Stretching Further

If I'm losing balance in a pose, I stretch higher and God reaches down to steady me. It works every time, and not just in yoga. ~T. Guillemets

A couple of weekends ago I helped my sister clean out her room. We are trying to gear up for a yard sale so she was sorting through her things. Some of it went into the yard sale pile...and some of it went into my keep pile. lol. One of the things I kept was a yoga dvd..A.M. Yoga for Your Week. I talked Jeremy into trying it with me (I didn't have to twist his arm very hard).

The dvd is made up of five 20-minute sessions, each focusing on different things. When Jeremy gets home we take the dogs for a quick walk and then we pop in the dvd. We've only done it yesterday and today so far, but we have both enjoyed it a lot. We sort of laughed about the whole doing an A.M. workout in the evening, but there is something to be said for doing a little yoga after work. It's a time for us to turn off the computer and TV, to put down our cell phones, and just relax. It's something that I am beginning to really look forward to. And I'm so glad that Jeremy is doing it with me. I can't wait to see what the rest of the dvd holds and I'm already looking for other yoga dvd's for us to try out.

    Good for y'all though, that sounds really relaxing!!
