Follow Up: After 40 Days

Just over two weeks ago I completed 40 days of the same yoga set. The strength and flexibility that I have regained in my back is highly motivating. Committing to a consistent yoga schedule was really helping my back, along with a diet that eliminated common inflammation-causing foods (dairy, wheat, and white sugar). What I have ultimately learned, however, is that this particular yoga set is my “reset button”. Every time I come back to it, I feel like my back has been adjusted and my mentality is reset.

However…for the past two weeks I have let yoga slide! Once a week is not enough! I have noticed that I am getting a little stiffer in the mornings again, but I need a goal to keep me motivated. So here it is. For the next 11 days I will commit to one hour of yoga in the ambrosial hours of the morning. No night time cop-out yoga this time. No more laziness sleeping in past dawn, time to start getting up at my favourite time of day again – 5am! I would like to do the Woman’s Set three times a week, along with two more meditative and two abdominal and front-body core heavy (Third Chakra).

Anyone feel like joining in?
