This morning’s yoga practice was not only much needed but it provided me an opportunity to step inside myself.  I felt like I was viewing  my life through a window which led to a few things becoming clear.  Namaste!

*Please consult with a physician or any other health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises on your own. I will do my best to give progressions and things to be cautious of as necessary.  Ideally, everyone should be screened for proper movement before starting an exercise program.gorilla

After the few workouts of metabolic conditioning last week I was in much need of a massage.  However, my massage therapist was off traveling Scotland so I was left with my foam roller.  Today though, she is back and I am excited to go for a visit.  Once again, all part of my restoration and recovery program baby!!!
