Yoga Retreat Sneak Peek Review

Standard

I was conflicted.  I am in South Louisiana.  My state flooded last weekend…well, the southern part anyway.  So, while I am doing what I can – financially and practically, I feel unbelievably grateful because we didn’t sustain any damage personally.  Our neighborhood, yes; us, no.  So, while my life doesn’t have the incredible inconveniences that come with natural disasters (this IS Louisiana, don’t forget; I have spent too many nights and days to count that we were “out” of electricity. No air conditioning in South Louisiana after a hurricane is vomit-provoking)

Anyway, I guess what I am saying is, I almost feel guilty taking time in my day for my job that I love. But I am.  So, here goes…

The Yoga Retreat (21 Days) will be out in September.  Today on Beachbody on Demand, we had a sneak peek.  I never really check out the sneak peeks, but I was intrigued by this one because I have always been interested in yoga and have never been able to successfully complete one single “lesson” or “practice” as I’m now told.  So.Today I did!  It was amazing.  The guy who teaches it is very cool, not the kind of guy I was expecting at all.  He seems pretty Southern California, laid back, very knowledgeable and encouraging.  I started the Core Practice and complete it! I couldn’t believe it!  The moves were doable, somewhat challenging, and let me know I was working.  What I really liked was that he encouraged proper breathing and said that breathing IS the practice.  There was someone modifying and I didn’t have to look at that dude at all.  I am really excited for this to come out and I will definitely be getting it.

I am doing 22 Minute Hard Corp beginning on September 6 and I know I can incorporate the 21-Day Yoga Retreat into my day.  The Core sneak peek was just about 3o minutes and was really relaxing and centering.  Let me put it this way: as soon as I finished my 30 minutes, I immediately clicked to do this review!  And writing reviews is something I never do.

And on that note – reviews –  that is changing!  I am going to start another FB page – one devoted to my health coaching practice and Beachbody coaching.  I am 48 and badass.  I’m going to start acting like it.  I realize more and more that I have a lot to offer and I intend to do just that.  No one gets through this life unscathed and when we can grow and share, I think that’s what it’s all about, right? The idea for the new page came to me from my 16 year old daughter a couple of weeks ago.  I liked the idea when she told me.  Then, this evening, I kept pulling pair after pair of yoga/running pants out of the dryer and with each pull, I remembered things about each pair – where I got them, how long they have lasted, do people really appreciate the craftsmanship of Lululemon athletic wear?  So, I just thought it seemed completely natural that I start embracing my badassness & just start sharing.  I might even help someone! 🙂

Alright, time to go watch the triathlon on the Olympics!  Peace out.
