50 classes - halfway to 100!

I had a really amazing class yesterday. It was my 50th class! After two classes of struggle and pain, I made it through class yesterday with a minimum of brain chatter. My mind was quiet, my body was calm, I completed all the poses, I worked hard, the heat didn't get to me, I wasn't chugging water, it was a real testament to how far I've come.

I am so proud to be on this journey.

I am going deeper in the poses, my back bend was so great at the beginning of class yesterday. I struggled in triangle - I want to see what it looks like in the mirror because I'm going so deep that I'm losing the integrity of the pose I think. I wanted to write more about that quiet feeling.

I chose to just watch myself yesterday. To be present. To be quiet, to attend to the yoga, and not let my brain chatter take over. It worked - I was so focused and relaxed. I even managed to smile.
