As you know, I have returned to the practice of yoga this fall. If you look at the yoga practice link at the top of the blog you can see some of the places where I have been practicing. As I have traveled this fall I have looked for studios and have experienced several wonderful teachers.
I am still working to establish a regular practice again. I am getting there but I am also still swimming and working on strength work with Sam. I have not been on my bike in weeks and I don’t think I have run a single step since Augusta. Racing and triathlon currently hold little interest for me. That may change and I may want to race again. I am uncertain what will happen, however.
Yoga is teaching me patience with my body that is not quite as flexible as I would like it to be. Some days are better than others and I see small signs of progress. But there is no timeline in yoga. Learning and becoming comfortable is poses takes as long as it takes. I am also practicing release and quieting my mind that is often overburdened with a list of things to do and interrupted too frequently by email and other demands of technology. I have been struggling to write about what I am learning by returning to my yoga practice. I am finding challenges and peace in my practice. I am finding that I am willing to accept where I am more readily and not be competitive with those who are more advanced in their practice. I am sure that I will find a way to share more as my practice develops.
