It is now day 3 of the 30 day Yoga Commitment.
Since beginning I have tried to find variety in my classes but am also factoring in my main intention -BALANCE- as I plan my weekly class schedule. After all, planning is essential in order to keep me on track! I’m fortunate enough to have access to Yoga in all 4 corners of my own personal globe (the Vancouver lower-mainland) So depending on my mood, schedule and physical state I can find a suitable class, so long as I put some thought into it.
Yesterday was ALSO a CrossFit day and luckily a pretty mellow one at that. To match my Mellow Sunday vibe I headed into Vancouver and did a Yin Yoga class with one of my girlfriends, followed by a delicious Indian feast! (Que weekly Sunday ritual) Yin Yoga is a particular style of yoga focused on meditation and deep stretching of the connective tissues, or fascia. It is a perfect balance if you regularly practice “Yang” activities such as power yoga, endurance sports or anything high energy.
Speaking of high energy, today I am heading into Squamish to visit my special man-friend and try our luck at cross country skiing in the Callaghan Valley! Today’s menu will be a 45 minute Hot Yoga class, in downtown Vancouver where I can catch the bus up North afterwards. The 45 minute classes are offered Downtown to those who practice on their lunch break, that way they have enough time to get back to work- How awesome is that!?… Yoga for everyone, every (damn) day!
