Today is a day that we remember those who gave their lives for the freedom we hold most dear in America. Many people take this weekend to enjoy barbecues and family gatherings while forgetting the reason we have this three day weekend. Many men and women gave their lives for us to live with many freedoms we take for granted everyday. Some of those include freedom of speech, right to a fair trial, and the right to an education. In some parts of the world, you don’t get these rights or freedoms. Yet, in America we have them today thanks to those who served. Remember all gave some, some gave all this Memorial Day

Going Back to Yoga

May be an image of indoor

For the first time in over a year I was (finally) able to return to yoga. I have been going to the same studio for the past seven years now since I started practicing. I started going back two weeks ago two weeks after I got my first vaccine. I thought it would be hard, but it wasn’t. For the past year I found it very difficult to practice at home because there were so many distractions. I did what I could to keep up, sadly, it wasn’t as easy as I thought. During my first practice in fourteen months I found that I have to rebuild certain muscles and flexibility for poses that I love like crow and bird of paradise. The fact that I was able to go back to yoga two weeks ago is a bright sign that things are, finally, going back to normal. Hopefully, this normal is here to stay things move on up from there.
