Word of the Day: Integration
DC looks like a winter wonderland outside, but the roads have been taken over by snow-mageddon. I wanted to try this new yoga studio close to my house, but bad weather equates bad traffic equates bad accidents…you get the picture.
So what better day to do online yoga and try the next video in my favorite series, Psyche Truth!
I am obsessed with Erica Vetra. She is spunky, encouraging but also gives you a heck of a workout. Today I did Level 2 in her Yoga for Weight Loss series and I highly recommend it. It’s only 30 minutes long but man does it make you sweat. It’s a mixture of vinyasa and core work, which for me was exactly what I needed.
I was so touched by the outpouring of positivity I received yesterday after I launched this 90 day journey. So today, I felt compelled to push myself. In every pose I focused intensely on my posture and in return felt more clarity than ever before. I know it’s only been 2 days, but my new approach to my practice (i.e. making it a daily commitment for growth rather than a sporadic pleasure) has given me a new attitude on my body and my practice, which feels great 🙂
At the end of the video, Erica said, “Let the work that you do integrate into your body.” That really hit home. Just like my daily stress impacts my body, yoga will too, but in a restorative, positive way. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
