emoticon Sorry for your loss, Leslie, it sounds like you and your sister support each other, it's good to have that kind of relationship between siblings.

The aerial yoga was not bad, height-wise, the bottom of the silk is about hip height, so you can feel supported during downdog, standing up in it for tree felt very supportive, but I imagine that could be iffy for someone who is fearful of heights. I loved it!

I missed one day of yoga so far, so I'm at 26 days of yoga, 27 days of meditation for May.

The gym I do yoga at is supposed to open on the 1st, but I don't think they will be doing the group classes yet, it will be nice to have it open though, it's right next to work, so I can run in and use the shower before work!

Thank you Patricia. You put a smile on my face.

I did Zoom yoga this morning with my instructor. She did twists with props if we had them. I used sand bags and blocks. It was just what I needed. I have noticed that after 4 days of carrying the 1 month old, my back muscles are much stronger and my shoulders feel better. They have left to go back to San Diego, but I will keep doing my old exercises from PT after my shoulder surgery. I have another Zoom yoga practice in 2 hours with my other instructor. She is finishing up the chakras.....today is the crown chakra. Friday we will have a discussion after some writing on prompts she sends us. (17 & 18 of 20)

I'm caught up on my monthly walking miles.

I've been meditating and praying constantly and daily. Issues exploded with my biological family. Some tragic and very sad endings that I will mention here because I trust you all. My mom passed away Saturday morning. She is at peace from a very tumultuous and sad life that she created. My sister and I are healing together, as we have done for years. We are full of gratitude to have one another.
Peace and Namaste to you all. This team is such a big part of my healing and gratitude.

LESLIESENIOR doing Yoga with your grandson sounds awesome! Enjoy

KAYOTIC aerial yoga looks interesting, I think one should not be afraid of heights though.

Would the goats behave? that is the question....

Two more practices 16/15, one Vinyasa with Bret Larkin , 25 min and one my own mostly supine and seated poses, twists, 18 min, and 2 Chopra Meditation 18 min

We did it again This morning and it was more like goat yoga. He sat on my back when I did child’s pose and forward fold (sort of Yin) and thought down dog was an opportunity to sit under me like a tent and drive his cars through like a bridge. Really fun!!! (16 of 20)

Yoga today was with my 2 year old grandson. Oldest son, new baby, dil and 2 yo are here visiting and getting our help for a few more days so no Zoom yoga. But Liam and I rolled out mats and did happy baby, down dog, puppy dog, seal, childs pose, and forward fold. He thought it was so much fun and I got in a bit of a practice. (15 of 20)

I have done aerial yoga, (and I do miss it!) I loved the feeling of the support of the silks...

Goat yoga might be fun, as long as the goats behave themselves! They sure are cute!

I couldn’t agree more with this Patricia. If I don’t expand my inner peace while on my mat I will not reap the full benefits of the asanas.

Thanks KAYOTIC and LESLIESENIOR, . Fantastic Yoga and Meditation practices you too dear friends!


2 more yoga and meditation practices , one zoom 60 min Yin Yoga and one my own 18 min Vinyasa. 2 Meditation from The Atrium 20 min 14/15


According to Judith Hanson Lasater:" Yoga is about our inner experience; it's about connecting with our inner life."

"Many come to asana practice in order to become more flexible," notes Judith. "Much more important, however, is learning to be adaptable and to let life flow through you."

What an awesome instructor LESLIESENIOR! a role model! Great 60 and something Yoga practices and Meditation. Best wishes.

KAYOTIC fantastic Yoga and Meditations practices. I love what you said, many of us do what we can... in my book that is the purpose of our practices: commitment for a better us


4 more practices, 2 zoom -60 min(Vinyasa from Delicias, Chihuahua, Mexico and Restorative from Auckland, New Zealand),one Bret Larkin, 15 min (Vinyasa) and one my own, 18 min (Hatha), 4 Meditation from The Atrium in Houston. It is incredible to be able to connect with studios in different parts of the world. 12/15 so far

Last week it was the course about the Niyamas, it was interesting and inspiring, next June 1 maybe I'll join one about the Sutras. Learning more about what Yoga's origin and the code of conduct behind it are, help me to be a better yoga practitioner...

Today is the 60th daily Zoom yoga class that my instructor has made available to us all. She doesn’t ask for donations but some of us have voluntarily given to a dog rescue facility she likes. She’s 76 years old and has been doing and teaching yoga for 50 years. I’m so grateful for her dedication to us all.
I’m am headed to practice in a few minutes. (12 of 20)
I’m struggling with ongoing biological family issues so meditation and prayer continue to be valuable tools. My life, my husband, kids, grand kids, and friends are all doing well. For that I am full of gratitude!!

2 different yoga practices today on Zoom. One teacher focused on standing poses.
The other practice was teaching about the 3rd eye chakra. Tomorrow we follow up with a discussion on some prompts we were given to write about (9 & 10 of 20)

Meditation every morning (if not more).

Walking miles almost caught up.

