So, yeah, yoga. All day, every day. Definitely kidding on the all day part; didn’t quite make it to every day. I’ve been feeling totally unmotivated to do any type of strength training recently – recently meaning over a month – so I finally decided to branch out from my usual restorative yoga and do all the yogas for a while. I also signed up for the intro month special at a local yoga studio, because unlimited classes for $30. We shall see how many of those classes I actually get to. I like going to studio classes, but I also like doing yoga at home where I don’t need to dress presentably. So this week, day-by-day:
Monday: 20-minute morning vinyasa video.
Tuesday: I planned to go to a restorative yoga class, but for some reason I was exhausted. So exhausted that leaving my house for restorative yoga sounded like too much trouble. So this was the day I didn’t do yoga. Though I clearly left my house at some point because I did go for a run.
Wednesday: 1-hour hip opening vinyasa video. This is one of my favorite yoga videos, so here’s the link. Though to be honest I always fast forward through the “peak pose” (flying pigeon), because I’m nowhere near that flexible.
Thursday: 10-minute morning vinyasa video. This one was not my favorite; too fast and bouncy for morning, or really any time in my opinion. Also 3x800m interval run at (hopeful) 5K pace.
Friday: Gentle yoga class. Yay, I finally actually went to a studio class.
Saturday: 45-minute shoulder strength/mobility vinyasa video. Conclusion: my shoulders might have some issues.
Sunday: So I had good intentions of trying a new trail to run, but then I didn’t get out the door until after 10:30 so going to the nearby trail with lots of shade sounded like a better idea. And then my GPS apparently ran all over the mountains without me, but since I know the trail I can say my feet ran 4.5ish miles. Also 30-minute bedtime yoga class.
Other happenings of the week: I read a bunch of papers, kept the aspen tree shoots from taking over the yard, unsuccessfully car shopped, and made kombucha from my accidental scoby. Because when you leave a jar of unfiltered kombucha in the fridge for 6+ months…you accidentally grow a new scoby.
What’s your favorite style of yoga? Yoga studio or videos at home?
