Not so Flow and Flexibility Achievements

Sometime last night as I lay on the couch Netflixing and scrolling my Instagram feed, I saw the daily post go up for the #RunnersLoveYogaFlow challenge. Since my day was essentially over, I saved it to do first thing this morning. And that's what I did.

Day 2- reverse warrior
Three thoughts: I love that I know what this pose is without having to Google it. I can move through the flow sequence to get to it (yay). I really need to work on my leg position when I'm doing do this I think I just need to slow down.

Not wanting to waste a nice set of warmed up muscles, I went right on with my morning workout pre-coffee. NBD.

30 Day Pilates Body
Day 22 - legs
Most of the leg exercises in today's video were a repeat of my Pilates class yesterday. I almost couldn't do them today! Like the kneeling side kick. I could feel this one working my abs and back too, as I tried to keep my core stable. Hard work here!!

I had just enough time for a cup of coffee and some TV before yoga class. So much sadness in the news again. I used to run to sort through my emotions, but now I find that the challenge of yoga helps.

I made it to yoga without getting rained on. We are on a Yellow Alert through tomorrow which means a lot of rain in a short period.

Flow 70 with Lee
Lee turned out to be a man and my first male yoga instructor. Lee was good, but Flow was really more like Hatha. We practiced a lot of poses, some with variations, but we didn't really move from one pose to the next. I still liked the session though. Oh, and I really nailed, I mean NAILED, crow pose today.

After class, I made a smoothie for breakfast/lunch. 

The new "new" washing machine was delivered. The owner, Paulie, came along to oversee things. About an hour later the installer came to hook it up and again the owner was here to see it was done properly. 

Service in China is much quicker than the US. The Bosch repairman came the same day that we called in and two days later we have a new machine installed.

A month ago I vowed to improve my forward fold. Armed with great advice from my yoga pal Danielle, regular yoga classes on my schedule, and yoga challenges, I'm getting there! So today, I love my muscles for being flexible!
