Today I am thankful for the practice of yoga. I started doing yoga during college via YouTube videos back when Hilaria Baldwin posted her videos for free. I didn’t practice consistently but I did enjoy the post-yoga stretch feeling. I am by no means an expert… no fancy inversions here!
I love how yoga forces me to take deep breaths and control my breathing. I only like the videos that tell you when to inhale and exhale… otherwise, I forget to breathe 😝 Yoga also lengthens my muscles and feels like an active (and free!) form of massage. Back when I did heavier weightlifting, I always looked forward to my yoga stretch days.
I rarely do yoga nowadays but am hoping to practice more consistently. One of my barriers has been time. 60 minute sessions are nice, but even a 15 minute session yields some benefits. Today I did an hour of it and it feels great!
