Day # 28 Reveling In The Transformation (Part 1)

Part 1: The physical aspect of change 

In the beginning of this 30 day challenge, I shared my goals.

I said, “I would concentrate on two aspects of my yoga practice; 1)consistently using breath to move me into, through, and out of each posture and  2) exercise acceptance and curiosity in each pose, in any given moment.”

I posted photos of the poses ( the photos above inside the studio) I was choosing to use to monitor my progress. 

Due to the pain I felt in my shoulders, elbows, hips and knees, my mobility was limited.

Because I excercised acceptance and curiosity, I found where I held my breath, and created resistance in certain postures. This resistance generated muscle tension and strain.

Being committed everyday has helped me to improve my overall focus and flexibility, as well as altering the depth of my stretch in the postures.

I have also notice, the level of pain in my hips, knees, elbows and shoulders is almost non-existent.

In Part 2, I will share with you the non-physical affects I have notice as a result of this challenge.
