90 Days of Namaste: Day 3

Word of the Day: Steady

Today I took my local gym’s vinyasa class which is the total opposite of my Monday Power Yoga. It’s quick, it’s full of balance poses and it makes you sweat!

I was grateful for the cardio blast but frustrated in my balance poses. I’m always weak on that point and that never feels good. But during one such pose, my teacher said ┬áto the class:

“Find yourself steady and secure.”

That immediately made me think of the tortoise and the hare, with (of course) the adage: Slow and steady wins the race. For the rest of the class, I felt much more patient with myself, because I was consciously remembering that this is a process. Rome wasn’t built in a day so my yoga progress certainly won’t be, hence my 90 day journey.

As always, I’m so glad I attended class, and, as always, I can’t wait for the next one.
