I’ve discovered that the hardest thing about yoga is actually rolling out your mat and doing it. I’ve been consistently inconsistent with practicing 2-3 times a week. Mostly I just ended up going straight to the Savasana, in bed, which is easily done after a day of work.
However I’m pleased to say I have managed to get 20 minutes in somewhere once a week, and I feel better for it.
I’m starting to find the poses and routines easier, and I can almost touch my toes which is something I’ve had difficulty with for a long time. I’m not sure if my yoga gains are translating into my climbing just yet, but I’m hopeful that high foot moves and anything stretchy will begin to get a little easier. Generally it just feels good, almost like a declutter for the body and brain. I think sticking to once a week is the best plan for now, as a little is better than none.
Once I get a little more confident with my poses and balance, I’m going to try and get A Boy Who Climbs to do some
crazy Acro-Yoga with me. He is not aware of this plan just yet, so we’ll see how that goes in the next update!

Omg you should definitely do some Acro Yoga! It’s awesome fun and a great workout! (though it is pretty hard :p). Would love to hear how it goes. I’m going to a class tonight and I think I will have to write a blog about it soon…

It’s titled ‘Yoga for You’ by Tara Fraser 🙂 I’ve found it great for starting out
