As always, I love Claudia...
Like Claudia, my cardio may consist largely of books and snail mail, but I have
renewed my yoga practice. The longest I've gone so far is 10 consecutive days before skipping a day. I started with a 30 min. practice on January 5, but quickly moved back into an hour practice. For several years my regular home practice was an hour and fifteen minutes, and a longer, slow practice seems to work better for me.
I'm rolling out my yoga mat each morning and setting the timer for an hour which feels about right, although sometimes I go over the hour. When I finish, I feel relaxed, but energized. Tai Chi was the same way, providing that unusual combination of physical and mental relaxation with a sense of energy.
My goal is to manage 30 consecutive days of practice, but in the 19 days since I started, I've only skipped 4 days and that is encouraging. Maybe I'll make 30 days at some point, but if can keep up a regular practice, I will be happy.
