Eva and I have been SUPER stressed lately. I’ve been waking up early running through presentations and thoughts of things to follow up on swimming through my head. My lower back and shoulders feel tight. Eva has way too many stuffed animals and tennis balls to keep track of.
Instead of succumbing to our normal vices (pastries and online shopping) we’ve been religious in our daily morning yoga practices. How do you have time for that, what with all of the presentations and evasaurus hunting - you might ask? I will share a story a yoga instructor once told me. Who says a yoga practice is 60 minutes? Or 90? Yoga can be anything - 1 sun salutation or bringing focus to your breath while chopping carrots.
Eva and I fall somewhere in the middle. Our preference is 20 to 30 minutes of stretching, breathing, and moving as the sun rises so that once it’s light out we’re ready for Eva’s morning walk. With that, I share some of my recent favorites from my personal trainer, YogaGlo:
Curvy Flow with Andrea Ippoliti
Change Your Entire Day with Stephanie Snyder
Warming Flow for Energy with Stephanie Snyder
I can happily say for the past few weeks since returning from Spain I’m down from 3 daily desserts (after lunch, after work, after dinner) to 1.5 (mostly just 1 of those, but who am I kidding sometimes more). And Eva’s been munching on a lot of teeth cleaning bones. Those are like veggies for pups, right?
