I shook things up to day and went to an hour hot flow at lunch today. My sister and the teacher made me laugh and I fell right down while attempting bird of paradise….pretty funny. Someday I’ll get it! It was a challenging hour and my abs were hurting later at work. It gave me quite a burst of energy that has lasted until now but hopefully not for much longer because it’s nearly bedtime.

It’s time to bring back pose of the day.

Half Tortoise Pose
Ardha-Kurmasana(Sanskrit)

Benefits :
Half Tortoise Pose can actually help us to live longer.

Tortoise is great for tense necks and shoulders.

It also increases blood flow to the brain, which enhances memory and mental clarity.

This posture also stretches the lower part of the lungs, which is therapeutic for asthma, and counter indigestion, flatulence, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.

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.
