In Retrospect of Yoga Month

Alright, alright, alright.  As per usual, I did not get to complete even remotely as much as I wanted to.  AND, getting right back into a monthly focus has got me instantly busy again.  With this months’ focus and new adventures in general.  Here’s the breakdown of my meager accomplishments: did yoga anywhere from two to four times per week, took classes at my neighborhood gym (which was surprisingly good,) and did yoga at home.  So, now you’re asking: Why no yoga hike?  Why no hot yoga?  These are good questions.  And ones I can’t really answer. Thirty days is just not enough anymore to complete everything I want.

I bought the Groupon for Bikram Yoga, which I fully intend on using very soon and on my next weekend day off I am totally going on the yoga hike.  Which leads me to this very predicament.  I like doing yoga.  I like baking, and running, and working out, and writing, and community service, and I just can’t stop doing anything.  There is so much carry over that it leaves very little time to add something new.  But this is okay.  This is actually what I love about this project.  I was worried I didn’t know what I really wanted to do, but now I don’t now what I *don’t* want to do.  I’m enjoying everything so much, which is pretty much my outlook on life in general right now.

So, what’s next ?  ?  ?

June – Yoga Month

I thought for a long time about what I wanted to focus on this month. I have a growing list of things I want to do… gardening, sewing, kickboxing, biking, glass blowing, swing dancing, playing the guitar, and learning another language, but yoga wasn’t on there. And this month’s focus has to be epic. This is my re-introduction to the world of newing and my full maiden voyage on the new website. I wanted to choose something relaxing, yet social. Something active, yet subdued (I’m not ready to start training for any more half marathons any time soon.) I wanted something positive. Yoga seemed like the perfect fit.

I have taken a few yoga classes before at my gym. I have enjoyed them, the handful of times that I’ve gone. But there are so many variations and forms of yoga that I want to try. I want to do yoga in weird places, like the waterfront or on hikes. I want go from beginner to intermediate. I am also going to be continuing the anti-inflammatory diet my doctor put me on 3 weeks ago. I will be tracking any weight loss or inches dropped in the process. My goal this month is to do yoga 4-5 times a week at various locations and possibly lose 5-10 pounds.
