Before you've practiced, the theory is useless. After you've practiced, the theory is obvious...

So, I've decided that it's time to take care of me... I know I've mentioned a few times over the last month or so that I need to do it -but today was the start.

A yoga studio opened across the street from the store, and today I took my first class. What was so great too, was that it was the first yoga class I'd taken in quite some time that wasn't Power Ashtanga or Power Vinyasa; just a basic yoga class, with poses and minimal flow. I forgot how great it was to just work up to certain poses without the constant flow of vinyasa. Not that I don't love Vinyasa because I do -- but the change was nice.

Best of all is that I can take classes 3-4 days a week because the schedule fits my working schedule. So, I'm excited to get back into that groove again. It's amazing how centered you become, how much perspective you gain....and how unbelievable you feel once you practice. It's funny how something like exercise can do that to you, but it's more than just the exercise. It's the letting go and balance of it all. Sounds crazy, I know....but trust me, it's the real deal.
