Week 2: Letting Go of Expectations

Week 2! 6 more weeks to go!

I don’t know where, what, or how to start this recap of week two of my yoga training.  To be honest, it started out pretty rough. My body was sore, I was exhausted, I wasn’t eating enough food, I was getting enough sleep, and felt like I was a ping pong ball running all over Boston trying to wake up for a morning hot yoga class, hop on the train to make it to work on time, leave work to take another yoga class in the evenings, or go to trainings until late, get home, pack my life away for the next day, sleep for what feels like 1 minute and then start the continued saga again.  I wasn’t listening to my body and actually giving it the rest that is calling and craving. I felt too guilty to take a break and stop, eventually causing me to hit a hall on Monday- just the beginning of the week! Unwilling I decided to give myself Monday and Tuesday off from yoga to catch up on meal prepping, getting to work on time, sleep (even though that didn’t happen) and mentally refocusing my energy. Needless to say it was the best decision and the week ended so strong.
