I would like to recommend two online fitness challenges:
30 Day Yoga Home Journey by Yoga with Adriene – This series contains a gentle vinyasa flow paired with kind words and peaceful thoughts. Time spent with Adriene and her co-host Benji (dog) is never wasted. https://yogawithadriene.com/home-30-days-of-yoga/
I went to the local garden center today to buy herbs. Unfortunately, most of the plants had died due to the unseasonably cold temperatures. I turned a corner and saw that all of the Pansies remained in full bloom. I felt proud to see the flowers overcoming their stereotypical weakness.
I found it hearwarming that Yale is offering free classes on well-being. I recommend taking the class or registering to thumb through the material. The content is uplifting during this time of uncertainty.
I took North End Yoga’s first live stream yoga class today and it was wonderful. This is my favorite yoga studio in the city. They are offering single classes or a two week pass. All classes run through Zoom and a link is emailed to you 15 minutes before the start of the class. Classes can be purchased through the Mindbody website/app.
I am currently reading the book “Yogi Code” by Cameron Alborzian. One chapter recommends the use of a daily morning routine to set the tone for your day. The first step is to arise at the same time that the sun illuminates the horizon. Luckily, I am reading this book in the springtime in Boston. The sun is scheduled to rise at 6:41am tomorrow (3/23). Tomorrow will mark my first day of this new journey. See you then.
