I wasn’t going to write a whole post about this but I’ve received more than a few comments and emails asking me to not only explainthe yoga programI’m doing, but also document my journey!
Well, between cooking, writing, blogging and chaturunga-ing, I doubt I’ll have time to document my日常关于该计划的思考，但我打算用你们的一次检查几次，让你知道它是怎么回事。
The program I’m doing is called4.0.Days to Personal Revolution, and it’s a Baptiste program offered by most Baptiste affiliated studios.
该计划周一正式启动，并涉及每周做3X，每天思考两次，日报和参加每周一次会议the studio。My studio offered the program twice before but I never was able to completely commit because of time constraints. When you think about it, doing yoga six times a week is a HUGE commitment! Sometimes I feel like I live between my kitchen and the studio. But that’s how I like it.
(It’s not like I’m a crazy type A or anything like that)
My strategy so far has been to combine my daily meditation time with my prayer time, but my mind always wanders into what’s for dinner or what I’ll be doing fifteen minutes from now. Readingthe bookhelps and I just try to take one breath at a time. There’s no crazy diet that goes along with the program, but it’s recommended that you give something up while practicing. I chose to give up all alcohol just because I don’t需要它。此外，我认为它会在我们的日期夜晚拯救我们几块钱。
So that’s about it so far! My arms are sore and my obliques are killing me. Practicing yoga so much definitely teaches you to listen to your body and gone are the days where I would power through a tough yoga class just to “do it”. Now, I take lots of rest and don’t hesitate before going down in child’s pose when I feel I need it. I also discovered你不必这样做every single chaturunga! What an idea! Cobra is nice, as is just going down in child’s pose or straight back to downward facing dog. There’s no reward for the person with the strongest triceps or the person who is the most flexible.
Gosh, I could use adrink果仁巧克力。
