Well, I didn’t do a great job this week accomplishing the goals I set last week. I did get to my scheduled workouts – two yoga classes and a strength training session – but the second goal, of working some yoga into each day, went by the wayside.
This brings out the dirty, little secret I don’t share with my yoga teachers or fellow students – I have no home practice. I used to have a home practice, sort of, but it more or less disappeared as soon as my first child learned to crawl. I can remember sitting on the floor in a particularly challenging pose and having my toddler land square on my knee. Not exactly a restful experience.
Now the most I manage is a few deep breaths from time to time, or a quick twist when I’m in my car at a stoplight. I had a teacher years ago who generously called this “sneaking a little yoga into your day.”
I did learn something important about myself, though. I never stop moving. At least not when I’m home. I run around all darned day. Which made me wonder whether I ought to consciously schedule twenty minutes each day to stand still.
