I started to get into a routine where I would wake up at 5:45am drive to the studio for the 6:30am class(this is how much I loved the instructor that taught the early morning classes because man am I not a morning person) the first 10 mins of the class I am usually pretty sleepy and it takes me awhile to really get into it. By the time I am down I am revitalized, energized and ready to start my day. Its only 7:30 so I have plenty of time. I shower and get ready for work then walk across the parking lot to the starbucks for a coffee.
Having this routine gave me time in the morning to slowly wake myself up and prepare for the day. To sip my coffee while reading a book and really enjoy myself instead of rushing around the house frantically trying to get ready for work because once again I had slept in.
I would go 6 times a week usually and even completed a 30 day challenge.
Since I have been travelling however I have become distracted from my practice. I was so excited to be touring around and exploring new places that I completely forgot how important this morning routine was for me. There is also the fact that once we came to Australia we had such a laid back lifestyle that I never really felt like working out or taking on the task of finding a studio that was a great as my previous one.
I am happy to say that I have become aware of how much I have missed doing yoga on a daily basis and am slowly getting back into it bit by bit. I have found some wonderful videos online and although it is not the same as the hot studio or the atmosphere my body thanks me for resuming.
This video is something I found on a friends Facebook page a long time ago but I love to watch it. It is something to aspire to. The amount of strength it takes to be able to do these moves is amazing and I hope one day to be able to complete this.
P.S thank you so much for the kind words on the previous post. I feel much better now and have worked everything out with myself. I think everyone goes through this and I need to remind myself to step back and take a breathe once in awhile.
