That’s right. I am talking about yoga. To save some money this summer I have been practicing outside on my patio. Not that I don’t miss Orlando power yoga,but since the move my favorite yoga studio is now very far away, and I haven’t found a price on this side of town I like yet. Ergo FREE yoga on my patio. Even though I don’t sweat as much as I used too. I always need a good stretch.
I have these great yoga cards that my mom got me a couple years ago and they really come in handy. I pick a few random cards and work on my stretch. I started with some side stretch’s, warriors, tree, leg kicks, shoulder stand, wheel and ended with a camel.
With so many cards to choose from I can switch my routine up pretty much every time, or once I get bored with a set. I have a tons of yoga books as well, but this is nice to set up a card in front of you when learning a new move. There are a total of 50 yoga exercises.
The cards are set up into sections such as:
- stress relief & relaxation
- mind & spirit
Personally I take a mix of cards from each section and build a routine out of it. To fit my needs of that day, week or month. Each card gives you step by step with a picture to follow along. I will use my tree card as an example.
Tree is starting by standing straight up with legs together and hands by side. Once balanced is reached start by bringing one leg up in a bent position. Bring palms together in front of chest and remember to breath (it helps with keeping balance.) Hold here for 10counts or till you feel your body tell you to bring down. As our instructors would always say in Orlando Power Yoga, were so lucky to have two sides, now switch to the other leg.
Do you enjoy yoga? How often do you practice?
