Day 9: 02.13.20⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
Getting my yoga done earlier in the day felt so good! I experimented with Yoga Bolsters and Blocks from halfmoonyoga! Thanks Sachi for sharing you're knowledge with me! I have heard so much about them from yoga lovers all around me. I also had some extra love from a little human joining me in my practice! 

 What is a yoga bolster: Body pillow but firmer and either a rectangle or circle in shape. Its main purpose is to create relaxation, help soften a posture, or aid in opening the body. As I experimented with the bolster, I found so much comfort and support.

Tired. I got a lot done today. My mind is drained.
Gentle, Relaxing Cozy Flow. I wanted to give my self a good stretch, while moving my body in all four directions to feel balanced, maintain my low end of the night energy and relax. 

 ⁣⁣⁣ 𝘏𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘠𝘰𝘨𝘢 𝘋𝘦𝘤𝘬: Half Shoulder Stand - Ardha sarvangasana

My feet can touch over my head with this one aha. This asana stimulates metabolism and the immune system, helps with digestion, improves blood flow, promotes balance and deep stretching.✨⁣

Day 7: 02.11.20⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
One week. Core power practice. YOU are a lot stronger than you think. Using my breath really changed how much I could handle in the more muscles of my body. In the middle of a targeted core practice, who knew you could learn and love so hard? Towards the end of my yoga, I felt a lot of emotions rising and I had a few tears, just overwhelmed. I took that moment to accept, breathe and share gratitude for my self. 

 ⁣⁣⁣ 𝘏𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘠𝘰𝘨𝘢 𝘋𝘦𝘤𝘬: Childs Pose - Balasana 
My Favourite yoga pose so far when it comes to resting and letting go. Childs pose, promotes feelings of being nurtured and secure. Relaxes the neck. Stretches the spine, and helps with digestive issues. ✨⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣

Day 6: Learning the basics of yoga, challenged someone to start yoga for 30 days and then continue for 60, 200, 365 😌

15 minute Moon Practice, perfect for anyone under any stress. This practice invites you to get quiet, decompress, and call in some lunar energy. I am a moon child. My safe place. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 "𝐒𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐌𝐨𝐨𝐧". 𝐀 𝐟𝐮𝐥𝐥 𝐦𝐨𝐨𝐧. ⁣ ⁣ This gentle flow is a beautiful balance of strength and softness, perfect for an evening practice, a full moon, or just to bring a balance of yin into your day. Ideal for anyone who is feeling overstimulated, overheated, or straight up exhausted.⁣ ⁣ I keep falling over, I need to listen to my core and remember to breathe.

Day 4:⁣⁣ 02.08.20⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Did something different today. Noticed high energy, positive vibes around my self. I took advantage of this by just staying present and doing some mind yoga. Staying present and engaging in the energies around myself. ⁣ T𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘓𝘦𝘰. 𝘚𝘖 𝘮𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘺 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘴 𝘮𝘦! ✨⁣⁣⁣

Day 3 - Still figuring out what I want to do in terms of "recording myself" feels so awkward right now. Deep back and neck stretch tonight.

20 minute restorative yoga practice

Day 1: For the past few days I have been super disconnected with myself so I took the opportunity to check in with my body and mind. Today I am acknowledging all the distractions, frustrations and parts of my body that need more love. I started my wellness session with an affirmation card: Do not compare yourself to others, you are unique and that's awesome. 20 Minutes beginners stretch and ended my yoga with an Expansive Breath that helps energize the body, relieves tension in the back/neck and brings in warmth.

One skill should really be interesting t...
