Wow. What a beautiful post!!!
Happy birthday to your dear daughter. How proud you must be of all she has accomplished! She’s lucky to have you as her mom. We’re lucky to have you as a loving leader!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

26 years ago I gave birth to my dear daughter, who now is preparing herself for a month in Manhattan to attend a summer class with the Manhattan Opera Studio. So proud of her. She is also performing on May 17 in the Gilbert and Sullivan Gala here in Houston. So just wanted to share this info, and mentioned that I'm very grateful for having her and for leading this Yoga Lovers Team and having you all in my life!!! emoticon

Hi Team,
I'm back in town and back to yoga. Tonight's practice at the gym was just right (13 of 12 for my April intention)
Tomorrow I will get in my last few road miles for April to meet my goal.
I continue to meditate and pray every morning.

Namaste everyone.

We also have a guy that plays a Native American flute at the end of class (one of the participants). He's quite talented, and it's very meditative and peaceful!

I'm up to 18 days of yoga and 25 days of meditation for April.

Patricia, we have fewer men than women as well, about the same proportions as you stated here too.
Thank you for the "healthy hips" article!!!!!

Tonight I went to a very vigorous class at the gym. (12 of 12 for my intention) I'm tired so I really had to pace myself and listen to my body.

I just got back from San Diego (2 days of babysitting) and tomorrow I fly out to Sacramento to visit my dear aunt. I'll be gone the rest of the week so I'll see you all next week.

Namaste everyone!

16 days of yoga, 22 days of meditation so far for April.

I'm happy to see my Budokon class getting more popular, and with men and women. Maybe the martial arts influence?

Hope you all had a nice Easter! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks MCCALI59 and KAYOTIC for your kind words!

In the Method Pilates only women, although I know, there are men but they come to the evening classes in Yoga unfortunately always in minority 2-3 men and 6-8 women

emoticon To your husband, Punchie, 70 is a nice milestone!

I'm up to 20 days of meditation, will be 14 days of yoga after today (incentive to get in a home practice!).

I was noticing at Budokon the other day we were 6 men and 6 women practicing in the class, (and the instructor), seemed like a nice balance. For those that practice at studios, do you notice this?

Thank you Patricia! Hope you are having a blessed week!

In a few hours I’m headed to the gym for a practice. (11 of 12). I bashed my rt baby toe and it is purple and swollen and very sore. So I will be careful when I practice. I’ve broken my baby toes so many times. It always makes me appreciate them!!!

KAYOTIC bravo you can do the Budokon on your own!! daily meditation fantastic! office yoga very interesting!

LESLIESENIOR the" poses considered for older people" are very common in many sequences for Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin Yoga, so we probably practice them very often. Glad to hear that your shoulder is getting stronger. Shoulder stand is a very nice addition. I also do Plow in tandem with Shoulder stand and bridge, my back feels good...Fantastic daily meditation and prayer.

Wonderful Patricia!

Awesome Kay!

Last night's practice at the gym focused on standing poses....tree pose, half moon, warrior 3, tiny dancer etc. My legs are "speaking" to me today! (6 of 12)
Tonight I did the poses for "old people" (ha ha) that Patricia is referring to and I added shoulder stands. I held 3 shoulder stands for 1 min. each. I'm so grateful that my shoulder getting stronger and stronger. (7 of 12)

Meditation and prayer every morning for min. of 15 minutes is on track.

I'm ahead on my walking miles due to beautiful weather here in CA.

Namaste everyone!!!!!

Patricia, the article recommended Tadasana, Uttanasana (forward fold), Down dog, Warrior 1, Seated forward fold, Balasana (Child's pose), seated bound angle, one legged wind release pose (I did Happy Baby), Cobra Pose, and Shavasana.

Just got back from a great practice at the gym. The teacher stressed modifications and learning how to go to your own edge without straining. We did many vinyasa flows and some good yin poses. I feel invigorated. (5 of 12)

Thanks for always being so supportive and encouraging. The Yin practice was an hour. I just love Yin.
This afternoon I read an article on yoga for women over 60. So so many benefits for our aging bodies. 10 poses were suggested for every day practice. I did them as a sequence 3 times. We had a full weekend with kids and grand kids so it was a perfect practice (3 of 12)

Opportunities for gratitude surround us daily, it's good to recognize them!

I'm up to 7 days of meditation, and 5 days of yoga, got my office yoga in on Friday. It's only 5 minutes, but a nice break in the day!

April 5: 3/12 Hot Vinyasa Flow, AJ Gutierrez, at Black Swam, one hour
April 5: 3/12 day 9 Chopra Meditation, Gratitude, 19 min

New Yoga Studio, this one had the room at 90 degrees, quite interesting to do Yoga in this kind of environment. The instructor very nice took his time to explain the poses without rushing but without being too slow. I talked to him after the class to get some pointers for the balance in crescent moon, warrior 3, eagle, tree pose and dance pose, which we did in the class and I failed to get them. He in fact helped me with eagle in my left foot during the class. I will take another class with him if the opportunity arises. This studio is by donation per class. The instruction was so good that I felt bad to have donated the minimum amount of $ 10.00.

Interesting Chopra Meditation about the importance of gratitude in our lives. It reminds me of our thread "what are you grateful for ... today". Indeed there many things to be grateful for...I'm grateful for this Yoga Lovers Team ...for instance... for you LESLIESENIOR, KAYOTIC, KELLIBEAN, MCCALI59 for sharing your experiences, for learning from you...

KELLIEBEAN Excellent reflection many times we focus in the "what should I do" instead of "what I want to achieve", the clue is indeed there, what do you want for yourself, to grow your practice, to feel in better mood and flexible ?

thanks for sharing this important focus....

Great LESLIESENIOR to practice Yin Yoga, how long is your practice? Yin and Restorative are very slow pace but very nurturing as you mentioned.

KAYOTIC good idea to practice yoga for the office, some muscles will thank you for releasing the stress and tension.

April 3: 2/12 Yoga Basics, Angie Fanelli, one hour, slower pace, focusing in achieving the poses with good breathing technique

Goooooooood morning! I've been going back and forth about what I want to do this month. So I sat down and thought about what I want to achieve instead of "what should I do".

I would like to handle work stress with more grace than frustration and I'd like to build strength using yoga. The other night, coming up from a low lunge into warrior one, I was a bit wobbly.

So I'm meditating 2 - 5 minutes first thing in the morning with powerful mantras.

I will also do at least two yoga workout each week that build strength.

April 2: 1/12 Restorative Yoga, Madonna, 1 hour...delicious...

April 2: day 7 Chopra Meditation, 19 min...calming

I also had Method Pilates yesterday with a new instructor, who happen to be the owner of the studio, she was quite friendly and caring. I'm amazed every week , the sequences have been different and the whole body is worked out.

Lucky me, Madonna is also the co-owner of the Atrium Yoga Studio and she is also caring and friendly. Would it be true that: When one is ready we meet the instructor........

Bravo LESLIESENIOR , good intentions!!!

Bravo KAYOTIC, good intentions!!!

Have a great Wednesday!

Let's set our goals/intentions/resolutions for the new month.

Let's deepen our Yoga and Meditation practice!

You can have calmness of mind at all times by the practice of yoga. You can have restful sleep. You can have increased energy, vigour, vitality, longevity, and a high standard of health. You can turn out efficient work within a short space of time. You can have success in every walk of life.
