30 Days of Yoga – Day 1

Well today marks my first day trying out Yoga. I meditated for about 15 minutes prior to starting (something else I’ve decided to start simultaneously), however, I have some mixed emotions about how it went. I searched on YouTube and there were quite a few “Yoga for beginners” videos. I tried a few and I think I’ve found the one I liked the most. Below I will list my likes and dislikes about my first Yoga experience.

Likes:

Being that I was watching these videos on YouTube there was plenty of variety therefore I was able to check as many as I wanted out prior to starting. I felt very relaxed and really had a sense of peace during and after my session. I can see the benefits of starting an exercise routine like this.

Dislikes:

I don’t have the proper equipment/gear to be able to perform some of the poses (i.e., yoga mat, belt, etc.). I also, couldn’t get the kids quiet enough for me to concentrate and focus on what I was doing. I realize that these “dislikes” have nothing to do with actual Yoga and more to do with me.

Overall I think it was great and I will keep on going and chronicle my journey along the way. As always any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. 🙂
