Do some yoga!

July 17, 2012 § 4 Comments

Do some yoga!  I told myself, I’d work on being kinder to myself. Yet, when I sit here doing other things like writing or job searching, the voice in my head screams do some yoga! It’s kind of mean. Not encouraging me with a gentle do your yoga for the day kind of tone. Instead it’s demanding and demeaning. The tone, not the words, is more like do some fucking yoga ya lazy bitch! As though I’m about to fail once again at accomplishing the one workout goal I’ve set for myself lately. At first I thought I’d jump right back into hiit and tabata workouts and running and yoga. But, lately I realize none of that is gonna happen. It just isn’t. I’m not the same person I was … before becoming pregnant and delivering a dead baby. I lack the dedication and I don’t know, oomph, from before.

I know it’s only been a month and I’m still mourning in all the ways people mourn and maybe even some new ways never before mourned. I’d talk about some of them, but I’m sure I’d be committed if I did that, so I’ll keep them to myself until the coast is clear.

My yoga dvd of choice is Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga. I’ve been doing him for years. He’s good, he’s not too annoying and I can follow his direction well. Check him out here.

    In grief I’ve found more of a restorative yoga practice to be beneficial. But then again, some days the pounding of pavement feels awesome. It always changes. Best of luck in healing in movement and in stillness.

      Thank you for your kind words. I’ve been reading your blog. I think we have a similar relationship with yoga. On and off for many years, sometimes really strict and sometimes too many weeks neglected. I’m sorry for your loss. The picture of your mom on your about page is beautiful.
