It's been far too long since I've posted. I suppose it's been partly due to the fact that I was in Southeast Asia for a month, but also due not in small part to guilt. Guilt that I've once again completely ignored my yoga practice.

Since returning from SE Asia, I've been maintaining a once-a-week practice. If that can be called 'maintaining'. And every time I walk away from class, I find myself so relieved and thankful that I went -- wishing that I went more often, even everyday. Missing the feeling of my body being open and receptive. Feeling the strength building in my muscles.

I'm stuck. After 6 years of practice, I'm not evolving. Because my practice is so irregular, my progress is minimal. I'll make obvious strides one class, but then lose it because somehow I won't practice. There's no continuity, and there's certainly no discipline.

So, this has inspired me to challenge myself. 30 days of yoga. No more excuses. I want my practice to move forward. I think my body will thank me.

I'll let you know how it goes...
