Goodbye Ordinary

Day 2: Better than coffee.

Posted on: April 2, 2013

Ahhhhhh. <<that was a sigh of sweet, sweet contentment. Not to be confused with AHHHHH!!!

Morning yoga. Enough said for those that practice it, especially for those who were at this morning’s revitalizing prana filled class at MSY.

I just have to admit that when I got to class (which was full btw and I almost had a panic that: MAN, IF i WAS ANY LATER I COULD HAVE MISSED OUT ON MAT SPACE AND BE AWAKE FOR NOTHING!) I had only been awake for 20 minutes… and I have a 12 minute drive. I got out of bed at 5:50, already dressed in my yoga garb with a bag packed. Brushed my teeth, donned my shoes and was shocked that it was FREEZING and my car was dusted in this ridiculous white stuff they like to call “snow”. In April, I would rather call it GONE. >.<

So it began…

Navasana in my morning yoga practice? Hell yes. I’m almost thinking that is something I need every morning, full practice or not. I freaking LOVE navasana. Today it wasn’t even a nod to navasana… which always bums me out. It was a full on, million breath with khapalabati, OMG I’M HAVING A SEIZURE AND MY CORE IS SCREAMING, navasana; which of course meant it was followed immediately with heaven.

I can only think of one thing in the world that compares to the bliss after navasana…

Let me go on a tangent quick, and just make part of the record that I’m sitting at my desk, it’s 8:21 am, and I haven’t started drinking my daily single cup of coffee yet. Guess what is on my face? A smile. Ha. I completely forgot that it was possible for the muscles in my face to act in such a manner before either 10am or coffee. Boy, do I love to be surprised like that.

My face. Right. Now. No make up. Flushed cheeks. Alive. 😀

Now that I got distracted (actually working and all), I can’t remember where I was going before the tangent, so I’ll just recap by saying that Day 2 was awesome. I feel better than I do when I roll out of bed at 7:25, run out of the door by 7:42 and get to work slightly late at 8:03… and I was to work EARLY. woooot.

My body feels revitalized and worked just the right amount to be able to feel like I’m actually alive in this body instead of just existing. It’s so refreshing and I am setting the intention to keep my smile as much as possible throughout my day.

Until tomorrow,

This is amazeballs.

Thank you! And you, my dear teacher, are amazeballs too! 😀

I had to giggle while re-reading it… My ADD was showing a bit. whoops!

Good for you! I do my morning practice but have yet to go to a class 😦 there are none where I live…but I am so glad that you were able to attend. Your face says it all 🙂 m.

thanks! Most of the time, I only make it to class once a week, but April, our yogamama does a challenge that’s all 30 days and she is a rockstar and teaches 70 classes in that time period! Last year (my first time) I made it to 29/30, which was a bummer because I caught a stomach virus. Ugh. This year I’m really shooting for 30!
