Day one hundred and ninety three

Leave a comment

I had such a nice home practice this evening. After a little Nordic style ski it felt extra good to stretch out my hip flexers a bit. I even started with some pranayama. I sat on a block and inhaled for four seconds, held my breath for four seconds, exhaled for four seconds, and then held my breath out for four seconds. I did this for several rounds, maybe 2.5 minutes worth. It is not easy and feels sort of odd but good at the same time.
I am trying to classic ski on a regular basis in order to be a little ready for the 25K next month. I must also be sure to take care of my hips, they can get sore and tight with all the back and forth skiing action.
A quick Google of yoga for skiing led me to the following little article. I liked it.

Good night.

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.
