It’s a beautiful Sunday morning of the July long weekend. I’ve had the time and space to work, spend time with friends, do some much-needed upgrades around the house and most importantly, carve out some time for myself.
To that end, I’m rocking a fresh mani-pedi, I made it through 10 chapters of The Success Principles, my garden is looking a little fancier and just now, I got my yoga on.
I picked something fast and furious to kick my butt in gear. I’ve been wide awake since 4am this morning, something that’s starting to happen on the regular lately (which seriously blows), but I”m going with it. I figure I can just get my day started early and ended early (there’s nothing like a 7:45pm bedtime, right?).
I wanted to share the yoga sesh I found on YouTube with you. I thought it was a really creative take on fusing HIIT style exercise with traditional yoga poses – something I think has awesome benefits for “booty and mind”. I will say however, I think some of her transitions could be a little safer as she goes from some pretty intense cardio sequences to forward bends which is not the safest move to do from a heart perspective, but you guys are smart enough to modify if you need.
Anyway, I also like this gal because she’s not a talker. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but it drives me nuts when yoga teachers feel a need to explain everything in such minuet detail to the point that they never shut up. The constant chatter distracts me from going inward, which is kinda the point of the whole thing. First world problems, I know…
So here you go. Fast and furious like I said, but really cool. Let me know what you think!
Hope you had an awesome long weekend!
