So continuation of Part 3 and the cultivation of a daily practice of 30 Sun Salutations a day can present to be challenging,  however even if I miss fitting all 30 in each day,  I will always #gettheeffupsidedown! Why? Because it’s rejuvenation for the entire body and mind! Gives the same blissful rush I get after finishing 30 Suraya Namaskar back to back.

So if you haven’t quite made the mark at 2 weeks into the start of this journey,  tell your yogic mind to have no worries, just get upside down!

Upside Down and Tucked in

Another factor that has effected my ability to belt out my 30 Surya Namaskar is my food and training regimen for my upcoming fitness competition,  needless to say the energy isn’t there most days, so I get upside down for as long as this yogi can tolerate to boost my blood pressure,  metabolism,  and energy to go about the rest of my day,  I still warm up with my Sun Sal’s but I just don’t do as many.

Until next time….#PracticeStrong, #PracticeOften #OM #Shanti #Namaste

The things that evolve from your practice late at night.  After getting home from work Tuesday evening and hitting my mat after a 30 minutes walk on the treadmill I set a timer: 30 minutes, and simply began working through Surya Namaskara A taking the time just to salute myself for practicing at midnight as the creative energy that evolved was amazing!

I took my time flowing through my practice,  taking time to stop and ponder, meditate in gratitude,  and decompress my mind and body from pinned up frustrations,  fears, and emotions.  I pondered my future,  where I saw myself going personally,  professionally,  and spiritually. I even played around with a few challenging postures that I am determined to master some day.

I only managed to complete 10 sun salutations in that short period of time which included a brief savasana but all in all I’ve decided to challenge myself to do 30 sun salutations a day for 30 days! I’ll update you as often as possible on how that’s going,  until then #PracticeStrong #PracticeOften #YogaEveryDamnDay #Namaste
