Dedicate/Day 19. Listen.


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.

Love, C.
