Today is the second time I participated in yoga/stretching classes.
What a blessing! 🙂
I could not be happier and prouder of myself to have tried, explored, benefited, and liked these sessions!
I am so lucky; last year I had tried these classes as a new year’s resolution and had attended for a full month. After that I either got too busy with work or could not afford them.
This year, even though I was still hesitant due to its monthly fee ($100), I re-started them. New Year resolution? I am not sure. Not directly. I rather wanted to have things I liked in my life and this was on top of my list. So, here I am.
I am so lucky that the studio is 5 min away from my home – so rain, snow, or shine does not matter.
I am lucky that there are late-evening classes – so I do not need to rush back from my office to attend the classes or forced to take the classes in the morning or something.
I am lucky that every day there are classes, including the weekends, when my daily schedule is even more permissive.
I am lucky that there are different instructors that train us – I have some favorite ones that are kind, explain things well, and most importantly, contribute to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere by their low but clear voices.
I am lucky that I like the building and the rooms; their colors, lighting, temperature (pretty warm and comfortable), and the clean floors.
I am lucky that my mind fully relaxes and empties when I am there. That is so surprising for me. How awesome 🙂
I am lucky that the stretching poses work for my body – I feel my muscles more than before and I am happy to notice my muscles again.
I am lucky that my lower back and shoulders benefit from all the stretches, not to count my legs, arms, neck, and upper back.
I am lucky that I have time and interest to keep going.
I am lucky that I have money to attend these classes.
I am lucky that it is my ME TIME. Mine and mine only – no work, no thoughts, no stress, no worries.
I am lucky that I have prioritized the well-being of my body and my mind at the same time by deciding to attend these classes.
I hope you have such things in life that makes you feel lucky! Good about yourself! Good about your life!
