Don’t you just love the feeling of conquering a goal that you have set for yourself? Whether it’s running a race, completing a school assignment, or loosing extra pounds; it always feels amazing to accomplish something, even if the road was difficult to get there.
I have been doing yoga for about four months now. When I first began I thought of myself as a fairly flexible person. I could touch my toes with ease and had very good balance from my many years of ice skating as a child. Little did I know that I was not as flexible nor strong as I thought I was. Yoga has whipped me into shape. I truly love the things that yoga has taught me, such as being more aware of my body, my breathing and focus. I have seen my self improve so much from when I first began. My strength (especially my core) and flexibility has increased ten-fold. If you want intense abs muscles, DO YOGA!
So the new thing that I have conquered, as of late, is a head stand…I don’t know any of the fancy yoga names as my classes are taught in Korean and I have no idea what they are saying, but a head stand sums it up I think. It took my a long time to build up my core strength before I was able to do this, but now I can do it fairly easily.
It feels good to set a goal and then see the positive results in the end. I am not to sure what my next goal in yoga is, but the next time I can do some new crazy move, I will post it!
