Dragonborn

If you’ve ever played Skyrim, you don’t need an explanation. If you haven’t played Skyrim, and don’t know what is a Dragonborn, well… you should really play Skyrim. But basically, it means one who has been born with the blood and soul of a dragon.

Today, in my Thursday morning Hot Flow Yoga class, we did the “Flying Dragon” pose, and I can’t say it enough, it’s by far been my favorite yoga pose. Which obviously means I must be Dragonborn.

Obviously.

The teacher that has taken over the Thursday class at Pranashanti is absolutely amazing. She has great energy and the 1 hour class almost feels short because I’m having so much fun. Keep in mind that this class starts at 6:30 AM – and I am NOT a morning person, so that truly says a lot.

My main goal is to practice my fold at least once a day until I can do it with my legs straight.

“It’s about progress. Not perfection.”

Tonight I will keep working on my artwork for “Beans Now. Steak Later.”
Please refer to my last blog post to see what I am talking about!

Here’s what it looks like so far:

Updates to come!

Have a great day lovelies.

Hot Yoga & “Super Better”

Well… My 6:30 AM Hot Yoga class kicked my ass this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever been that sweaty in my entire life. It was excruciating… But absolutely worth it.

To be fair, I’m very new at yoga practice, and I am not flexible to begin with. This makes this entire process a lot of work for me. BUT, I’m sticking to it, and enjoying it more and more each day.

This is the yoga studio I’ve been visiting lately:

In other exciting news… This morning I pre-ordered Super Better by Jane McGonigal, and I am Super Excited, haha. The book will be released September 15th, 2015, but you can pre-order it here on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=super+better

Super Better by Jane McGonigal

Super Better by Jane McGonigal

I was first introduced to Jane McGonigal in Tim Ferris’ podcast: Jane McGonigal on Getting More Done with Less Stress and The Health Benefits of Gaming.

Basically, she does a lot of research that involves the health benefits associated with playing video games – and that of course, is right up my alley!

Where can I sign up to be a part of this research?!

Have a lovely Tuesday! xx
