So this week was my second yoga class and I had one notable thought throughout the class... OH MY GOSH EVERYTHING ACHES SOOOOOOOOOO BAD ! However it was bearable, I know this because I persevered and put up with the aching. I also learned that it's okay every now and then to let go of the pose and take a second to regather your strength. No one in the class is judging you, they're all too concerned with their own aching limbs so remember to listen to your body and do what feels right. My struggles with Downward dog continued, but a lovely lady in the yoga class moved her mat to be next to me because she saw me struggling and offered me some tips ( It turns out everything's easier when you're doing it right, who knew eh ? hehe ). She was really kind and helpful so I think I'm going to pick her up a box of vegan chocolates in the week as a thank you !
What went well : My Downward Dog is definitely improving.
What I need to improve : Being able to hold poses for longer.
How I'm going to improve : I'm going to do weights every day to improve my strength.
What've you done this week to improve yourself or make yourself proud ? Let me know in the comments !
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
|This is my current efforts towards the extended child's pose ... it's a great pose to relax into when you're struggling to hold more difficult poses for as long as the rest of the class !|
