I've been doing dance workout videos and pilates videos just to try something new and get me back in the habit of exercising regularly, but I was intimidated about getting back into yoga. I missed it, but I was ashamed of how much time had passed, and I didn't know how to overcome my pride so that I could start over again. Lo and behold, Instagram came to the rescue! There's a photo challenge going on called #mayibeginyoga, started by a popular yogi known as BeachYogaGirl. I'm not participating in the actual challenge, but with May 1st approaching I figured this would be an excellent opportunity to get back at it.
|Hands together. This is as close as I can get them for now.|
"Yoga builds confidence. Just remember to breathe, move slowly, and smile."
"It's your practice. It's a yoga buffet. Pick and choose."

Now I can say that I got over my pride and I'm back! I'm a little rusty but if tonight's class is any indication, it'll come back to me like riding a bicycle. I'm so happy that I'm restarting my yoga practice. I feel like I've gotten a part of myself back.
