I've been a pretty bad blogger lately. I feel a little guilty for having gone an entire week without putting a post up here. But the strangest thing has come over me.
I wouldn't call it writer's block, because I have topics in mind that I want to write about.
For some odd reason, I'm suddenly feeling very intimidated by putting a post out there to the cyber world to see. What if nobody reads it? What if nobody likes it? What if no one comments? What if what if what if....
I've had this blog for almost a year, and I'm just now starting to feel this way? It's lame, I know. It's my blog and I decide what goes up on it. I just need to dive right in and really 'make it mine' instead of making it what I think other people want it to be. Starting now, I'm not going to worry "will other people find this interesting?" I'm just going to throw it out there and talk!
I hope I don't lose any followers in the process =)
Ok, now on to bloggy-type things...
I've been trying my hand (er, leg?) at yoga! I've never been to a yoga class before but have heard so many great things about it on the blogs I read. So when Living Social advertised a yoga deal, I jumped on it!
Last week was my first class. I had no idea what to expect, but I hoped I would get a good stretch from it and maybe a bit of a workout. I got both. I left feeling loose and relaxed.
This morning, I tried it again and it was meh. The difference a good teacher makes is amazing! Last week the teacher stressed poses and moves that worked the core and didn't go on and on about inner goodness and balance and yadda yadda yadda.
This morning, all the teacher could talk about was all the happiness in the world, bowing to your innate goodness, embracing mother nature and feeling the "energy" in your hands/toes/elbows, etc. There wasn't nearly as much sweat involved.
I appreciate the physical aspect of yoga and will continue to pursue the practice, but I really hope not all the teachers are as "spiritually minded" as this one was. My intent is to explore the physical science of yoga, not the spiritual one.
Next week, I'm planning to attend their "Yoga for Flexibility" class. I'm hoping it will prove to be very beneficial to my running!
Do you yoga?
If so, do you separate the philosophical from the physical?
How do you make your blog "your own?"
