The new month has started and my steps for last week were average. I’m not breaking any records with my steps and have decided to take a break from challenges for a while. I am focusing on my yoga practice and setting up my classes accordingly. I spend 2-3 hours per day doing my yoga practice and getting ready for any classes that I’ll be teaching for the week. I have started to incorporate light weights into my personal practice which is very interesting on the body and my arms are getting quite a work out.
My accomplishment that I’m very proud of right now is that for the first time I can lower from high plank to low plank, hover for several seconds and push right back up in full push-up position. I have been able to lower and hover for quite a while now but the push back up is a new found success for me. It is a reminder that we all start somewhere and we all progress at our own perfect pace. My legs are incredibly strong but my arms, chest, back and shoulders still need work. I am truly a work in a progress and if I’m going to challenge my students I need to challenge myself. It is a true statement that we never push ourselves as hard as someone pushes us so I have to take classes as well with other instructors to feel like a real working student.
I am a student of yoga and life and truly enjoy celebrating my personal success as much as celebrating my students’ successes.
