Denver is playing a wonderful little trick on us for today; it’s sunny and the high is 70*. And that made my morning a little more amazing…
One of my lululemon coworkers teaches regularly at a studio down the street; I’ve only recently discovered how much I love her classes, and try to go whenever I can. Today, that meant a 6:30 a.m. hour spent with Anusara yoga. After telling her that I finally got into Frog during a class on Friday night, she decided today’s theme would be hip-openers.
We spent the hour stretching with pigeons, lunges, frog, and some crazy seated twists that some unknown muscles pulling. Whew. In her words, it was our reminder to “stay grounded” as these holiday events, parties, shopping extravaganzas and travel plans begin to take life a little out of balance.
A little dose of great perspective and crazy stretches is a good start to the morning. How does it get better? Follow it with a run, running buddies, and a mountain view from the city Park.
Yup, that’s perfection.
How are you enjoying a good sweat (or two) today?
Runners (or any other tight-hippers),
what’s the yoga pose that challenges you the most?
