Gratitude from A to Z: Yoga

I am grateful for yoga. Grateful that my body is still able to move, stretch and balance. Grateful for the focus that yoga provides, the mat a refuge from the busy-ness of life - a time to pause, breathe, move and meditate mindfully. A time just to be.

It can be difficult to fit yoga into my day. I'm not sure why that is - why am I often unable to make time to do things like yoga that have such a positive impact? Procrastination is certainly part of it - easier to sit and read or write rather than get up and move. But the benefits of movement are so many.

I am grateful for yoga and the ability to move. My intention is to make yoga and movement part of every day.

    I am doing aquafit and hoping to walk on the treadmill when I don't although this year is good for clear walkways for the most part. Planning to do something outside even in the rain when summer (or at least fall) reappears briefly on Friday! All of them depend heavily on rolling out of bed and starting before I have time to think. Thinking and/or coffee first and chances are slim that any activity will occur and I will sink into a little (or not so little!) heap of wrinkled flesh and tapping fingers in front of the computer screen (yes, old school - no iPhone or tablet for me!) I often THINK of yoga....
