The Light in me Greets the Light in you Day 1

Crosstrain: Today, this is the day, go forth, not knowing what I wall become or be doing in 108 days. I'm thankful first of all be taking this step of faith into the Ultimate Yogi zone. I'll not be alone as I have about 500 or so people on board with me. This is going to be fun. I'm not alone:) Today, I was able to open the brown package. Didn't want to because I had the worst experience in buying history. Please do not support Deep Discounts as they are beyond terrible in serving their customers. I hope this negative review doesn't get them more business but don't say I didn't tell you. Now I move forward in love and joy that the program is here. Thank you almighty. ;) I was feeling so under the dirt before the package came, then it came and I couldn't even open it. My joy had gone.:( As the day went on, I thought about how yoga is going to change me and I fear what that change will be. But yet, I'm going with it. Okay, Okay okay. I know you want to know how did it go. It went well. I was terrified because some classes I had been were a bit much, such as Bikram and Hot Power Yoga. I enjoyed the heat of the Bikram but could not see myself doing the same poses repeated, all the time. But… I still had the yoga bug on me, in me, with me. Any how the candles are light and DVD is in the mat is on the floor. Here is the beginning. yea, it ain't pretty, cute or cool. But it's me. On the mat. Thank you Yariv for being there for me as I waited and for the encouragement that I am going to get out of this program with the group on FaceBook. So, I couldn't do a few things and that is to be expected. I just kept reminding myself, breath through movement. Breathe, exhale, don't hold your breath. I don't have to be perfect just perfect for my body. So, that thing, you know, that pose where you try to grab your left hand with your right hand, while your leg is bent… boy was that fun.. I I think I was grabbing my thigh. My hands were no where near talking to each other:) Now that should have been a picture. The balancing was not so bad. Quite a bit unsteadiness but definitely more steady in the left leg. The left arm under right and touch your hands, I'll have to learn this names, but not now. My left hand could only grab my wrist. Did better the other way around. I love breathing into my rhomboids though. Oh ya, that was good. I did not get to the second DVD as I thought I was done. I was done. I couldn't do any more, given the mood, etc. All these things to make a difference in your practice. So, I'll do it tomorrow and I'll be READY!!!!!! Yes, yoga is for me.

Hi there! I'm also doing the program, I will be on Day 72 this coming Saturday. Keep up the good work. The first two weeks is the hardest. at least for me. Although, I wanted to mention that you may want to blur out your address on your package, because when I opened it I could read it. Don't want any stalkers. You will feel amazing. I have lost inches all over my body. You will do awesome. Just listen to your body.

Hi Anonymous. thank you. I don't know how to blur it out. I can't even see it. Didn't think of that. can you email me so I can thank you personally for reading my blog. I know it was a bit long but that's just the beginning of me spilling my guts.

I love the self-deprecating, humorous honesty of this post. I was intrigued by the fear you're feeling about what changes you may experience doing the program. What are you imagining? I know MY fears, but I'm fascinated to know what others fear might be the results of doing yoga :)

Cheryl S said...

The fear is not knowing. From what I've read, things happen, Like the person has no control of. I don't like not being in control of me. so, I fear what will it be. How will I know. the change. If any.

Hey there Cheryl S. I would have answered sooner about the address blurring out. I know you'll have to take the picture down to do the blurring, and use the application paint, and then "paint" over it by pressing the brushes icon, and then just brushing it out. Unfortunately, I don't know of other ways, I'm not really sure. Maybe, someone could help you out better than I did. I hoped that helped.

Keep up the good work, the first week is the hardest.
