Sunday yoga: Day 4 on Monday!

Okay okay, so I’m late again! It’s not my fault, I spent my weekend re-decorating my room, preparing it for the new year and my room was a hot mess. I had absolutely no time to do yoga on Sunday. It smelled of paint and my yoga stuff was thrown in a pile of somethings and everything. So I just finished my session and now I’m sharing it with you. I’m also debating whether I just want to start doing each session consecutively every night and post them on Sundays or just leave it as is. I’m not sure yet, let me know what you guys think.

So this week, I can’t believe I’m even into it this far already but it’s day four! Day four focuses on the back–stretching it and relieving any tension which is great after moving furniture around and painting my room. It’s like Adrienne knew I’d get motivated to change my room around this weekend. So here it is Day 4 (also, you can see that I’m starting to get the hang of posting the actual video and embedding it properly…I’m happy right now)

Okay, so let me share my experience with you!

Before my session:

To be honest, I’ve been feeling lazy AF! I don’t know if it’s because of the weather or because I feel like hibernating but I haven’t actually been working out as much, I go for walks everyday for a few hours but that’s about it. I have been having difficulties with breathing and feeling faint so I haven’t been wanting to go full out with them. I’m planning to go see the doctor soon just because it got pretty bad the other day at the mall. Aside from feeling off, I also was super exhausted from painting my room and moving furniture around in my room. I had a few tight spots in the lower back/glute area.

During my session:

I wanted to quit! Those tight spots were really getting to me, but I kept going and focused on being more gentle towards those areas but still getting a good stretch. Breathing was definitely better and I didn’t find myself feeling faint. It felt really nice to do this, especially those downward dogs released tightness in my calves.

After my session:

I felt good. I definitely think I need to stretch a lot more frequently. I do love the feeling of being so stretched out and elongating that spine. I plan to spend most of my week in school next semester and volunteering so I want to make sure that my spine doesn’t lose strength and stays healthy. Plus I love feeling taller even if I’m still only 5’0 ft.

Something random:

If anyone has any tips of yoga wear for a noob that would be great!
