30 Days of Yoga: Day 1
I’m doing Marianne Elliott’s 30 Days of Yoga program, which began yesterday. Thursday is my last work day for the week, and yesterday I also had an appointment with my accountant in the afternoon to do our tax returns and a show in the evening to review for an arts website. I had no idea how I was going to fit in a yoga session, at least not in a mindful, open way, and I was tired and sore (but quite content) after taking a long stroll home from my appointment. So when I got in the door and took off my shoes I decided to start my 30 days very simply, and laid down on the floor of the loungeroom in savasana and waited for my mind and body to settle. It was exactly what I needed. It brought my attention right into the present moment. Once the chatter in my brain stopped and my body relaxed I realised that what I needed right then, in that moment, was a deeper rest, so I slowly got up and went to bed for a nap. Perfect.
