30 Days of Yoga

Divine

I'm in a much better mood today, Dear Reader, and I think it's in large part due to my littlest kitty crawling into my lap and giving me kitty kisses. Rutherford's kisses are bizarre, though. He likes to have his chin scratched (wait for it, it gets weird) as he shoves his snout into your… Continue reading Divine

30 Days of Yoga

Meditate

I lost my internet connection in the middle of today's yoga session, so today I meditated on how much Comcast sucks. Really though, isn't it sort of insane that, in this country, there are so many monopolies? Of course they're not literal monopolies, not legally defined as monopolies, but there are so many massive conglomerates… Continue reading Meditate

30 Days of Yoga

Surya

Today we honored the sun, even as it insisted on hiding behind a thick blanket of soggy, grey clouds. Yep, it's gone again after three blissful days of warmth and light and dryness; this morning was dark and wet and the cold just clings onto you, heavy and sad. Still, the sun must be up… Continue reading Surya

30 Days of Yoga

Flow and Core

When I said I'd had the worst day of the year way back on the third, well, I was right, but somehow I've experienced it again already...so far. Yesterday was awful. The sickness I've been fighting off since early November (that Husband has suffered with for the past two months) came at me full force.… Continue reading Flow and Core

Feel

I'm not saying I definitively can feel everyone else doing these practices at the same time as me, but I am saying my brain certainly thinks it can. Today's practice was perfect for early morning (even though I did it in, like, late morning). Husband and I had matcha lattes after sleeping in, and the… Continue reading Feel

30 Days of Yoga, Cats

Observe

Sometimes Bart tolerates Rutherford. Yeah, his ears are back, but they're not flattened in that "when-I-get-into-a-fight-with-this-beast-I-don't-want-them-torn-off" sorta way, but more like an "ugh-this-guy-again" southward jaunt. Sometimes he doesn't hiss and he just deals. And sometimes he even lets him lay next to him. Today wasn't one of those days. Today when I sat on the… Continue reading Observe

30 Days of Yoga

Foundation

Today was, as I texted my mother, the worst day of the year...so far. I fell asleep last night with a little ache in my noggin and woke up with an almost blinding pain rattling around my brain. Husband brought me two naproxen (which I've been avoiding in lieu of acetaminophen, but this was bad,… Continue reading Foundation

30 Days of Yoga

Discern

January is yoga month, has been for three years running now. Adriene Mischler's 30 day yoga series on YouTube this year is called Dedicate and that's exactly what I need to do to so many things. As blogging is one of those things, I think I'll write up quick posts everyday based around the daily… Continue reading Discern
