Back to Zen

Last night, I returned to hot yoga class after a couple week absence. It felt oh so good.

I could say that an increased work load was to be blame, but really, I had stopped making myself a priority. One day last week I found myself staring at my computer screen for 30 minutes, barely able to concentrate on any work because I was so fried. That’s when I knew I needed to shift my priorities.

Most instructors at the yoga studio I frequent begin class by guiding us through setting an intention for the class. We seal that intention through a series of rhythmic breaths. My intention last night? Setting boundaries.

I’m still feeling the mind-centering effects. Ommm.
