Have you voted yet today? If so, good for you! If not, I hope you get to it eventually. Hubby and I will be going after he gets home from work.
Anyway, I've decided to start doing yoga on a daily basis again. I have scoliosis in my upper back, and when I neglect it, I pay for it with pain and worsened asthma. Surprise, surprise, that's been happening. So, it's time for a change in routine.
A number of years ago, I picked up the 15 Minute Yoga Box, by Barbara Currie. It's a small book with cards detailing beginner yoga poses and instructions on how to do them. I've taken part in enough yoga classes and events to know when instructions are wonky, and how not to hurt myself while doing the poses. I don't generally buy into exercise or diet fads, but this little box has helped me in the past.
Since today's Tuesday, and I skipped the last Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, I'll just post a little teaser from this book.
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"Once the mind is quiet and calmed by deep breathing, yoga exercises, and meditation, we can then learn to control our minds and discipline them to create and enjoy our heart's desires. This power is not unusual, we are in fact using it every moment of every day: it is the power of our imagination." - 15 Minute Yoga, by Barbara Currie
Please remember, while this philosophy has helped me and others like me, that doesn't mean I'm saying it works for everyone, or that it's a cure for any sort of mental illness, like depression. We all walk our own paths, and we are the only ones who can decide which turns work best for us.
