Let’s get moving!
I found this great little article in a magazine I was reading recently. Essentials.
I’ve done some yoga in the past but I‘ve always found it really long. I don’t have 90 minutes to do yoga.
(who does with 2 children - and one who is under 2?)
So this article about the flow of the Sun Salutation really hit home for me.
I have been following the pictures and now do this routine in the mornings before the rest of house wakes up.
I think the article says to aim for 15 Salutations. Well I’m doing 5 right now and hope to increase that gradually to 10 over the next 2 weeks.
I find that the first 2 Salutations I’m quite stiff and there are definite cracks of joints while I do each pose but by the 5th Salutation I’m flowing. Which is just what I need to do in the mornings.
I have found my mornings are going a lot more smoothly. My boys are happier and J, my older one, is ready for school much earlier than in past weeks and months. Like by 6.45am where before it was 7 or even later and I was stressing!!!
It just seems to be smoother.
So go ahead and try these moves to help get you into the flow….
If you know of a mom or a friend who needs to bring some harmony into her life then feel free to share this with her…. She’ll be glad to receive and so will I.
