Brainstorming on what the blog page is going to be about.
I want to use this platform to showcase my progress in fitness and write more!
So, This blog page is MOSTLY about how i keep up with myself.
I have always wanted to start a blog or a Youtube channel but i never got the courage to do it.
Feel free to leave comments on advice or tips, i should look for when i do my dues.
Growing up watching American movies and i remember so vividly watching Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider and i was ever so fascinated by her. Strong, Confident and Beautiful! she was absolutely amazing. That’s the idea of what a woman is, stuck into my head.
Even though where i grew up, women were consistently brought down and told what to do. They embraced beauty but not being strong.
but here we go!
I did a practice the other day and recorded it. I felt the need to view my posture especially at certain poses.
I don’t go to Yoga classes, i manly practice at home. I have been doing so for the past 6 months, and the progress….it is very very slow.
I have been active for years! however, i always took stretching for granted. Especially my legs. I used to workout my lower body a lot and i wasn’t mindful of “the power of the stretch”.
The pose in the video above is called “CAT COW” . It is important that you master this pose because you will need your back to open up. It’s what you should start with to help oxygen flow through your back; (be mindful of your stomach and core) Inhale: expand the tummy. Exhale: Contract the tummy and tuck it in.
I understand why the progress is slow. known what i used to do, I am not surprised that it will take long. Everything takes time and I am seeing much improvement especially in the inner hip area.
On this particular day I wasn’t feeling %100. As you can see my face is slowly waking up because this is from my morning flow and my right shoulder was in a lot of pain(I struggle with inflammation once in while it comes and goes).
This pose, when i first did it, I was confused. I didn’t go as far i could and the video has moved on. I see the my heals are not touching my butt so i gotta work on that. I follow videos through some of my practice to get tips and tricks.
btw, Excuse my organized mess. I like to grab a sweater, socks and of course coffee for my morning routine. I look forward to that sip of coffee while i do my yoga….It’s AMAZING.
I think it is important to be active and important to do something for yourself. Comfort yourself. The best way to get into a habit, is to have something to look forward to do when you do it and make it more exciting.
This is my favorite pose, Downward facing dog- and the other one i really don’t know what i’ts called. but it is one of my favorite poses too. I find myself just doing it randomly throughout the day if i am not doing anything.
Yoga is not just about the stretch and being able to do certain poses, it’s really a learning journey. You learn to clear your head and know how to organize your thought.
And you find yourself some days more flexible than others. We’re all different at the end of the day. And the more damage you have done to your body the more it’s going to take for it to heal. And that’s the same for the mind (since people think it don’t need a break).
Yoga is great for people who don’t necessary believe in a certain religion.
I think of it as the washing machine for the brain. I think that what prayer is or does. Or more like [cleansing the bad thoughts out] and [rearranging your thoughts to make yourself less overwhelmed].
Food for thought.
Tips For Starters is going to be the next week’s topic. And our vision is to focus.
