On the Mat: 21 minutes.
Observations: This practice surprised me. Just what I needed. Still modifying to Find What Feels Good and love the gentle prompts by Adriene.
Insights: Resting Easy in this practice of Breath and allowing my heart to lead not my head all the time:) This practice I will definitely revisit♥️.
But, I’ll Take Today: Slowing down Listening to my Breath not the endless Chatter of my Brain.
And some Downward-Facing Dog: This pose has been one of my biggest challenges while beginning my at-home yoga practice with Adriene and getting to know all the other poses more intimately.
But, Downward-Facing Dog has and still is my Numero Uno on challenge list and it’s often where the practice begins! So, it definitely sets me up for the ‘do I really wanna keep doing this?’ Mindset while also seeing Adriene do this pose with such ease and grace. it’s inspired me to dig a little deeper into the Pose to discover my own version FWFG (Find What Feels Good).
Currently, I’m a Beginners-awkward and uncomfortable, but I do cut myself some slack:) But, now 19 days into Dedicate I’ve decided I really need to make this popular pose a friend instead of a foe. Especially if I’m want to keep practicing Yoga.
And Adriene came through HERE. Breaking it down in a Downward-Facing Blog Post:) while sharing her own similar beginning challenges. Yes, of course there is a video. Totally awesome.
She also shared this equally awesome article from The HuffPost, The Real Reason Downward-Facing Dog Is So Good for You. Worth a check out as well.
Maybe this will help you too and Now going forward for the last leg of My Dedicate Journey, I want to continue to go more deep into all the foundation poses. I of course will post it here for you as well.
Tomorrow: Day 20. Lead.
PS It’s not too late for you to Join myself and many others on Dedicate-A 30 Day Yoga Journey. HERE It least check it out:)
