, swimming, boating, and chilling.
Yes, an irony, I know. But I have also felt the wonderful calming stretch of yoga on days that are not so, well, vacation-esque 😉
I really have come to love triangle pose, down dog, and tree pose. I used to hate down dog (I used to ‘hate’ a lot of things I guess, like blueberries!), but I think it is because I was doing it incorrectly and was feeling it in my wrist joints (major wrong place) instead of in my hamstrings (a muscle group, where it should be felt and/or stretched).
Have a great weekend!
Have YOU tried yoga at the beach?? What is YOUR current favorite yoga pose??
