Yoga has been one of the most important tools I have used to manage my chronic illness, I love it and it has done wonders for me. I have a really hard time relaxing by myself, so yoga helps me do that with the added benefit of stretching and using my muscles in a gentle way. I tell people all the time about how wonderful yoga is and how they should try it, but I have a confession to make, I have fallen off the yoga wagon.
I’m a Mom and a sick one at that, so my free time is very limited and very carefully managed. Lately I’ve just been feeling too tired to do yoga. I have to wait until both my kids are asleep since I definitely can not relax when they are awake (my daughter doesn’t ever stop talking and my son thinks it is funny to jump on me, not relaxing). So yeah, I fell off the yoga wagon and haven’t done it in a while, but yesterday my son was miraculously napping so I decided to do a few minutes. In recent years I have done my yoga off what has been available on netflix, I’ve found several that I like. What I found out yesterday was that they had gotten rid of all their yoga movies! Boy was I POed. I own a few of my own, but I like the netflix options better. I sent a text my husband to complain about the indignity of netflix getting rid of my yoga routines (there may or may not have been some angry words directed towards said company). After I text him and my anger subsided I thought, “wow, this is really a first world problem, poor me I can’t get the yoga routines I used to. Some people actually have real problems, I’m such a brat!” That put things in a better perspective for me. With that said, apparently I need to buy a yoga DVD. Anyone have one that they like?
