MYF Workshop: Yoga For Athletes
Fun Fact Friday:
Top benefit from a regular yoga practice?
While it's difficult to pin point one benefit from my yoga practice, I would have to say that without yoga being an integral part of my life, I would not be a runner. My yoga keeps me running, both mentally and physically. Yoga helps me stay focused and present, as well as injury-free. It has taught me how to listen to my body and to run mindfully. My running goals are achieved because of my yoga practice.
Favorite Maine adventure/road trip?
This is another tough one! I have a lot of favorite nooks in this beautiful state, but one of my absolute favorite places to be is Bar Harbor. It is about a three hour drive from my home, so it can officially count as a day trip. The scenery is breathtaking and you get the best of both worlds; mountains and ocean. Running in that area is both challenging (can you say, HILLS?) and rewarding, yet the hours simply fly by. I have many special memories with my husband and sons in that area, and look forward to many more!
Favorite Yoga Sutra?
Yoga Sutra 2:43 -- From contentment unsurpassed, happiness is obtained.
Finding contentment in our daily lives can be a challenge, especially when faced with ups and downs, highs and lows, successes and failures. Happiness CAN be found when can find acceptance; acceptance of conditions, others and ourselves. Learn to find contentment in the face of challenge and adversity, and you will truly find happiness.
