    Daily Yoga | 200 Days.

    …it’s been nearly five months since I shared more of my Daily Yoga story here. That last update, on July 22 marked 60 days in a row. Yesterday, I hit 200. I haven’t missed a day since May 23. Most days it’s fifteen minutes while the coffee brews or just before bed, but almost every Wednesday it’s an hour of Yin at the Y.  I worked through an elbow and hamstring injury and started back to Saturday afternoon Power classes in October. I’m hoping to make them a regular routine again this weekend. Year-to-date, I’ve spent 164 hours (and 35 minutes – of course I’m keeping track!) on the mat.…

    Looking Back | February.

    …and just like that, another month has flown by. So many things about February made me smile: sunshine and blue skies (honestly, the month felt kind of gray while it happened…but clearly these photos tell a different story!) early signs of spring at the very end of the month – that tree on the 27th is the one I’ve designated for “Spring Watch”; I hope by the time I do this post for March it’s full on green. We’ll see! our trip to Madison (especially the “three of us” cheers on the 15th) knitting! three WIPs and four FOs Charlie – now 5-1/2 months old (featured in eight photos, including…

Green means I took a class (at the Y) and blue means I did a routine with the Yoga Studio app on my iPad. This morning I took a look back at January: 17 classes 14 Yoga Studio sessions 1,500 minutes (25 hours! this number surprised me. that’s 25 hours I didn’t read or knit or walk or do anything except yoga. I’m honestly not sure I can commit to that much time each month, but I want to try.) I’m slowly starting to see progress. A little more flexibility (I can…

    One Thing for 2015 | Beginning.

    …remember a few weeks back I posted about that One Thing? A huge Thank You for your encouragement and creative input! Day One. I’ve decided it’s going to be yoga. Yep, that hadn’t even made the short list when I wrote that last post; it seemed too much of a stretch. But a few more things came together over that next week (including a very surprising one little word) and daily yoga suddenly didn’t seem so hard. My goal is just 15 minutes a day, with poses focused on flexibility, balance and strength. Days I get to take a class are easy; it’s the days where it’s me and my…
