Karen’s Yoga Diary – Week 6

Week 6

It’s Monday 6.15 am, not too cold at all today. The clocks went back last night so its lighter this morning, I didn’t need my torch!

I’ve noticed some really impressive improvements this week! We went walking yesterday and I was climbing over the styles, of which there were several, like a gazelle! It was such a lovely feeling, freedom. It’s wonderful the body moving without having to make the effort to make it work! Sitting on the floor picnicking, again no problems getting down or up from the ground. The other thing I’ve noticed is when I get out of bed in the morning I’m nowhere near as inflexible as I was. I’m also continuing with getting my life organised so I actually get things done on time without last minuet rushing.

We started today cross legged, sitting on blocks, (I’m sure my knees are an inch lower than last time!) with controlled breathing. Aimie takes us through a little meditation focusing on compassion. This stills our mind and readies us for our practice.

From here we progress to practise the warrior and ‘extensions’ of the warrior pose. This was a very engaging flow of movements. We incorporated into this some one legged balancing, with the help of the blocks! The balancing was not as difficult as I thought it would be, this was because Aimie had taken us through several moves to work the muscles that would be used to hold the position. It’s all starting to come together as to why we do certain moves before others. One naturally leads to strengthening you for the other.

Time then, for the sun salutation. We perform this with the inclusion of the Warrior, but a slightly different variation to earlier. We do a back stretch; again this just feels so good! As I turn in one of the poses the clock catches my eye. I can’t believe its 7.05am. I’ve been in the gym for nearly an hour, where’s the time gone. After this we then move into a straight leg with a cross-legged position and start to twist with one hand on the floor and the other wrapped round the folded leg. This stretches along the spine and the side of the crossed leg. These deliberate stretches feel so good, you seem to just move into them.

We finish sitting crossed legged and then moving our body forward towards the floor. A couple of weeks ago I couldn’t move my body forward in this position at all, but today I was able to move through a few inches. I was so pleased. I can so feel my body responding to the yoga, and it’s something I really enjoy doing. We follow this by lying on our backs relaxing.

Tip No. 1 for Weight Loss

Hey all!

I hope you are well!

After my last blog I’m going to be posting my favourite tips for weight loss…so here goes…

No.1 – Enjoy the journey! Simply make sure, whatever you do, you enjoy it! If you’ve always fancied yoga find a class and try it! If you love the great outdoors start walking and incorporate more outdoor activities into your week! If, like me your a nutter and as a little girl you wanted a motorbike and to be rocky, training in a barn and hanging off the ceiling doing sit-ups, try a bootcamp, get a trainer who you really like or start some form of self defence. Just find something that makes you smile, stand a little taller and makes you feel proud of yourself!

The same goes with food! Over the past 5 years of my clients all being force fed green smoothies, I’m yet to find one who doesn’t love them or feel better for them, simply start eating or drinking more fresh, natural fruits and veggies and start being kind to yourself and enjoying food you like, that is good for you!

That’s it! Just start enjoying the journey and really living each day!