Hi Yoga Lovers,
I did a great Zoom yoga practice this morning. Our teacher focused on pranayama breathing. It was just what I needed. (8 of 20)

LESLIESENIOR I appreciate your words, but I have so much respect for all of you for keeping this team alive and going that you deserve always my attention, and when I can't for some reason or another I feel bad. Thanks for your understanding. I hope you keep calm and find the strength to deal with whatever is in your plate and find contentment in having your family close.
Best wishes.

KAYOTIC hope you have found the way to contentment, your yoga and meditation are incredible!

7/15 my own sequence, mostly supine poses and twists yesterday May 11, about 18 min, Meditation at the Atrium 20 min. Today I'll zoom for a Restorative class at The Atrium, 60 min and Meditation as well 20 min. The Restorative class ends with Yoga Nidra, so relaxing....that will be 8/15

Sounds like a fun visit Leslie!

I'm up to 10 days of meditation, 9 days of yoga. We're going for a bike ride in a bit, maybe outdoor yoga before? If not, I'll get in a practice when we get home, my WOD yesterday has made my glutes and triceps a bit sore!

Thank you Patricia! The kids and grands left yesterday. We are tired but very happy. They will probably return every 3 weeks or so as they need respite.
My grandson and I had one “session” where we did happy baby, child’s pose, forward fold, chair pose, starfish etc He thought that was great fun. So I’m counting that as a practice.
I did zoom this morning. (4 & 5 of 20)
Surprisingly I got a lot of walking miles in pacing with the 2 week old. Yay!

that's nice that you can be a shelter from the quarantine storm for your son and his family! How nice to have 3 acres so they can spread out a bit!

I'm at 6 days of meditation this morning, 5 days of yoga. I may try to listen to my office yoga today, it's been a while!

Zoom yoga this afternoon focused on the throat chakra. (3 of 20)
My son, dil, new baby and 2 yo grandson decided to come up from San Diego to stay the week. We are all quarantined so they felt safe. Their small apartment was closing in and the 2 yo was really struggling with months of no outside time and a new little sister. We have 3 acres and lots of room to run.
My yoga practice will be on pause but we are giving them love and support, home cooked meals and some time to relax a bit.

I still meditate every morning.

Namaste to you all.

Creative togetherness sounds like a plan! I may have to put some thought into that, as I've been a bit grumpy and short tempered with my partner of late. He's working on some seemingly never ending projects and it's getting under my skin a bit. So I'll have to think on that.

I am up to 3 days of yoga/meditation for the month, not a bad start!

Keep safe and well in all our different states!

Today zoom yoga was a theme again, swing dancing. We learned/practiced some steps and then did yoga that involved swinging and swaying. Fun. (2 of 20)
(I did zoom yesterday too)

Meditating and breathing a lot lately to keep centered as my husband and I stay creative with our togetherness.

Nevada is still not open, but we are starting slowly with scheduling some elective procedures at the hospital that had been put off, patients have to be tested 72 hours prior to the procedure, no symptoms (that's generally true anyway) so we'll see what happens. I know we really flattened the curve with the stay at home, and face masks in public areas (this is voluntary in NV, and while I do see a lot of folks wearing masks, there are also a few that aren't.)

My goals are the same as they have been, I'll be counting my practices...so far 2 days of yoga/meditation for May!

Hi yoga lovers.
Here in CA we are still under stay-at-home orders. I appreciate that our governor and big city mayors have been conservative and protective and relying on data and science. Opening up will be slow (although we have protestors at beaches and state parks etc). We will be staying in except for walks, doctor appts, pharmacy etc. But people are getting restless. I pray that all the progress we have made in getting and keeping things somewhat under control will not be wasted. But I will only control my own actions. Luckily my 3 boys and families are following mitigation procedures as well in San Diego and Riverside. They are fortunate to all work from home. (4 in education, 2 work for Comic-Con) All my friends and neighbors are staying in.
I pray for safety for all!!! I donate to food banks and women’s shelters. Such a helpless feeling.

My May yoga goals will be:
-meditation daily-minimum 10 minutes.
-20 yoga practices minimum- Zoom Hatha, yin, restorative. I will focus on shoulder strengthening.
-continue chakra work with one of my instructors. We are on the heart chakra with Zoom practice on Tuesdays followed by journaling and group Zoom discussion on Fridays
-40-50 miles walking on property or on the wash (with mask if out)

Namaste everyone!!!!!

Sending good thoughts for Texas. Here in Illinois we are still at home until the end of May but they are letting some businesses open back up, mandatory masks in public, like going to the store etc.

It's still ok to get out for walks and runs.

I'm planning on yoga sessions at least twice a week and two mediation sessions per week. I got started today with Yoga With Adriene's May calendar, yoga for transitions and then a ten minute meditation video.

Ready for a new commitment with your yoga and meditation practice? Let's do it! Zoom has been a silver lining for the stay-at-home situation. See what May bring, here in Texas, tonight at 11:59 pm stay-at-home order ends. Still my family and I will remain at home until there will be more testing and lower risk of infection. A colleague of my husband this morning started with shortness of breath, she works at The Texas Children Hospital and went to work on Monday and Tuesday, because hospitals were re-opened last Wednesday, so now she is sick... no safe indeed....Take care, stay safe everyone
