R is for Rest

One of the nice things about being so busy with this whole lifestyle change is that I've been sleeping like a baby at night. Another way that I get rest is from yoga. Even though it's very active, I always feel rested afterward. This morning I went to the Advanced Class, even though I haven't done any yoga for 3 weeks and was worried if I'd even be able to do down dog. But it actually felt great! And I think that my body actually benefitted from the rest from doing yoga. I'm hoping to get to yoga classes almost every day now until we leave for San Antonio. I will SO miss the exceptional instruction at YogaSource - I doubt I'll find anything like it in my travels. But I'll be looking!

  1. Rest is a wonderful, wonderful thing. It is no wonder that far too many cultures have used sleep deprivation as a torture. It si.
    I am glad that your yoga class went well.

    1. It's one reason I teach restorative - the world is so sleep and rest deprived. There's a difference between sleep and rest, and that's where restorative yoga comes in. It allows deep "rest" and then you can sleep better! I think it's also one reason why the world is becoming such a rude place - people are tired and crabby!

  2. I don't do yoga myself, but I imagine just being to step outside the RV and do half an hour on the grass in the fresh air would be one of the benefits of travelling.

  3. Hi Melissa! I've never done yoga myself, but I've heard it can be fun to do.
