Day seventy two

Leave a comment

Let’s start with the pose of the day shall we.

Standing Bow Pose
Dandayamana-Dhanurasana

Benefits :
Standing Bow moves all the blood from one side of the body to the other, then back again.

It develops balance, increases the size and elasticity of the rib cage, firms the abdominal wall and upper thighs.

It improves the flexibility and strength of the lower spine.

Standing Bow builds patience, determination and concentration.
Thank you Bikram…

My class today was a Bikram class. It was one that I had to force myself to stay focused. I was strong but my mind didn’t really care to be there. Also, I’ll have to take back how I said that awkward pose is “easy” the other day. It was not that today, maybe I’ve been doing it wrong or something.

I have challenged myself to do yoga everyday for one year and thought I'd blog about it. I have been practicing yoga on and off and back and forth for about 9 years and I have decided that it is time for me to really delve in and figure out what it's all about, if it is something I want to make part of my life. I also thought this might put some discipline in to my day and be a fun way to express my thoughts and share some pictures that may or may not have anything directly to do with yoga.
