This past week for my yoga practice, I focused on the technical and strength aspects of yoga. I also took a step out of my comfort zone and instead of using a video from Yoga with Adriene, I chose to select a video from a new instructor’s channel named Sarah Beth Yoga. On her channel, there are tons of yoga videos! I am now doing intermediate vinyasa routines, so it was nice to experience practice from someone new! I went with her Full Body Yoga Flow Flow Intermediate Vinyasa Routine, and oh my goodness, did I ever feel the heat! Although the video was a short 20 minutes, I was definitely sweating by the end. One thing I liked with Sarah’s video is that all the moves felt more connected in a sense, and she also gave visual modifications if viewers were struggling with a particular pose. I am happy I tried out one of Sarah’s videos because it worked my body, to say the least, and can see myself using more of her videos soon.
This week I also thought it would be fun to make some progress update photos for myself. If you have been following me along my journey, you will see that the images I have posted below are the same photos in my post from a few weeks back, but with improved progress. I went back to the pictures I took of myself before and recreated the images with hopes to be able to see the progress that my body has been feeling. I am so happy to see how far I have come since I first started practicing yoga! As much as I do enjoy learning from online videos and practices, I have found it beneficial to also take a step back and work on my poses with the guidance of my body too. Being able to see my progress has helped me realize the passion I have gained for yoga thus far in my learning project, and how it is something I will pursue and continue into my future. Here’s to even more progress and happy moments with the weeks to come!
