Leaving the gym. Feeling #grateful
that I got off my ass and did something positive in this gloomy weather.
Truth is #depression
came to visit last night. Partly hormonal, partly circumstantial. Movement becomes hard when this happens, even the smallest budge. It's called #psychomotorretardation
So yeah! Dorky #egomaniac
(?) selfie outside the gym in the #community
where I grew up! No shame, #justlove
for myself and everyone in there - even the crabby receptionist!
Best thing about it was I squeezed in a 25 minute work out and I did this in farmers jeans. It felt more like I was communing with myself than running game up with the juiceheads that run squats in front of the mirrors. Love the #independence
(elliptical machine - warrior 1 with psoas stretch - bind - shoulder stretches - hamstring stretches - pull-ups - wide squats - machines: triceps, quads, pecs x2 - quad stretch on bench into half moon backbend - more pull ups - downward dog - handstand - forearm stand - OUT IN 25mins!!
Then in the sauna, I continued to quietly commune with myself, doing half lotus sitting forward bend and abdominal massage. I try to go inward as much as I can and not make a spectacle of myself. Next time I open my eyes literally everyone else in the sauna is doing some kind of movement practice. It's a delightful thing to witness myself as the reason why others move to increase their well-being. It really motivates me to #keepgoingforward
This kind of thing reinforces my desire and motivation and intuition to teach yoga. Love to everyone who has taken the time to read 🙌🏽
