Woke up with an achy back and tight hip flexors so went to my favorite yoga class at The Healing Triad in Bloomingdale. I enjoy this class so much because unlike other forms of exercise out there, it's a welcoming environment with no judgement. Not that the other ladies in class nor Beth the instructor care if I make it all the way through without sitting but I am a competitive person pushing myself beyond my limits most days. Today was different though as I decided to be grateful for what I COULD do instead of beating myself up about what I couldn't do. At the end of class in savasana, Beth reminds us to silently thank ourselves for taking the time and effort to get to our yoga practice which is a life lesson that would be helpful for me on a daily basis. It's better to "show up" for yourself, do the best you can and be grateful for what you can accomplish rather than avoid exercise or any activity because you might not be as good as others.
