Today’s yoga

Today’s yoga is a bit late – I got 3 hours of sleep, woke up very early for an art event, came home, and slept another 4 hours. Then, finally, yoga! I’ve been home two days and did my full yoga each day on nice, solid ground. Well, it sort of feels like it’s moving a bit but that will pass soon :). Tree pose is a bit tricky … but not as tricky as it was on the ship! Did you do your yoga yet today? Try a few head circles! #namaste

gentle yoga session

I had a gentle yoga session today. I’m still not risking plank (i.e. push-up) pose but I can do the rest of my routine, including hula-hooping. I’m doing my best to be gentle with the injured toe. I’m hoping my toenail doesn’t fall off, maybe it can heal? The dark area has been slowly expanding over the past two weeks but seems to have stalled, and it almost seems as if it’s getting lighter in the center. Is that a good sign? Or do I have to resign myself to losing the nail? #namaste

great yoga session today

I had a great yoga session today. Did you know that yoga helps buffer against DNA mutations? Some practitioners remain healthy despite having genetic abnormalities. The Icahn Institute did a large study where they tested people for genetic issues. They found quite a number of people who seemed perfectly healthy but it turns out they had DNA mutations. It appears their yoga routine and healthy eating buffered them against their mutations “activating” and causing the disease. #namaste

great yoga session

I enjoyed a great yoga session this morning. Yoga provides a WEALTH of free health benefits. Find a way to get yoga into your daily routine! #namaste With all the uncertainty going on with our health care, it’s wise for each of us to do the very best we can to ensure our own health, especially if it’s wholly free to do so. Have you done any stretches today? Try some simple head rotations!
