Day 7: 6:30pm w/Valerie
So excited to finish off week 1 strong and that I did!!! The class was full as usual, but I was able to snag my comfort spot in the 2nd row near the door on the right of the room. However, room got really hot real fast and I found myself yearning for a bit of cool air either from the fans or the space under the wood doors. Fans did come on a few times, but no cool air slipping thru the door since those bean bag thingy were like weights glued to the door tonight =(
Completed my postures with determination and focus. Especially during half moon pose since I was silently preaching "love handles be gone" repeatedly to myself!!! I really focused on my form the entire class instead of depth and got right back into it when I fell out of a pose. Valerie gave out such strong energy and it was nice to feel that energy. I believe the few goals I have for this challenge are to hold all postures for the entire duration and not take a seat throughout class.
I have now been drinking a cup of water with a teaspoon of the Himalayan Pink Salt Sole added every morning that was recommended by Ching and I am definitely not having dehydration problems. I am still putting Emergen-C in my yoga water bottle and drinking skim milk and fresh juices, but I feel that the sole solution is helping me with my energy in the latter half of my classes. I'm usually pretty drained when standing series is completed, but these pass few days have been very different. I'm sure my consistent practice the last week had something to do with the additional energy too, but I can't help to think that the sole mixture played a vital role as well. Whatever it may be, I'm feeling stronger and this is definitely welcomed!! Until the next post....namaste <3
