Yoga Fail. Beach Bliss.
I struggled through my beloved yoga practice this morning. I felt really awkward and tight but what was worse, I had no motivation. So disappointed as I’ve felt really physically and mentally strong. On top of it. I’ve been really disciplined with my home practice and in a great routine for weeks and weeks. So yes, feeling a bit down on myself. They say that when you feel resistance like this you need to persist. This resistance is apparently your mind and body telling you exactly what you need to focus on the most. But babes between you and me I just wasn’t into. I persisted for say 15 mins and then, I’ll admit it, gave up. I know. Not very “zen” of me at all. I left my mat in a huff, got breakfast ready for my little tribe and when they woke up I announced that we were going to start our Beach Campaign for 2015. They were utterly shocked firstly by the hour and secondly that the beach towels and equipment (i.e. plastic shovels, moulds and buckets essential to quality castle building) were packed and in the car. Yep I was ready to go.
Gracious it was glorious. I mean really glorious. There were so many people out taking advantage of the change of season.
Getting out in the sun and diving into the salt water is such a magical experience. Renewing. I can’t tell you how much I love it. How much we love it. It’s like we have cleared out the winter sleepiness and we are charged with readiness for the summer months.
As far as my beloved yoga practice goes, my mat will be there at 5:30am tomorrow. Forgiving and welcoming, as always. Bless it.
Hope you’ve had a lovely Sunday! XO
