Happy 100th day of yoga all in a row! Wow. That happened fast. I’ve never had a reference of what 100 days feels like, it seems longer than just over 3 months or 14.3 weeks.
Also happy day light savings! Gosh it sure is dark now at 7pm…welcome to winter.
And of course happy Sunday! I was up a bit early thanks to the time change so I had a great breakfast of gluten free banana pancakes and a piece of bacon.

Bikram this afternoon was nice…but not until it was over. It felt like it had been a while since my last class (only two days) and I kept getting that sick feeling. Like nauseous sick. I used to get that a lot especially in camel but lately have not had to experience it. I hope that isn’t a new normal.

Those are ice bubbles in the lagoon. It’s time to sharpen the skates!
I feel like I should be ending the Bikram pose of the day today on day 100 but that isn’t happening…

Spine-Twisting Pose
Ardha-Matsyendrasana(Sanskrit)

Benefits :
This is the only posture that twists the spine from top to bottom, which increases circulation to all the spinal nerves, veins, and tissues, and improves the elasticity of the spine.

Spine Twisting relieves lower back pain and helps prevent slipped discs, rheumatism of the spine, kyphosis, scoliosis, cervical spondylosis and arthritis.

It also calms the nervous system.

I heard some ladies talking after class about how they were finished or nearly finished with their 30 day challenges. They were so happy that they had done it and thrilled with how great they felt. Congrats ladies and everyone else who challenges themselves in order to be happier and more comfortable in their bodies.

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.
