Returning To My Mat- Reconnecting To My Body- Day 319: 365 Radical Self Love Project

After a 3 week hiatus of healing the body I finally got to return to my yoga mat today!!!

It felt so incredible to be back in the yoga studio, soaking up all the amazing feel good vibes and really getting present with my body.

These three weeks of pretty intense self reflection and stillness have had a profound impact on my practice. I found it so much easier today to tune into my body and really feel into my muscles and be clear where I was holding tension. I also found it much easier today to relax into the posture and begin surrendering into the posture and releasing the tension in my muscles.

Not surprising my shoulders, hips and side body were the tightest and after an hour long practice I felt completely intune and aligned in my body. I am grateful for this time away from my mat as it has really made me appreciate how much my body is responsive to my yoga practice.

I’m so happy to be back in the studio and so so so happy to be tuned in and back in full swing with my yummy yoga practice.

Feeling pretty blessed and very grateful ❤

Setting The Tone for Success Weekend Style- Day 182: 365 Radical Self Love Project

I used to have a ritual a few years ago of going to hot yoga every Friday night. It was my way of unwinding from the week, getting a great workout in and balancing out my energies.

I also observed it held another major function to my development of self love. Doing an activity that was high vibing, healthy and spiritually connected, set the tone for my weekend.

The way it used to be

self-care-habitI totally used to be the party girl, who was out dancing and drinking every single weekend. Lets clear up right away there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, however, it didn’t really create the foundation or environment for my creativity to thrive or my energies to evolve and expand. It did the opposite.

So without even making that connection one Friday I finished work and headed to the yoga studio and rocked a hot class. The interesting thing about doing something that high intensity is afterwards I only wanted to put high vibing energies into my body, which meant a super healthy dinner and relaxing with people I loved.

The impact of conscious change

I also noticed it had a huge impact on the way I spent my weekends. Entering the weekend in a space of clarity, high vibes and healthy made me want to keep it up. So gradually as I practiced this new Friday night ritual my weekends became more constructive, I found I was more creative, more inspired and had way more energy to spend really connecting with the people I love.

Setting the tone for success

As part of my new commitment to health I noticed today that my Friday night ritual has returned without me giving conscious thought to it. As I was in my early evening hot yoga class I realized just the impact of setting up my weekend in this way, and ultimately setting myself up for success buy investing my energies into a healthy and soul nurturing activity.

Tonight I acknowledge myself for my commitment to my health and for coming back to this incredible ritual which feeds my soul. It feels so good to be in this space of filling up my tank and soulfully investing into myself.

With loads of love and high vibes I wish all of you an incredible weekend ahead full of beautiful blessings and happiness!
