Now the yoga begins

Today’s office yoga has included:

  • a series of seated cat-cow in my desk chair;
  • a long held seated cobra;
  • a long held downward dog using my filing cabinet as a prop (rather than going all the way to the floor);
  • mountain both seated and standing as I needed some grounding;
  • breaks for pranayama of varying lengths; and
  • as much ahimsa as I can muster in any given moment.

So often I get down on myself for not taking time to do a long practice on the mat every day, which makes me feel like I’m not practicing at all. Maybe I need to catalogue my office yoga like this more often to remind myself that yoga doesn’t only take place on my mat.

As Anna reminds us those of us doing the Curvy Monthly program: Now the yoga begins – right now, in this moment, wherever you are – without judgement, without shame for what went before.
